  1. Focus on quality fly line, then the rod, and then a reel. Unless fishing for species that need a drag. Video shows you don't n.eed a reel to catch a trout. Using a quality wf flyline $9.99 fly rod and no fly reel! https://youtu.be/Aon_H_AnQS0
  2. Try watching your fly line like you would watch a strike indicator. YouTube Shorts showing when I set the hook when I don't use an indicator. Give it a try next trip!
  3. Plan was to fish Waterloo Park Pond in Denison with Centerpin Combo but switched last minute to a One-Handed Spey Fly Fishing Combo that used the OPST Commando Head 175grn on a 4wt, 8ft fly rod. Cold and windy morning, I decided to keep it simple and use on fishing fly - an Olive Near Deere. I would adjust my retrieve and depth until I limited out. Do check out the video where I find the pattern limit out! Note: I used a 175 grain not a 200 grain OPST Commando Head that was mentioned in the video.
  4. Fishing Flies Anyone? #flyfishing #fishing #livestream This round I talk about fishing flies and details on a recently posted long form video. In particular I mention fly tying and suggest learning to tie your favorite fishing fly. https://youtu.be/TG_-6yXkcjY
  5. Compiled videos from past posts about fly tying with a mix of fly fishing that may be of interest to some. Do check it out! Fishing Flies and More
  6. Short on time but open to available fishing opportunities, made a quick trip to the local pond for Centerpin Fishing for Bullheads using the Simple Dough Bait Recipe. This time, I let the dough bait harden overnight, and then coated it with some flour. It stayed on the hook well, but I did need to dip it in water before baiting the hook. Give it a try, and do check back liking the NGT Centerpin Reel decided to order a second one. It delivered Friday, plan to show it at the next livestream! https://youtu.be/-M5U1BAUyRY
  7. Agree on all points. Main point was to measure response to a visual cue and compare it to a Bass' speed.
  8. Quick update from the Team on recent happenings and information on the Hookset Timer, a simple game to measure your response time to a visual cue and then comparing it to a Bass' speed. Do check it out at Hookset Timer https://youtu.be/zY0I5GRxv8U
  9. Reader reach out about tying the Black Near Deere Variant after trying to locate the post online. Pictures were missing. Here is the updated post... "Black Near Deere Variant".
  10. Apologies for the test livestream last night. I was working on a video switcher hardware and thought I was streaming unlisted. Did get some of the bugs worked out, but still need to figure a way to monitor audio to make sure sound is coming through. No worries, have a workaround for now. This round I talk briefly about the Centerpin Fishing at the local pond using bread and then later a dough bait recipe from an article I posted a few years back. Additionally, I mention a fly fishing tip that helps older fishermen with a touch of nearsighted vision line their fly rods a little more easier! Also, I mention an app that I am working on to check your hookset, at least the timing of it. Stay tuned for more. Will post soon as I get it working. Do check it out! https://youtu.be/yrsjvPwkO7g
  11. Bread For Catfish Bait | Centerpin Fishing Series #fishing #pondfishing #catfish Decided to fish the local pond to verify if there were still fish lurking in it. In the past, the pond held some nice size Catfish. I suspect there may still be a Bruiser or two but this round I managed three good sized Bullheads. I used the NGT Centerpin Reel and a Cabelas TLR Switch Rod for the rod/reel combo, and then I used bread formed into bread balls for bait. The drag free capability of the Centerpin made for some interesting strikes as I watched the fish take the bait and run with it. https://youtu.be/glHwrWpxUgI
  12. Quick Howdy from yours' truly! https://youtu.be/7v8NZB5KFFE
  13. Ever tried tying a tippet ring to your fly leader with cold, wet fingers? Or, while wearing gloves? Try this fishing tip next round, it may be useful to those of us who use tippet rings. #fishing #flyfishing #tips
  14. Merry Christmas! What did Santa bring?
  15. Merry Christmas! Hope all had some great gifts... fishing related of course! Answering a question on another thread about the Blue River Catch and Release Area, I put this together for ease of reference. Hope it helps for anyone interesting in fishing the Blue's C-n-R!

  16. Don't forget the Muddler Minnow. Works for Bass but Trout like them, too!
  17. A few updates from recent happenings from the Team!
  18. Try These Trout Fishing Lures 😃 #fishing #ultralightfishing #tips What is in our tackle box when ultralight baitcasting aka BFS Fishing? Here is a video shorts detailing what we like!
  19. First time fishing with a Center Pin Reel. Had to practice and get my timing and release down. Managed to catch two Trout, improve my casting, and then closed out with ultralight baitcasting to get three more trout to make a limit. Do check back for more Center Pin Fishing. New way to fish for yours truly. Would be a great way to fish the tailrace at Denison Dam, Lewisville Lake Ecological Learning Area, and other rivers. For now, going to keep practicing at local ponds!
  20. Trout Stocking Season continues here in Texas. Here are three locations to keep in mind this weekend!
  21. Great time on the Blue River today. Opted for the Switch Rod knowing I would have a clobbered back cast fishing the spot I was targeting today.
  22. Trout stocking at our local pond - Bethany Lakes in Allen, Texas! Not able to see them stock the trout but did make it later in the evening. Lots of trout, lots of fishermen, luckily did manage to limit out! https://youtu.be/SA4Zf4SS4r4
  23. Super Dupers and Ultralight Gear | Average Joe's Broadcast from the Let's Talk Fishing Series 😎 Trout stockings are in full swing in Texas, and Oklahoma remains a hot spot for trout fishing fun, too! Do check out this livestream as we talk about catching a limit of trout using Super Dupers and Ultralight Gear! https://youtu.be/vpMvj-7WH8c
  24. Fished the Blue River for trout this round. Opted for Super Dupers and Ultralight Fishing Gear. Three of us fished - two fished with Ultralight Spinning Gear and yours truly fished with Ultralight Baitcasting gear. Cold front rolled in the night before dropping the temps below freezing. Anticipating trout tending deeper, decided to fish Super Dupers. Stopped at Scotty's Blue River One Stop to restock on Super Dupers - picked up Rainbow Trout, Silver, and Copper Super Dupers to add to the gold and silver ones I already had. After a quick check at the low water crossing, went downriver to fish. After finding the pattern limited out with three trout each! PS: Yours truly wore hip waders and went a little too deep. Lesson learned where Pants Waders or Chest Waders. Also, we did have a wading boot blowout after many seasons. Secured the sole with rope to make it last one more trip. It worked... and has now been retired.
