Too nice an evening Sunday to not go fishing. Went for a quick trip to Celebration Park to fish the East Pond. Decided to fish the 4wt Redington Pursuit Rod with the Echo Ion 2/3 Fly Reel spooled with a Rio Trout Max Skagit Head in 200 grains Bite started slow but picked up as… [read more]
Was out and about the other day; short on time but not short on fishing fun! Decided to take the 4wt fly rod that had the Rio Trout Max shooting head and Rio GripShooter running line and a conveniently tied Foam Grasshopper already on the leader to Bethany Lakes. Bite was slow but always good… [read more]
While on the way home from the day job, had the fishing bug strike. Luckily we keep a Micro Fly Rod in our backpack at the ready for these instances. This round fished Crowley Park in Richardson; caught a Bass and a Bluegill on a Foam Grasshopper. Had others short strike but not able to… [read more]
Tough time fishing lately, even with time off from work… pulled away with other “fam bam” commitments. No worries, been having a great time enjoying good food, strong drinks, live music, and great friends! Day job has impacted things as well, but did hook the fishing partner with a new kayak… got my Heritage Featherlite… [read more]
Fished the pond by Allen Cinemark Theater… officially called Cottonwood Creek Trail Pond, but Allen Theater Pond sounds better! Fished Tuesday using a 7-1/2′ 4wt fly rod and 4wt fly line and a Foam Grasshopper and caught Bass and Bluegill. Traditional fly line required false casting to get the fishing fly past the vegetation that… [read more]

Uses a size 2 streamer, orange dacron tying thread, beadchain eyes, and two purple marabou plumes. Nothing special… just tied… [read more]

Not able to fish today but did get a round in yesterday. Went with the 5wt lined with the OPST Commando Head. Struck out at Murphy in the morning, but did get some great practice in. Later, stopped at Bethany and caught three little Bass on a Purple Damsel Fly, and a bigger one on… [read more]
A quick trip to Bethany Lakes using the OPST Commando Head and a backup 9’wt Fly Rod. Setup cast well and made for easy distance casting either Roll Cast, Switch Cast, and other Spey style casts. No Bruisers but did get four fish to take our fishing fly – a Bluegill, a Sunfish, and two… [read more]
Fun time yesterday fishing the Switch Rod and “testing” a new pattern – the Krystal Dub Minnow or KDM. Simple pattern made with UV pearl dubbing and saddle hackles; uses a dubbing loop to wrap the dubbing around the hook. Been a while since we used a dubbing loop, but quickly remembered how to use… [read more]
