Did some scouting at Bethany Lakes in Allen to see if the Bass were on their beds this past Saturday. Sure enough they were... Caught a couple, then later went back to the Mouse Tail and caught as well as lost some.  No worries... great time fishing Saturday!

Out an about Sunday, March 24... stopped at Bethany Lakes in Allen for a try at the bass on their beds with a fishing fly we made for trout but modified it some to go for bass.Change of plans though... bass did not want to strike anything on their beds. Instead, a hatch started and they started feeding on them... some little bug, so we went with a Griffith's Gnat and caught one, lost others, and then on to another pond later in the day. Struck out at the other pond, plus had to call it early do to a passing storm. Looked like it was going to miss us, so started grilling along and chilling with a Margarita or two! It did not... storm arrived and hailed on us too! Bummer... at least we got the grilling done! Plus caught a Bass!
Out and About Sunday, A Bass, A Strike Out, and then Hail!

Great question from a Reader of the Texas Fishing Forum. Posted on the forum a thread titled, "Went Fishing"... it's in the fly fishing section. Readers asks for a "friend" advice on purchasing echo ion fly reels from a local store in order to pay cash and avoid the significant other's complaints on buying more fishing gear... although one can never have enough fishing gear, we can relate at times to this "friend's" dilemma. To answer the mail, we posted our answer in this video... do check it out but we recuse ourselves in the event someone gets caught... Note: The information is provided for entertainment purposes only, and should not be taken as advice. Proceed at your own risk!

Stopped at Crowley Park Pond in Richardson, TX after work one day; after figuring out a pattern hooked but lost several Bass. Came back the next day and caught one after modifying Mop Fly to use a wider gap hook. Did lose several others, and then watched on fisherman catch a nice Bass using a $10 Kid's Fishing Combo!  Fun stuff!

Fished Kroger Park in Allen, TX Sunday, March 31, 2019. Struck out but did have a few strike fishing flies; just could not connect. Came back Tuesday, Arpil 2, 2019. Managed to catch a Bass on a Foam Grasshopper; shortly after lost the fishing fly to a snag.

After trying different patterns, settled on a Damsel Fly Variant that kinda looks like a Dragonfly.  Soon after caught two Bass and a Bluegill before calling it a trip as it got dark.

Fun times... liking the 6wt TFO Fly Rod with the Echo Ion Fly Reel and OPST Commando Head!

Finished the day job and kicked off the weekend with some pond fishing for bass on the fly. Not sure where we were going to fish; plan was to stop at a pond on the commute home. Several options on the way; ended up fishing Stoney Hollow Pond in Plano. Went with the trusty 6wt TFO Rod, Echo Ion Reel, and OPST Commando Head that we keep handy. Started out fishing the Damsel Fly Variant that worked at Kroger Park the other day. Later, switched to other flies before settling on a Tube Fly... a Tube Popper Fly that we tied several years back. Managed to catch two bass with it then lost the fly to a nice bass that broke off. PS: Due stay tuned; plan to post a video on how we make the Tube Popper Fly!

Was trying to catch fish at Kroger park, specifically, Bass using the Tube Popper Fly that worked well at Stoney Hollow Pond. Switched to a Damsel Fly Variant when it did not work, then switched back to the Tube Popper Fly. No luck there, so went with a Guadalupana... it worked. Do check out the video for tips and an idea on the retrieve we used when working the Guadalupana. Liked the fishing fly but did lose two Bass that threw the hook out after the initial hook set. Decided to tie Guadalupanas to replace the one lost this trip. Then, decided to give away two of them instead of the Near Deere Give Away for this month!

Finally got the video edited... it's the DIY Tube Popper Fly that we used the other day at Stoney Hollow Pond.  The version we used at the pond was painted yellow. These are painted white. Also, used the Mini-Balsa Wood Lathe we made several years ago along with a tube tying attachment on an old vise we keep just for making tube flies. Lathe is not required, can be shaped by had using hand tools and sand paper. Do check it out and give it a try fishing them on your local ponds this Season! DIY Tube Popper Fly

It's a variant of the original Tube Popper Fly we posted in an article several years ago...Tube Popper Fly

Here is a quick tie demo of how we tie the Guadalupana. Uses minimal material, and is simple to tie. Works on trout, bass, and bluegill. Do give it a try, and do keep guessing on our Fishing Fly Give Away of two Guadalupana fishing flies.

One tied with a Palmer Hackle. Other with a Dry Fly Hackle. Both on size 8 streamer hooks. See more and comment in our video posted on our YouTube Channel!

Fly fishing for bass at a local pond using the Guadalupana. Did well last round; same held true this round! Bass were in their beds or cruising the shallows. Also, caught several Bluegill. Fun times on a really nice day; even better to be fishing and catching them on the fly!

Quick trips to two ponds this past Easter Sunday - Sonic Pond and the Lower Pond at Bethany Lakes. Caught a couple of Bass using the Guadalupana and the PMOT - Purple Marabou Orange Thing. Did have a nice one on the line briefly but lost it. Overall, great time fishing on a real nice day!
