|Powers Fly Fishing||
It was a great night on my favorite water with great friends. I am very happy to catch my first striper on my new Winston BIII X TH 11 footer. I used a 400gr Skagit Max short, an itermediate tip and 20 lb flouro. I used a large but sparse flat wing on a 4/0. I love this set up. It is light and powerful and I can make any cast I need.
Well it's been a month or so since my first Shad of the season. It sure was nice to get out and get into the thick of them tonight. They were on the chartuese and punk slut fly. I also had the great pleasure of taking s new fly fisherman out in the water tonight. These things are just damn fun.
I took one of my new sticks out. I used a 400gr Skagit Max short, 10 ft of t10 and 35 lb rio slick shooter. I hooked into a submarine headed to Europe. Home water and two Handers rule.
It has been tough to get out in the water recently. At least I can live vicariously through my friends. This weekend I got a text from one of my former players who was looking to try a wild brownie stream I hit once last year. After talking him through location, entomology, fly selection and tactics for the days conditions he was off to visit this small tailwater. I was very satisfied when he sent me a pic of this football. Great work! Maybe I can hit the stream soon.
