Experimenting with slip floats...part 2

That's looking more like it:

Determine the length of the "stem" and insert it into the body:

Pressing a glass bead into the stem. I despise the plastic beads used on most slip floats, as the wear too easily and pinch my line.…

Experimenting with slip floats.

Since I'm unable to fish,broken heart  I thought I would post a few photos showing what I'm up to with my floats. This first photo shows the materials I'm using: Cans of primer and topcoat, 3/16" rigid aquarium tubing, glass beads from the craft store, some 5/32" hardened drill rod used for a turning mandrel, 1" square balsa blocks, and some split, flat washers and O-rings, used for float weighting.…

With the success many of you have with crickets, either fished alone or tipped on a jig.  I decided I needed a good cricket pattern for my fly box.  I had tried in the past to tie a cricket pattern, but was never happy with the profile or proportions.  I have a foam spider pattern that is easy to tie and I thought if I could add some shapely legs, a wing and some markings I could produce something that might pass for a cricket to a hungry gill.  I little time at the vise produced…

Hook Removal Tool

A hook out tool can be easily made from an old ball point pen tube. Pull out the ink cartridge and insert a plastic arrow nock with a little glue if it does not fit snug. An old pen tube with an attached clip is the most convenient. A package of arrow nocks can be found in the hunting department. I selected the narrowest knocks I could find to better fit into smaller bluegill mouths. Once completed, push the knock down to the hook bend. Then with a little tension on the line you can usually…

The Secret to Flutter Spooning Pickerel.

This is a shallow water method, first told to me by our own beloved John Sheehan, of RINGWOOD, NJ. You may not know that John is a fine musician; you can hear him on ITUNES or see him on YouTube all day long. I encourage you to do so. But John is also an accomplished angler and he uses this plan for both bass and pickerel. Let John tell you how it works:

“Flutter spoons thin gauged spoons that come into play when a slow fall is the preferred presentation  . This means they don't cast…

More cold water fish....

Got out for 30 minutes before work this morning, and I caught 5 HBG. All good fish, although the cold killed the batteries in my scale, so estimating weight between 1 lb for smaller fish, and around 22 ozs. for largest. Ice jig tipped with spikes, water has risen to 44 degrees, air temp was 30 degrees.…
