Been awhile since I posted a report.

My first Buf on fly.


Second


Third and Largest


All caught Friday at LLELA on a large Pheasant Tail tied on a size 10 jig head (1/128). 5 weight rod and 4 pound tippet. I got to see backing for the first time on the last one. Took 30 minutes to bring her in.

Good day.

I tend to over think fishing. Please help me.
When I am over complicating something please kick me in the face. Hard.

Good stuff David. Llela produces some good chances at buffs and carp on the fly.


Bowfishing sucks

Well, I landed 3 out of 3 Buffalo and I did not notice any problem, so it did great. It gets bonus points since I was using 4 pound tipit.

I'd use it. Many of us use vintage glass rods. Do you know what weight rod it is?

I've been chasing carp on Lake Benbrook for the past 3 months and still can't get one to take anything. I've never hooked up a carp with a fly rod (all I use/own), but can't wait. Your catch is very inspiring. Thanks.

I love catching carp and bufs on fly (two different species, above are buffalo). This is the first year for me to have success with them.
