Re: Walleye fun!

I have had good success with walleye using a leech pattern that uses black rabbit strip for the back and long tail. Easy to tie, and can be deadly on trout too.

Re: First build,any advice?

Take it slow and easy on your first round. I'll bet once you've built one, you'll be bit by the rod building bug.

Re: Single Best Fishing Tip

Keep your fly in/on the water as much as possible, which means cut back on the false casting.
