Re: Tying a bass leader

How big of streamers/bass bugs are you using? Also, what kind of fly line?


Bass leaders don't need to be overly complicated at all. If I'm throwing smaller streamers like size 2-6 buggers, then...

Re: Pike and Muskie line questions

Outbound short would be my choice as well.

Where in MN are you going to be working this summer, and when are you going to be there?

If sometime early June, then you'll be okay tossing smaller...

Re: Starter SMB fly box

Clousers really can't be beat. Tequillys for summer, some yellow or white poppers, Murdich minnows, and maybe just a few simple sz 2-6 woolly buggers in white or black.



I will add this little...

Re: Best site for bass flies?

Depends on how much you want to spend and what flies your really looking for. Blockhead poppers are relatively cheap because not a whole lot of effort needs to go into them. Well tied deer hair...

Re: Pike line problem

I use snap swivels on a lot of my leaders. But you need to be aware of the weight/size of the swivels because they will affect the movement of your flies. It also depends on the type of bite guard...

Re: Pike line problem

I'd ditch the streamer express, but that's just me. Fish poppers on a slow sinking intermediate like itchmesir said, and get yourself a better sink line that doesn't coil as bad as streamer express...

Re: You just paid $50 for nippers. What's Next?

As I was sitting on the banks of my local today, clipping the tag end of a knot off with Abel Nippers, I thought to myself... "I wish I hadn't left my chapstick in the car." I then proceeded to not...

Re: Musky on a Fly

I just quoted a few points that I disagree a bit with


Casting a fast action rod is no more laborious than casting a slow action rod. When casting musky flies, it's all tough. If you don't have...

Re: Itch's Trip Report

I'm just thinking out loud here, but I think we need to bring an additional fishing partner with us on our trips this year. Preferably someone who has some skill around a grill. Ha!

Re: Anyone fish a short rod on a kayak?

I'm also a fan of regular length rods in the 9' range in my kayak. I haven't had much trouble being able to land fish with them, so I've never felt a need to have a specialized kayak rod. I keep a...

Hey wait a second. Why don't you ever grill anything tasty like that up when I'm around? :)

That's a nice place to spend an afternoon.

Re: OK, What's a 9 wt for??

Like others have said, each fly rod is situational in nature. There are days where, if fishing for largemouth, a 6wt will do just fine. But there are others that I need to go up to a 8 or 9wt at...

Re: Spinning/Stacking Deer Hair

You're likely not tightening your thread enough. Make your two softer turns though, then start to tighten down like you normally would. Keep tightening it down until the hair doesn't want to spin...
