Travel a Back Road and Recharge

It's been a very busy week and we're heading in to another busy weekend, but try to find the time to travel a back road and recharge. Maybe find a new stream to catch some bluegill or trout on the ultralight rods. Thats my plan, anyway. Hope to see you out there👍

Fishing for White Bass

Finally got the photos off my old iphone from fishing for white bass last week. I really wish they had turned out better! This is my friend, and local flyfishing legend, Steve Hudson with the first white bass of the evening. Its tough to see in the photo, but he commandeered my Souplefly Fly Patch hat!! I really need to get another, very handy piece of kit!!

What a fantastic caster!

The universe seems to be against me fly fishing the salt. We didn't get out as early as hoped, there was a bait fisherman at the end of the dock where I was planning to go and once I started casting to the mouth of the canal the thunderstorms started moving in. Oh well, better luck next time. At least I got to cast my sweet, new Walter's Fly Rods Cinder Creek. What a fantastic caster! Almost makes me look like I know what I'm doing!!

Muddy K-5 Bombers

I guess I can't call my Korkers' K-5 Bombers "new" anymore!! Going from wading in an old, worn out pair of workboots to these is a world of difference! I am way more confident in the water now!!!

Another well spent lunch break!

Another well spent lunch break! I think this is the largest 'gill I've caught in the office pond so far.

Slow bite on the office pond tonight, but I managed to fool this beautiful guy with a size 18 black ant.

Tying More Rolexes...

Finally got the opportunity to get out and fish with Steve Hudson tonight and caught my first White Bass!! So, naturally, I needed to come home and tie some more Rolexes so we can go again!

Proof....



Proof that there are, in fact, fish in the office pond and they will even bite a fly! Caught this beautiful bluegill on a small, black wooly bugger. I could see bass in the shallows, but they weren't interested in the bugger. There's also a small deer herd in the woods behind the building, but they're much more difficult to catch on rod and reel.

Walters Flyrods Cinder Creek

I've really been itching to make some casts with my new Walters Flyrods Cinder Creek. And, while I don't think I'll really need a 9' 8-weight rod for the office pond, it sure was fun ripping that Clouser Minnow out to the middle! I'm really looking forward to getting this rod salty!!

Office Pond

The company I work for just moved into a new facility and there just happens to be a large pond out front. I guess I know where I'll be spending my lunch breaks this spring!!
