Size 26 Blue Fly

It must be intended that I no longer fish the Nissin Prosguare. After replacing the broken sections, it broke again in one of the replaced sections. Not sure if it was faulty or not but I was barely setting the hook when it broke. After fishing with TUSA Amago for a bit, I decided to fish for micros.

I was fishing Kiyotaki 24 and a size 26 blue fly. I was getting smaller blue gills but I could tell the hook was to big for the real small ones. I fished for a couple hours before going home for Dinner.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

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.
