    I landed my largest 3 trout ever on fly...

    33" 7.5LB 1 day before STAR 2005 Tournament
    31" 7.2LB 1 day before STAR 2006 Tournament
    30" 6.8LB 1 day ebfore STAR 2007 Tournament

    My canal heats up the night before the tournament begins!!


    That's no joke either... This year was the 1st year I didn't get a trout before the tournament started...

    BeachBum & Blackbeard will back me up on those trout... I just wish I could find 1 picture besides a shot of the tail laying on 33"...

    Anytime anyone wants to go target some reds on fly this coming spring let me know...I'll have the boat rigged for flats fishing by then (hopefully)

    I might have to take you up on that offer. I'm pretty bad at casting so I might just be manning the pole lol. I also want to try it from my kayak, I went way back into the state park a few times this summer and found a couple of schools of reds with their backs out of the water. They wouldn't hit topwaters or spoons but I'm sure they would've ate a fly.

    I'll take you up on that offer. I have a 8wt that I bought for Belize and haven't used it since. Everytime I go its always something...too windy, they're biting on tops, ect, ect, ect....I guess I just need to leave the baitcaster at home one time.

    I do know how to cast some, but mostly light stuff in the 3wt range. When fishing Colorado it doesn't take much. Give me a shout when you get ready, we can take my rig also, but I better start practicing on the poling option I installed. The front deck is wide open since I removed the trolling motor. The front of the shallowsport will give you plenty of room.

    I have a 5WT & 6WT I use for Colorado... I've bought an 8WT that I use in the bays and an 11WT I use off-shore the 11WT is my baby though

    I bought the 8WT combo package at Bass Pro the Gold Cup IV great reel and rod I can easily cast 40-60' with good accuracy.

    Its reasonably priced to and a great all around setup.

    I use to go out to SLP and flyfish the guts. I would just stand in one spot and fish the current like you would a river...

    Whats your favorite fly...spoon, clouser, popper, shrimp or crab pattern?

    I bought mine from Marburgers, it's a Reddington. Came with hardcase and all. Combo package and got it for a good price. I'm just not ready to step up dollar wise yet, although they tell me once I hookup and catch something big on a fly, I'll be hooked. Of course, you already know that I guess.

    I've caught more fish that I care to count on a blue/green pattern Gummy Minnow... The trout love it under the lights at night and its motion mimics a nice wounded fingerling mullet... This time of year is so fun with the fly rod... We'll have to take an excursion out to the Jetties and bring only fly rods...
