View Full Version : a float of my own
today i got to try out the new(to me) float tube. i got a caddis high serria tube from my neighbor. debacker and i hit the hooch right before noon and put in at the canoe ramp. there seemed to be very little caddis activity at the time. we met gray ghost, who was generous with tips and woolly buggers. GG->it was good to meet you.
i caught 7 on a black wooly bugger before we got to the house. all rainbows, but large and fat 13-14". have they been stocking larger fish?
tried to conjure up some fish on a caddis but debacker was the only one that had the luck with the hatch. i couln't figure it out.
we floated almost until dark and then hiked back. a great day.
we also saw two other people in tubes. did this happen to be anyone on the board?
LJ, i'm off to wisconsin, when i get back does the offer to show me some water to float still stand?

Yep Betzel. If Owl gets out of the nuthut that Jah has made arrangements for him to take a vacation at, maybe we'll let him come.

Hey Betzel and Debacker it was nice meeting and talking with you guys.I finished up my day as you guys turned the corner for the house run.My homemade duct tape and shrink wrap cast on my wrist was starting to blow out quick .The little Dink Bows I was catching started to hurt trying to get them in even using the "Slim Jim drift" method of fishing.A few weeks from now lets try to get "Ichthus" aka "Stockbridge Kid" me and you and Debacker to make the JB to Holcomb bridge run.Its a nice one for fat holdover Browns and I hope to be off the injured list by then.Good Hunting

I also met two of the "Ga.Women Flyfishers" at JB when I was getting out at the parking lot.We shared a few "Hooch secrets" while they were getting their gear on.I was glad I got in and out of the river before they arrived.I could tell by talking with them that they were some serious trout hunters.When I met them they were talking with another guy about getting his gear back together and fishing the river.I like to see folks do that because to me thats a big part of it sharing and helping others when you can to enjoy what we enjoy.Good Hunting

Hey, GG, the ladies mentioned that they met you, shared flies and stories. How many did you get? Heard that your stringer was mighty full.

Hey Flygurl I did pretty good with a sprained right wrist that I had taped up with duct tape and shrink wrap.I think it actually improved my cast.I caught about 20 to 25 - 10 to 14 inch little rainbows and one little brown on Black and Olive Bead head Woolly buggers.My next door neighbor at work has been after me for about a year to bring him some trout to cook.I culled out my limit of 8 little 12 inch bows for him and his family to enjoy. His Dad told me this morning that his 12 year old son wants me to teach him how to use a flyrod this summer so he can catch some "Giant Rainbow Trout" like I gave his Dad last night. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif Your friends were really nice and great representatives of the "Ga Women Flyfishers". I look forward to seeing you Ladies on the river.Good Hunting
