On a whim bought an EmmRod in their Kayak King Spinning Rod model to use for kayak fishing. Put the order in while on a cruise last week. Rod arrived while we were having fun in the sun and ocean. On our return, rigged up an old spinning reel that we managed to get working… [read more]
Did a little fly tying in preps for TRWD Flyfest tomorrow! Then, hit the local pond for some micro fly rod fishing! Fun stuff! Started with a foam damsel fly but fish were not active on the surface. Tied a Pheasant Tail Nymph and caught several Sunfish/Bluegill before calling it a trip. Fun times!

This round it was little Sunfish and Bluegill at Celebration Park’s North… [read more]
Follow-up video of the action we saw while scouting a local pond for Catfish. Had a number of Catfish look at our bait and many more Sunfish and Bluegill peck at our bait. Fun time but ended this round without a Catfish. One did bend our hook to get away though!
