After fly fishing now for about a year, one of my favorite things about it is that the fly doesn't discriminate.
This weekend proved it once again.
Largemouth Bass- on my craw that I posted in the "what are tying" thread
The Guadalupe X Smallmouth
Gray Redhorse sucker -
The Clouser with black zonker strip has been one of my favorite flys lately.
Banded Water Snake -
I'm not scared of snakes really, but said favorite fly is stuck in the grapevine about three feet from the snakes face. I yanked and yanked, but they don't come out of that grapevine. I yanked still harder and the limb he is on is moving around, that should scare him off. No. My buddies are laughing at me now. One said "just poke him with you rod, he'll move". I poked him a couple time and he rears his head up about to strike at my rod tip. I want my fly back but now I've got the sucker agitated. I could have probably just reached up and grab it at the start and it wouldn't have minded. So I just keep yanking and the snake is swinging, finally my 12# fluorocarbon breaks.
Oh well, I'll tie some more.
River Crab -
Sunday afternoon I though I'd try out some small stuff.
Smallest fly I've tied, size 10. I really admirer you guys that can tie those small flys.
Thanks for letting me share.
