Get signed up soon.

Those that are not signed up by Sunday, 2013-04-14, will not get a free box of Mike's killer flies.

On a side note, an accurate count will help us determine how much food to cook.


Tying Chat / Mardi Gras Minnow

I started tying this fly as an imitation of Casey Smart's minnow.  Casey Smart's minnow

As you can see, my results didn't come out anywhere near as elegant as Casey.  But for some reason the fish seemed to like my disaster well enough.

Here is how I do it:

Tye in the Mardi Gras Beads, about 1/2 way up the hook shank.

Tie in the First layer of fur at the rear.

Tie in some Shiney stuff on top of the first layer of craft fur

Tie in a Second layer of craft fur over shiney stuff

Make a dubbing loop for craft fur

Palmer the dubbing loop all the way up to the eye of the hook.

Tie off , cut and glue.  I use CA, but others use Fabric Fusion.

Use a Metalic marker to get a layered look.

Finished, take it fishing

Midshank wire wrap with fingernail polish overlay.

Tie a few with specific number of wraps, and see what works best for what you need.  The difficult part is keeping records, so what I do is associate thread color with number of wraps.

Good luck.

LMB were on the bed, but the wind was high, making casting a lazer minnow with a 5wt a true challenge.

I landed 4, but gave up after only a few hours.

What happened to the clubs annual trip to Nail Creek?

Some criminals starting tageting anglers parked in the upper parking lot, smashing their windows out and grabibing whatever they could.  Sometimes there was nothing to steal, so they continued to smash more windows.

No arrests have been made, that I know of.

38th Anual Fishing Show Link

I won't be there.  I'm working on a kitchen pass for Saturday. 

If I can kill the fire ants before Saturday, I'll be at D7Ls.


TFF has been invited to participate in the expanding of young minds at one of our local high schools.

Day 1 (2013-03-01)- Introduction to fly-fishing
Day 2 (2013-04-12)- Fly casting
Day 3 (2013-04-26)- Fly Tying
Day 1 sent well, with Puck talking to 2 seperate morning classes for a total of almost 50 students.

We will need som volunteers for days 2 and 3. 

Jim H. has volunteered to help with day 2 so far, but we'll need more.  A CCI would be appreciated.

Day 3 is wide open.

Updates are in the works.

I was in Jack's boat with Jerry, and we covered over 30 miles of water, with no fish seen.

The water was off-color, so even if we did see fish, they wouldn't have seen our fly.

The bait guys we ran across caught their limit on dead shrimp, meaning that the fish were there, and hungry, but our sport required both us, and the fish to be able to see.

I marked a few of Jerry's favorite spot on my GPS, and plan to go back to them later.

It was good to be out on the water.  Fish would have been a bonus.  I'll post some pictures later in teh week.
