Jim,

thats the kinda fly that will make a 100+ lb tarpon definitely raise an eyebrow, if they had them.

you will become hopelessly addicted. there is just something about'em that makes you all wobbly kneed when the take the fly, and then take to the air several times. it is a magnificent feeling

A buddy of mine recently put out a DVD and book about cathing trophy trout. His name is Landon Mayer and the book and movie are titled "How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life." I've never caught a huge trout before, but he catches these monsters all the time.

I too have had problems catching huge fish on a fly rod. I have caught plenty of gills and bass and catfish. the catfish were the biggest things I caught. maybe 15 inches or more? one time I did get a bite on a black bugger that was something huge but I don't know what it was cause I blew it and it got away! I agree with the saying bigger is better. but maybe not always? I have heard some fish are very picky and only eat very small flies. this would be brown trout tho. if bigger is better what size buggers do you guys use for say 10-15 inch bass?
I have some made is size 6,8,and 10

Holy Cow. I had to go out and run some errands, going overseas this weekend. I come back and it's like Christmas again. You folks are amazing. I need some time to read and digest.

I watched a show where a guy was looking for the BIG BROWN, I dont remember who it was, But anyway the guy said the big fish was like big deer nocternal. They eat at night basicly. I dont know how true this is, But he did catch a monster brown. So maybe stay out that extra hour at dusk or get in the water a hour earlier.

I have tried night fishing once.

All i caught was a swollen knee.

Studies say the Monsters come out at night.

It makes sense.
