New Lures.

Well the relatives decided to stay an extra day, but the cooked so that was cool. They also attempted to play rugby in the yard and broke a bunch of plants, but they needed trimming anyway.I did manage to go fishing every morning for the last 4 days, first 3 days the fishing was great, but this morning there were few clouds and a lot of sun on the water which can mess things up sometimes, and the current was bit slower. Caught a fish my first cast but a wave knocked it against a rock and a shell or barnacle broke cut the line, then no bites for the next 2 hours, so I went home.

I want to start tying flies that look like either a small fish or one of the invertebrates that is around here, then try to catch a fish on that. Kind the the next level of tricking a fish, having it bite something you made yourself rather than bought at a store. So hopefully by the next post I will have something picked out, probably won't have anything made yet since I'll need to order some materials.

  2. I thought about trying to make my own lures, but I wouldn't know where to start. Which sucks, because I have been having terrible luck this season. None of my old stand-bys are working

  4. It's always more rewarding to catch a fish on something you made. Good luck with your adventures.

  5. Last time I went fishing, I was on a lake for an entire week and couldn't catch a single fish. I'm convinced there weren't any fish there to start with.
    Glad you're having better luck than I did

  8. Fish are dangerous. Please use extreme caution when employing fish as anything other than a foodstuff. This message is not a joke.
