Some you win…

Fished for Pike all day, cast maybe a thousand times, caught nothing. It rained on and off and was cold and windy.

At the end of the day the felt sole was sucked off my orvis boots by a bog.

 

 

…and some you lose!

    thats why its called fishing mate ,thats the way it goes.

    got some epoxy today and put some eyes on a few of my flys ,one thing for sure it was harder than i thought and now know i need to get a little turner for applying the epoxy next time as it would be so much easier.

  • I have two red welts on my finger as well from stripping line!

    I burnt my finger from stripping line too fast the other day aswell, awkward to say the least!

    Fished for trout on Kelvin.At one point cast 5 times caught 4 fish.You guys keep pike fishing and leave the 1 pounders + to us.Seriously though some cracking trout and salmon in the Kelvin just now.

  • Hey Peter – What did you get them on? Were the trout taking flies from the surface?

    I was using ginked up spider patterns size 12 & 14`s fished just in and out of the surface and no more.Ferocious takes, I played one of 1lb+ for agood 10 minutes (I only had a 2lb point). Wading was a bit scary though-high water & fast current.
