  1. Y’all just sit like knots on a log or maybe make some magic wands. I don’t need your negativity. Not any fun!😛. BTW do you 2 ever tie abything or just run people down on here?
  2. Prolly have to make even smaller “blades” .possibly outa plastic instead of metal....
  3. Hot kind new bait for bass and redfish, chatter jigs. Wonder if you could get the smallest “blade” and no more than an hourglass lead eye and still get the chatter and it still be castable with fly gear? Stripping/pausing one in versus steady retrieve might be an issue. There’s a clear polycarbonate blade around...Anybody tried or prolly better than that anyone even care to do it????🤪
  4. Found a couple lil spinner blades... IMG_5239.MOV

    Snakes

    That’ll be 2 easy and no fun at all. Too weighty also and doesn’t float on pauses...Next rattling head. 12”ers 😳
  6. Rattle Wobbler./Wiggler...5 mm rattle in the foam for a loud click on the wobble. IMG_2579.MOV
  7. Possible option maybe....PM
  8. Been making the heck outa them. Done changed most rods to them and experimenting with some short furled tippets. Got up to 25#. You can feel the difference in the mono and fluro when twisting. Wish there was a way to eliminate the Surgeon knot or they really would be slick. Sure wish braided mono was available. Could make eyes in them and might even plaid them together for knot free stuff... Can dang near do the light line ones as fast as tying loops, joining knots. And like was said no memory and see the difference casting especially with the big and fluffy stuff. I like to double the loop at fly line especially on serious stuff. The leader loop bites/ chokes the running part of the loop rather than bottoming out and really deforming the loop mat’l... Furled leaders....Another amazing aspect of this stuff garnered from this site. Did anybody mention sliced bread? 😛Thanks!
  9. Those look like Tenkaraflies. That’s funny!🙄 Bout like my Tenkara steamer... 🤪
  10. Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought carry over stocker fish start to get a square tail or lots cleaner tails the longer they survive and loose the “stocker look.” Not sure of stocking size either. Saw somewhere TheGuadaloupe was listed as a top 10 trout stream. Propaganda? I learned one thing they wanted little stuff to be dumb stockers.... https://www.lonestarflyfishing.com/blog/2019/11/14/guadalupe-river-fishing-report-fall-2019 http://livingwatersflyfishing.com/guadalupe-river/
  11. not counting the 3 in the truck and 2 big 12wts in the bay boats. 9 flyrods, 6 cases weighs 12 pounds. Gotta abbreviate everything to 50#. Gotta rob couple spin reels for the 2ea 6.5” telescope rods. Could be 5 peeps fishing at once...Boots, waders, hip boots, flies, lures, nets. Clothes?.....clothes😳.....Funny huh?😛 No problem👍😛. May use the bear spray for us all to practice. Not sure how it made it back on plane from Wyoming? Might not be a go?
  12. Can’t find the original post. Trying out my new furled leaders today and was trying the snakes, wobblers, etc. The leaders worked great. I came across my red styrofoam ball gamechanger and tied it on to figure out how to make it swim. Bam!! Bout a 2# bass socked it. No pic cuz dang thing got unbuckled... Noticed when I paused the GC and the leader sank a little it would dive and wiggle some as it floated back up. Well back at the drawing board. Had some homemade shanks. Put the new wobbler head on one and leave the hackle off and add swimmer tail with a second hook to weight the tail. Could fuzz it up with some hackle maybe. Cut the bite of the back hook off? So is it a wobbler and has it left the building on Gamechanger???? To be tested....
