  2. Fly Fishing Tips | Pointing and Your Thumb? As part of our Little Red Book of Fly Fishing series on our iFishNews Fishing Podcast, here is a video to expand on Tips 3 - Point Your Cast and Tip 10 - Watch Your Thumb. Point your cast suggests where you point your rod tip is also where your cast will go. Watch your thumb is a good rule of thumb... LOL, to keep you from bringing your rod to far back on the backcast. Both tips are solid... so since we are at a pond "practicing" decided to go ahead and go fishing, too!
  3. Posted the pattern in the SBS section... here is a link to the video Simple Fly Tying | Mickey Finn Variant.
  4. Simple Fly Tying | Mickey Finn Variant Here is a simple but effective variant of the Mickey Finn fishing fly. It makes for fast fly tying, made with minimal material, and can be upsized to target larger fish. In our case, we opted to tie it small to pair it with the Cabelas CGR 2wt Fiberglass Fly Rod when fishing for little fingerling Bass at our local pond! Recipe as follows: - Size 12 or 14 Streamer Hook - Pearl Tinsel - White Dacron Tying Thread - White Deer Hair - Green (Chartreuse) Deer Hair
  5. Happy Hump Day... A livestream session to detail the Tennis Ball Kayak Fishing Stringer that we use when fishing from a kayak. Originally used shower clips, and then a Viewer suggested Safety Pins... the big ones used for securing laundry bags. So far liking them better than the shower clips! Do check out the video... and Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Lower Mountain Fork Fishing Update | Tough Day Saturday, made the run to the Lower Mountain Fork for some fishing at Beavers Bend State Park near Broken Bow, OK. Been awhile since we went fishing on the Lower Mountain Fork, so did learn a few things... new fishing regulations and park fees - specifically, parking. Was a hot day with lots of people out and about. Water was murky, too. So, struck out on trout but at least caught a couple of Bluegill to avoid a strikeout! Do check out the video... lessons learned fishing the Lower Mountain Fork at Beavers Bend State Park - stay up to date on fishing regulations and park rules; fish for trout in cooler weather, and try scheduling a trip during the weekday to avoid the crowds. All for now and Good Luck and Good Fishing!
  8. Lake Lavon Fishing | Kayak Jug Lining This Round No pond fly fishing this round. This time "testing" out a new jug line setup. Back to Lake Lavon for more fishing. This round went kayak fishing with the jug lines, putting in at Highland Park. Was a calm morning on the lake when we started fishing, but later the wind kicked in. Caught several Blue Catfish and Channel Catfish. Ended up keeping three Blue Catfish. Jug lines worked well as well as the Safety Pins for the Tennis Ball Stringer... worked much better putting fish on the stringer compared to the shower clips we used before. Bite was steady with Gar taking more like stealing our shad. But, once we adjusted the jug line sets to fish the area near the trees, the bite picked up on Catfish! Fun trip... do check it out!
  9. Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod | 2wt for Fingerling Bass on a Mickey Finn Variant Another round of fishing with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod - 2wt fly rod with an Echo Ion 2/3wt Fly Reel. Fun time catching fingerling bass using a Mickey Finn variant. Tied the pattern on a size 10 streamer hook that cast easily with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Rod. Still liking the flex of the fiberglass rod! Will plan to get a video on how we tied the Mickey Finn variant. Do check back!
  10. Fly Fishing Tips from the Little Red Book of Fly Fishing | iFishNews Fishing Podcast 23 Third in our "Little Red Book of Fly Fishing" series podcast where I review fly fishing tips in preparation for the upcoming Trout Stocking Season. This week it's fly fishing tips 9 through 12! Tip 9: Take a Bow Tip 10: Watch That Thumb Tip 11: Say Hello to Good Casting Tip 12: William Tell Overture Do check it out!
  11. More TBT time... Don't forget Trout Stockings at Turner Falls! Another fun trip to beat the heat; this one is a TBT to Turner Falls Park in Davis, OK. The OPST Commando Head made for ease of casting by the Waterfall using an "air anchor" to avoid the metal railing along the walkway. See full video at: Turner Falls Torut FIshing.
  12. Cabelas CGR 2wt Fiberglass Fly Rod and Echo Ion Reel | Small Feeder Creek Fly Fishing Decided to fish a little feeder creek with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod. It's a 2wt with an Echo Ion 2/3wt Fly Reel. Handy fly rod that makes for fun fishing for little bluegill, sunfish, and fingerling bass! Been using the Cabelas CGR off and on over the years, and have not had any issues... do need to make a slight adjustment in timing the cast as the fiberglass rod has a slow action. Liking the rod and the ability to take advantage of rod's slow action to get a fishing fly to where the fish are lurking... of course in this case, a little feeder creek required minimal casting distance. PS: Lots of rain that morning caused another pond upstream from where we fished to overflow. Able to catch a Bass being washed down the feeder creek. See it at 3:41!
  13. TBT to beat the heat... fun times on the Lower Mountain Fork River fishing for Rainbow Trout at Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma. This was a nice one from that trip! See full video at Lower Mountain Fork.
  14. Another fun trip and a good one to remind us cool weather is coming soon and so is trout stocking season! See full video at TBT - Lower Illinois River Trout Fishing Anyone?
  15. More beat the heat with TBT to Denison. See full video at Denison Dam Fly Fishing
