Re: Small Wooly Bugger

Thanks for the advice. I will give a few of these a try. I really like the idea of the griffiths gnat mod. I am still fairly new at tying and need to get more comfortable at making changes to a...

Re: Calf hair vs Deer tail for Clousers

Thanks for the suggestions. There was a grain of truth in both. I was certainly grabbing too much hair in a clump. I keep forgetting how sparse a Clouser is supposed to be. I checked out some...

Re: Boys Santa was good!!!!

I have to agree with the comment above. When my 10 yr old son opened his combo flyrod the look on his face was awesome. He was so happy to have his very one setup. He has used one of mine a bunch...

Re: 2014 Fish Goals

About 3 years ago (just before I got into flyfishing), I wanted to do more fishing. Between work and family I would not get out for long stretches of time and would be frustrated. Part of it was me...

Re: how to fish an emerger?

That was an excellent video to watch. I have only been flyfishing for 2 seasons and do a lot of reading. That video made more clear to me than hours of reading. When they are working their way to...

Re: First time using flyfishing guide

Thanks for all the advice. This is a wade fishing trip.

Re: Dry Fly Hackle and Elk Hair Caddis

I thought I was the only one who got progressively better and then tied a few that are a mess. I think I am good at it finally and then stop paying attention to the technique and the fly shows it. ...

Re: Dry Fly Hackle and Elk Hair Caddis

Thanks for the feedback. I did tie some of them today and as a rookie I have to say it is cool to see how the 6th one looks better than the first one! I am also learning that the little comments in...

Re: Frustrating Day

I know the White Clay Creek on the PA side and know what you mean. It really rises and falls with the rain and does a lot of drainage for the area. It is nice since it is close.

Re: Time for some slab gills!

Looks like a good time. I took my son (age 10) and daughter out to a local pond yesterday. We caught quite a few bluegill and small bass. We brought about a dozen of the bluegill home for dinner. ...
