Tie some big flies.

Saw Sedotti tie a monster fly today at Marlboro and thought it would be a good time to whip some up. All my previous big stuff was tied with feathers but alwasy liked the look of the big synthetics or yak etc... After a first attempt I think I like .

Doogue,

Good to hear from you. We should actually get out and fish some this year. Put me down as a tentative for the big fly swap. Next few weekends are booked up with vacations and family obligations but I will see what I can do.

John,

"Today" was Saturday. No idea today (Sunday) but I can't imagine many showed up who weren't staying the night in the hotel.

Sean,

I agree: we need to hit the water this year. Now that my in-laws have a place on the water in Portsmouth, NH I tend to stay North when fishing. However, I applied to school this year and if I get in then I will ditch work and head back for some learning.

If that happens then I will take a week or two off and do some exotic fishing at the end of August. Maybe I can entice you to join me.

I look forward to it.

Mike

Ahh,

The internet brings 2 brothers together.

I would be fishing the south side of the Cape for bonito and albies.

If you have a few extra days off then we should chat.

Bro'

That can be arranged I believe.

Due to my absurdly long length of service with my employer I've come in to some extra vacation time this year.

Sean. Nice work! Shad fly please!!!!!! 15 inches would do it. I'll buy all of them.
We'll be having a Cow Clave as soon as they start to show here in Mystic. You know the place so tie a bunch and come on back!

Phil

Translucent

Hi Phil,

Still need to do some experimenting with it. I really like the way it looks in the vice but after a dip test I am not sure if it is too translucent. I am also maxing out at about 13" with the current material I have. I will bring the flies and you supply the parking. I will be on a material search until then to get it right. They are surprisingly easy to tie just time consuming.

Sean

Parking? No problem Mon! We'll have cocktails at the MIAC after fishing. Everyone goes home with a digital print of their personal best striper. 13" shad flies should be fine. Nice thing about Yak hair is the cast. Dries out on the snap of a good backcast. I've tried a few Alwive patterns but no go. These mothers (and fathers) are keyed in on the naturals. If only we could make a fly jump. That would drive them absolutely crazy. Hummmmmm. Kites with quick release pins?

Phil

Sean,
Very nice flies. My friend Kevin is working on something new and secret that he has me trying to guess what it is??? He ties some of the nicest huge flies I have ever seen and they catch fish like no tomorrow. I posted a pic of one of his flies last year and they are very large 15"+. He uses alot of kinky fibre and you can get some very long flies using this material. I think hooking one of the really large bass on one of these is going to take a team effort as I agree they are usually keyed on the real thing. I have discussed this with Kevin and he and I are convinced that if we are both together and do a bait and switch on one of these fish after getting them all fired up that it would be very possible to get them to inhale one of our large fly offerings. Going to have to give it a whirl this coming season will report back with results when we have them. Keep up the good work as you are on to something and those flies look very good. By the way Sedotti really took a beating over on the other board didn't he? What was your take on his presentation? I have some inside info on Mark and would be interested to hear your feeling son that whole topic. PM if you do not want to discuss publically. 2 Months to go guy's and I am chomping at the biut to get back out there, I have an interview today (Sunday) go figure but I don't care if I can get a job I will interview on Christmas morning.

Mike M.

Thumbs up

I haven't read the thread but Mark Sedotti is as dedicated a student of the art of casting and an over-acheiver in that regard. He has put the time into understanding the design of flies such that the two combined achieve amazing results. After many years of being in a booth I was loose at the show this year and really got to take in his presentation and chat a bit with him. I am very impressed with the guy, it's good to have guys like that to open our eyes and our minds in the local FF scene.
