Hopper/Stone-fly Foam Cutter #flytying

By / February 20, 2018 / Fishing

Rainy day, so what better way to spend a moment checking out the latest Feather Craft Catalog. Got reeled in and bought a foam ant tying kit that makes 24 foam ants like the Betts version. And then, bought the Hopper/Stone-fly Foam Cutter in size 10. Going to use them to make the Foam Grasshopper… [read more]

OPST Commando Head on a Short 4wt Fly Rod #flyfishing

By / February 15, 2018 / Fishing

Originally planned to “test” the RIO Trout Max shooting head using a short 5′ 3″ 4wt Fly Rod. But, grabbed the wrong reel and ended up using the OPST Commando Head Skajit line instead. Works well on a 9′ 5wt, looks like it works well on the short 4wt Fly Rod, too!

Quick Tie Demo… Foam Grasshopper #flytying

By / February 12, 2018 / Fishing

Did a quick tie demo of the Olive Near Deere. Was fun to do; decided to make a demo of the Foam Grasshopper variant that is much simpler than the original pattern. This one uses a size 12 Streamer and no Chenille. Works well on Bluegill and Bass on local ponds. And, they are quick… [read more]
