Crane Fishing Good

Fished crane this morning, caught 13 mostly on #16 egg laying caddis and on sparkle duns, again in a

# 16, but caught a few on a # 10 pheasant tail, tied in the sawyer style(no thread)

Used a new Bamboo fly rod I just got in the mail yesterday, it is a 6' Sweetgrass

Quad, very nice rod, I had it built with a 4wt and a 5wt tip, the rod is a two

pc rod, if you are looking for a nice bamboo, look no further, these rods are sweet.

I ordered the 7' quad this morning, again with a 4wt and a 5wt tip.

Good caddis hatches today on crane, lots of fish were rising, mostly small fish, I think

the biggest I caught today was about 12" saw a few that were bigger, did not see any spawning

fish or sign that they were starting to spawn, but it should happen soon, there is some evedince

of spawning in the park right in the middle if the town of Crane.

I tried some bigger flies today, but the fish were really on the caddis, did catch a few on

a #10 pheasant tail, and a few on a #10 olive gold ribbed hares ear, used 5x on the nymphs and

6X on the dries.

Water is still low and we need rain, but the fish appeared to be doing very well.

Now Tim I don't want to tell you how to live your life but as a fellow bamboo fisherman I really don't think you should use the words "break" and "bamboo rod" in the same sentence...Seems like tempting fate. :lol:

You are so very right.
