The Bleeding Shiner is apparently the most common fish in Brush Creek. I caught them all day. My micro rig for the day was the Kurenai HM30R with size 3 level line, 7X tippet and a beadhead size 26 killer bugger tied small.

“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.
