Hey Big D
Almost done. Will mail Next Wed. at the latest. Now these flys look puffy until they get wet and then they imitate chubs or minnows. Sorry for being slow but am still recoviering from Rotor cuff surgery from JAN. It is a trip tying with only one good hand and a finger. These flys are Trolled at least 25-50 yards behind the boat at 1/2MPH. Move your rod in slow figure eight patterns. Tried them out at Davis yesterday and did real well for not knowing the lake. CandR'd over 10 smaller (12=14") and one 3-4lber. I use a 5w St Croix and a St Croix 9' UL Salmon rod with leadcore to get the fly deep. Also use a plastic disc that eliminates having to move the rod as it makes the fly wobble and weave.
Heading for Eagle Lake Friday Am and will return Tuesday or Wed. Going to "ruff" it in a 2 bdrm cabin with kitchen, micro, disc TV, cleaning table, Hope to get some pictures for the forum and swappers.
Thanks Jim for the status report and for the info on Davis Lake. Any damselflies hatching up there yet?
Good luck up at Eagle Lake!!
