I dont know what to call this fly. It is made up of size 2 hook, EMU feather and bucktail. Any suggestion? Generally, I think it is a wooly bugger look alike. First time using a EMU feather which I got it from Canada through the post. Pretty nice feathers, really.
Broke that zero early. First fish of the day. Before this, I hooked up a golden snapper, a big one but lost it to the wooden poles. 14lbs fireline still cant stop that fellow from freedom dash. On the whole, fishing is good today. I hooked up two and Uncle Roger got one all on one rod. Check out his big bright smile!!! I bet we would be back again. The down side of the day, I lost three big golden snappers. THREE!!! Two burst off. The second one was even faster than the first. The third one was lost while trying to land it. It is about the length of my arm. I fought hard and managed to pull it away from snags several times but fate takes it from me. Nevermind, I will be back to fight again, soon. Fishing is always so fun!!! ;P
20050205, I went fishing with my wife and her relatives. Target? Whitings. It was not very productive as only managed to hook up these. What were the bonuses of the day? Countless fork tail catfish were landed and released. These whitings are great for eating and heard that the oil from this fish is particularly good for our bodies. Perhaps, we should have started earlier rather than 3pm. Hopefully we would the next round.
Life's been hard for me lately as I am not able to find some time to fish. I think I am talking nonsense... hahaha. While I was free, I whipped up this little shrimp like thing and just cant wait to find time to test it in the salt. If not, I think I will be whipping a few more colors of it... sadz...
