Biography:
I've contracted a terrible case of trout-bum-itis. Further complications involve having an incurable desire to fish for other things that swim and will eat flies. The only temporary cure is hooking one of these things. And then it begins anew. I've got a fever, and the only prescription... is more fishing!

Afternoon Steel

by gatortransplant on 02-09-2012 at 01:42 PM
While a lot of you may be familiar with how open my schedule was last semester for fishing, this semester is a bit more hectic. However, I still have Wednesdays off so I decided to take the opportunity to get out fishing for steelhead, as recently they've been calling to me.

My pursuit of steelhead had been put on hold as of late. Until this past Sunday I had not set out to catch steelhead since early December. This past Sunday, however, a few friends and I decided that steelhead

Tying the Ellicott Special

by gatortransplant on 10-26-2011 at 08:38 PM
Ok, so as some of you may know, I caught my first steelhead with a fly rod yesterday:

I have to make this distinction because I have caught a steelhead before, on a fly no less, but the fly was attached to my cheater stick, a spinning rod. This was before I stepped into the light. Carrying on, I caught this steelhead on a fly of my own design (read: I tied whatever was in reach of my hands on in a

Diving headfirst into fly tying

by gatortransplant on 10-08-2011 at 09:39 AM
So I picked up a vise and a bucketload of materials and have been tying like crazy. I tried that "tie 100 wooly buggers approach" but made it through five before wanting to try all sorts of crazy patterns. Now buggers are tied in all colors in between other patterns as technique practice and box filler, because I still love buggers and know that I will never have enough. Tie number 6 was a crayfish pattern that I basically BSed after looking at photos of real crayfish and some patterns

Welcoming the monkey to my back...

by gatortransplant on 09-24-2011 at 07:13 PM
Well, I figure it is about time to write my first blog entry. I have been taking up fly fishing in earnest, attempting to get out and cast at any species I can at least once a day. I have been lucky enough to get out on Cattauragus Creek twice now, but as yet have been unable to land any trout on the new rod. I can't complain though, because the Allen outfit that I am fishing is one heck of a set-up. Granted, I don't have much experience casting and using many different set-ups, but I can get the
