Jon Boat Fishing | Easy Catfishing at the Local Lake

Still breaking in the new Suzuki 2.5hp Outboard but finally got to go fishing, too! Started out catch bait - Shad, at the boat ramp. Then, ran to a few submerged trees for a chance at Crappie. No luck on the Crappie, so opted to run the motor a little before deciding to anchor in a spot that was out of the wind and fish for whatever was biting. Was a fun time catching dinner at the local lake! May need to make some adjustments so I can fly fish from the jon boat!

Easy bluegill fishing fly | Foam Rectangle Fly?

Pond fishing with the 4wt Fly Rod and Reel! Wanted to try a simple fishing fly that did not require lots of material!

Took a rectangle cutout of 2mm closed cell foam and tied it on to a size 12 hook. Added legs... then fished it to a bed of Bluegill.

It works!

Back out yesterday fishing the simple foam fly... went simpler, caught more, but lost the fly. Put on a Foam Grasshopper had fun catching fish! Still working the video but this one was fun on the 2wt fiberglass rod!

Get Started Fly Fishing | Try an Easier Simple Foam Fly Pattern!

The other day I tied a variant of a Foam Grasshopper Pattern that used a rectangle shaped foam pattern to make a two segment body. It worked well on Bluegill and a Bass, too!

Taking it one step simpler, shortened the rectangle so I could tie the pattern with only one body segment. The end result, more Bluegill and Bass!

Unfortunately, I lost the fishing fly. No worries though; had a Foam Grasshopper in Size 14 at the ready and was able to keep fishing.

Caught a number of Bluegill and Bass including some nice ones! Looks like simple works!

Check out the video!
