    By / September 11, 2019 / Fishing

    Made it to Kroger Park on the commute home. Always good to have a fishing rod handy in the little pickup for times when traffic is slow and yours truly prefers to fish rather than drive in stop and go traffic. This round used the Foam Grasshopper with the TFO 6wt Flyrod coupled with the… [read more]

    Tough time fishing lately, even with time off from work… pulled away with other “fam bam” commitments.

  • Size 14 Foam Grasshopper… Worked Well! #flyfishing

    Fished Kroger Park and Bethany Lakes (Lower Pond) yesterday. Great way to enjoy Cinco De Mayo… fishing and then chillin’ later while grillin’!

    More Switch Rod practice this evening at Kroger Park. Got some nice distance cast and caught a Bass and a number of Bluegill.
