Re: Hit the Trifecta today.

I've thought about using some spray but haven't as of yet. It would be nice to get into some carp but for now cats will do.

Re: Hit the Trifecta today.

I made up an olive DDH Leech (or my best copy) with dumbell eyes. The reason I used the dumbell eyes instead of bead chain is to get it to sink faster.

I was j/k about the carp. I would love to...

Re: Hit the Trifecta today.

The worst part of the day was the wind.. It was blowing at about 25 mph nearly constantly. The only thing I have yet to catch out of that pond is a carp but with the cats I've been getting lately I...

Re: Another goal down

Funny thing is earlier I had something on the hook, either a carp or another cat, that broke my leader at my loop to loop connection. It was really making my drag scream.

Re: 'lil fly girl

She just turned 7. The fish were really hungry so they helped a lot I'm sure.
It was fun watching her try to work the line back in, the fish kept taking off and striping the line she pulled in back...

Tonight my daughter wanted to go play at the park so I said ok. After a while she got bored and asked if I could teach her to fly fish. I had to jump at the chance to have a fishing buddy. After a...

I was happy with the Three Forks combo from Cabelas. However I really do like the Wind River rod I bought from them so perhaps the Wind River combo would be better. I don't know anything about the...

Got to go to the pond and try out some of my flies that I've been tying, and they actually worked.

This one was on a foam beetle. It worked way better then the foam ant I tied.

Re: first 'gill on a dry this year

I love catching them on a dry. I like to watch for the "boil" right under the fly and hope that the 'gill will be big enough to take the fly, and if not its still fun to watch the little guy try.
