Default Great evening on the creek. meet and greet

well, a few days ago a friend emails me a note about a fly fishing club having a meeting at the creek i do most of my fishing, so I attended said meeting this afternoon. there was 40 people there to my surprise. before and after this meeting/dinner I got some fishing in and managed to capture a few small bass and share some stories with others there. after our meeting I hit the creek again. this is were it got interesting, I was working a deep hole next to a root wad when I see a dark shape swimming toward me. this thing looked huge! then it got closer and I realized it was a beaver. that surprised me a bit. all in all another good day on the creek. and now i have a sorce to learn more ff techniques!

Glad you had a good day! Always good to have resources to help understand a creek or river and the fish that inhabit it. Like Brad Pitt said, "It's gonna take me three more years to think like a fish!"

Mike,

That sounds like a great afternoon. I'm a bit envious.

There are no ff clubs down here where I'm at, and the only guy I ever fly fish with moved up to Stuart, about 3 1/2 hours north. That really got me motivated to get my boat splashed, since we always went out in his skiff.

So instead of fishing today, I patched a rod holder hole for a holder I had to eliminate to extend my rod compartment (which was too short for fly rods), removed the rub rail and began sanding down the hull to get it ready for painting.

I've seriously been thinking about putting an add in the paper (after my boat is splashed and I've got the new motor broken in, and have caught some dolphin and tuna for dinners) to see if anyone would like to start a FF Club. There's got to be somebody down here that likes to fly fish!

So it sounds like you had a great afternoon to me, Mike. I'm sure it will be worth your while.

Cheers,
Jim

couldnt even think about it, everyone here has been beyond helpful in the new venture.

wjc, I know what you mean the fishing in the area is typically a spincast bass tourney/ catfish bait fishing area. so the ff crowd I think is pretty small in comparison, I grew up fishing that methode and got out of it for awhile, I have a new found enjoyment in my new methode of fishing and it seems the ff crowd respects the quarry alot more. good fun! if you make it to kentucky ill be happy to share the waters.

January isn't the best fishing anywhere I've been, but sailfishing is usually pretty good then. I know a good spot 5 1/2 miles from where I'm sitting. A little less at high tide, then I can cut between Dove and Rodreques Keys.

The biggest problem with the winter is the trade winds. Keep in touch for sure as the date approaches. The only thing more fun for me than catching sails and tarpon is watching someone catch his first.

In the meantime, I'm going to be working on two different techniques for teasing sails up for the fly, soon as I get my boat in the water. One has never been tried here before and I have high hopes for it.

Cheers,
Jim
