Re: Another best Fly question ???
I haven't fished for them on purpose, but while fishing for bass have caught a few in a pond I fish from time to time at the end of last summer. They took a fly I tied for bass off the top water. The fly is basically a deer hair head and black marabou with some green flash on the sides. It's a killer fly that floats for awhile and then stays right under the surface for quick short strips. Each time I caught crappie on it, it was sitting on the top. It might have been the same crappie by the way, since everyone says that there are no crappie in that pond. Someone took a picture on their cell phone one day to send to a friend just to prove that there was at least one crappie in that pond. I used floating line and was fishing then with my Cortland CL 6/7 weight, which I happen to love. In fact I just caught a few trout, including a beautiful 15" brookie this weekend with her on a small tributary of the upper Delaware.
