Default Toccoa (Horseshoe Bend)

Here is a short video of me fishing horseshoe bend this past sunday in the rain. I caught 15 in just a couple hours. No big ones but was still a blast.

Kevin, you are a catching machine! When I grow up I want to catch fish just like you do. You're the man! Good video.

Thumbs up

Really cool video Prowler. The rain and mist were nice added effects. Made me want to run to the basement and grab my gear. Thanks for sharing!

Cool Entertaining Tourists!

When fishing the 'Bend or other key locations along the Toccoa and in sight of the railroad, do not neglect your tourist entertainment obligations. All you have to do is listen closely and when you hear the excursion train approaching hook the bottom, put a nice bend in the rod and move it back and forth like you have a trophy fish on! I have seen the tourists almost fall off the train trying to take photos of us doing this. Sometimes I wonder how many family vacation photos I am in .........

Actually I had a cop pull up along side me and sit there for about 15 minutes. Did know if he was about to arrest me or ask me what fly I was using

On the DH last Saturday I did well with black micro leech and a candy corn I tie which is similar to a y2k Those are normally my two flies of choice of the dh. On the tailwater I normally go with small natural size 18-20 pheasant tail or hares ears with and without soft hackle and Sunday at horseshoe the fly of the day was a size 18 JLO soft hackle that I tie. I posted a pic of it a while back
