Thread: Family Pond

  1. #1

    Default Family Pond

    First post here. Haven't fly fished in several years. Brushing up on my skills before a redfish trip this week. I had forgotten how much fun the fly rod can be. These were caught at my brother's pond.

    Used my wife's grandfather's 9' 7wt fiberglass rod with a sinking tip line for a couple of bass. The rod is probably at least 40 years old, kind of slow but still fun




    Used my custom 8 1/2' 4wt and dry flies for a couple of pretty decent bluegill

    The 4wt was made by a Winston employee, my brother in law's nephew about 12 years ago. Not technically a Winston but pretty darn close.

    It was for my 40th birthday from my lovely wife!!!
