    Default playing around with wire

    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....

    You know how your eyes will sometimes fill in the blanks that aren't there?? When I saw this thread my mind read ".......wife."

    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!
