General Discussion / Fly Fishing in a Pravate Pond
« on: May 19, 2014, 08:48:12 AM »
 :)  I was invited out to a private pond to fly fish for bass and perch..little did I realized they're were catfish in this pond too... I started out with a 5wt fly rod and after the third break off. I went and got my 8wt. rod with a 15lbs test tippet..  Tied on another whoolley bugger an as soon as the lure sunk about a foot the line rips off again,but this time he didn't get away...Full meter was pegged...

Pink Catcher By Don Hanselman
Hook - #2 Gamakatsu
Eye- Chain EYE
Thread-  I use 100% clear on all flies to prevent of collection thread colors.
Feather- Hot Pink Saddle Hackle around eye..

Opional to use lead thread for weight..and also for body filler I use parachute line out side casing...works great for hold a rattler..

Outing Chat / Bull Reds, Jack Carvelle, on a Fly??
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:24:11 AM »
 :)  OK> for fly fishing for the bull reds and big jackcarvelle at the Jetties... I have a 10wt rod and a big reel..I know how to catch these Bull Reds on conventional..but I would like to learn how to catch them on fly rod , twenty pound plus reds and Jacks.  I have caught them in 5 to 15 of water along jetties...So, what do I use for tippet an what flies to use... I will be happy to take any of you pros with me and show you were these big reds  are if you show me how to catch them...with a fly... These bull red are like a bull, when they run , they will give you a workout... so will the Jacks...   One of things on my bucket list...!!

 :) The black popper did the trick early-7am - 9am,,,Present the popper two feet from moss on the banks ,,let set for a second or two an look for the V wave coming from the bank and then hang on. Known stop until around 9am when the front moving in with stronger winds..

Mike, I put my card on you door bell sign when I left,  one fish was not 22" inches, more like 18", here is the  photos of Popper I used  to catch these from the northeast side of Duck Pond channel..to the mouth of it.. next to pier.  I really have improved my casting thanks to You Tube videos.  I will still take lesson on meeting nights. Thanks for a great time...GTN

My first flounder on my own fly....Pinks Shimp !!Whoooie Whooie....That I tied todays ago... So far all the flies I've made, works..! (Not bragging) in freshwater and saltwater.  It's a good confidence builder....in catching fish with your own!!... Soooooo! much fun!   Justin and I fished Christmas Bay Saturday it was a blow out.   Waders fishing --nothing caught,,, we drift almost an hour an caught nothing --winds were 15 to 20 not good on a day after a front in all my fishing experances. Caught this flounder in Chocolate Bayue Sunday wading off a windy points with Joe and Bran,,,Mike Q have to do a trounament here in the fall, because it's windy friendly, if coming from North or South..always places to fish out of wind..Go up the bayou or back around the pond on northeast side. A lot of shell and some wading, but mostly boggie.. Ready for the next one!! "GET THE NET IV"..
