  1. Thanks guys it was a hoot catching these. I am going back tonight with casting gear as the tide will be too high and swift to wade. (there's no room to cast from the shore) Bill
  2. Hey, my hand tied Blue Back Herring got me a couple of nice ones. 28" 9.5 pounds and 25" 7 pounds. Bill
  3. Damian, They are beautiful. I know you must be so proud. Ihave two girls myself. (not twins) I was told once that if you have a boy you only have to worry about one boy, if you have a girl you have to worry about ALL the boys. Keep that 20 guage handy, Bill
  4. Well I took my 3 year old daughter fishing today and she nabbed her first bass. It was not on a fly rod but a Zebco Tigger. (you know Tigger from Winnie the Pooh) She saw the cork go under and started to reel. It was a bit much for her so I grabbed the line and helped pull him in while she continued to reel. Dad did OK too with this 3 pounder. Bill
  5. Yeah that has been my experience as well. It also helps to strip enough slack out of the line to straighten the tippet. This causes maximum spinnage. (not to be confused with the green salad ingredient) Well actually today is my day off so I have my 10' Jon in the truck and I am off to Harrison Lake to fish the noon day-twilight part of the day. It is overcast today so I am hoping the lunkers will be adventurous. Bye Bill
  6. Well I keep my honey holes a secret. The techniques won't help you if you can't find my secret spots. Bill
  7. That is an awesome fly. Where do you find feathers like that? Most feathers are so expensive. Sort of makes me want to invest in my own Aviary. Bill
  8. Nobody else was, but I guarantee you that everyone else soon will. That's just too awesome... any suggestion on tippet size and length to make it work best? You know on my small fly rod that I use for gills I don't even have a traditional tippet. I just tie on a 7 foot length of 8 pound mono. Stren Lo Vis Clear. Bill
  9. Balsa poppers. I use the ones you buy already tied because its cheaper in the long run. Bill
  10. Hey I was rippin' it up with the old fly rod yesterday evening. I caught a few nice bass and piles of big bream. I was using a technique I discovered quite by accident a few years ago. I was throwing a small popper with rubber legs. What I did before fishing the fly was to trim the legs on one side of the fly down by a third. When hauling line the inequality in the length of the legs causes the fly to spin in the air thus winding up the tippet. Once the fly lands in the water it just sits there and rolls over and over. It really looks lifelike and the fish can't stand it. Using this method I more than double my catch. Just wondering if anyone else does this? Bill

  12. Howie, That is an awesome Slab. Bill
  13. Jeff, I caught these in a pond in my neighborhood in Mechanicsville VA just off of Meadowbridge Rd. Bill
  14. She was a lot of fun to catch. I caught 6 yesterday and one was 14 1/2 inches long. The one in the picture is 12 1/2. My phone died before I caught the bigger one. But that's okay, I know where they live now so I'll be back. Bill
  15. A new addition to the fly pattern database has been submitted by Pastor Bill: Chickahominy Mosquito (click link for more info)
