so, i've been getting ready, and tying some flies. from what i've read about the water i'll be fishing, there are carp, spotted bass, hybrid bass, white bass, buffalo carp, river carp suckers, blue suckers, redhorse suckers, largemouth bass, bluegills, white crappie, gar, blue catfish, channel catfish, and it will even be recently stocked with rainbow trout. c'mon, i'd better catch something, even if the water temperatures will be low!
seems like threadfin shad is the primary baitfish, so here is an example of what i've been tying:
|Not So Sexy Shad|
the fly tying instructions i have been using as a general guideline can be found here.
comments, criticisms, suggestions, questions....all are welcome.
