Happy Cutthroat Leader Co Customers.

Just Some pics of our extremely loyal customers showing off a successfull day of fishing.

Last week I posted about getting into some big browns with my son while mousing….  Needless to say, I have been tying mouse patterns as of recently.

So I am sitting at my desk and I hear my little girl say to herself 
"now, where is that whip finisher...." I Turn around and she is tying a deer hair mouse pattern... One I can actually fish with... a proud Dad indeed.

If you have kids, get them involved in your passion.  It will simply guarantee a fishing buddy later in life.  

We have been using our 36" nylon "floating" furled leader when throwing these big nasty mouse patterns.  A stiff 36" butt section of furled leader turns these heavy flies with ease.  My 9 yr son can drop a big mouse within inches of the bank, imagine what you could do...

Fishing with my my son, Big Browns, Mice flies equal "Big" Fun....

I headed out yesterday for a day of fishing and messing around with my 9 year old son. I was not expecting the fishing to be great, but we were planning on having fun none the less.

The fishing was slow, very slow. We did bring a few to the net in the morning stripping small streamers. At this point in the trip, what my son enjoyed the most was watching the Brown Trout Spawning. Taking a break from fishing, we spent much time walking the river banks (without rod in hand) watching the browns do their thing. This gave me an opportunity to answer a few of the many fish spawning questions he had.

As to keep away from the mating browns, we moved to another deep pool in the river, but again the fishing was slow. We caught a couple more on top, but cold air and the wind was getting the better of my son. From where we stood, we could see some “BIG” browns swimming in the deep pool. They would come close to the top of the water column every once in a while, but never actually surfaced.

My son made the recommendation to throw a mouse pattern… How could I deny him his request. He selected the mouse pattern from my streamer box, and I tied it on. Up until this point, we were fishing dries and a dropper. (5 wt rod and dry fly leader). I tied on the mouse and made the first cast. Bam, a large brown exploded on the mouse pattern which was now only about 10 feet from us. I missed the strike but this sure got our blood pumping.

We ran back to the truck, put away the 5 wt rods and grabbed my 7 wt rod with a heavy top water “Big Bug” leader. This set-up made throwing big, wet, heavy mice patterns much easier. Also, I had 2x tippet to help turn such a heavy fly. A few casts later, another large brown smacked my mouse pattern. Now keep in mind this was about 3:00 in the afternoon with slight cloud cover. I never thought we would get so much attention using mice. Now this was fun. We missed a lot of takes, but we also connected with a few. I only had one heavy rod with me, so we took turns. A turn consisted of getting a strike or making 5 casts and retrieves. Needless to say, I was very impressed that my son could deliver a mouse pattern so perfectly to these fish. Being that we were fishing from the same general pool, this was great fishing. Now the same kid that was previously cold and chilled by the wind did not want to leave. My job as a fishing dad was complete…

Fly Fishing with aging eyes.

So it has begun…  What you ask.  The fading ability to tie on a small delicate fly.  See, I have always been that guy, the guy with better than 20/20 vision.  The guy that could tie on a fly in the middle of the night’s darkness without use of a headlamp.  The guy that would often give my fellow fishing buddies a hard time about getting old, etc.

It all started a couple of weeks ago.  One of my fishing partners and I arrive riverside pre-dawn to catch the early morning hatch before a day of work begins.  The moon is still high in the morning sky. Waders are on, rods put together and the line is through the guides.  We both select what we think the fish will be hitting on first thing in the morning.  Small, 22-26 Trico flies.   
My fishing buddy hands me the fly of his choice and humbly asked me to tie it on for him as he knows with no natural light, it will be a difficult task for him to do.  I offer him a few jabs about getting older and eagerly take the fly from his fingers.  I begin to thread the tippet through the hook eye. After a few unsuccessful tries, I make note that the hook eye must be filled with glue.  While trying to clean the small hook eye, the fly falls to the ground.  Now, you can imagine this, two grown men, on hands and knees with head lamps a-blazing, looking for a size 24 Trico fly.  Not because the fly was so costly or took so long to tie, but because it could be the fly of choice for today’s fish. You never do know….

Not finding the fly, we select a different fly from the box, the tying on process begins again.  Ok, this type 5x tippet is much too big, let’s go with 6x.  After trying a few times, with 6x, we decide to yet again, clean the hook eye….  Many attempts were made, and we decided that the fish would not be able to see such a small fly in low light conditions, so I tied on a size 20…  It worked.
This experience of not being able to tie a fly on really hit me… I am aging, just like everyone else around me.  It is kind of funny how we recognize others aging process, but seldom see ours as clearly.  The day ended very well.  We hooked and landed many a fish that day, but not in early morning on a size 26 Trico’s.

Getting older simply means, we approach the water more wisely, cast with reason, achieve perfect presentations/drifts and catch many more fish than we did in our youth…  Fish on.

Dry Fly Indicator Leader

This Dry Fly Indicator Leader was first created for a loyal customer of ours that had failing eyes.  He loved throwing small flies to rising trout, but had no way of tracking the fly as his eyes were getting worse with each passing year.  Since that first leader was developed, we have sold thousands of this same leader design.  Many to repeat customers as gifts for their aging fishing buddies.  
The fisher is to attach 3-5 feet of tippet to end of leader.  You simply watch the general area around the tip of the leader, when you see a tail, or a swirl, really any water disturbance at all, you set the hook.  
This Furled Dry Fly Indicator Leader will quickly become a favorite of yours.
