Time to wet a line

Looking forward to get out and do some fly fishing. It puts me at peace like nothing else does. Fish on!

Nice one!
Thats one thing that Ive never been able to do, catch fish.
Maybe its because Ive just never been into it enough, to learn the tricks of the sport, and how to get them to bite



I thought of something a little different when I saw the title of this thread......
Here is my idea of wetting a line...


07' Graystone Unlimited Rubicon
Rubicon Express 4.5" Long Arm kit
35" BFG mud's and 17" Pro Comp wheels
Warn 9.5ti winch
Shrockworks stubby front bumper
Mopar rear bumper/tire carrier
Poly Performance rocker guards
Skid Row engine skid
and a whole lot more over priced stuff

Love to fly fish and try to go after everything possible with a fly. Stripers are a blast along with Blues. For freshwater I like hitting Large mouth in my backyard...

Launched the boat this year 1 week after the ice melted... temp of the water was already 49 degrees and it's now around 59 to 62 depending on sun. So far I've caught one 4 lb bass and I'm hearing the other side of the lake 4 10 lb large outh have been caught.

You guys with the nearby cold water fishing (with big fish) make me a little envious untill I realize...... in 4 hours I could be in the mountians trout fishing (little eastern streams) or offshore trolling for marlin. Of course in the time it takes to write this I could be out the back door and hooked into a largemouth in my pond.

That reminds me for those of you who do flyfish warmwater what would you recomend as the best fly for the money (I don't tie so I will have to purchase) for small largemouth? Mostly on the pond the best action is subsurface with plastic worms topping out however spinnerbaits come a close second. Of course I think they would hit anything but the topwater baits seem not to work as well on the pond as they do for me elsewhere. I have a 6wt flyrod I am fairly competent with and a 9wt I am trying to become better with. I have caught bream mostly but I have caught a few bass, a couple catfish (in a stocked pond), and several smallish trout in the mountians (one 22" fish but mostly small 12" ones). I figure since it is getting too easy to catch bass in the pond I would try the flyrod a bit more. I am rusty because it has been a year or so but I want to get back into shape to take a trip to the mountians (body as well as casting shape)

All who wander are Jeep drivers.

try a wooley bugger in various colors and sizes, the also make some flies out of cork, the can be fished like a top water plug, bass are fun on a fly rod we used to go out after work to some of the ponds around here and slay them

Well Dragon Fly patterns work and so do the many dry fly patterns. I've caught some on Bumble bee patterns, mouse and ant patterns. A very few on plug/popper patterns. The surface usually has the pain in the butt crappie's swarming.

I've used a few saltwater patterns and streamers. I don't have all the names in front of me and nymphs don't typically work.

This is all for bass of course.

It really has allot to do with the tippet material and the action you give the fly. Very thin tippet and stripping the line slowly works best. slowly pull in by hand then recast. Pond/Lake fishing has allot to do with smooth landings as the surface is not running like a stream and often is much like glass.

I will pick up a few Wooly Buggers. I have had some luck on Muddler Minnows in other ponds but the bream there pick the bigger ones apart so I need to get a few more. The best part about this is no crappies and few bream so whatever I use will most likely pick up a bass. I still can go to the neighbors and catch bream as he has an abundance of them. If I ever find a 3wt rod I can afford I will pick it up just to dry fly that pond.

This exactly it! You must have done it before

Don't forget though, there is a skill to it! It takes lots of practice to not forget you have a line in the water!!

Since my first Bachelor's degree was in Cultural Anthropology, I have always had a facination with food and culture; I am a seafood nut, and some of these fotos are taken by me or by family and friends...
