Hopedale is not on some maps. We stayed at Delacroix. The area is south of Lake Borgne which is southeast of New Orleans.

The big red was 25 lbs and 38 inches. Caught on 8 wt (TFO prof series) using the guides reel and 9 wt line. I will post a pick of the fly later that was his and he gave it to me.

The guide service is through Greg Dini. http://www.flywaterexpeditions.com/ We fished Friday with Lucas and I did not catch a fish with him. Fished Saturday with Miles LaRose and he put us on fish.

I read on TexasKayayfisherman that someone had a good trip catching crappie and white bass on Cypress Creek.

Just a thought.

Puck,
I found some white plastic bead chain at Hobby Lobby in the bridal section. I suspose you could use a black sharpie to make them black. Did not look for black there.

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