Went to the quarry yesterday and the fishing was dead at first. I did manage to catch a couple nice bass on the longrod by sight fishing the shallows on the north end with a streamer, but after the...

The poppers were both similar colors, frog patterns. I don't think it was the color. I don't have to work tomorrow so I'll head down there and hope that this torrential rain didn't turn the fish off....

Today I didn't make it to the quarry but I went to the river chasing some smallies. I managed to catch three on conventional tackle along with a walleye, but I also got some action on streamers and...

Use large loud poppers colored in yellow, chartreuse, orange, or any other bright color. Also if you're going to use streamers, use ones with large heads and bright colors, the harder they pull, the...

Right now I'm using a 9 foot leader and it's pretty heavy all the way down. Maybe I'll add a foot of lighter tippet and two feet of heavier butt end. The leader already feels "sloppy" in that the fly...

I'm by no means an expert but I think that if they're past about 7 feet, you're going to need a sinking or at least a sink tip line to get streamers down to them. If you use floating line you would...

Today I went to my carp quarry in hopes of my first fly rod carp. The first one I seen I plopped the crayfish immitation (poorly tied at that) and bang, first carp. He was only about 15 inches long,...

I hit a local quarry (my honey hole) yesterday and did VERY well on bass, I caught probably 25 in the time I was there. I didn't use the fly rod due to the wind (I don't have the skill) but it was...

From what I've observed of brookies here in Iowa, they are carnivores so don't rule out a streamer. They have a large jaw in comparison to other trout so I usually seem to catch them on larger flies...

This weekend I'm headed home for an interview so I'll try out the 9WT sinking line with it to see if it makes any difference. Hopefully the 9wt floating just isn't loading the rod enough, then I'll...

The line is Cortland Olympic, I looked it up and could only find it on clearance sales for 10-20$. It has a fairly textured coating and I'm not sure if that is the culprit. The lind on my 6wt is the...

I've checked things out before and the line on the 9wt is a wf taper. It just doesn't seem to load the rod, which is an 8/9wt. The rod is a YAD rod, not sure on the specific model (don't have it next...

First off I'd like to say I'm not a very experianced caster by any standards, but I can cast my trusty 6wt fairly well, even with heavier flies. But, I can't seem to get my new 9wt to cast very well...
