Another quick trip to Duck Creek before starting the day job. Sunfish were biting on a size 8 foam grasshopper. Caught several in short order, then the bite stopped unexpectedly. No worries... good reason to stop and head to work!

More Quick Trips Fly Fishing for Sunfish #duckcreek Lotta fun catching these Sunfish on the MaxCatch Fly Rod and Orvis Hydros Reel. 2wt makes for a fun fight of these feisty fish! Tried the size 8 Foam Grasshopper and caught several. Upsized to the size 4 and had some strike but only managed one on the larger pattern. Great way to start a TGIF and roll into the Memorial Day Weekend!

Tough round this go... a little Bass and a Bluegill after spending most of the time trying to get Bass protecting their bed to strike. Had one strike but missed it; else, the Bass were definitely wary!

Bass Fly Fishing with the Discount Switch Rod #foamgrasshopper

Stopped at Crowley Park in Richardson on the commute. Fished the 2wt Discount Switch Rod and a Foam Grasshopper to catch a Bass or two!

Lotta fun... Bass tended to strike when the hopper was sitting still. Slow stop and go was the key!

Fum stuff!

More Duck Creek Fly Fishing for Sunfish #maxcatch

Another stop on the commute this morning. Back to Duck Creek with the Foam Grasshopper Beavertail variant. Saw several Bass but no takers. Luckily, the Sunfish were active! One was a nice sized one that put a bend in the Discount Switch Rod!

Pond Fly Fishing - Tough Round #maxcatch Another round of pond fishing at the local pond. Had a Bass take a Foam Grasshopper, then spent most of the time working Bluegill on their nest. Had a few missed strikes while trying a number of fishing flies.

Did have several little Bass show interest as well as little Sunfish readily taking a Foam Grasshopper by the Waterfall. That said, cannot catch them all... that's fishing!

Foam Spider and Scud Tandem Rig for Bluegill #flyfishing Finally found the pattern for the tight lipped Bluegill at the local pond. Went with a tandem rigged foam spider and scud! Most fish went for the trailing scud and was surprised the little bass were readily striking the scud!

Foam Spider was a diy pattern made from Wapsi's Foam Spider Kit. The Scud was a old pattern learned from a library fly tying video... uses possum or hares ear dubbing tied on a size 16 hook with a dubbing loop.

Liking this tandem rig... plan to use it on the commute to work on a couple of ponds!

Fun stuff!
