    Default Think it'll catch?

    Disappointed that I forgot to use my green thread. But I was eager to tie one tonight.

    Of course.

    But save it for something other than winter yellow perch.

    I tossed a similarly colored Clouser Minnow for quite a while today. I used an intermediate line and had the fly in the strike zone. I used a very slow retrieve to keep the fly down. I subtly twitched it. It wasn't until I switched to spinning rod with a jig and Mister Twister and used a creeping retrieve that I got a bite.

    Some days the fish simply will not honor our efforts to create the perfect fly!

    Good luck with yours. It will definitely work but maybe not precisely when you want it to work.

    Those are excellent deceivers, I couldn't disagree more.... Keep watching YouTube and searching Google of that is the outcome.

    All I ever get from watching YouTube videos is a sticky phone and an overwhelming sense of shame and self loathing.

    Knocked out two more clouser minnows. One is supposed to be a bull minnow and the other I hope is obvious.

    Those look good.

    Check this out. I tied my first crease fly last night.

    I found a material to use instead of epoxy when you use soft fly bodies. It is the same stuff that I use on the front of my Shannon's minnows. It is cheap, you get a lot of it for the price, and it dries clear and has some flexibility.
