I have been playing around with the EP grey fiber on the wire. Is this close to your "lost" fly?

General Discussion / Flyline management on poling skiff

Made this up. Have not tried it out on Mitzi but did cast in driveway. May need some smoothing out of base of tie wraps. I got about $25 in it. Got the idea from seeing Steve Soule similar pad from Carbon Marine ($100).

General Discussion / Guided trip with Scott Null
« on: August 31, 2012, 11:48:49 AM »
I fished a half day with Scott Null on Monday 8-27-12. I hooked 6 and landed four. I had two knots untie with fish on. From which I have caught some ribbing from cetain members and the guide. Please be on notice that you will not be fishing with me again. ;D We site casted to redfish in marsh with terns showing location of feeding reds. Used redfish crack fly. There is one picture posted the in the fishing reports section. Most action I have had in a long time.


Events and Information / Mini Expo/Knot tying table
« on: June 27, 2012, 06:54:30 AM »
I have volunteered to have a knot tying table at mini expo in August. I am not an expert in knots and will learn more than I know now. Asking for ideas from people who have presented before. Also would like for members to show me what knots they are using so I can pass them on.

I am thinking about having fly tying vises with hooks to practice on as well as large cords (1/4 inch) to visually see knots. I have the "Little Redbook of Knots" and a few others.

General Discussion / Port Mansfield 5-4 & 5-6, 2012

First trip to Port Mansfield. Was a bait casting trip with Captn Trisha from Skinny Water Adventures. I asked her about places to sight cast for redfish. I want to go back. We fished Friday and Saturday. I got two 24" trout on topwater on Friday and a 26" on Saturday. Got some reds on top also. She is a grinder. We waded only both days. Of course she outfished us.


Hey Adam, did you look at the lease papers? Call me
