Winds were 15+ mph all day, so I headed out to the park. I kept the wind at my back and used a roll cast with my fly rod. I caught several small bluegills and two bass. Most of the gills were caught near the library. All were caught on a small white popper with my 6wt rod.
Got bored watching football, so I tied some more flies. They were all a wooly bugger pattern. Used a #6 hook for the small orange/brown bugger and a 1/0 hook with a feather tail for the larger orange/brown bugger. I read somewhere that carp like this pattern.
The black flies are the same pattern with feather tails and metal eyes using #6 and 1/0 hooks. The black buggers normally catch anything.
I tied around 25 flies while watching the two football games this weekend.
I tied a few panfish flies today. Most used the small barbell eyes I picked up at bass pro. The hooks are #12 and most of them have legs. They should sink with the hook up and I should be able to slowly move them across the bottom once they sink. I saw the pattern online somewhere, but don’t remember what the name was.
