    Sorry about that mess up there. Sometimes my paws don't work right. I tried to straighten it but was too late.

    WOW! That looks great and I am sure this will be help full to a lot of us on the site. I am mainly a fly fisherman and may be able to help if anyone has question on that subject. I spend a good bit of time in Girard area guiding and fishing for steelhead so thanks for that info also.

    For trout,I use salted minnows and rooster tail spinners. For crappies,I use minnows,jigs with plastic or malibo with slab sauce. For walleye,I tie my own wormharnesses. Use nightcrawlers on those and I use plugs.Name:  20200325_194818.jpg

    Wow, what an impressive collection a lot of you guys have. With wade fishing, I have severely down sized and have everything in a pretty light weighing vest. My favorite is trout and crappie magnets, with Bison as my number one go to. I primarily use 1/64 to 1/32 jigs. I would love to get back into fly fishing, but right now I Have manageable carpal in both wrists and am trying real hard to avoid surgery. I use wrist braces at night and can get thru the day and spin fishing without them.
    A good thread to keep up the interest - today is a very nice one here in the SE, and I’m planning a scouting trip today. The water may be too cloudy, but I’m looking for the tell tale minnows.

    This is basically the same baits and bobbers I use to fish all panfish.
    Some of my hand ties.

    I have carpal tunnel in my right hand also. I hand PT on it and it did not help and was scheduled to have a operation but it is on hold till mid to late May. Everyone I know says the operation is not bad and well worth it. However fly fishing is a way of life for me and mine does not seem all that bad. I also had fly fishers elbow. First recorded case in America. Since I do not play tennis they officially called it fly fishing elbow.
    For those who want to fly fish and are newbies I will give a few sugestions:
    Early in the year use dark colored flys. Many early spring hatches are black,dark brown and olive in color.
    Hatches such as Dark Hendricksons,Grannom Caddis and Blue Wing Olives are common on many waters.
    Also some streamers in white and silver can imitate many flashy minnows. Do not forget to have some wollybuggers.I like black the best but other colors work well also.

    Thanks for all the post as it helps pass some down time.

    Chaunc, those are some nice ties. Also like the ones in the attachment.

    Addictangler, the advice for assuming trout, should also translate, to other species as well. So thanks for the advice.

    I think that is true S 10. I love to catch crappie on my fly rod. Many lakes have Mayfly ,Caddis and even some stone fly hatches. At time many panfish including crappie will feed on the surface. Especially when crappie are near the surface during early spring spawn time. Catching a 12 inch crappie on a 5 weight fly rod is not only a lot of fun but very tasty also.
