Nope, not gone, just on the move is all. Swinging into cat mode in a big way and still chasing walleye from time to time.

Something for you to ponder for your future fly tying prodjects saintmark is mayflys.

Soon they will start to hatch in a big way and the fish on the Red go nuts for them.

I have seen cats and walleye slurping them off the surface at night and in the early morning hours.

Goldeye would be very fun on a fly rod too, they go nuts over the flys at night near artificial light sources like bridge lights or streat lights.

I would be very interested in some larger then life Mayfly flys to try on the night bite this summer if you get them figured out. Any recomondations on a resonable fly rod rig would be apreciated too. Great that is all I need, another fishing adiction!

That would be a great line class fly rod record to shoot for, big channel cats on a fly rod. I have seen 20-25's slurping mayflys at night so it is possable if you worked the hatch hard!

So how big of a mayfly!! Similar to a sparrow or eagle.
The best way to start fly fishing is purchase a 19.95 kit from walmart. That could handle most goldeye and panfish. I use a 9/10 wt rod for pike. Just look at the wt rating on the shaft above the handle. 5/6 is for trout and pan fish. 7/8 for bass and then 9/10 for big bass, walleye, pike. 10/12 for bonefish, king salmon, and ocean fishing.
I'll check into those mayflies after this weekend. Give me a size of hook #20 to #22 are dry flies, #14 to #18 are common nymphs and mayflies, #10 to #14 are wooly buggers.
Just drop me a message, and I send you a sample or three. StM

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.

      I have done 4 with these. 3 for me and 1 for son in law. will be doing his from this year also with one. I ordered some skull hangers online that I hope work nice.  They support it at an angle so the head sits up and rack looks nicer than when hanging down when the skulls are flat on the wall. Will do a pic when I get them up. Getting hard to find room in the mancave. LOL I have done about a dozen using the boiling method. Deer hunting sure is fun.
