What part of town do you live?

There are quite a few "after work" opportunities in a lot of small neighborhood ponds.

Contact us when you get back into town.


This is coming up fast!

The trip is updated. 

Our livery service is locked in.

Kayaks are available to rent.

Prices for lodging are pretty much locked.

Now all we have to do is go fishing!

We currently (2014-05-13) only have 8 people on the sign-up sheet.

If you are having trouble signing up, get in touch with me.

Headcounts are important, as we have lodging and camping reserved.

General Discussion / Re: When to use a full sinking fly line?
« on: April 23, 2014, 03:42:59 AM »
1.  When fishing in deeper water (+10ft) in fresh waters
2.  Using a floating fly on a sinking line for LMB.  The line drags the fly top the bottom as you strip, and rises when you stop.
3.  In an area that has a tidal current.  The sinking line can get the fly to the fish.
4.  In the surf a floating line is a tangle waiting to happen.  An intermediate works, but the large fish seem to be deeper, so I like to use a sinking line.
5.  Brushpiles.  I'll throw a bendback on a sinking line into a brush pile and drag the fly over every tree limb.  Heavier tippet is required.
6.  Trolling.  In know, you don't troll with a fly rod, but when you are moving in a kayak from spot to spot, the sinking line drug behind seems to get more hook-ups.

John P. needs some help manning the booth.

He only has one confirmed assistant.  Thanks Tracy.

This is a seven hour event, with an opportunity to talk to a lot of folks.

A few more volunteers, tyers, talkers, etc, would be welcome.


Damon's Seven Lakes / Quick afternoon trip to D7Ls
« on: April 20, 2014, 08:34:43 AM »
Tracy M. and Mike Q. came over and we took Lilly to D7Ls for an afternoon of fishing.

Tracy was the winner of the drawing for the flies at the JSSFS, and Mike A. was there to give them to her.

The fishing was slow but the weather was absolutely perfect.

Here is a photo of Lilly helping Tracy land a nice bluegill.

Do we cancel? 

Or is there somebody else willing to lead?  I am committed to Nilo that weekend.

Last night after work.


The part of this story that nobody has mentioned yet is one of us loosing his balance in the front of the raft and going for a fully immersed swim. 

The fly rod never left his hand, and it never touched the water.  Yes there are 2 witnesses to that fact.

Lilly and I took a stroll around the ponds, me with a fly rod in my hands.

4 LMB, over 20 BG, and this fellow.  Poor picture because Lilly get trying to get a bite of him.
