On the Fly ...
Weather Conditions - low 60's, 10 to 12 mph northwest winds, overcast
Water Conditions - 61 degrees at the shoreline, slightly stained, normal water level

Grabbed the 4 weight and slipped out to the local pond.  Despite a 10+ degrees drop in temperature from the prior day, managed to hook-up on a load of panfish ... mostly crappies, ranging from 9 to 12 inches.  The crappies were suspending at the 5 foot mark along steep drop-offs, the ticket was swimming a Molly Mouse (size 10) using a slow and steady hand-twist retrieve.  In the photo, first fish of the outing.

        Line & Lure Conditioner is the reel deal ...
Since the spring of 2012, I have been using Line & Lure on my fly lines, leaders, tippets, dry flies and bass bugs … and its performance has been “two thumbs-up”.  Cleaning and coating my fly line with this conditioner reduces line-to-guide friction and repels debris which increases line control (improved casting accuracy, line speed and distance) and better line floatability (easier line mending and pick-up, improved fly presentation).  On leaders and tippets, they float higher and cleaner.  Dressing my dry flies and bass bugs with Line & Lure has proven to be a major plus … they ride higher and longer than other dressings that I have used in the past.  Therefore, I have spend less time drying / re-dressing my fly and more time fishing.  Yes, it’s like adding “power steering” for your fishing.  Also, using Line & Lure on your sunglasses adds a scratch resistant and dust repelling coating … along with, reduce glare and minimizes water spotting.
