angler who has thrown a fly line knows the joy of a controlled loop and a fly
that lays out in that right spot.
More about Leaders
I recieved the leader you sent me for
bass. It work's great!! Turns over very nice and is surprisingly strong. For
the fishing I do on my local waters,which this time of year is covered with
coon tail and moss, I have no problem landing very nice bass right through it
with 6 or 10lb tippet. There is just no comparison to mono leaders. The leaders
you make are in a class all their own. The loop on the end makes it quick and
easy to change tippets. I have stopped using mono leaders and use only your
furled leaders for all my fishing, bass, trout, bluegill, catfish or stripers.
There have been days trout fishing when I would use two mono leaders just from
changing flies, adding tippet and repairing breakoffs. I can take one of your
furled leaders, add more tippet when needed, and fish it for many, many trips.
It is more cost effective for me to use furled leaders. Keep up the good work.

|Bluegill Fishing with Flies
|Start off with this little exercise if
you would. Close your eyes and imagine a pond with willows overhanging the
water. Trees have grown old and fallen in. One end has cattails and shallows.
Dark, shadowy reaches beneath old growth stretch back away from the main body
of the pond. Now, imagine approaching this pond early in the morning with a
popper or dry fly tied onto your leader. What kind of bluegill fishing might be
conjured to mind?
Now put yourself out on that pond later in the day,
sitting in a float tube with a sinking line and a nymph or wet fly pattern on
the business end. Again, conjure up some great bluegill fishing.
weight rod would be way too much for
the popper/dry fly fishing. More like a three
weight. The sinking line fishing might be another story, might need to go four
or five, opinions vary, whatever works best for the angler doing the fishing.
are born honest, but they get over it"
We invite you to make your way to the nearest pond in your area. Or
perhaps a creek that flows through the neighborhood. There is so much quality
angling that lurks near the average angler's home that they might be driving
near to, or over, on the way to work every day.
Here in Collin County
TX there are innumerable creeks draining the area and finally making their way
to the local reservoirs. I have been privileged to have fished a number of
these creeks. A bluegill or a yearling black bass on a three weight is quite
the thrill. All the while cars roar overhead down North Central
