September flies from the vise

Recommended Posts

C'mon guys. You're polluting the forum with those. What's next? Hackle on a store bought and jig and an earthworm? And then try to call it a fly.

 

Got my wife going to PetSmart next time she goes to the city. LOL

There was a time I simply refused to use a SanJuan WORM! Not so much last few years. If it ain't a feather rials people around here. I could care less, free country, foraging for mat'l in an area with no fly shops is challenging, fun and sometimes productive. Fly tying is a living craft you fuddy duddies can KODA!!!!! Starting with you vicrider..."lol" doesn't excuse the sarcasm!

restocking salmon boxes,

Besure, designed by Robert Chaisson, Nova Scotia, for the Margaree. Robert is a guide and a great person I've copied this and a few of his patterns.

Cphubert last one is interesting, is the bead attached to a mono post?

Where do you fish for Salmon?

I've had 2 trips cancelled to lake Erie, but it's still on my bucket list.

fshng2- Yes the bead is on a mono post I used to use a bent bead head pin but switched to mono because I was told it was more durable. I fish Nova Scotia or PEI (small run on the Morell) used to fish Gaspe on occasion. I have heard that the Atlantic's where making a return in the lake Champlain and Ontario systems. We have a small (2 river) brood stock fishery in Connecticut left over from the Connecticut river restoration project, late fall into winter.

An experiment:

Hiding at the front of the trailer hook there is a sequin. I am hoping it will make the whole back wiggle. And I wonder if the zonker will get in the way and if it is going to cast well.
