  1. Very cool, your nymphs, especially the black scorpion are really cool.
  2. Great score! I’m 66 years old and have been fly fishing for a lot of those years and I still can’t make up my mind which means of carrying stuff Iike. Maybe when I grow up I’ll figure it out.😉
  3. Dean, yes I’ve been trying to things together, I also bought a bamboo fly rod blank that I’m trying to finish up. I read a article on making floatant that’s similar to fly Agra so yea doing that to. Mike.
  4. I typically fish in the winter, I just pick my days when the weather and the roads aren’t to bad. My biggest problem was my feet, I wear size 9 1/2 shoes so I bought some size 13 wading boots and wear one thinner pair of wool and one heavy pair of alpaca socks and I’ve got room to wiggle my toes. This year so far no fishing , came down with COVID in early December and still dealing with some after affects. I do need to get up to Grayling soon, I purchased a bamboo fly rod blank from a builder up there and it’s ready for pickup. Mike.
  5. I would suggest watching some of Tim Neal’s tying videos. His website is best value fly tying, but his videos are Michigan based flies, primarily parachute dries and emergers. While he uses mostly deer belly hair for his parachutes it’s not hard to make the jump to synthetic materials. I also like his style of wrapping the post, and his videos are pretty helpful. Mike.
  6. Yup he’s going to like that!
  7. I prefer the dental floss pulls, cheap and last forever. Mike.
  8. Mark, that is cool! Thanks for the all work you put into the sbs! Mike.
  9. Cool, looking forward to sbs. Definitely a smallmouth killer.
  10. Nice! I love fishing on those kind of days. Mike.
  11. Very cool caddis Flytire, thanks for sharing!
  12. Nice, the sculpins are especially cool. Bluegills are such a blast on fly tackle! Mike.
  13. Beautiful pics DF, I wish I lived closer to trout streams here, but I’ve recently discovered a local river has excellent smallmouth and pike. It’s only a few miles from home as opposed to 150 miles to my favorite trout stream. It’s really been fun fishing this river this late summer! I’ll add the Murdich minnow has proved to be awesome for these fish. Mike.
  14. I’ve been totally immersed in smallmouth bass fishing close to home, during the warmer parts of August and September the Murdoch minnow was awesome, but cooler weather of late has certainly made things more challenging. I’ve settled on the red eye leech as good, but thought I might add some crayfish patterns. I hope these work, and I will try other colors. This is the evo crayfish pattern from nomad anglers, pretty simple, looks cool, I shall see how it works. Mike.
