  1. Just waiting for my final proof copy to come. It should be here this week. Once I go through that then it's publication time. Shouldn't be to much longer.
  2. Yep agree with everything you guys say about big Cats. But I hate to say this but on the Red River (in Manitoba) I have only caught 3 Cats that were 20 inches or smaller. Every thing else has been 30 or above. Just lucky to live in the home of big Cats.
  3. Pattern was a tan DDH Minnow. Great all around fly for just about anything. That Lab must have been on heck of a fight!!!!
  4. Had a great evening with a couple of friends. I landed 5 Cats from 34-37 inches and Derek and Brock, brothers, landed 8 fish between them. Of course I didn't get pictures of myself but I did get a couple of the boys landing some nice fish up to 38 inches.
  5. I blend rabbit with a holographic flash. Use to be sold by Superfly and they called it Diamond Dub Holographic (hence the name DDH). I forget the name Hareline sells it under but they do carry it.
  6. Opps, got the order of the flies wrong the second is the DDH Leech and the first is the DDH Minnow.
  7. The DDH Leech is one colour of dubbing for the whole body, so if I am tying a brown DDH then the tail is a rust brown marabou with the same colour of dubbing for a body. With the minnows I use three different colours of dubbing for the body. Case in point the tan DDH Minnow will have a tan marabou tail then the body (for the size of hook I use ) is 2 clumps of tan dubbing, two clumps of red for the throat and four clumps of an olive bronze UV synthetic for the head. There are time when I switch out the bead chain eyes and use 6mm plastic eyes. Take a look below the first fly is a DDH Leech and the second is the DDH Minnow. I do the minnow in white, tan, and pale yellow. The third fly is what I call a DDH Head. Only two colours and can be any combination you like.
  8. I wish actually that is East Goose Lake and is located in the town of Roblin. What a great little fishery.
  9. The fly we were using were DDH Minnows. My son was using white while I used a tan colour. Kevin never changed the fly all weekend.
  10. Headed out to the Parklands area for some trout and man was it fun. My son, Kevin, caught most of the big Tigers, 1-27, 3-26, 1-24, and 1-20 inches. He also had a few smaller fish as well. For myself I had 4 Bows from 22-24, a 26 Tiger and a few more from 14-19 inches. What a weekend. A couple of pictures.
  11. Couple of buddies caught these beauties. Wish it was me!
  12. Well the book is getting closer to publication. As of now it is 65% complete. I do have another editing round to go in the next couple of weeks so it should be out mid July.
  13. Just got my copy of this book and let me tell you it is awesome. Loaded with tips and tricks to make poppers out of cork, wood, or foam and Kirk also shows how to apply different bodies from foil and paint. Truly works of art. As you can see they do work.

  14. I also have been using elastic bands for years, 1970 to be exact, And although they don't last I have taken a whole pile of fish on them. They are especially effective on Carp. What I do is go to the Dollar Store and pick up a bag of hair elastics. Get about 250 of them for a buck or two.
  15. Size 12 hook and the beads are called Black Shadow.
