Landing nets for flats fishing

The thing with the slime is what one often hears/reads for a reason not to use a net. I would only use a net in order to be more fish friendly. I am thinking about a rubber mesh wading net (trout competition style). I guess it's a trade off between shorter fight/reduced stress and damaging the slime...

Fly tying preparations for Bahamas

I was quite busy in the last few days. My tying preparations got interrupted by a 7wt rod build and a casting course with Bernd Ziesche. Still managed to tie a few more clousers (some with EP fibers), Gotchas and some streamers....

Fly tying preparations for Bahamas

Wow, what a shark James! How heavy was this fish? And how much line did it take? Must have been a long fight? Thanks for showing the tarpon fly, Willy. Too bad that the hooks broke. I don't expect to see any tarpon on this trip. Hope I will get the opportunity to fish for them someday :) Hi Pete, I ...

Fly tying preparations for Bahamas

Hi James I tied some clousers in the meantime, on size 1/0 hooks. Will tie some smaller ones next. clousers.jpg I plan to tie some hollow-style bucktail streamers for sharks, like this one (my go to pike pattern) but on a stronger hook. What do you think about the size? I like the pike streamers rat...

Hey Willly

Thanks for the picture. They indeed look bigger, and especially much scruffier than mine. Will tie some in that style too ;)

Fly tying preparations for Bahamas

Hi James

So far I caught all my bonefish on a crab fly (which is just one fish :)). It's a very simple tie, at least compared to a lot of other crab patterns.

What size do you tie your clousers? How much weight for the eyes?

Cheers

Fly tying preparations for Bahamas

Great flies, James. I like the eyes, will add some to my Gotchas too. What do you think about the color of the green crab? Is it ok for turtle grass spots, or too dark? Thanks for the advice Willy, I will bring some more bigger flies then. I only tied about a handful of larger flies so far, on size ...
