Fishing the Trinity River with the EmmRod Fly Rod! #emmrod

By / June 7, 2019 / Fishing

Liked the EmmRod Kayak King for fishing the local pond for Catfish. Very convenient to carry around or keep in the little pickup truck.

Ordered the Fly Rod, arrived yesterday but was not able to fish it till today. Had to make a run to Fort Worth, so brought the EmmRod Fly Rod and several Near Deere fishing flies just in case we had a chance at fishing today.

Was able to fish with it on the Trinity River in Fort Worth. Water was high with lots of flow from recent rains. Did manage to catch a few Longear Perch and Sunfish!

Looks like the fly rod will be made readily available for more side trips while on the commute home from the day job!

G’Day Glenn,
That Emmrod fly rod seems to work very well. Want one! I’ve contacted an OZ company that stocks some Emmmrods but not the fly rod version. They did for a while but not recently. I might be able to arrange to buy one from them. I’ll let you know if they get back to me.
Cheers,
Steve.

Great to hear Steve! Going to try the rod out again today to compare it with the OPST Commando Head vs a traditional 5wt flyline. The Commando Head does well but requires more line management due to the mono-running line. Plus I needed to pay attention to where I held the shooting line when I started the cast. More to come!

G’Day Again Glenn,
So far, no response from the OZ distributors of Emmrod’s. I should have bought one when they had them on their site! Cant help bad luck!
Cheers,
Steve.

Hi Steve! Bummer on the EmmRod. Handy and compact rods, really liking them. Some bad luck here… Three trips, three strikout… Gotta break this streak. Starting to get the shakes not having a fish to fight on the end of my line!
Take care,
Glenn
