FOUR IS THE NEW FIVE

Monday, 27 March 2017

If I had to pick my favourite Sexyloops rod it would be the HT4. This is my"go-to" trout rod, dry fly rod, grayling with ultra-fine tippet, stillwater buzzers at distance, stumping Giant Gourami, weighted streamers, and a whole lot more besides... it's the rod I pick up just about any time there's fishing to be done! But it wasn't intended that way, it was originally designed simply for river fishing in the Balkans where a 6WT feels overgunned for fishing size 16 flies and smaller, particularly with the .10 tippets (7X) that are necessary there.

Now I know you're probably thinking you need a new rod, and I would agree with you - this is it!

Gluttony in the 'Glades

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

After numerous challenging trips where I saw plenty of fish but caught few or none(!), this last weekend I got more than my money’s worth. Things are changing, as they always do, some for the better, others for the worse, but it seems nature takes a lot of it in stride.

Yesterday as I launched my canoe in the predawn light I noticed something strange on the surface of the water. I was scared it was some new type of floating algae as blooms have been a recent problem throughout south Florida. When I trained my flashlight onto the mass I found it to be aggregated plaques of emerging mosquitoes and shucks. Well, at least there was no doubt that this day was going to be different from the last few trips.

Teaching Distance Fly Casting

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

One of the main keys to be successful in teaching fly casting is to find the (often small) causes for all the trouble in the student's casts. Once you've indentified them most students can eliminate them within minutes (often seconds).

Take Note

Thursday, 23 March 2017

After every day’s flat’s fishing Tracy and I take a few minutes in the evening to write up some notes about the day. These prove to be invaluable when deciding when it’s best to return to any given area e.g. the state of the tide, the position of the sun (vital for visibility), the wind strength and direction, the type of ground (will we need flies with weed guards etc.) and lots of other general comments. We’ve recently been reviewing our notes from last year in preparation for a return trip that’s coming up soon.

sexyloops fly tying focus - caddis feet

Friday, 24 March 2017

Legs …. a prime trigger for fish accepting a nymph when looking at a fly from a distance checking for «triggers» in the silhouette. I believe fish do the same. Tiny details which set an edible item apart from a piece of debris floating in the water column. A big part of this is the correct presentation of the fly, the appropriate size, shape and very very important ..... LEGS

Shank Alternatives

Sunday, 26 March 2017

A quick and simple fly tying related idea for today.

Shank flies and stinger hook flies like the string leech and Intruder have been very popular among steelhead anglers for a number of years. For good reason, too. The advantages of having a replaceable, short shanked, ultra-sharp hook off the very back end of a very long, wiggly fly are many – more hookups, better hookups, better land ratio, fewer flies ruined when your hook inevitably hits the stones. So, it didn’t take long for trout anglers and others to grab onto the ideas and begin incorporating them into their patterns.

Ronan's Report

“I Put on Wet Socks in the Morning”

I wanted to chat briefly about the Damselfly nymph and how most anglers standard pattern makes no sense to me. I had some great photo’s of a damsel nymph which was still alive inside a trout I took from Lake Dunstan recently, but I deleted them by mistake!! I put the green nymph in a […]
