What hooligan said but, and keep in mind that different levels of the water column are just as important.

Did when I lived in VA. Always had good luck with a nymph dropped below a dry fly as a indicator.

Theyíre good people. Plus free beer while you shop. Hard to beat. They do get togethers for local fly fisherman at local breweries every once in a while. I think they have one coming up in a couple of weeks.

First attempt at a gurgler. Definitely needs improvement, but I think I already have down what needs to be fixed. Couple more and I should be good to go.

Iím no pro, but I would shoot for 7-8 wt gear. Sage, TFO, Ross and Reddington make some good entry stuff that wonít break the bank. I have a sage reel with very little use I would sell if you are interested pm me.

TFO rod, Wounded Warrior series 8 weight, dont get caught up in expensive reels, there are some much less expensive. Get a fly tying kit and start tying your own flies. Weight Forward floating line.

Watch youtube on how to cast.

just about anything white. I tie size 6-4 clouser like flies with craft fur that slay them. throw a little flashabou in there and they can't resist them. Also white wooly buggers do really well.

Whatís your budget (rod and reel)?

It would really depend on my. Iím a firm believer in buying the best you can afford because fly fishing isnít something you try and drop. At least for me itís an addiction and Iím constantly upgrading every piece of equipment I have. Itís almost as bad of a money pit as those duck hunting guys

Got 3 of these BW Sport rod cases for 4 piece 9' rods. They carry 2 rods and reels and have side pockets on each side. Used but in good condition. 2 of them are the olive/grey/black as pictured the other one is grey/navy blue/black.

Located in Dallas : Asking $25 each or $60 for all three.
PM me if interested

A couple questions:

Is that the Peak vise? Looks a lot like the Peak vise I have... love my vise... best investment I ever mad in fly fishing.

Had you seen that gurgler pattern somewhere? A hell of a lot more fancy than I have seen for most of my freshwater fishing. How do they swim. the first thing that caught my eye was how big of a loop you have of foam for the body and how it protrude so high up... wondered how they swam. I tend have issues with a foam/hair grasshopper I tie where when the foam sticks that high up into the air, my fly tends to sit on the water upside down. BTW, Bass love gurglers... foam gurglers in my opinion and experience is the "poor man's popper". Easy to tie and cheap and just as effective. What are you targeting with those Gurglers???? Reds?

Those polar minnows look great. I've made some EP fish, but I think I like your pattern here better. Great job

It is a peak. I have nothing to compare it to but so far it's been great!

That gurgler is a "Gangster Gurgler" from 239 Flies. Being new to tying, I figured it would be nice to have some kits with step by steps available to learn on. I ordered a couple different ones and they were great. That was the first gurgler I attempted and it got scrapped. It was messy, I felt the foam "loop" on top was too large and I trimmed to lip too much. The ones I've tied since look much better and seem to float and work how they should. Yes I'm tying these for redfish mainly since that's what I fish for 99% of the time.

The polar fiber minnows look great in the water and are easy to tie. I too like EP baitfish patterns and they won't be replaced. Going to tie some up here this coming week.

I need to take some lessons somewhere.
My goal, every year for the last 10 or so, has been to hit the spring sandbass run with a fly rod.
So far, I have failed at achieving that goal!

Hope it gets better. I'm supposed to be going with a buddy the same weekend as the trout derby, so I can only imagine how crowded it will be there. Either way I'm fishing and not working so it will all be ok!

A friend that is going musky fishing in the spring has asked me to tie him some musky flies. Here is the first 3 out of a dozen. 6/0 hooks and they are really big.

This was in Alaska in 2015. On the Ilnik river which runs parallel and about 500 yards away from the Bering Sea. It was amazing. The last picture is the Bering Sea behind me.

Tried Carl Barton park in Conroe at lunch for stocker trout with no luck. They dumped 1300 trout in the pond 30 minutes before I got there. Only one out there with a fly rod. Tried some pellet patterns but the only ones catching were throwing corn kernels. Any ideas or anyone had luck with stockers?

Throw some small woolly buggers in black or olive with a little flash in the tail. Nymphs under an indicator work well too. I like gold beads on just about everything.

How about more details on that bass Jason. I can see part of the fly in it’s mouth, what type of fly and how did you fish it? I love fly fishing and bass fishing, just never bass fished with a fly rod. Thanks for any pointers.

I was using a small clouser size 10 I think. I was throwing it along the banks and just stripping it back to me. After losing the only two clousers I had it was hard to get a bite.

Here some of my builds from over the years. Iv built many bait casting and spinning rods but only one fly rod. Once my house gets put back together I'll be building more rods.
