Very nice collection of fish baits.8) What fish have you caught with those?:) I caught a lot of large tilapia once.:lol:

GW 05-31-2007 01:20 AM

Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Bluegill
Dry Flyfishing on small streams for Trout is my passion!
It's really tough to spend all day in a place like this...But someones got to do it :lol:

That looks some Adams, Blue Duns, a Mosquito, black gnat and a Caddis if I remember the names right. What size you tying? I use a slightly larger one around here the what you usually see for rainbows as we have few small trout but the crappie and bluegill love the small ones.

I guess I am assuming a little that you do tie them and not just fish with them. ;)

That's sure a nice stream, GW!:D I envy you! The surroundings there look like a nice place to hike too.

ive been fishing many times the last time i caught my 1st fish it was a retarted fish to it swam next to the hook and got caught it was a baby walleye but my other hobbie is funner but more painful ive broke my arm twice in 2 weeks skateboarding and broke my nose but in my defence i was looking at a hot girl across the street :oops:

fish 4 all, I'm using #12's for the Adams, and EHC...#16 for the BWO.
If I wanted to go specifically for the Gill's around here I would tie a White/Silver Bugger on a long shank #12.. though they readily take the Adams. I only have 1 Grizzly Dun Cape left so I'll have to restock soon.
I dont ussually follow fly recipes and enjoy using what I find or have around here at the time. I've used dryer lint for dubbing(perfect after a load of jeans) and have recently tied a "Beagle Hair" Streamer(family pet).
Lots of German Browns around in local waters with the occassional Brookie now and then but rarely. I live about 1 hour and 45 minutes away from the Salmon River but as of yet have not fished it. :oops:

Lupin, Hiking not too far from here will put you in places like this:

I love fly fishing. Used to tie my own dry flies, but had to stop when I got hte cats. Something about feathers, hooks, glue and cats just seemed like an accident waiting to happen. :P
