Very tiny creek, Tons of fish!
McFlyLures posted a topic in Fly Fishing Gear & TechniquesOne of the best days I have ever had fishing! It was unique fishing, and definitely something I want to go do again. Who knew this small creek would have fish in it, but there they were. And tons of them as well! The water was crystal clear, so I was also able to get more underwater footage, and quality underwater footage than I have ever been able to in the past. It seemed like every fish got to swim away on camera. So the moral of the story is, if you see a trickle of a creek, and think to yourself that its not worth exploring because it could not hold fish in it, maybe give it a 2nd thought. It might be one of the more unique experiences you have ever had fishing! So as always, with these small secretive creeks, I will not be able to tell you the actual location or creek name, however I can say that it is located somewhere in the south west tip of Colorado, located in the San Juan Forest which is in the lower stretch of the Rocky Mountains. Its beautiful here, and densely forested. Its also very remote and you will rarely see anyone while out exploring. But this means you should be careful! Always go with someone else, and bring a small first aid kit incase something does happen.
I finally was able to get some small creek action on my new 7'6" 2wt fly rod. It was truly amazing to be able to site fish these beautiful little fish. Granted, they were small, but size isn't everything, at least thats what I tell myself... HAHA So this really was one of the prettiest places I have ever been. The video really does not do it justice, but it was amazing! Beautiful mountains surrounding a small meandering creek, with tall grasses and brush cluttering the banks. I really could not have asked for a more amazing setting. The fact that the fish were so eager to hit the dry fly was truly an amazing thing. This was the first time I had ever fished where the dry out fished a nymph. I was really happy I got some this early in the season on my grasshopper pattern that I call "Mini-Me".
On tube flies?
Li'lDave posted a topic in Beginner's CornerHI all. Beginners question for tying tubes. I'm pretty sure I can source the appropriate materials.... Just wondering if there are any special skills or techniques that we need to develop to be successful? Am looking at tying up some streamers on tubes for a mate who will be fishing BC in the Fall. Many thanks.
jamesbrock3 posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchI've been messing around tying some of Kelly Galloup Style Articulated flies. Here is my Sex Dungeon fly. Just deer hair, lead eyes, cactus chenille, marabou, hackle, b10s hook for front, and 3x streamer hook in the back!
Sea-Run Cutthroat Puget Sound
Colel311 posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchI'm looking into this fishery and plan on giving it a shot in the next few weeks. What are your favorite patterns and some that are easy to tie? I plan on fishing top water sand lance patterns with a WF floating line primarily, anything else I should know as far as flies and tackle go? Thanks for the replies
