SeaducerX (Luciano Chavez’s Texas Treat for Bass)

The resulting fly is ample in size to attract a bass but it is also very light and I expect that I will be able to cast it on my 5wt with no problems. We’ll have to see how it fishes though. I am kind of eager to go back to the lake this weekend and try some of these experiments. I’ll see what other experimental flies I can come up with before then.

EDIT: It has come to my attention that this fly pattern is essentially a cross between a Whistler and a Seaducer fly.

Alaskan Fly In Fishing (Faith in the Odds)


“…think twice about the tip for the bush pilot if you ever go a-fishing in sunny Alaska (or anywhere that requires a fly-in)”

Women Fly Fishers at Rogue Angels (You know enough is enough!)

As someone that works long hours and fantasizes about finding time to be on the water and be connected to ‘the moment’, I find it exasperating and a little off putting to come across this never ending string of beautiful women, and women who could fish circles around me. What the hell! I mean, if I tried casting with a two hander that way, I would have piercings and a new unintended image for sure. 

It has been fun to highlight Rogue Angels and women’s FF clubs etc. But, as much as I want to beleive these sites are enhancing the sport for women…I mean come on..this  might as well be Hooters Goes Fly Fishing. These sites contain all the appeal trigger points: drop dead gorgeous women, beautiful smiles, even more beautiful fish, the high end gear we all wish we could afford, primo locations and that inevitable feeling of ‘geeze, just invite me to come along just once’ (that’s what my 19 y/o says; I have to be more careful). The shots are beautiful and the women are amazingly vital and in love with ‘the moment’. It just goes to show the power of a pretty face, a lovely smile and a sexy fish. I love it! 

No, seriously, I know these women are for real. I believe they swung the fly, they felt the pluck, they played the fish and their faces always show the collective power of that connection. I am always smiling, not just from their beauty, but because I get it. We all do. Cool!
