Finally completed the new version of iFishNews... this one collates various fishing related information into one page for ease of access. Can add/remove items as the Seasons changes and expand to other areas of fishing as well as not just North Texas. Still have more work to do, but this is a good starting point... do check it out iFishNews.com.
PS: The old monthly editions are archived and still available, too!

Another fun time fishing local ponds with the 9'-5wt flyrod and OPST Commando Head. This round called for more Over The Shoulder Casting which was not an issue with the shooting head. Here is a demo of how we cast over the shoulder... Over The Shoulder Cast.

While on the way home from the day job, had the fishing bug strike. Luckily we keep a Micro Fly Rod in our backpack at the ready for these instances.Video shows the Micro Fly Rod variant that we made that collapses and has larger rod guides than the original ones that came from the manufacturer. Micro Fly Rod casts 30' without an issue; only need to adjust the timing of the forward and backcast and we tend to use a sidecast more often than not. Quick Trip with the Micro Fly Rod!

That micro rod is a really neat setup. What is the largest fish you have caught with it?

I am sure it has its application. As many discrepancies as I have had with telescoping rods, it may not be my “cup of tea...”. LOL

On the version that telescopes, have caught 14" Bass. On another version - two piece rod, caught this Catfish with it.
