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

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
