Good gosh do you guys have every bug on earth on your bench?  what do you do for a musky that likes baby ducks?  spent the last few days mowing, painting porches, mowing, doing yard work, mowing, splitting wood, mowed some more, burnt some brush piles, and maybe I mowed some more?  tomorrow is DR Appt  then entertaining the wife at the mall. All fingers are crossed that Thurs I'll be on the water  really need some me time

Itís a diseaseÖÖaddictionÖÖ.obsessionÖ.whatever you want to call it. To me itís much like woodworking. The mind gets to wander and every so often something unique or useful is created.

But best of all is the peace of focusing on something thatís all your own.

And the bonus is you get to go fly fishing. WinÖ.win!
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Yup. Itís one of the reasons I like working at the golf course. I get to socialize and keep my mind thinking. Good stuff for an old fart like me.

Hey Now!
I am planning on fishing a small adirondack trout lake the following weekend?
(Siamese pond wilderness area)
Any recommendations on any particular flies to use?


Thanks in advance,

Jeremy

Iím not much of a trout fisher but Iíd think some of the traditional streamer patterns would be my first choices.
Mickey Finns  would certainly be in my box and maybe some dace patterns.

Bumping up the thread.  I've had some good luck on these lately walking some RI beaches as the sand eels are in town.  The stripers won't touch anything too big or with flash so keeping the colors simple and they are gobbling these up.

I tie some similar for Crappie.


I like the UV heads . I think they pick up some light.

Gotta love those thunder creeks. Seems like itís a long forgotten trout fly that still is one of my most productive streamers.

Hard to find commercially nowadays so I attempt to tie my own. Seems like I tie too far forward and it makes the hair splay out. Then itís the task of finding deer hair long enough to use

Nah. Iíve collected a few bucktails over the years in different colors. I donít do any dyeing.


Only thing with them is some of them  tend to smell pretty bad.

Just sitting on my deck. This dandy landed next to my foot. No idea what it is but would be interesting to see if I could tie his replica. Check out that tail.
