Don't get bitten by a pike, it's nasty.

I second that lol.gif I was about to release this one, but its ingratitude made it a guest of honor at the dinner table.



About the still vs. moving water: to me still water means stockies and moving water wild fish. It is not hard to make a preference between these two.

I like to fish no matter the water type. So I'll attempt to tie for all types of fly fishing.

Considering that I'm just outside Houston, TX, and most of our rivers anywhere NEAR here are usually 30ft deep and running fast enough to take you into the Gulf in minutes, I stick mainly to stillwater. Love throwing a Red Tag to the monster bream (that's bluegills and the like, for those of you who are geographically/linguistically challenged). hysterical.gif

I also love throwing the dries for gills, but occasionally sink to a popper/dropper combo. More often than not, the bass will go for the popper, and the gills for the dropper; so I cover all my bases. rolleyes.gif

Both for me. I tie mostly stream flies for trout, but mostly only get to fish stillwater for bluegill. Gills could care less if it's a trout fly, they pound the things, so I just practice and test my flies for my occasional trips to trout country.

Mainly rvers since that's what I enjoy to fish most. But my flies could be fished either or.

I like tying for flowing water, and I guess the occasional flies for a trip to a local lake. Really, I'll fish wherever the fish are. punk.gif

"Fly-fishers are usually brain-workers in society. Along the banks of purling streams, beneath the shadows of umbrageous trees, or in the secluded nooks of charming lakes, they have ever been found, drinking deep of the invigorating forces of nature - giving rest and tone to over-taxed brains and wearied nerves - while gracefully wielding the supple rod, the invisible leader, and the fairy-like fly."
