Re: General Discussion for Smallmouth

IMHO, Ed Shenk's White Streamer is without a question THE BEST smallmouth fly for Ohio waters. Nothing is more fun than poppers, but if you want to consistently catch the largest smallmouth in the...

Re: How did you get interested in Tying?

I was 6 years old, watching my grandfather tie waxworm looking things with waxed twine to catch all the bluegill and crappie we could carry. He gave me a vise 42 years ago and I spend at least a day...

Re: Fly Suggestions for south west Ohio

Do you find that level 5/6 floating frustrating to cast? If your line is landing in a heap rather than nicely laying out for your, particularly with bass bugs, poppers or weighted flies you might...

Re: The mulberry "hatch"--CARP

I have seen grass carp chasing these on the surface like a big brown after a hexagenia! Great looking fly!

Working on variations of the Semper Fleye to look like baby largemouth, baby brownies, river chubs and shad.

Re: Fly Suggestions for south west Ohio

Everything EJSELL said, plus Shenk's White Streamer no smaller than #4, and something like Semper Fleye (Hollow Fly) on nothing smaller than #1/0. Trust me, go big for largemouth, smallmouth,...

More than half the intense enjoyment of fly...

Re: The mulberry "hatch"--CARP

Re: Insomniac fun with spun antelope hair

I like it too. I gave them to the guy who gave me the fir and he thought they were cool. He only has a 3wt and I told him that he was going to hate me when he tries to cast these with that rod.
