Another round of fishing with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod – 2wt fly rod with an Echo Ion 2/3wt Fly Reel. Fun time catching fingerling bass using a Mickey Finn variant. Tied the pattern on a size 10 streamer hook that cast easily with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Rod. Still liking the flex of… [read more]
Decided to fish a little feeder creek with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod. It’s a 2wt with an Echo Ion 2/3wt Fly Reel. Handy fly rod that makes for fun fishing for little bluegill, sunfish, and fingerling bass! Been using the Cabelas CGR off and on over the years, and have not had any… [read more]
Finally found the pattern for the tight lipped Bluegill at the local pond. Went with a tandem rigged foam spider and scud! Most fish went for the trailing scud and was surprised the little bass were readily striking the scud! Foam Spider was a diy pattern made from Wapsi’s Foam Spider Kit. The Scud was… [read more]
Starting to get over a cold, I was able to make it to the local pond and flex the little 2wt fiberglass flyfishing combo – Cabelas 2wt CGR 6’2″ fly rod and Orvis Hydros Sl1 2 wt. Tied several tenkara fishing flies and constructed a 7 foot tapered leader using a 30lbs, 15lbs, and 6lbs… [read more]
Almost there… new fly line delivered the other day at the Cabelas in Allen. Picked it up but this cold and the recent storms has yours truly sidetracked. Do hope to be fishing a pond sooner than later with the Cabelas CGR 2wt Fiberglass Rod and Orvis Hyrdos SL1 soon!
Fished a new place yesterday – December 27, 2019… Pottsboro Lake located just north of Dallas in the town of the same name… Pottsboro. Stocked with trout earlier in the month, was not sure if the trout would still be there. It’s a small pond and may have had heavy fishing pressure. As it turns… [read more]
Out and about fishing with the Cabelas CGR Fiberglass. Thought it was a three weight but it is a two weight. Put a 3wt Cabelas Prestige Plus 1 reel from another rod on it. Cast nicely… even caught a little Bass at the local pond! Fun stuff!
Out running an errand after work today. Sidetracked with some fishing at Kroger Park (aka Bethany Ridge Park). Caught Bluegill on the 2wt Cabelas CGR Fiberglass Rod and the Echo Ion 2/3 Reel. All went for a variant of the PMC Emerger… the PMC GNE! Log Book Entry: 3/9/17 Location: Bethany Ridge Park Pond… [read more]

Fished Bethany Lakes Saturday morning. Brought the Cabelas CGR 2-weight fly rod and the 2/3 Echo Ion fly reel. Fished a “The Simple Fly” (TSF) – a very simple fishing fly made with a hook, pearl chenille, and white chenille. If desired, add a bead head. Also, fished the Marilyn Monroe Tenkara Fly, a Red/White… [read more]

Tied a Tenkara Fly in a reverse hackle Olive Body and White Hackle pattern. For ease of reference, calling it an Olive/White Tenkara Fly. Tested it out a Sonic Pond and caught a Bass with it. Bite seemed slow, so headed to the Lower Pond at Bethany Lakes. Pond was clobbered with lots of green… [read more]
