  1. It's been a couple 3 years, but fished the run down down from the bridge next to the fish runs and had good luck. this exact pattern and color, but size 16, picture is a size 12.
  2. It's a trolling motor issue. I can pull out and bring it someplace, but was hoping for a quicker approach, willing to pay a bit more for the convenience. thanks for the response.
  3. I keep my boat on Taney. Are there any boat mechanics that offer a mobile service? Come to my dock perform maintenance or a fix an issue?
  4. I fly fish Taney a bunch. With heavy flow, dead drifting a megaworm (mop chenille) on a jig hook can produce well in various colors, white, pink, salmon. Here's a link to some Taney patterns. https://flytyerworld.com/#/FlyboxTiles/5cbe1f011856f6e6000f6835
  5. So, here's a pin to the location where you can park, walk down to creek.. fish up and down the creek, they are very spooky, recommend going down stream a ways, there's a trail and fish holes and riffles.. small midges (i.e. blood midge. zebra, etc.) with 6x tippet. This is the only place I've fished, someone else might have other locations. https://www.google.com/maps/place/36%C2%B055'29.3%22N+93%C2%B035'17.0%22W/@36.924816,-93.590244,628m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x87cf38082fab5c4d:0x79d0c3c641acf8c1!2sCrane,+MO+65633!3b1!8m2!3d36.9053361!4d-93.5715838!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d36.9248158!4d-93.58805
  6. Another warm water species you can target on the fly and the region are Wipers (Hybrids between white bass and stripers) . They are pelagic so they move around the reservoirs, but lots of KS/Mo reservoirs stock them (Truman, Clinton, Northfork, ect.). They travel in schools and even though they can't reproduce they still have spawning behavior so in the spring you often find them in abundance off of dams that you can fish with a fly rod. When you get on them it's a blast, and they put up an awesome fight. In my opinion very much like some saltwater species. I fish for them with a 8wt. (6 or 7 will do) and sinking line or leader. Clousers or anything representing a shad. Of course a boat with electronics works the best, otherwise follow the birds or busting shad. They will mix white bass, and they can get very big quick, love catching them.
  7. Amazing bow and arrow cast, thanks for sharing.
  8. Fished Saturday through Monday, drifted cable to narrows, this midge pattern/color (size 16/18) produced entire length. Hope it's ok that I commented on this here.
  9. If you get a chance watch the new documentary "Live the Stream" about Joe Humphreys. Fantastic movie, very cool guy, and they fish the Little Red in the movie. Don't have to be a fly angler to enjoy, great for the whole family. It's available on demand.
  10. Ty these all the time fishing the white system. San Juan Worms, Scuds, ruby midges, zebra midges, double deceivers, chubby Chernobyl... For out West. pat's rubber legs, copper johns, pheasant tail nypmhs, sparkle midges Warm water - Clouser's, buggers Love tying the big articulated stuff, have more than I really need do it because it's fun. I never have enough small stuff, maybe I should use bigger tippet Oh yeah, don't do a ton a dry fly fishing in the midwest, but out west ty adams, griffiths, sulfer and mayfly pattern
  11. Wishing you a quick recovery
