Thread: Random Act of Kindness - FREE 7/8wt Reel

    My bunny strip leech pattern isn't beautiful, but they work.
    Can you use them? I tie them in 2 colors, black and brown crawfish.
    Let me know.

Woolies are EZ for the club guys to tie and fill in the gap if the water isn't clear that day.

    They did the 2013 event right before I joined so I just got to see slide shows and that really inspired me to learn to tie. Most caught fish and they were smiling like 8 year olds on their first bluegill.
    Sounds good, I will tie up some size 16 nymphs when I get back home.

    Forgot to mention the good Kharma I'm sending Geoff's way for the very generous act of kindness, way to play it forward!

    It's hard to beat how well a bunny strip leech works, the action in the water just makes it too irrestible for the fish!

    Sounds like a good pattern if they are fairly small. In my limited experience on these small waters less is more. #12 Wooly generally out performs a #8, #16-18 nymphs much better than a #14 etc. That's been the case around here this year anyway.

    No particular quantity of flies is needed either. The fly boxes the chapter provides do not have to be identical. They just try to fill them with flies appropriate for a first time flyfisher.

    I usually tie them in size 10 and 8. But I will tie them in size #12 in those2 colors and mix them with/without the bead heads.

    Sounds great, bead heads have been very consistent here. Just PM me when they are ready, and again there is no rush.

    Geoff

    The reel arrived today and it looks like new. I have waited a month to try out my 8WT rod so THANK YOU so much.

    The flies you donated for the cancer cause are also nice. They are absolutely what we use in our small trout streams here. They will be donated next meeting, which leaves me a few days to shamelessly try to duplicate them while I have them.
