Nice crappie. If you are catching alot of crappies you could easily win a fishing contest on this other site I belong to.

Do you drift? Jig? or slowly pull in your flies?

Hi Mike,
I slowly strip the fly back in, casting along the bank. When I have just a
few feet of line from the tip top, I'll often pause for several seconds to see
if one of the fish decides to go for it. They often do! As I said in my first post,
I had a crappie take a wooly bugger that was dangling in the water (I was
tying on another for my wife). Many of the takes have been really subtle, and
I often pause to watch for any movement of the fly line. I don't use an indicator, but seeing the line move an inch back is a good indication that it's time to set the hook .

O and that spot your fishing is one of my favorite spots. They just nail the fly in there.
