    Default The mighty ant..

    Whenever using spinning gear, I use micro swivels about 2-3 foot above lures to prevent line twist. In clear water I noticed gills chasing those tiny swivels which look a lot like a tiny ant. So, today I tried some tiny black ant flies and wasn't surprised when they hit them hard. Also, this lake has lots of downed wood along the banks and lots of ants.
    But, before I left, just had to tie on a little popper to grab a few on top! One of those days when it's hard to leave.Name:  DSC00684.jpg

    Good looking fly rod and the fish looked fun as well. I have a fly rod but I sure don’t have the patience for it. I will say those poppers sure are fun!

    Geez, MR. Really nice catches! I committed to the TSS U/L this morning, BUT tonight the 3 wgt reel comes out for a check and for sure next trip out is the fly rod for poppers and small wets. Creek levels are at July/august lows and I think the popper will kill them! Thanks for the ride along.

    All nice fish, and being observant, while fishing, can help in deciding what to use.

    Some real nice fish and a fun time getting them. I’m going exploring in the morning, but I first have to shoot a few fish in the barrel. Wish me luck.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Ironically, we used to call those little black swivels "Black Ants".
