I decided to try my hand at fly tying and this is what I came up
with for my first product. It is supposed to be a Dark Cahill Dry Fly.
I think maybe I didn't do so bad for my first attempt, but I guess
the real test will come when I try it out for the first time. I'll
keep you posted. This was kind of fun so I think I will try some
more. I'll try to tie a new one each week, at least for a while,
and we'll see if I get any good at it.
Finally! Here we are at our favorite spot again and this time we
actually caught some fish. It was only a few suckers but it sure
beats the boredom of not getting any btes at all. We started kind
of late so it was getting dark and cold before we could catch too
many. Just as we were leaving though, there were some guys on the
other side of the river catching bullheads. It seems every time I
come here at night someone is here and the bullheads are biting.
The water is finally warming up and just in time. Next weekend is
the opening of trout and walleye season. I hope to spend some time
fishing for both and with any luck I'll have some good pictures to
post next week.
Be sure to check out your 2000 Michigan fishing guide. There have
been some significant changes to trout and salmon fishing regulations
on inland waterways. As a result of these changes, there is an
additional publication available. It is called "Inland Trout and
Salmon Guide 2000," and includes color coded maps that will allow you
to find regulations pertaining to a specific lake or stream by finding
it on the map.
