casting

Posted 06-27-2011 at 10:26 PM by mbphotos54

more casting in the yard tonight, I think I am getting better. I cleaned the line and rod and the casting was nicer, I also tried a stiffer shorter rod and kinda like the way it casts, It seems my loops are more open and the tip doesnt bounch around when I stop the rod, how to get back out on the water this week. if these storms would stop flooding the creek..

First catch

Posted 06-26-2011 at 08:24 PM by mbphotos54

Well, I had the chance to get to the pond for a few hours today, I was hoping to have some good luck but this is fishing. By the time I got the the pond the shore I could cast from was already crowded so I was limited to one 50ft swatch of shore, no biggie. about 3 fly changes in I decided to try a popper, wasnt sure what to expect being the biggest fly I have casted so far. few casts in I watched the popper get a hit! was one of the biggest bluegills I have seen in along time, big enough it was...

well I was going to head to the pond tonight, but it will have to wait. So i did some yard casting instead. Not sure if its the combo of the gear I have or just me but the line and loops wiggle about mid stroke.. otherwise my side arm casting at a faster pace does ok. I was able to set the fly down in the same place repeditivly, and no knots this time! yeah! weather permitting ill hit the pond tomarrow.

Day one on the Water

Posted 06-22-2011 at 07:33 PM by mbphotos54

well first day on real water was a bust, the creek I had planed to fish today was swelling from alot of rain over the last few days, and throw in an average of 15-20mph winds that location was a bust, I did get to cast a bit there and did get in a few rollcasts. I decided to try a small pond here close by, and one side was out of the wind but it was the corner where the grass carp are rolling right now, so more casting practice was had. now that I think about it I dont know what I would have done...
