Flash and Wiggle

I tried the new .4g Daiwa Fly Spoons this afternoon. Can't remember ever fishing with a spoon, much less with a fixed line rod. They work!! Tied on a silver spoon with a no slip loop knot. Cast my TB 40 and proceeded to walk around our local C&R pond. Got a nice 14" rainbow on in about 10 minutes. All that flash and wiggle has got to be pretty hard for any fish to ignore. These tiny spoons definitely earned a spot in my fly box. Thanks Chris!

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
