  1. Pond Fly Fishing - Tough Round #maxcatch Another round of pond fishing at the local pond. Had a Bass take a Foam Grasshopper, then spent most of the time working Bluegill on their nest. Had a few missed strikes while trying a number of fishing flies. Did have several little Bass show interest as well as little Sunfish readily taking a Foam Grasshopper by the Waterfall. That said, cannot catch them all... that's fishing!
  2. Pond Fly Fishing... Fished Bethany Lakes Friday morning with then MaxCatch Discount Switch Rod and the Foam Grasshopper. Caught a Bass and lost a Bass. Returned in the evening and caught Bluegill and a Bass using a Damsel Fly as well as a Foam Grasshopper! Opted for the Tenkara Rod for the evening fishing round. Fun Stuff!
  3. Sure are! There are some big ones lurking too... just don't want to strike.
  4. More Duck Creek Fly Fishing for Sunfish #maxcatch Another stop on the commute this morning. Back to Duck Creek with the Foam Grasshopper Beavertail variant. Saw several Bass but no takers. Luckily, the Sunfish were active! One was a nice sized one that put a bend in the Discount Switch Rod!
  5. Bass Fly Fishing with the Discount Switch Rod #foamgrasshopper Stopped at Crowley Park in Richardson on the commute. Fished the 2wt Discount Switch Rod and a Foam Grasshopper to catch a Bass or two! Lotta fun... Bass tended to strike when the hopper was sitting still. Slow stop and go was the key! Fun stuff!
  6. Bass Fly Fishing with the Discount Switch Rod #foamgrasshopper Fished the 2wt Discount Switch Rod and a Foam Grasshopper to catch a Bass or two! Lotta fun... Bass tended to strike when the hopper was sitting still. Slow stop and go was the key! Fun stuff!
  7. Tough round this go... a little Bass and a Bluegill after spending most of the time trying to get Bass protecting their bed to strike. Had one strike but missed it; else, the Bass were definitely wary!
  8. Lots of fun... stopped again on the way to work this morning. Fished further downstream; not as big as the others but still lots of fun! More Quick Trips Fly Fishing for Sunfish #duckcreek Lotta fun catching these Sunfish on the MaxCatch Fly Rod and Orvis Hydros Reel. 2wt makes for a fun fight of these feisty fish! Tried the size 8 Foam Grasshopper and caught several. Upsized to the size 4 and had some strike but only managed one on the larger pattern. Great way to start a TGIF and roll into the Memorial Day Weekend!
  9. Will keep in mind next trip... went back again this morning. Don't think I held them up too long. Fish were smaller than yesterday but did downsize to a size 8. Still lots of fun!
  10. Another quick trip to Duck Creek before starting the day job. Sunfish were biting on a size 8 foam grasshopper. Caught several in short order, then the bite stopped unexpectedly. No worries... good reason to stop and head to work!
  11. ...size 4 Foam Grasshopper and caught a Bass, then was a little slow while I worked others spots. Ended with some nice sized Sunfish. Water was clear, polarized glasses made a difference... could see the fish reacting to the fly and their strikes! Fun stuff!
  12. Fly Fishing Duck Creek #maxcatch #orvis #riotroutmax Quick trip or more like a quick stop on the day job commute... able to wet a line at Duck Creek Park to do a little fly fishing with the Maxcatch Discount Switch Rod. Started with a Rubber Legged Near Deere but no takers. Switched to size 4 Foam Grasshopper and caught a Bass, then was a little slow while I worked others spots. Ended with some nice sized Sunfish. Water was clear, polarized glasses made a difference... could see the fish reacting to the fly and their strikes! Fun stuff!
  13. It is fun... always love your replies! Can't wait to post another Tenkara video... I keep it in the pickup and keep it ready for ponds while on the commute. Did get more fishing in. But, it was jug line fishing, so no video to post this round. LOL!
  14. Tenkara Fishing a Pond with Foam Grasshoppers! #tenkarafishing #flyfishing.... Finally got a much needed haircut after two months! Feel much better now, what to do to celebrate... GO FISHING. Since the Tenkara Iwana Rod from Tenkara USA is at the ready in the little pickup truck, hit the closest pond from the barber... Kroger Park. Water was clear and the Bass and Bluegill were there. Caught a few, missed a few, had a great time! Fished a "beat up Foam Grasshopper" where the tail was missing, the Beavertail Variant, and then another variant that uses a different foam cutter... cannot recall the name - stonefly, damsel fly... regardless, fish were biting!
  15. Kayak Fly Fishing OPST Commando Head or Weight Forward Fly Line? #flyfishing.... Wind was minimal on Mother's Day, finally able to try out the OPST Commando Head sitting in a kayak placed in a grassy area. Wanted to play around with the one-handed spey fly line and compare it with the weight forward fly line... fun time, do like the OPST Commando Head because it makes a for ease of casting when the back cast is limited. Main item is to use a coated running line instead of mono running line, tangle less and unravels while still able to shoot line when needed. All for now, and Good Luck and Good Fishing!
