    Thank you, they were caught out of Hooper Creek here in the Sierra National Forest. I got nine that day, my buddy got six.

    Some pretty goldens from this past season. Plenty more where those came from! Thank You and Tight Lines, Carson LeBoeuf

  7. Wow, I haven't been or posted here in a while but I'm so glad to see that the great fish and flies are still flowing, as well as some new names around here. Well, here's some flies, fresh from the vice; the snow is keeping me from using them unfortunately. Simple deer-head streamer w/ stinger hook Trio of messy Flash Buggers, nice and weighted for those big browns Simple stone nymph One of my go-to's for the backcountry, a modified Goddard Awesome little emerger, I tie a ton of these One of my favorite nymphs: goose biot tail and shellcase, three are used for the shellcase and extend over the whole body, secured by pearlescent tinsel. (Looks pretty messy here, but it's a great fly.) Thank You and Tight Lines! Carson LeBoeuf P.S. I'm probably going to have some formatting issues in posting this- I forgot my routine for posting- so I apologize in advance.

    Hiking Boots

    Hello everybody, I've been horribly busy as of late and have been unable to frequent this site at all. But I need your assistance: I'm looking for a good pair of hiking boots; the ones I've purchased annually for the past few years or so never last long enough. Any recommendations would be appreciated; I don't care about price just as long as they are worth it. Thank you and tight lines, Carson LeBoeuf
  10. Philly, Is that a green sunfish in the third picture?
  11. Getting ready for the upcoming bluegill spawning season... And the last picture is the aftermath of my efforts.
  12. This is for you rod building guys: what varnish/lacquer do you use on the rod blank itself? Thank You and Tight Lines, Carson LeBoeuf
  13. Got a break from commercial stuff finally, and here's the result.
  14. I was given a P.O.S. Eagle Claw 3-piece graphite rod by a friend recently, who parted with it because it was cracked in the handle section and thought I could use it for rod repairs; but seeing it's a poor rod and I don't do too many fly rod repairs, I decided to give it a new chance by shrinking it down to 5'4" and complimenting it with a new handle. I used Manzanita, a local hardwood that has a beautiful rose color, for the ergonomic handle and fighting butt; and used the original guides, wrapping them with black thread and red wire for looks. Christened the Gill Getter, it proved to be a fun rod on the water, despite the lack of a reel (I controlled the line with my hand), but unfortunately has yet to catch it's namesake. Enjoy! Thank You and Tight Lines, Carson LeBoeuf
  15. Hello, Recently I have been offered the opportunity to write an article for the California Fly Fisher magazine; but, alas, I've encountered a problem: I know not what to write about. I do believe myself to contain some literary skill upon my premises, but I am barren of any familiarity with literature of a sporting disposition. So this is what I implore of you: What Fly-Fishing related articles do you enjoy most? Whether it be philosophical insight, "Pap n' me went fishin' " narratives, or, well, anything, I would dearly appreciate it. Thank You and Tight Lines, Carson LeBoeuf
