    For comparison, this fly probably looked about like the other one a month ago. It has been cast maybe a thousand times, stuck in a bunch of bushes and trees, dragged though a lot of algae and weeds,...

    Five Pounder Wanted

    I got the bug tied. Now I just need to find a five pounder who wants a frog for breakfast. An eight pounder would be really nice but I think it is better to be grateful than greedy.

    Topwater Today

    I got out in the Delta today in the kayak and fished the morning topwater window and got one fish but it was a good one. I would say five pounds. I have fished the morning topwater a few times now...

    Beautiful scene. I assume those are the Sierra Buttes. I hiked from Sierra City around those once. Not to the fire lookout at the top but pretty close to it. That was a good day.

    I have never had flying ants 10 miles to the south of you. I have had a lot of ants but they fortunately went away. Maybe they are termites. That would be bad. I used to have those also. Now I...

    One Lucky Bass

    I feel like it is going to be a windy summer in the west Delta. Right now it is hard to find a break in the wind that is fishable for a kayaker with a fly rod. This morning looked like it would be...

    I like that picture also. There is a lot going on and the colors are great. The oar and the net help tell the story. The eye of the fish is just above the water line like he is peeking at you.
