I want to coat foam poppers and heads for flys.

Group buy seems in order.  And maybe its time to do fly swaps. Kind of slow now but I might host a couple swaps even if I do not tie.  Thanks for info.

I was surprised that this company's skirt material is SO CHEAP! You get 10 sections
of the material that is 5-1/2 inches long and 20 strands wide
per package ("All Items Sold AS 10 Packs" stated on the site). That's enough to tie up QUITE

And it does make nice Tails and Legs on flies - my new favorite color (Fire Tiger) Bluegill Itsabug!

I used to find reverse flowing eddy's in ditches and creeks as a kid and did better than most.
Warmwater Fly Fishing / Fishing in overflowing rivers
« Last post by bluegillbob on October 18, 2014, 08:46:10 PM »
Lately my creeks and rivers have been trying to move all the rain downstream...and have grown considerably. I checked out one of my creeks to see the water height...about 5 feet higher (one huge boulder is completely submerged)! Not only is the water level high, but the speed of the flowing water has drastically increased!

Should I forgo trying to fish it? In the past, I've simply waited until the water level drops back to normal levels. 


Kisatchie Fly Fishers / October 20 Fly Tying - Clouser Minnow
« Last post by Catch Cormier on October 17, 2014, 08:44:00 PM »
Our next fly tying session will take place on Monday, October 20, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm. The public is invited.

The pattern this month will be the Clouser Minnow.  Developed by Bob Clouser for smallmouth bass, it may be the most universal pattern ever created.  Lefty Kreh claims to have caught 87 different species on this fly. Clousers are the best fly for speckled trout, sand trout, and white bass, and a good fly for redfish.  It's also a great pattern for schooling largemouth. It's also fairly easy to tie.

Bring your tools if you have some, materials will be provided.  For those without tools, the club has 3 sets of tools for use only during tying sessions.  See ya there! 
Restaurant Reviews! / Rosie's Soul Food in Beaumont, TX

After seeing a post on this restaurant on another forum I decided to give it a try. My wife and I went there for lunch yesterday and we were not disappointed. This is another of those small, out of the way places with great food and friendly people that you would never know existed if it was not pointed out.

They have a large variety of traditional soul food items done to perfection. My wife tried the meatloaf, butter beans and stewed okra and I had the pork chop in gravy, butter beans and greens. Meals are served with a LARGE scoop of rice. All of the food was great and there certainly was plenty of it. Neither of us could clean our plates.

The restaurant is located about 2 blocks off of Calder on the corner of Hazel and 7th St between Calder and I-10. Give them a try when in the area.
