Re: Am I missing out by not using an indicator?

Don't know if I ever did it with a fly rod, but have many times as a kid I used a bobber with a jig for crappies on spin tackle. Jigging like that will produce fish, especially of you find the right...

My evil influence...

I do a lot of spiritual direction and a young man I advise just told me he's taken up the fly rod this summer.

His next trip here, he's bringing his rod for casting help....

Re: New to fly fishing

Welcome!

You never go wrong with wooly buggers in black, white, olive and brown. Brown close to the bottom can roughly imitate crayfish for smallies.

I like the bunny streamer and mouse...

Re: Beginner Fly fisherman

I'd second this. I still use the basic kit and do ok.

Extra bobbins are good. That was the one tool I soon found myself buying more of just so I did not have to keep switching thread spools.

Re: Ready to try some wet wading

A tip I read somewhere: You can create a lug for a boot with 1/4" or so long hex sheet metal screws. Self-tapping can be screwed right into the boot sole, so they say.

like these:...

Re: Locating panfish post spawn.

Let us know what you find. It sounds like perfection in a lake.

I head out for vacation Sunday on a good lake for bass, panfish, and catfish. The water's likely to be up and it's new lake we'll...

Re: Revisting the "Brookie" of the Bass world

That looks like you have quite an opportunity. In my seminary days, during spring break and so forth I traveled across the Clinch several times. Always looked beautiful but never had a chance to fish...

Re: Locating panfish post spawn.

The bluegill spawn will be an ongoing process, well into June and beyond here in Kansas. I've taken spawning bluegills in July here. You're further north, and I'd imagine the window goes further into...

Re: Revisting the "Brookie" of the Bass world

That looks really neat. A coosas bass is a new fish to me, and that setting is unlike any bass fishing I've ever done.

I see you're wearing a jacket. Was it that cool?

Re: Suggestions for July trip

This sounds like great advice. Gates has a stellar reputation. For you, it should be easy to get to as well--Turnpike across Ohio, snake around Toledo to U.S 23 North and and I-75 North. Pretty much...

Re: how to porperly fight Fish with a Click and Pawl Reel?

Probably not. World class sprinters run 25-30 mph and take 9-10 seconds to run the 100 meter dash (roughly a fly line and backing). I figure the truck's going at least another 15-20 mph over that at...

Re: how to porperly fight Fish with a Click and Pawl Reel?

I might add: you can help yourself out a good deal with the rod and keeping pressure on the guides. I look at the drag as an emergency device for when the fish surges. You can anticipate when you...

Re: Indicator rod

That's a really odd choice of weight for a rod dedicated to nymphing. More for pitching larger streamers.

I like #2, but modifying the fish.

The fish definitely needs an eye.

Re: Science behind slot limits?

Here in Kansas they use these a lot with largemouth bass. Anything 13-18" goes back.

They say that size bracket helps control panfish numbers.

Re: New Toys & Getting Started in Fly Fishing!

First of all, excellent review!



A kid can get into flyfishing by what they can earn mowing lawns.
