Made a stop on the way home from work Monday. Rain was in the forecast but was able to catch a Bass and Bluegill or two or more before the rain arrived. Use the TFO 6wt Fly Rod; Echo Ion 6/7/ Wt Reel, and OPST Commando to cast Damsel Flies, a variant of one, and Tube Fly Poppers.  The Damsel Fly Variant did well catching them... even had fun catch a nice Bluegill that bent the rod well!

Went kayak fishing yesterday on the local lake. Caught five Catfish using Shad on Juglines. Filleted them and cooked them blackened fish style. Tasty meal but still got a ways to go before the video is done; will get it posted soon as we can.... For now, did a quick trip with the Telescoping Micro Fly Rod trying to catch a small fish on a size 32 fly. Bluegill took it, switched to a size 18 Griffiths Gnat and caught a Sunfish. Fun times, especially with a rod that fits conveniently in a pocket. Do stay tuned for more on yesterday's kayak fishing video!

Alrighty, getting questions about the micro fly rods we use as well as another Near Deere Give Away! This round we show four Micro Fly Rods. And then, we end with a Near Deere Give Away. This give away is for three Near Deere - Olive, White, and Pink! Blog Post

One to keep in mind for a kayak fishing backup rod... Zebco Slingshot Spinning Combo... It FLOATS! Lost a couple of rods while kayak fishing several seasons ago. Replaced them with the economical Zebco combo. Was tethering them to the kayak, then forgot one trip... went overboard, and low and behold... it floated handle up!

On a whim bought an EmmRod in their Kayak King Spinning Rod model to use for kayak fishing. Rigged up an old spinning reel that we managed to get working again... 30+ year old reel, and then mounted it on the EmmRod. Took it to a local pond and free-lined bread "mashed" around a circle hook. After about 15" caught a nice Catfish! Not bad for the first cast, first fish on the little rod. Cannot wait to try it kayak fishing!

Fishing with the EmmRod... First Cast, First Fish!

Liked the EmmRod Kayak King for fishing the local ponds for Catfish. Hope to try it out kayak fishing sooner than later. Decided to order their fly rod model.

It came in today! Opened the box and checked it out. Looks promising. Was trying to decide on mounting the 2/3 Wt Echo Ion Fly Reel with a Rio Trout Max shooting head or the 4/5 Wt Echo Ion Fly Reel with the OPST Commando Head and Lazerline running line.

Still deciding but hope to fish it this weekend, too! More to come!

Setup the surf casting rod and made the run to Brockdale Park (Lavon). Thought the park was closed, planned to walk down from the gate. Arrived and found out it was open. Drove down to the parking area. Lake level is up. Able to get some great surf casting practice in. No fish but did have a few boats come close to the point where we were casting. Was casting well past the wakes they left. Next round... hopefully Denison Dam?

Fished Lavon last Friday and struck out, then Denison Dam last Saturday and struck out, too! Went to Texoma last Sunday, and struck out again!

No chance to fish until this Saturday... finally broke the streak by fishing Stoney Hollow Park Pond using the TFO 6wt Fly Rod and Echo Iion 6/7wt reel. OPST Commando Head did well casting into the wind!

Managed a Bass, a fingerling Bass, and little Bluegill as well as a nice sized Bluegill. Used a Tube Fly Popper to take the Bass, a Foam Damsel Variant for the fingering Bass, and then a Red Marabou Damsel Fly and a Guadalupana for the Bluegill!

Lots of fun! Feel much better having broken the streak!

How We Organized Our Fishing Rods... DIY Fishing Rod Racks #diy #fishing #rodracks

One rod rack used paracord and two screws to mount fly rod tubes to the wall of our home office / fishing room.

Another rod rack we used was made of wood and mounted to the wall. It costs about $30 to mount 40 fishing rods. Much cheaper than the commercially made ones!

Lastly, we used a PVC Floor Rod Rack to store six fishing rods that we would be using in the near term - surf casting rods, kayak fishing rods, and a couple of EmmRods.

Do check out the overview video and links to videos for more details on how we made each type of rod rack!
