You are right, there is some really good fishing up there. I miss it. Most of my fishing was one dam down and on down to Guntersville.

Sorry for the delayed response bayoutalker.I've been out of action for a few days.I live in north Georgia,near chatt tn.
It's about a 15 min drive to chickamauga dam from where I live.I fish below the dam in what is actually the headwater of nick-a jack lake. Great year round fishing.

Fly Tying / Dealing with Flashaboo
« Last post by AdrianL on May 24, 2015, 11:59:48 AM »
A good while ago I asked here about how different people dealt with flashaboo. My problem was that I would cut off the strands I wanted for a fly and that left a bunch of different length strands in the bundle. If I cut off a full length set of strands I was having problems keeping them organized so I could use the fest of the strands on another fly. I had a bunch of good ideas, some of which I incorporated in my tying and they helped a lot but, for me, it still was not just what I was looking for.

Today I stumbled on an idea that is working just right for me. I select out the number of strands I want for the fly(s) I am tying and cut them off full length from the bundle. I have a flat end which I tie onto the fly. I pull my hand back and cut the strands off the exact length I want for the fly which leaves me again with a flat end. Then I put the strands in my hair stacker, tap it down a couple of times and when I am ready with the next fly, I pull the strands out and I still have a flat end to tie on my fly. Works just as I wanted to for me anyway. The strands stay together and I have a flat even end to tie with.

It's just another idea -

Enjoy

Kisatchie Fly Fishers / May 26 meeting - video "Midge Magic"
« Last post by Catch Cormier on May 20, 2015, 07:34:31 PM »
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, May 26, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm. Please note that we will meet on Tuesday due to the Memorial Day holiday.  Guests are welcome.

For this meeting, we'll watch a video, "Midge Magic with Davy Wotton".  Wotton will be the featured guest instructor for the North Louisiana Fly Fishers' annual Master Series on July 25th at the Red River Refuge in Bossier City.  Details of that event can be found here.

In this video, the British-born Arkansas guide demonstrates, on a variety of water types, all the skills needed to catch trout feeding on midges.  He covers gear, leaders, tippets, tactics to approaching spooky fish, useful line management methods, casting tactics and more.  He demonstrates a variety of rigging systems and fishing them at different depths.

Also on the agenda: fishing reports, several upcoming events including the CCA Cenla Fishing Seminar, the Kisatchie club's rod building clinic on June 20, and the Grand Isle Fly Fishing weekend.

Very Beautimus!

The second and third ones take less time since you've figured out
what you want it to look like.
