First time out

2 posts in this topic

So I finally caved in and bought myself a flyrod outfit Saturday, I took it out today for some panfish and crappies, WHAT A BLAST!!!

I picked up a cheap combo from Dicks, it was a Pfluefer Medallion Pro 5wt 9ft6inch. I had no idea what to throw, so I used a gold head prince nymph and the fish hit it almost every cast until the fly was destroyed. It definately made fishing for sunnies fun again, and would recommend it to anyone even thinking about trying it. After about 5 minutes I figured out casting, it really isnt that hard.

Hopefully I will figure out what types of stuff to throw at the smallies in our rivers, that sounds even more fun!

I sense another whose about ready to be overwhelmed by the fly fishing addition...now start tying your own flies and it's all over for you! Isn't it a great feeling?

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
