View Full Version : playing around with wire

06-03-2007, 02:07 PM
was playing around with wire and flashabou and tied this up. Took it to the reservioir here in good ole Lima Ohio and was catching some small bluegills and a fair sized one every now and then. All of a sudden the tug on the line was much greater than a b-gill, messed around and caught a hold over trout that was released in the fall and survived till now. Got him to my hand and the line broke taking him, and the only fly I tied like that with him....started tying more as soon as I got home....
no pic of the bow, but here is the fly....

Thought I was on the wrong board for a sec...

In case you missed it, my son posted a lengthy report on our recent trip to the Cumberland. If you're looking to wade, email me (gwrom1@gmail.com) and I'll give you some specifics. There's definitely some fish in that river!
