Spent Partridge Caddis


Christened the UL rod Steve built.
First fish is a very small Pollock. First of the year. Second is a Coalie. Same family as pollock and very common up here. This was around 1lb and rod coped well. I will keep trying to hook a 4lb Poll
Back to the land of the living
I've seen worse ... MUCH worse ... from people who think they're masters.   That garbage from Jackson Pollock gets big money from people with no taste.   Those two paintings are pretty good.
Fly caught salty fish pictures
Great pix, John. Those pollock are extremely tasty - kinda like haddock or cod. A friend of mine who lives up in Jonesport used to catch some pretty nice ones right off the docks.

Big flys with small hooks
From my experience, pike will hit the head of a bait. So do cod, perch, Pollock to name a few. I still prefer a bait shorter than those pictured as I find them a pain to cast and don't take fish any b
My Prawn Pattern
Lol...thanks Guys....I actually reside in the uk, Hoping to catch a Bass or two with it? You'll be fighting off seatrout, Pollock or mullet depending on your area.

Pan fish tickler.
The Black one is a Ballan Wrasse. There are also Cuckoo Wrasse in the same area. They are unbelievably strong and even a small one tests your rod as it tries to hit the kelp beds. They have big rubber

Little Pups
All great. The orange bodied one bottom right very much like a fly I tie to imitate juvenile Pollock in the local estuary. Seatrout love it.

Glad they got there. I'm using some today for wrasse and pollock in the salt.

Striper Decline
TWF, I hope we're all wrong too, but I'm afraid we're not. At least in VA, there are a lot more species to pursue than we have up here. In this neck of the woods, it's stripers, blues,
