Are these what you used? http://amzn.to/1sRQcva

I have a dozen on these that I bought at a fly shop on the cheap in a bargain bin.

Thanks!

Thanks dzumwalt!

For the fly used, I tie them myself based on this article - Simple Foam Grasshopper.

That's awesome, I love making my own flies and that looks pretty straight forward.

Thank you for sharing!

No problem, they are a simple pattern. Even better is when they get a waterlogged after getting beaten up my fish, they sink slowly just under the surface. You will get a number of strikes as it sinks slowly as well as on the retrieve, it tends to stay just under the surface getting more strikes. Good luck!

Fun time this evening catching Bluegill, Sunfish, and Bass on the Micro Fly Rod. Started with a Foam Grasshopper but then switched to a Tenkara Fly. No Bruisers save for a run on some nice size Bluegill that were making a nice bend in the little fly rod. Sure glad to have made use of that broken 8-Wt to make this rod. Fun stuff! Yesterday's Video.

Tenkara fly is another simple but effective pattern; works well with the Micro Fly Rod, too!

Caught a couple of fish this evening on a quick trip to a local pond! Went with the Two Piece Micro Fly Rod and a PMC Emerger Variant to catch a Sunfish and some other fish that we are not sure about... still counts! Post.

Fun with the micro fly rod we made years back. This one was the telescoping one that collapses to a length that fits in the backpack that your's truly uses for work. Good for those times when "fishy" waters are nearby while out during the work week! Video Post.

While on the way home from the day job, had the fishing bug strike. Luckily we keep a Micro Fly Rod in our backpack at the ready for these instances.Video shows the Micro Fly Rod variant that we made that collapses and has larger rod guides than the original ones that came from the manufacturer. Micro Fly Rod casts 30' without an issue; only need to adjust the timing of the forward and backcast and we tend to use a sidecast more often than not.
Quick Trip with the Micro Fly Rod!
