Creekside Tidbits & On the Vise


Working the edges of weedlines means fishing success!  Panfish and bass will use underwater foliage for staging, feeding and protection.  Upon locating green and healthy weeds along a shoreline, on a hump or flat ... next, identify the edge of the weedline (this is usually dictated by water depth, where the lack of sunlight penetration can't sustain their life).  Work the fly as close as possible to the edge.

Can't draw a strike or the bite turns-off ... a subtle change can have a huge impact on your fishing productivity.  Here's a few options to consider ... changing the fly (size, color, weighted / un-weighted, pattern), the retrieve (speed, pattern) or the tippet (length, diameter, monofilament / fluorocarbon).
