Fly fishing fun
« on: October 15, 2012, 10:20:39 PM »
Had a few hrs to kill waiting for a landowner to get home so had a fish in a dam and camp up with 2 Leo's 1 bass and 2 yella's,
Not huge but should have been 4 yella's but apparrently when they hit a fly they snap 8lb tippet like cotton.

Best fun i have had in ages

That's very cool mate  :youbeauty

Intersting looking fly there, guess it's a sinker with the dumbell eyes. How'd you fish it?

My favorite fly I was counting to 4 then short jabs with the odd longer strip, they hit pretty hard and even had a hit on that popper you showed me :youbeauty

That fly is just something i made with small dumbell eyes for a more in their face approach and always outfishes any flys i have in my box so usually carry 5 or 6

Has it been ages since we took you cod fishing?

Only a month and a half until the closed season lifts mate.

Cheers,
Dave.

Gotta love unexpected moments Steve, good stuff.  A mate fishes those sparse flies for Bass too with good success. Do you tie on a X-long streamer hook?

Norm (STILL haven't caught a Yella on fly)

Norm i tie on a mustad size 6 R72 Long nymph hook to get the pointy end of the stick further back in the body of the fly
I have convinced myself it hooks a few more shorter strikes but its quite often down their gob

Cheers
Steve
