Re: Crayfish Patterns?

Larry, that is a small lobster.

Our Ozark waters are full of crayfish. This is what I am tying up these days. I am hoping that the jig hook and dumb bell eyes makes this sit like a real craw in...

Re: What have you been tying today?

Yes it is "Cheech's Low Fat Minnow". I take absolutely NO credit for this design whatsoever.

Re: Itch's Trip Report

Itchy,

Looks cold, but good. It's been awhile since I was there but I really miss it. That Leprechaun was a little creepy. I hope they drink Fat Cow for St. Patty's day up there.

Re: Kabuto Glass rods

I owned a rod built on a 7'3 Kabuto blank. To me it was on the fast side of glass. Too fast, as it seemed to really like a 4wt. line in my hands. I have heard that the 8'0 5wt. is the sweetheart...

Re: New to fly fishing. What to use at Roaring River

Welcome to the forum.

+1 on what everyone else said here. I personally don't fish the Roaring River, but what I have read is sound advice. Presentation trumps fly selection in most instances.

Re: Fly rod brand of choice: Bamboo rods

Re: My grandfathers J.C. Higgins 312.31130

Not trying to respond in a flippant manner, but you may want to buy a scale or take it to the post office or even the grocery store to get the weight.

Re: Want To Catch Big Trout?

What dean_mt said... The OP must have edited something as there is only 1 image of an angler who appears to be making a stealthy presentation. That's it. Perhaps it is a Jedi exercise?
