    Speaking of temperature, it's in the upper 70's here!

    I forgot to thank John for putting this all together. You're one of the good ones.

    Now I'm jealous cause mine haven't come in yet. Thanks Boz for running this.

    I forgot to put my name on my flies. They would be the ones that are green and blue buck tail on #6 diachi hooks with the bead chain eyes.

    The air temp was 85* yesterday. I sat at work imagining how the watershed was exploding with hungry fish. It stayed warm through the night and I was excited to get out this morning and test out the Clousers from the swap. I got to the water at 9:00, 62*, no wind and overcast. The action was steady for about 90 minutes until the sun came out and ruined it for me. I didn't get through all of them, but the ones I fished did well. My stick of choice for these flies was a 9' 6Wt, here's how they did:

    8 mcnerney-Red Foxee Clouser
    Heavy lead eyes, this one sank like a brick and got blasted on the way down on the very first cast.


    2 sumojo- own creation
    This one worried me. Well tied but my first impression was that hook shank was too short. I was anticipating a few missed strikes but it proved me wrong, hooking up on the first bite.


    1 theboz- Antron Beast-RECIEVED
    Awesome tie, the antron was pretty thick and it suspended the fly just below the surface. After two misses it landed a nice Crappie



    7 Pocono- Shad Clouser-
    I thought the size on this was sure to stir up some scrappy Bluegills but I was wrong, she landed me this nice Crappie



    9 Rip Tide-Borski Slider
    Rip's Slider didn't disappoint either


    14 stenacron-Black Nosed Dace Clouser
    Other fish on the first cast was Stenacron's synthetic



    13 wtbash-Yellow and Black Clouser
    This one worried me too. A perfect SM Clouser but I thought the hook might be too big for Crappie. I was wrong again



    10 FrankB2-char/white gold flash Clouser
    Frank's fly earned "high hook" for the day landing me this brute of a Crappie. I landed 3 on this one before I swapped it out



    6 baseman1- Blue/Green Clouser
    Baseman1 I'm sorry to say that a nasty Pickerel crushed your fly and eventually took it away


    A weary bunch,but they seem to be smiling

    I'm sorry I didn't get everyone's flies in the water today, once the sun came up the water was crystal clear and the fish scattered. I will fish the rest as soon as I can.

    This was also the new pup's first fishing trip

    Swirlchaser: Nice review on the Clousers. I just knew there were a bunch of killer flies tied up in that swap, good to see you were having success until the sun came full up.

    Thanks guys, I love fishing flies from a swap. I've been fishing Clousers since the day I started flyfishing and I'm still learning from ties others have done. Some times when you tie a pattern so much you fall into a rut and never try anything new. Some of these patterns surprised me and you can be sure I will copy them
