Too Big, Too Little, Too late but still Blue

by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, Mo)

Too big for smallest, too little for biggest and too late for first, but I caught this green sunfish on the first cast of my first blue fly (which was in the batch of the first flies I've ever tied - all killer bugs). I was fishing on Tomahawk Creek in suburban Kansas City. It's a pretty place all clear and rocky with riffles and pools - if only it were cold enough for trout. The rod is a Nissin Zerosum 360 6:4.

Nice to see your comment. Even nicer to see your local. I remember the first fish I ever caught on a fly I had tied myself, now you are truly hooked.

“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.
