SUMMER TIME BACKWATER THUMPERS

i catch most of my fish in the back waters of lake chicot,what i call thicket fishing, a fly rod longer then seven foot is useless.

the only cast is a roll cast,your rod never gets behind your ear,it is rare that i use a leader longer then four feet ,you just can not roll a long leader under the low limbs of cypress or

tupelo gum trees not to mention the button wood bushes.

to generate the line speed needed to make those tight rolls i use 6 to 10 wt. line on 61/2 and seven ft.… Continue

Hey I'm jealous,you should always be able to catch fish where your at , I grew up in Baker, La and learned how to bream fish on Old River and several other Bayou down therein the Atchafalaya basin and on Gulf coast. I'll always remember a trip to a place called Lake Martin where every bream we caught weighed over a lb. but we had to fight the cottonmouths and gators for every one. I'm in N.Ark.now but my wife is from Pineville,La. I miss fishing those swamps.
