Hello all.

I have not posted on this side of the forum yet.

My name's Eric, from Mpls. I am an avid flyfisherman who just began regularly fishing "conventional" tackle this year to broaden my spectrum and to really explore multi species fishing.

The idea is to find fish I know little or nothing about with lures or bait, then be able to tie appropriate flys and figure out how to get them to the right place.

I Dug out my vice this weekend and re-organised my work room in prep for a winter of rod building and repair and realised my flyrods did not get as much of a work out this summer as usual, especially my lighter line rods (3wt, 2wt).

Still plenty time yet to get them wet.

What are you all fishing for right now?

What are you all tying right now?

Welcome aboard, Eric!

I haven't been out much or tying at all lately, but hope to find a little time to trout fish before the season's over, then a smallmouth outing or two is in store for October.

I've been fishing steelhead and browns and have been tying x legs, soft hackle nymphs, stones, and bunny leeches. My buddies just went out to denver and then are heading to the keys for some flats fishing. I've got to do everything to keep my mind off the fact I wasn't able to go with! tongue.gif

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
