Nice fly Joshie.
[EDIT] I also like that badass shirt!
Nice fly Joshie.
There’s no denying that kid Gabe.
I've caught many bass with that red and white spoon. The more beat up it got the better it was. I remember paddling up a small bayou with my dad in Louisiana, and him saying "the bass up here have never seen a hook".
Once you buy salmon fly hooks you are totally screwed.
Remember, you're safe here Gabriel. We know that one hundred salmon flies is not nearly enough salmon flies. Even if you never fish for salmon. We'll even tell your wife that if you need backup.durangopipe wrote: ↑Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:10 pmOnce you buy salmon fly hooks you are totally screwed.
Those hooks are so pretty.
Those flies are so cool.
They’re worse than potato chips.
You can’t tie just one hundred.
Really nice fly, Gabriel.

I think I've mentioned it somewhere on here before, but we used to flyfish for the carp in Buffalo Bayou in Houston but I never caught one, even with a Siene Bean on the hook.durangopipe wrote: ↑Wed Feb 13, 2019 7:22 pmGoldfish, shmoldfish.UncleBob wrote: ↑Wed Feb 13, 2019 3:55 pmA 20-pound ‘goldfish’ was caught in a Kentucky pond.

Koi, shmoi. (Koi are just carp putting on airs.)
That’s a golden carp. (Or so we call ‘em.)
They’re all cousins - Cyprinidae.
And yes, they fight like hell and run like bonefish.
Fantastic on the fly!
This is an old regular who wanted to give them a shot. A world famous trout river was right behind us, but he wanted a carp.
That was his first carp on a fly and he was jazzed!
I'm not. We bought a smaller house last fall and I don't have my own tying room any more. All my stuff is in the basement. It's a fine basement but it's also full of Mrs FredS's art crap and it's a huge mess. I've put in some nice LED lighting and started a shelving system but it'll be awhile before it's organized and I dislike working in an unorganized space. So, no fly tying 'till everything is put away in it's proper place.
