Great write up Eddie. Real nice looking Brookie.

Sure wish I could've stuck around to fish after TrapFest. A lot warmer today than Saturday! May be awhile before I get my first chance in 2018.

Cold weather kept the sissies at home Flapper , so this Trapfest was a blast!

Shout out to the O-Pro's (check out their website: https://www.oprosgear.com/ ) ... turns out the "O" is for "Outdoors", and not "Orgasm", as some might suspect.

To the Eaganites: hell yeah you made some friends. Welcome aboard.

Thanks to BigRiverBum, foolish enough (yet again) to go fishing with a jig-fisherman on Sunday.

Always good to see fellow regulars SuperFly Bill and Skimmer.

Big thanks to Trap, & thanks to our local celebrities that showed up: Dan Small & John Bethke.

Oh, I should have included Eddie in the 'local celebrities' too. Awesome blog post, Eddie -- keep it coming!


Plain & simple -- DTA rocks.

The newest issue of Outdoor News has an article about trapfest written by Dan Small. Eddie and Trapper are quoted!

Someone (sorry, I'm terrible remembering names) at TrapFest on Saturday evening showed me a small black leech pattern they had tied, possibly with a jig head hook. I'd like to tie some of those. Can whoever that was post a picture of it?


Thanks!

Without a doubt a crane fly larva. I tie a jig to to represent it that is a trout slaying workhorse.
thanks 1 user thanked s.t.fanatic for this useful post.

That's got me interested.

Here's a great pattern for tying the Cranefly Larva. Although I would substitute a dumbbell head instead of a bead.

Damn. Now I have to make another trip to the fly shop for supplies!!
