My 2018 on the fly

Thread starter #1
It was another Great year of fly fishing with plenty of variety. I caught striper, hybrid, white bass, shoal bass, spotted bass, largemouth bass, crappy, bream, shell cracker, channel catfish, common carp, rainbow trout, brown trout, and brook trout all on the fly. My largest striper of the year was a 16 pound river striper. I also had a striper double on the fly as I landed one in my kayak and pitched the fly back over the side of the kayak and had another hit the fly immediately and almost pull my rod in. I landed the second with the first still in the net. I also have kept a running streak alive with a striper on the fly each month for 4 consecutive years.
Here are some pics from the year.

Awesome! That sunset pic in the second mosaic is a good one!

Speaking as a strictly amateur fly fisherman, some of those streamers give new meaning to give 'em meat and make 'em eat! Very cool!

Good job GP, those mid-week days off are sure good for fishing!

If you want to see how GP ties those big ole meaty flies, you will find him on Tier's Row at the coming Fly Fishing Show in Duluth on Feb 1 and 2. Congrats Todd!

Thanks Mark!
And for those interested in seeing how those Eflyz are made Mark will be at the table beside me demonstrating his process. I’m really looking forward to this upcoming show and seeing everybody. It’s going to be loads of fun!
