  • Liking the Foam Cutters…. #flytying #foamdamselfly #foamgrasshopper

    By / February 23, 2018 / Fishing

    Picked up a Stonefly/Hopper foam cutter from River Road Creations via Feather Craft. Used their Damsel Fly Cutter and Beavertail Cutter and liked them. Plan was to reverse the Stonefly/Hopper pattern to tie a Foam Grasshopper. Liked the results, much more consistent pattern then cutting them using scissors and a template. Did a review of… [read more]

  • One Fly Quick Trip… Foam Damsel Fly! #flytying

    By / August 21, 2017 / Bass, Bethany Lakes

    Back out again with a one fly quick trip. This time downsized to a size 12 in a Foam Damsel Fly. Still getting short strikes on Bluegill but did get consistent hook ups with fingerling Bass. Did have a larger Bass take but it threw the hook soon after taking the fly. Another simple and… [read more]

  • Wine Cork Micro Flyrod Gets Three Bass…!

    By / March 24, 2016 / Bass, Bethany Lakes

    Took the Wine Cork Micro Flyrod for a quick trip to Bethany this round. Only had 15″ to fish; caught three Bass that went for a Foam Damsel Fly! Cooler temps compared to the other day but seemed like the Bass (and Bluegill) remain lurking in the shallows. Fun stuff!  

  • Slow Bite, Still Fun!

    Weekend was wet and a little crazy due to the rainy weather. Today, was able to finish work early enough to go fishing! Fished Bethany Lakes,… slow bite but did hook a few fish – two Bass, a little Catfish, and a Sunfish! Also, did get a video clip of the action when a couple caught… [read more]
