Rain rain go away.....

Five inches of rain in a day has reeked havok on the local rivers and fishing is worthless.
On a good note I should have a bunch of new streamers to post tomorrow night.

My gear

Currently I use a Temple Forks TCRX rod and a Greys GRXi+ as my main rod. My secondary is an Airflo Bluetooth Saltwater and a Greys GRXi. I liked the look of the large arbor reels and the fact that the cassettes will interchange among both rod set-ups.

False Albicore

I promised Randy I would post something nice about him since I had his knitting video up. Here is a nice False he caught.

Snook in Florida

Spent a week in Florida in July hitting the beaches for snook. I will post pictures later, but this video of my friend Randy trying to knit a sweater with his set-up just makes me laugh inside.

Fishing fluff

Not much new to report so I thought I would post a few of my favorite patterns.

Pike Flys

I have been pike fishing for many years, primarily because of my love of large streamers and big rods. I have 3 weights and boxes of size 18 Adams, but they do little for me anymore. I want to hear the splash of the fly and feel the weight of the line as it loads. The fish I chase can live off our local trout, maybe two or three at a time. To know that small mammals swim across the water fearing these preditors, as we do "Jaws" is a thing of passion. Lately I have been throwing some new large streamers I tied this year to varying success. The rivers and streams have been flooded and dirty most all of the year so far and little has come from them.
