People waitin' people tyin'...

I saw two carp on Friday. My grin was involuntary and long lasting. Very long lasting. I even did a two fingers to the sky bit, like Randall Cunningham did after every one of his 34 regular season TD passes in 1998. Dude, dude, YES, dude I kept saying while I watched those cold, hard bodies moving ever so slowly. I knew in the back of my mind though that while they were harbingers of paradise to come, they weren't leaders of any real pack at this point. Still too cold. I went out anyway for an hour yesterday - despite high winds, crappy light and cold temps. Never saw a fish. Went to liquor store instead of fishing for the second hour.

Further waiting begets further tying then. I cranked these out an hour ago while listening to So Much for the Afterglow.

Some version of the Beefus swimming clouser nymph. John Montana and I talked about this one yesterday. I didn't have the hen hackle so I played with other feathers - not as good as the hen hackle. Still catch a carp though I think.

Vegetation fly, from Carp on the Fly reference.

A cape that I use a lot has these cool little underfeathers that really have a lot of motion to them - almost like rubber legs with feather fibers attached. This fly is tied from a hook I found on a pier yesterday, DB eyes, thread, and the feathers from just that one cape. A nice rusty bit.

Have you had success fishing the vegetation fly before, or is this a first tie? I sold my old HMH and ordered a Dyna-King Trekker. It should be here tomorrow, but the last week or so has been killing me not having a vise. I have a bunch of patterns I need to get squared away in the next week or two before fishing starts to pick up.

Dude, dude, yes dude. Spending an hour at the liquor store? You should come up and try fishing on the Mississipi with me. There must be some monsters in there.

First tie on the veg fly... Reynolds and Beefus speak highly of it. My guess is that it will work well. Looks good, and they eat a lot of veg.

It wasn't an hour at the liquor store I guess... it was more like the number of minutes it takes to walk in the door, pick up the 1.5 liter magnum bottles of white wine and all the six packs of decent beer that are on clearance and head home.

Speaking of the Miss up there - I often regret NOT fishing that river more when we fricking lived right next to it.
