Pan Fish Procrastination 

Fresh spring rains have filled the local reservoir and a variety of fish are taking the fly.

While waiting for some essential items to craft a custom handle for the new Dan Craft FT 3wt I hastily mounted (without bonding) a little Jan's Netcraft pre-fabricated cork grip and all nine guides - fuji SIC titanium single foot - very nice very SLICK! I highly recommend them for increasing casting distance and reduced wear on flyline.

have a look...

Fish LOVE number 10 bead head flashback pheasant tails

Another favorite, the diminutive no. 16 Micro Mayfly...

Besides the crappie, I've also been catching yellow perch, large mouth bass, pumkinseed (Lepomis gibbosus) and rainbow trout. I know there are small mouth bass in this lake but have not yet taken one.

Shaping bamboo burl cork handle soon...
