Have been playing with some downsized crab flies over the Christmas period.... And being summer here I used this morning's run-out to test their usefulness on my 2 weight.... The patterns themselves are very simple, and modelled on an Australian pattern known as the VGDC fly (Voltzy's Goldy Destroyer Fly), which is a killer on sweetlip (blue and brown bastards, and golden trevally). My goal was to make them smaller and lighter, and tie them with weedguards. So I tied up a few on size 6 SL45S and B10S for local bream, mangrove snapper, grunter (javelin) and a few other things to have a look at. It was a tough morning, but I sighted a number of fish, and overall was definitely successful. It's closed season for the barramundi, so I only got one shot off at the fella I sighted.... Unfortunately it was a poorly composed photo without a polarised filter on the lens It's been a tough end to 2013 for me, so it was good to get on the water and have a think by myself... I'm still messed up, but hey... I can still tie flies and cast the wand
Hey all.. Not doing so great at the moment... But I am going stir crazy so needed to get out of the house this morning. Visited one of my favourite freshwater locations to find both the banks and water overgrown with weeds and lillies... Oh well.. some accurate casting ewas required, and while not many were eager, atleast a couple of little fellas were hungry (A bigger one took the fly about 10 minutes later). We haven't had a great wet season this year, hence the darker colours. Still a very pretty fish to add to my list of captures on the little black and pink woolly bugger I like so much. It came from this gap in the water lillies. Always makes for a fun time with the 2 weight Ended up moving downstream as the tarpon weren'[t really playing and the tilapia were very spooky. I tied on one of Kirk Dietrich's Mylar Poppers from the Saltwater cravings swap hosted by Panama Red. I love the way it sits in the water, and it's colours in the sunlight are simply sexy. Just another reason why I love swapping with the guys and girls on here. THANKS!
