  1. Nice green fish on the 3wt! I have a 2wt that I go to everytime I can get near some fresh water. It is enjoyable to get ANY size fish on ultralight gear. Rock on!
  2. I am with 2b on tis one. I got my Danvise about 6 months ago. I just added the arm extension for 20 bucks. It really makes for a better vise. I tie a lot of bigger saltwater stuff so it makes things easier. Great deal for under a hundred bucks in my book!
  3. I read the other post about grab bag supplies and got one from Orvis with my last order. I got a lot of neat stuff and some wierd stuff too. There were some feahters and thread and chennile and some tiny pipe cleaner looking things. I decided to try a hopper fly. Hope the Panfish think it looks real enough!
  4. Funny you should ask. I was just looking at an attachment for my vise to do that. I have seen some pretty neat tube flies recently and think that is going to be my next step. By the way the blue one on top was very good to me I scored 3 nice slot size trout in the Indian River Lagoon and even went 2 for 3 on some small landlocked snook! I will be making a few more of these in the future.
  5. That is a heckova Drum! That Needlefish fly should do the job for the Macks. Take it offshore a bit and I am pretty sure it would slay some Dolphin and a Sailfish or two. Nice job!
  6. Alright here is my vote. Based on your needs a 13' Gheenoe would do. Car toppable,about 120 lbs. Unmatched stability. Can be paddled or goes like snot with a 9.9 on the back. Floats super skinny. I have the 15 foot version and love it. Used they are not too expensive either. Check out www.gheenoe.net www.customgheenoe.com
  7. I have not tried any night Bass fishing. I might have to after reading this. I get the dark color thing. I got a lot of tying supplies donated to me a while back and noticed several packages of the glow in the dark krystal flash in the mess of stuff I got. Are they a gimmick kind of thing or is this something that might work well at night for Bass?
  8. Thanks. It is cold here again so I hope it doesn't slow down too much. The last cold snap really shut things down. The water has been real clear and you could see the fish but they just layed around. I leaned the trick about using long shanked hooks awhile back. A friend wanted to go fishing for Spanish Macks and I got some wire leader, that was a pain. The extra shank lets me get most of the toothy ones at least near the Gheenoe! If you can fish near a bridge piling or concrete seawall the snook seem to liven up in thesee areas when it gets cool. The mass of the concrete keeps the surrounding water a bit warmer. Good luck!
  9. Nothing fancy here at all. These patterns and colors have been working real well for me in the Indian River Lagoon. They have worked on a lot of slot size speckled trout, Ladyfish, Jacks and some small bluefish. I love this time of year.
  10. The Bonefish Yums look like they would be great down here. I can see them working well in the surf. They look a lot like sand fleas, they should slay just about anything prowling the edge. What did you use for the body on them?
  11. There is not much they won't catch down here. Very nice!

    Before the cold snap and winds we have been having here along the Treasure Coast the trout bite was fantastic. Of course the season was closed here November and December, so the big ones were more than happy to take a fly you wanted a Red to take! The trout season opens here Saturday, so I probably won't have a nibble.The weather is getting warmer and the winds are dying down so I can get out again. The really cold temps make the trout head out to the deep channel of the ICW and hold so it can be a challenge to get anything interested in eating.
  13. I bet the Jacks will shred them! Good looking tubes!
  14. More great info for me there! Thanks. Yes I do believe I am using cotton...that will soon change. I see a trip to aquaint myself with the staff at JoAnn's!
  15. Hey John! I am here in PSL too! I went out Thursday in the Gheenoe in the IRL I saw no dead fish. I also did not catch anything. Saw a couple nice reds basking in nthe sun by the docks. None would commit to the cause though.
