Great looking fish...and a great compliment :-)
I need some LMB flies, though I did have them eating mice I tie for browns last year. We want to see that fly box. Nice fish by the way.
guess who is finally going fishing this weekend?? :)
It's a nice feeling when someone (especially an accomplished fly fisher) asks to use a fly you've tied. I knew those Clousers had some bass in their future. Good work.
Nicely done Erin. Jay knows what's going to work!
Thanks to you all for reading and taking the time to comment. I'm going out again for bass tomorrow....and should probably tie up a few more tonight.Dustin ------- YES!!!! Can't wait to see a post about it!
'and should probably tie up a few more tonight', how many flies do you need? LOL Mind you if they are that good other people want to fish them keep tying :)I cannot comment i have more rods than i can shake a stick at :)Good luck with the bass
Tom - Ha! You have a point there...but, I like options. :) Yet, I have only one rod!
That's always a great compliment. The question is, how do you have them organized? Are they all a mess or lined up as little soldiers? Mine are usually the latter and I love to show them off, especially to non fly fishers. However, experienced eyes usually see my imperfections in them, but oh well, they catch fish!
Ja, Klausa's! Ha! You slid a box of flies across your hood!? EEP! Coming from the right person (Jay being one of those right people), it is an amazing compliment!
Now I know what I need to go to if the top is not working---although I love to see top water action.
JGR - In my creek box are neat little soldiers. My streamer box? There are problems in the ranks! Always disheveled, unshaven, and unevenly lined! And yep...the most important eyes are the fish's...and if they like it, who cares who else does or does not! :)Backcountryfishnerd - I did! I suppose that is why my car looks ragged and worn, eh? To hell with paint. ;) And yeah, I took it as quite the compliment! Bill - Ah! I got some "top water action" in today...it's so cool to see the fly just disappear!!! POW!
Nothing like sharing a bass pond (and flies) with a friend! Your flies are great and so is your blog! Mind if I follow along? :)
GoFisch - Nothing like it in the world! Thanks, and I would love it! ;-)
Reading your Blog is making me go out and buy a nice Starter Fly Combo today. Fly tying isnt in my near future however... slide your box this way!!
Steve - Man, you should! I was told that there is "nothing like foolin' a fish with your own fly." I was skeptical. Now, I believe!
Do you guys fish from a canoe a lot? I love the pace of fly fishing from a canoe. Good stuff.
Justin - Not a lot, I'd say...but am hoping to do more. This trip out was an encouragement....glassy waters, good "pace". Up until then, it had been white-capped waves. I was starting to swear the canoe was cursed! ;)
