Re: Praying for a Sitting Duck TR

Hell 'yeah, fine report. That is a fine gurgled, going to be throwing 'em for the first time real soon and was wondering if it's important to match the line color to the foam? Don't want to be wasting my time out there and all... :cool Plow I tied my first batch of gurglers about a month ago. I did...

Living in a place where 12 feet above sea level is considered "high and dry", I could look at pictures like this all day long!

Thanks for sharing. Impressive trip! :cool

Re: Marsh Memoirs - Out on my own again - TR

A weighted black and red seaducer has been my go to fly for a while, particularly if the water is a little off color.

Re: Marsh Memoirs - Out on my own again - TR

I like every bit of that. Especially the red with four spots.

Oh yeah, gotta love the blue tail.

Now I have to go home and dig through my feather inventory to look for some black ones.
