Water levels back up

Had the day off today, thought id check out the rideau river. The water levels back up so head down and enjoy the deep shore points! landed myself a few nice fish today and even broke a personal record, none stop fish! Every cast was a miss strike or a nice size fish. the mix of sun and smoggy over cast made the day really productive and fishing in a t-shirt was great! Keep fishing everyone!

Land Locked!! help!

So Its been a long time since iv posted anything new sorry's to all! Im a very very busy man....Lazy man. Iv only gotten out on the water twice in the past few weeks and happily its been very productive, a few fish here and there. So finally I bought a fly vice, cost me a total of $17.00 canadian from Le barons outdoor store, that place has amazing deals, its nothing special or anything but it works. Sweet now I don't have to use a wooden L bracket fitted with a model knife clamp! I also picked up a few fly tying supplies, although I don't fish fly I like to make elaborate jigs with feathers and hair and such, iv almost switched to jigs exclusively because of all the fish I'm landing on them! I don't like buying in to the lure gimmicks these days not to mention I drool over many flies I see on the web so most of my models are fly inspired, last year I managed to spend around $400 on damn crank baits and such, this year its all on feathers thread and hair and i'm saving a life time supply of cash because of it. Not to mention the level of gratification I get from landing huge snot rockets on them. Posts will be more frequent in the coming days because i'm land locked, I plan on posting a series of lures i'm tying so check back regularly all to take a look. I really want to develop a world wide community for those who fish with their own home brewed lures so I encourage anyone who has pictures to send them to me and ill me happy to post them on the site along with what ever information you want to add such as name, fish and where it was caught. Keep fishing everyone and have a great week.

Pouring Rain

Well, its raining none stop today and apparently for the next few days. I don’t mind the rain usually but there is no way I’m standing on the river in this! so for the next few days ill be tying a few lures to show off and waiting for some breaks in the downpour to get a few fish hopefully, iv been looking for new meterials that present a lot of flash with little movement to if anyone has any suggestions for tying into jigs. My comments post allows anyone to post not just blogspot users so if you come across this anyone and know of anything to tie into some jigs drop me a line at or feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy the downpour all and ill see you on the water.

The blue Assassin

I started by tying some red buck tail on the top for some bloody action and some white on the bottom for a belly look. Than to top it all off I threw on some silvery blue wig hair, a patch on both sides of the jigs eyes, the wig hair moves amazing in the water and it seems best to leave it long, because the 2 strips join together when they are wet and it looks like a slender bodied bait fish swimming along. the plastic nature of the wig hair lets it fall very slow so you can give it hard twitches and you have lots of hang time. all together great tie , although the hair could be a little thicker, its very thinly spaced. Any who, enjoy everyone happy hunting.
