day on the creek

Posted 06-29-2011 at 10:04 PM by mbphotos54

Well I had the idea of getting up early and being the first one at the local creek, so i was! I was glad to atleast be the first on the water today. So I began my quest and trying not to cast into a tree. I was able to make some good well placed casted that resulted in a good strike but still nothing held on long enough to get hooked.

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..

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...

Tarpon Day 7= Final Day

Posted 06-26-2011 at 08:20 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well it finally came, the last day of 2011 Tarpon Trip. And we got off to a much better start than Day 5! The guide was on time. We got the jump on the competition for the flat we like best. About 10 minutes after we arrive on our spot 2 other boat came slowly cruising up and then motor for other waters. The wind was up and there was a fair amount of cloud cover but this was predicted to clear up before noon. Things were looking good!!

Due to our early start and arrival on site we had...
