    Crappie report - video

The bite was on the slow side this day and the wind was real strong @ around 20 mph, they were calling for 7 mph winds :-/...

    A fly becomes a spinner

    Been thinking about making some 1/16 oz spinners but wanted to come up with something different. This fly is tied using a #4 Octopus hook. The whole spinner ends up weighing 1/8 oz +/- a little. Haven't been tested but I will report on how well it works.

    New Winged Grass Hopper

    Been working with a lot of chain eye flies lately and setting at the vise yesterday I got to playing around with a grass hopper fly I been working with this spring. Just never was satisfied on how it was looking with each change I made on. Think I have the fly like I want it.

I received a phone call from a friend that said the hybrids and striper were starting to run up the rivers. Made a few calls to find out what the water color was and it turned out to be...

    Been playing around with this jigs for a month or so and thought y'all may find it interesting. Have not used it yet but will when the crappie start moving closer to the spawning grounds.

    I seen a fly tied like this somewhere, can't remember where but it was tied with smaller material making it close to the hook. When I tied these I wanted a little bigger profile. I have caught crappie and bream working the fly on the bottom. This is a size 12 barbless hook with red hourglass...
