Fun time fishing the 4wt Redington Pursuit Fly Rod. Not used it for some time. Dusted it off along with the Ross Flystart 2 Reel that we picked up from Amazon several years ago. Reel came with backing and a Weight Forward 4wt line.
Had planned to fish Towne Lake in Mckinney but the stocking was postponed due to weather. Things cleared up and made the run to Frisco Commons and fished for trout. Like in years past, something was hatching. Managed to land four and miss several others using a Griffith’s Gnat and a PMC Emerger. See how… [read more]
Was on the road Saturday. Travel was unrelated to fishing but was able to wet a line! Did some fly fishing with the little 2wt CGR Fiberglass Rod from Cabelas! Handy little rod that is easy to pack while traveling. Remembered Carl Young Park was listed in Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Trout Stocking Schedule… [read more]
Caught a Shellcracker Saturday morning on a PMC Emerger at Bethany Lakes, then got a call from our fishing buddy to load the jon boat and do some jug lining for Catfish. Hit Lavon and wound up catching four Catfish. Also found the Yellow Bass were lurking near the boat ramp. Went back Sunday with… [read more]
With the 2016-2017 Texas Rainbow Trout Stocking Season closing out in our area, decided to fish Waterloo Park Pond in Denison this morning. Bite was steady with a limit taken on PMC Emergers. That said, next week is TRWD Flyfest in Fort Worth; we plan to join the fun, learn more about fly fishing things,… [read more]
Only one trout this morning at Frisco Commons Pond. Windy conditions and warm temps but others were hooking up with the stocker trout! For your’s truly, the one went for a PMC Emerger, but did lose several missed strikes. Fun time still! Only one #trout this round at #friscocommons …still good to get out. Went… [read more]
Yesterday while fishing Waterloo Park Pond, we mentioned in our earlier post that we ran out of the “go to” fishing fly that the trout were keying on. A hatch was in progress, there were bugs all around, and the trout wanted either a size 16 Griffith’s Gnat or a size 20 Black Midge. Not… [read more]
Fun time limiting out on trout at Waterloo Park Pond in Denison. Dry Flies were the key this round with the Griffith’s Gnat in size 16 being the “go to” fishing fly. But, as luck would have it, ran out of them. Did manage to get the trout to bite on other dry flies despite… [read more]
Quick trip to the local pond yesterday for some fun with little Bluegill. Caught five that went for a PMC Emerger! No Bruisers but still lots of fun! Pictures at the end of the video are blurry; gotta work on the photography skills but the video action tells the story! PS: Really liking the new… [read more]
Had a couple of Readers ask about the fishing fly we have been using to catch the trout feeding on and/or near the water’s surface. We have been using two patterns – the Griffith’s Gnat tied on a caddis hook and the PMC Emerger. Since we could not find instructions online on how to tie… [read more]
