I'll have more details on the podcast. For now, I'll tell the story through pictures.
I started to prepare flies a few weeks ago. I was going on knowledge from last year's tournament. We got lots of bites in the giant lilly pads and at the edge of the spatterdock.
Pat Ehler's flies. Flies HAVE TO BE WEEDLESS in Mattawoman creek as there is a lot of submerged aquatic vegetation and ridiculously fibrous spatterdock and lilly pads.
- "Producer" Jason Reif
- Andrew Holt
- Rebecca Davenport
- FLW tour with hundreds of bass boats that day
- Poor water quality
- Lots of bow hunting boats with mega bright lights.
We got on the water around 6 and motored up creek to pick up Holt at Slavins.
A wet reaper is a good reaper. Hope those who bought my flies at the Fly Fishing Show have the same luck. Note the weed guard, made from crafting wire.
