I’ve been keeping busy at the vise the past few weeks. With the weather warming up some of my friends are getting those fishy feelings, and realizing they need to restock their boxes.
I’ve been keeping busy tying up marabou and bucktail jigs. All different sizes. These are great on any body of water with a spinning rod. Here are some white ones that are sure to fool some river smallies, and possibly some Lake Michigan coho, and perch.
…and per usual. I’ve been tying up what I think I do best. My big bass, pike, and musky flies. As the temperature warms up, I’ve got a few friends that are gearing up to fish the DPR for pike once they’re done with the spawn. These are proven patterns and colors that work. The one below is a favorite of mine. It’s prodominantly white with a slight layer of pink underneath. Looks great in the water. Also pictured with the fly is a sticker from a local bass fishing crew in Chicago – Cast Crew – They’re a real cool bunch of dude that have some really great appearal ideas.

happy weekend to you!
Hi, Justin. This is Mel (Gramps). Just wanted to let you know I have been hitting the local ponds regularly and have done well on fish during March with my spinning gear and tube jigs. Also, have taken another look at life and started writing a new blog over on WordPress. Here is a link: http://grampsgonefishin.wordpress.comHope you have a chance to check it out. Thanks for sharing.
Justin, it looks to me like you're quite a good fly tier. Those are some nice fishy flies.
Thank you, Howard! I take pride in my flies and really want them to be ascetically appealing, and perfect to my specifications. I hate nothing more at the bench than a fly that turned out bad, even though, I know it'll fish.
Mel! Great to see you're back with a brand new bag…blog! You've been added to the list!
