Little black diving caddis tutorial

 Here is a tutorial for the diving the caddis wet fly. I always tie a few small black ones. They work really well on streams with good little black caddis populations.  The fly is effective almost all day long and is best fished down and across with mends to allow the fly to drift naturally or dead, then allow to swim when the mend straightens.

Attack of the Buzzers!!!!

 Well got out this after noon for some flying on my local limestoner. Not much surface activity upon my arrival. Nor did it pick up any while I fished.  I tied on a dry dropper rig consisting of a paraloop hammer and a rusty blues buzzer for the dropper. Been some time since I fished with buzzers and had forgot just how well they worked.  Wit hin a few drifts, I was into a really nice wild brown.  He wouldnt let me photo him of coarse and he got me in the finger with the dry when he went streaking back into the run.
  I fished up a good section of stream and the fish was good.  Only managed 1 brown on the dry, and all the rest came on the buzzer.  I trashed my last camera while out fishing so I'm a little hesitant to take pictures anymore. But i did get some shots. 
  Saw bwos hatching both size 16 and 24s, as well as some tiny pale duns. For whatever reason I didnt notice any rises for them though.  All in all, it was good time out.

Out for a spell

 Well, I got out today with senior fredy and hit the mighty musky. The water is an oddity to all the streams around as it is flowing high.  
 The winning ticket today was wet flies    The stockie bows were all over them and hitting them hard.  The wets I was using I don't have a name for as of yet but I'll be sure to share the patterns in the future.  

Fredy got the only wild of the day and on the infamous pink worm.  Didnt take any picture of the stocked bows. 
  As for bugs, alls I saw the whole time were tan caddis and lots of them.  Be sure to be armed with caddis if you head out in the near future!

Time goes!

 Wow, cant believe i havnt posted in 4 months! Didnt realize it had been so long! My apoligies to all my subscribers.  I will continue to post, and coming up will be more tutorials and videos! loop wing duns and paraloop hammers to name a few. 
  I have been out lately here and there. The tricos are still hatching on the local limestoners here in New Jersey and Pa. Plan to be on the stream around noon till three.  Dont forget about caddis as they are still present on all the streams.  The bwo hatches have been pretty decent lately.  And trout are still willing to eat terrestrials. 
   Stay tuned! Thank you
