37.5 inches about 20 pounds.

First right answer gets a free fly.

So I got a new license plate for my mini cooper. "RANGER3". The first email I get with the correct meaning gets my latest fish skin headed fly in the mail.

Weekend fishing

Spent some time on my local haunt this weekend. Got into a few bass and pike. The biggest point of the trip was to try some new heads. The fish skin heads run an inch or two under the surface.

The foam heads run right on the surface and have a side to side motion like a jerk bait. I am very impressed with both and will be adding them to the standard ties in the future.

Striper fishing in Maine in July 21-26

So I just booked a week in July to head over to Maine and do some Striper fishing with Flyfishjeff. I cannot wait. This is something I have wanted to do for years but never gotten around to it.

Update on the headed fly

So, i tied these flies more as an experiment on looking cool than anything else.They fish awesome. The bullet shaped head makes these track great in the water and has just enough neutral buoyancy to make them sink very slowly. I will continue to make some in order to speed up the process. They do add about 15 minutes to a build mostly because I cannot find a good way to glue the two sides of the head together. I have some green ones on the vise as we speak.

Last Saturdays fishing

This is where the dam at Dehli used to be before breaking last year.

Andys first fly rod smallie.

First pike of the day.

Only rock bass of the day.

This is a small patch of moss in full spore bloom. Is actually only about a inch high. The rocks were covered with these and actually pretty cool to see.
