more fish finally

I had a chance to get on the creek for a bit after work today. I had the creek to myself it seemed and the parking areas were empty, so I thought it might be good fishing. After trying a few flys with no luck I ended up putting this tiny orange tuffed thing on, and the strikes came non stop, ended up catching a few tiny bright orange sunfish, the last catch of the day was neat, as it was getting darker I got the fish in and made a no handle release. then the fish just swam next to my feet for the...

I dont know about everyone else but it has been burtally hot out... I havent had a chance to get line wet in almost 3 weeks, not becasue of the weather but my days off have not been on my normal day so it is messing with my fishing. Looks like itll be in the 80s this week so I hope i can get out one morning to catch a few.

well, I had a good session in the yard tonight, trying to use the tips from here. I was able to haul and shoot out all but 6 or 7 wraps of flyline on the reel, and was able to repeat the cast several times, my overhead casting isnt hitting the ground or knoting , atleast tonight. Ill get the video cam again next week to post again on my progress. I hope to get back on the creek next week. or pond.
