Largemouth Bass - Meet The Shuffler

It was nice getting out to wet a line. It been so rainy in the Midwest.
I was able to try out the Robert Meade Shuffler fly I demonstrated at NIFTy last week. 
I was able to catch a few Largemouth Bass before the thunderstorm rolled in.

Corey Gale Deer Hair Tying Demonstration


Bob Hovet and Mark LoVerde saw Corey Gale tying deer hair popper flies at The Early Show this past fall and were very impressed with his work. Since a number of Nifty members have noted they are not comfortable tying these flies, it struck them as the perfect opportunity to upscale Nifty member skills. Corey graciously agreed to demonstrate for Nifty members his deer hair spinning techniques. Corey demonstration was entertaining, educational and the results were amazing. Thank you Corey!

Flyfishnut Archive Video

I found this in my YouTube video archives from 2011. I was using a 6wt, 9' 6" Scott rod for Largemouth Bass. This 27 1/2" Hybrid Bass was a battle. 

Film: Fly Fishing for Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit in Florida in SLAM

Grand slam ventures in Florida in a film from Costa!
From Costa:
“Achieving a backcountry slam (catching a bonefish, tarpon and permit in one day) in the Florida Keys is rare. But more women are stepping up to the challenge. Three expert anglers from different walks of life bring the stoke and drama of the difficult quest to the big screen.”
