Still sidetracked by the day job but luckily Saturday’s are open for now for some fishing. This round more jug line fishing at Lake Lavon. Was there on the Fourth of July and only caught one on rod and reel while kayak fishing. Had video but file was corrupted while transferring to the computer.

No worries… this round, able to get the video to transfer and finished editing it! Also, still working on the fishing and side trips last month to the Texas Coast and Hill Country; added a snippet to the end of this video. Do check back periodically; hope to get it posted sooner than later!

Jug Line Fishing Again...Plus!

One to keep handy for early morning and late evening for Bluegill! Here is the fishing fly that we based the Foam Grasshopper on... the Betts Bream Getter. But, this one comes from a kit we picked up from Feather Craft called the Foam Spider Fly Tying Kit made by Wapsi. Looks just like the Bream Getter! Foam Spider aka Bream Getter.

Having fun pond hopping local ponds and getting lots of practice casting the OPST Commando Head that we like using on our 5wt Fly Rod. Able to demo different casts that we use while in the Field. Not sure if they are the traditional fly casts techniques… mainly go with variations of casts until we find one that works for us. Pond Hopping with the OPST Commando Head...

Finally completed the new version of iFishNews... this one collates various fishing related information into one page for ease of access. Can add/remove items as the Seasons changes and expand to other areas of fishing as well as not just North Texas.  Still have more work to do, but this is a good starting point... do check it out iFishNews.com.
PS: The old monthly editions are archived and still available, too!

Another fun time fishing local ponds with the 9'-5wt flyrod and OPST Commando Head. This round called for more Over The Shoulder Casting which was not an issue with the shooting head. Here is a demo of how we cast over the shoulder... Over The Shoulder Cast.

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!
