Fishing Reports / Re: Fishing in central kentucky
« Last post by breamchaser on Today at 12:30:34 PM »
Flyfish, you are very welcome, my friend. It took me a while to find out who was in that P/U truck I would see at Clear Fork Lake, but sure am glad I did. I enjoyed many evening fishing with you and Carmoletta and the fly tying lessons as well. Still tie a few Shoe Bugs now and then and they still catch fish. I have gotten Marilyn set up with a U/L spinning rod and casting bubbles, now she will be able to ''fly fish'' also. Y'all take care, John. :smile:

John, you can't give me credit for that.  I think you were already headed in that direction on your own.  I can still hear you hollering from the hill "Who's that flyfishing in my lake?"  Scared the heck outta me.  All I could see were your uniform.....and gun!  Boy, I thought I was in some big trouble.  I can't thank you enough for your friendship and becoming a fishing partner.

Lee, I use a 2 or 3 wt. rod for the exact reason you showed in your pics. Folks can rave about trout and other fish on heavier weight rods, but for me 2/3 wt. is the way to go. My good friend Flyfish is the one who got me into UL fly fishing and I thanks him every time I go out and catch 'gills on a 2/3 wt. they are about as much fun as a person can have with his/her clothes on. I enjoy UL fly fishing and I don't think I'll ever go back to 8/9 wt. rods, if I want to target larger bass I'll use my 4 or 5 wt. rods. Enjoy the bass and gills. Take care, John. :smile:
John,I got my line on the 2wt and finally got to take it to a local pond and i had a blast.To feel those little fish fighting like they did was awesome.This will quickly become my favorite rod to fish with. :smile:

Rick, I wish I could have shipped you some of our rain last night. Rain guage says 3.6'' wife and I went to sleep with sound of rain and thunder off in the distance. I'll try to see if I can get the weather folks here to ship you some rain. Take care, John. :smile:
