Got two minutes? Recylced Fish could use them!

How the heck do you recycle a fish???  Catch a monster 11'' bluegill, take a picture, and let that beast go for another angler to catch it again and enjoy that experience!

Recycled Fish ( http://www.recycledfish.org/ ) is the national non-profit organization of "anglers living a Lifestyle of Stewardship both on and off the water, because Our Lifestyle Runs Downstream."

But it's not about just…

Dreaming of my girls and big bull gills!

Friday the 13th is unlucky for some, but I spent mine with some fishing with a fellow NEFGA member Jarredb. and a fellow NEFGA/BigBluegill member Teeg S. The Executive Director and founder of Recycled Fish, at Verdigre Creek just North of Royal, Nebraska.



We were there fly fishing for stocked/native rainbow trout, and (to me anyway) elusive, native, naturally occurring brown trout. This was my third trip to this stream, the closest trout stream to me at around 3 hours away. A few… Continue

Fly fishing, the next step, fly tying

I began fly fishing about a month and a half ago, and with colder weather that I am not a fan of upon us here in Nebraska, I took the next step and began wanting to tie my own flies. This is natural I'm told, not only because flies are not cheap for the most part, but it also gives you a greater sense of accomplishment when you hook a fish on a fly that you tied. I've also found out that fly tying isn't exactly cheap either, I did the math and figured that to buy the materials to tie one single… Continue

A fly fisherman is born......

Back when I was a kid, I traveled a bit during summer vacations to mainly the upper midwest, from Wisconsin to Washington and many of the states in between. That was where I first saw anyone fly fishing. When I got back to Nebraksa I looked around and realized that there just wasn't much availble for anyone to get into fly fishing in the area, this was all before the internet, big sporting good stores, before the Mothership landed close to home (I've got a Cabela's 10 minutes from my house… Continue

when your on turn up your chat volume. this is what you do, go to the top of the page, click chat on the right (its on the menue bar) then when you get there put up the volume which is next to the smilie face, and the computer volume because the beep is very soft. this is because if someone trys to talk to you the chat volume is on mute. if you want to talk to someon just copy and paste this message.

Now Im no fly fisherman by anymeans but I finally got a chance to use your flies today. I wanted to wait till I heard that poppin noise on top of the water just for my confidence sake. Heres a picture of the fish I caught today thanks to you. I had that bee in the livewell when I got back so obviously I was using the rite ones! Thanks again Alex. I have enjoyed your flies!

ALEX! Guess what! Your flies worked. Bad thing is I kinda didnt use like you intened. BUT HEY THEY WORK!

I got out in the yard today tied on a couple different lenghts of 4lb ts and slung the flies around just to get used to throwin something so different than im used to. Only took about 15 secs. 10 and two works no matter what your slingin. Needless to say I had a couple fish I wanted to put back in the creek that i caought about a year ago and have had in my aquairium. What an excuse to go back to the creek. Well Its the only one I could come up with at the moment but it worked. I got stopped at the driveway.... "Dont you be gone for no hour or two!" "I see you got that fly rod in the back of your truck." " You got things around here that needs to get done before dark she says" I got down to the launch and there were a few people around my hole so I decided instead of possibly hookin somebody off of a bad gust I better just tie this on a bream buster and dance it around. I never would have thought that it would have worked but I mean its the same basic principle. BAIT IN WATER FISH BITE IF PRESONTATION IS RITE! 3 different flies and 3 fish later. I decided I better get back home.

Take em ice fishin, I just put on a split shot bout 8" up and fished em like a jig. They all produced when you twitch em rite!
Thanks for the flies Mr. G.
