We are already booking trips for the springtime Mothers Day Caddis Hatch on the Watauga Tailwater. It usually starts on or around April 5th and continues through Mothers Day in May. Be sure to give me a call or email to get your trip set up. You can also use our new online booking system on the website, it allows us to take credit cards for deposits and trip payments.
Here is a video on the DepthCharge Caddis nymph we use during this hatch. It has a body full of lead making it the reason for the name. Using Czech style nymphing with our new TFO BVK 10 foot rods will make sure you get the fly in the right spots at the proper depth to get you hooked up on those fiesty Watauga Tailwater rainbows and browns.
Give me a call at 423-360-1468, or email me email@example.com to get your Caddis Hatch trip on the calendar before the dates are gone.
Here we are fishing Wilson Creek Delayed Harvest with the Tenkara rods. We were using the Ito and Amago rods with level fluorocarbon leaders ending at a 2 pound tippet. The nymphs were the best flies to have on, a heavy Caddis Czech style nymph was the bottom fly with a brown scud on the dropper. Wilson Creek is some beautiful water and plenty of rainbows and brook trout were caught. If you want to try your hand at Tenkara Style fishing, give me a call.
I am pleased to announce that we now have online booking available for your fishing trips, click on the “BOOK ONLINE NOW” link on the left side of the site. You can still call or email me for dates, but this new system will let you use your credit cards for deposits and trip final payment.
Well the folks at Chota Outdoor Gear Co. have hit a homerun with their new “Hippies”. During those days when you don’t want to wear those hot waders, but the river or stream is still a little to cold to wet wade these are perfect. So you are looking for that Christmas gift, something that your fisher-person doesn’t already have, look at the the Chota Hippies. Check out the video on them.
So many of us struggle with focal length, hands and fingers that don’t work well and many other reasons we have a hard time tying on our flies and droppers. Here is a video to show you the forcep knot I use when tying on my flies as well as the droppers off the back of the hook. Hope this helps someone out there.
