I slept in today, watched cartoons and drank excessive amounts of damn good coffee before making my way out to the flat at around 11am. It was a good day, landing 9 fish in 4 hrs with 4 being overslot (1 being very overslot). Everything ate the same fly, which is the same fly I've been throwing for a little over a month now (can't find anything that won't eat it). Anyway, I had a good time, and thought I'd share.

The fly- Gartside soft hackle streamer on a #1 SC15

That's hilarious. I noticed that when I did the SBS for the soft hackle streamer, I can't believe the filter won't let me list my materials. And yes, it is jungle ****. I only use it when stick on eyes will alter the profile of the fly. I think they're kinda silly, especially when you see what guys will pay for a tiny little cape (mine was free dollars).

Not) because the local fly shop here in Ft.Myers barely carries it and again great job:thumbsup

Shoulders indeed. That fish made me re-think my "there's nothing in the river you can't land on 12lb" theory. The fight was too long, but she swam off enthusiastically with very little resuscitation.

If you do go thru ebay there is a guy in Estonia that has the best prices and quality Jungleputz. AHA! There is no Yiddish filter....LMAO

some great fish, congrats. That last one is definitely a stud. I'll be thrilled to see anything near that size in the goon a couple weeks from now...

After getting skunked a couple days ago by skittish fish I decided to tie up one of those maribou streamers. Didn't have any duck flanks ( or jungle ****) so I imporovised. It worked good! Today I got three reds, one a little over slot and two nice trout. Pulled the hook on a much bigger speck. Dang! Got picks of fish but the fly was pretty beat by the last fish. Then the wind kicked up.
