Well folks, the fishing has slowed a bit on the big pond. We aren't catching 'eyes in the same numbers as we were a few weeks ago, but what we are catching are some very nice fish - usually over 23 inches. We have been catching these on crawler harnesses with a little flash of orange or red. I've been using Colorado Spinner Blades For Crawler Harnesses and they have been working great for the big fish. Most of these are multicolored and we have had the best luck with orange or red blended with dark green. Shrter snells seem to work better.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
