I actually made a return trip to the flatwater impoundment where everybody was so obnoxious in the early trout season. My logic was that bass season having opened and the rainy weather would keep any possible crowds to a minimum. I was right. There were only two other fisherpeople there and they both left. I had the place to myself to flail the water, trying different streamers that I've tied. I had a wooly bugger type streamer of my own creation that I tied on a jig hook. I caught one foot-long rainbow on that thing before I snagged, and lost, it. That was the only fish I caught, but it was an enjoyable day having had success on an artificial that I devised and tied. It's getting to the point where I have to debate whether I want to use a spinning rod or fly rod anymore.

No it will not, the only thing that will happen is the fish that want the white/red combo will eat it and the ones that want red/yellow will not... Fish either one with confidence, its a great pattern. Just try to keep it sparse.

Is the Mickey Finn a better stream or lake streamer, or does it matter? I tried one for awhile on the small lake and got some bluegills to follow it, but that was all.
