Recommended Posts


Hey there I am new to the sport of fly fishing, I have really been curious as to some hot spots and where to start?

Lil Sister CDC Sedge

Hook: Tiemco 100 #14

Thread: Uni-thread 8/0-Tan

Body: Hareline dubbin caddis green (back quarter) and Hareline dubbin dark hare's ear (front 3/4ths)

Underwing: CDC feather

Overwing: Elk hair- the one in the picture is natural, but I tend to go a little darker tan if possible with this fly


1. Wrap thread to back of hook.

2. Twist on a small amount of green dubbing. Less is more here, the back wraps should be pretty tight.


3. Wrap green dubbing about 1/4 way up hook shank. Then twist on dark dubbing.


4. Wrap dark dubbing up shank. Leave yourself a little bit of space near the front of the hook for the CDC and elk hair.

5. Tie in CDC feather.


6. Clip elk hair and clean out underfur. Tie in and square off the front as the head of the fly. Whip finish.

      Must be hunting some private land with those numbers flushed ? Way to go by the way you have a nice looking lab! Ended up hunting the Benson area today only got one but flushed a fair amount of hens. Never saw a deer but did run across few muzzy hunters.

      Just got back home, checked Coon Lake, Anoka. 3" at East access off Lexington. Only 20 ft off shore lots of ice cracking. 1" at the easement access West shore 3 ft. off shore. Couple 100 ducks on open water adjacent shore. 4 guys fishing the channel one with a double Eskimo hub. They said the channel had 4". May be a challenge to get my required 6" before Christmas with December warmer NOAA forecast. New K-drill rocks.   20201204_125309.mp4

      This was from today. West End, Wakemup Narrows and Frazer still have open water.

      Welcome and what would you like your handle to be?

      Try a lake in the canyon area the other day. Solid 4-5" most of the way out,  but got close to middle of the lake, chisel went thru on second hit. Looked like maybe 2",  decided to turn around and head back to shore.

      After I made the handle, I then saw yours...then I was like darn. 364 days until I can change it again so it’s not weird😂

      wednesday I drove up to backus from Elk River along 10 and saw one portable out on Crow Wing Lake and other than that most lakes appeared to have for the most part just skimmed over.  the loop home from backus i went through crosslake and then over to 169 along mille lacs and there were some small lakes frozen over but did not see a sole out on them.
