This last weekend my son, John Ryan, and I were working the RSFF Booth at Orvis Days in Baton Rouge. We were privileged to meet Bob Boese as he was tying some 2 minute foam bass bugs. Bob introduced us to this site and I'm glad we have found it. Our conversation turned to a "popper and a dropper" which I had tried, half heartedly, on a couple of occasions. Yesterday evening I decided to fish some deeper waters - from my kayak - and STICK with the program. The results were amazing. I caught numerous large bream and about a 11" or 12" bass. Unfortunately, I did have a much larger fish that got off in the grass. I'm not sure how big it was - but it sure gave me a tussle on the 6 weight I was using.
So hats off to Bob for the Popper and Ray for the Black Boudreaux........ a winning combination. Only 7.5 hours until the yak is headed for the local pond again!
Bob - if you read this - please PM me. I'm interested in tying some Indestructible Shrimp for the next RSFF Fly Tying Meeting.
Welcome aboard. You will be told that you need to bring the donuts.
Hi, valvguy1. Welcome to the forum.
Welcome to the best Fly Fishing site on the net.
Indestructible Shrimp sounds good, any one know how to tie on with pics?
Think I might have found it.
Lets see if this works.
