Also had good luck with landing bass on both nymphs and streamers. Even had a double hook-up with a bluegill on a Klinkhammer and a small bass on a Copper John dropper.
I started tying flies about 3 years ago and one of the first was a Micky Finn. I rarely fish this, probably because it has never produced for me, but it did come through with this small bass on the first cast.
|Ian's Streamer and a Simple Pheasant Tail|
Ian's beadhead black and gold streamer (exchanged in a fly swap earlier this year) continues to produce. Ian sent me two of these in the swap and, since one was lost, I tied up a couple more. While at the vise, I also tied a very simple Pheasant Tail by Ben Turpin shown on the Fly & Fin blog. I used orange thread to add in a hotspot.
I posted some more pics on the Gin Clear Facebook page as well. Do me a favor and "Like" this page, if you haven't already. Once I reach 20 "Likes" it becomes official in eyes of Facebook.

And the Red Sox.... Vowed not to post again about them until they reached .500, but here is something to get excited about. They just took two from the Yankees in the Bronx with Josh Beckett throwing a 6 inning, 4 hit shutout last night and bullpen only giving up three more hits with no runs to close out the game.
19-20, one game shy of .500 -- will this series with the Yanks be the Red Sox turning point this season?
