Some more trouts... ...on dry


Bronzed-golden block

Had about two hours free so I decided to go fishing, on the road I saw a pond and so I naturally stoped to see what I could do there. There were lots of carps swimming in; I grasped my 7 weight fly rod and a green algo looking fly. In this warm day carps were feeding in the weeds in shallow waters, easy to spot. When a carp first came around the place my imitation was I thought it was on. Yes it was but the too early strike made it go away. I caught one 5-6 lbs I'd say and missed three others time window, it was definitely worth it cause now carp is on my bucket list, but this will not be the last bronzed-golden !

Only picture cause others aren't good enough, but be sure there will be some soon

Fly fishing for squid - flies

Here are two models I'm going to use for chasing squids on the fly, soon.
Eyes come from Deer Creek, they are fixed with Deer Creek diamond fine & flex UV resin.

A marabout fly under UV light, fully fluorescent!
