Re: Double Hook Streamers

I don't have much experience, but i tie mine with toothy critter wire leader looped through the rear hook eye and tied/glued to the front hook. I just started adding a crimp bead at either end of the...

Re: Fly for Large Mouth Bass

I should call this the abominator......I had the same thought, so I messed around. I haven't been able to really fish it yet, but I did cast it and it casts easily with an 8 wt with a 2/0 front...

Re: For the Sage VT2 lovers!!!

Sweet! I love it when they discontinue rods. That's the only way I an ever afford them.

Carp Flies

These are some of the carp flies that I tie regularly. They're all versions of existing patterns for the most part.

Re: Carp!

I use a 6wt almost always, although a 7 or 8 certainly won't hurt. Where I fish it's usually pretty short, fast, accurate casts, so the 6wt works better(and fish average 10 lbs. or less). I only...

Re: Beginner Outfit

I started with a st. croix combo. I 'outgrew' it in about a year, but really it's a good rod. The reel was junk, although it still works. I don't think it matters much what you start with, so long as...

Re: Carp!

From my experience, no, but who knows? I've only caught them with nymphs as they were actively feeding, and was able to get my fly right at their mouth. I really don't know if they even intended to...

Re: Carp!

Could be...most of them are supposedly sterile, but they'll 'play' spawn. You should be able to tell by the coloring if you can get close enough. Commons are obviously orange/gold. The grassies have...

Re: Carp!

I fish Moss Lake on a regular basis, which is pretty close to you, I think. I went yesterday, and they hammered a #10 carp carrot. I've never had any luck getting them on top. The only time I've seen...

Re: how would you catch carp here?

I'm afraid I can't help you with that, but I would guess they're eating midges. I've only targeted them while they're feeding head down. There may be a more accessible area nearby where you have a...

Re: Southeast Fly Fishing Forum

I have a Mac, so I don't have all that spyware garbage, but I try to log on everyday and it's still down.

Re: Grass Carp?

I doubt anyone would pay to flyfish for grass carp. They are a very frustrating fish and a really a disappointing fight compared to commons. Carp are in almost every lake in this country, so there...

Re: Southeast Fly Fishing Forum

I hope they get it figured out soon. That's the only forum that I visited regularly. It's nice to see a few familiar faces at least.

Re: Best Six Weight Reel at around 100 bucks?

The Sage 1600 series is right at $100 bucks, and isn't bad. I haven't fished with the Orvis, but I'm considering getting one now.
