I'm Gonna Need A Benadryl - Mini TR

Post by Carolina_Fly » Fri Apr 08, 2011 6:43 pm

[report]

Wanted to test out a new/old fly design.
Image

Spring is here ... and so is the pollen.
Image

But the fish didn't seem to care.
Image

Moved to clearer water.

Image

Image

Image

Image

A quick photo and they were off.
Image

Some fish didn't want their picture taken.
Image

Stopped to smell the flowers.
Image

And make some new friends.
Image

Image

All the best,

Those are some ugly-ass trout...but i'm guessing they'll do in a pinch. Send a little spring this way--will yah? :cool

Yes, very close to you. Mother Goose wasn't very happy when I got close. Starting hissing and that was my signal to leave ... quickly.

Well done.
Buy better hooks and bourbon.

Dammit.


The fish I were playing with today would've ate the shit out of that bug.

Hindsight's 20/20.

Thanks for the report, I'll have to tie a few of those.
