Since 90% of the trouts diet is taken underwater. I'll tie on a streamer at the car & fish that for a while & then I'll usually goto a nymph. I usually don't search with drys.

I have a good neighbor who let me use his 6' Orvis Battenkill and 7'6" Thomas & Thomas bamboo rods to chase wild brookies with. I love the slow bamboo rods! Most of my graphite are slow as well.

I just finished epoxying the reel seat to my first bamboo blank finishing job....Can't wait to fish it. I have to wait a month until the varnish fully cures....Click the image to open in full size.

I plan to used boo in the salt for sea bass....I tied up a few patterns in Carries style to match the local bait fish to toss in the salt with a boo rod. Should be fun to experiment with.

I just love Carries patterns.....

fishing or catching??

there is nothing as beautiful as a fish rising to a dry fly. however, there are times when you can present every fly in every size known to man and you'll see no action. streamers, nymphs always create strikes when there is little or no action on the surface. there is no substitute for a beadhead with a dropper.

Dries are my favorite, but nymphing is more productive.
