Back in 'Merica Fishing for 'Merica's Favorite Gamefish.
Got a text from Luc asking me if I wanted to come over Saturday and fish Canyon with him. It didn't take long for me to respond "You bet I do." Jet lag or not I was going fishing. I tied some big obnoxious articulated poppers when I came back from Taiwan. I wanted to create something loud the next time I go and fish for snakeheads. When Luc asked me to fish with him I thought it be a good time to try the fly out. I managed five blowups connecting with two. Luc had just as many blowups and I believe two fish to hand as well. All in all not a bad day having fished only from 5am to 9am.
The fly proved its worth and I gave the fly to Luc as I told him I'll tie more. Next time though I promised the new ones would have weedguards, something Luc had suggested but I did not have time to retie any more before our outing. Luckily I didn't really need the guards this time. More about the fly in future posts.
