    I agree, drift/presentation is probably "THE" most important factor of all. But trying to pidgeon-hole an attribute of feeding among trout is like trying to get water to only go through one hole in a...

    The Jersey Damsel is a local pattern of mine that truly performs around small bass and bluegill waters. Tied to use on a dropper behind a bassbug, it has become an excellent stand-alone...

    I tie some micro-caddis and midge patterns with mallard as the down-wing. I have also used it for spinner wings.

    I will add one more thing. Each pack of biot is different. I used to wonder the same about pheasant tail fibers. How did folks wrap such large and full flies with them? They weren't that big? Until I...

    Cabelas Three Forks rod

    I seldom do this, but I have to give a much deserved "shout-out" to Cabelas for their Three Forks rods. I recently started looking for a cheaper 4-piece light bass rod for some of the mud jungles I...
