Here's the Pohonche Apple Picker, which apparently was a wee bit too close to bottom...

I think it is on backwards, now that you mention it and I look at the photo.  Hey, maybe backwards is the new forward?  Who knows.

I asked BW about that one time he said either way , large profile or slim.........

That makes perfect sense.  I prefer the larger profile, more flutter and more flash and more body and stays more true behind the flasher/blade. 

But I am sure both work just fine.......I worked at B-E Tackle for years back in the banner years.....Most of this stuff (especially all the bizarre colors) are designed to hook the fisherman, not the fish. 

 

I remember one old guy that never fished or bought ANYTHING other than various size black and silver Rapala.  Various sizes, floater, countdown, etc, etc.  He never fished with a spoon, fancy colors, dodgers, etc, etc ever.  He caught as many fish as anyone else, and won the spring derby one year also.

Huh! You're right! I guess that just goes to show that they will work either way! That fly was slim to begin with, but it seemed to work just fine!

Well it was a heck of a day and a great way to end our vacation. We didn't get the LOC winner, but we sure had a lot of fun trying!

I'll try to get some more videos up this week...

Oh in the steelie photo... havent used it in years. When I first bought the boat, we tried a center rigger.. it tangled constantly. We have dreams of finding a grill we can mount to it... maybe one day.

Nick and Theresa - A big "thanks" for sharing your Lake O fishing experiences online with us. The videos add a great added dimension - especially for those folks stuck at home or work :lol:   Glad things (conditions) finally improved for you at the end.

I have one of those flies. Being that it was tied by a Mr. Pohanche from PA :), it doesn't have enough material, the material isn't long enough, and the stem is too long to flip it the other way. I tried it!!!!

 

In either case it works the way it is. ...and the price was most definitely right!

I think of it as my smelt fly, instead of an alewife! Edited by Ruff Rider

I put together a video of the action of some of the lures we use most often and how they act underwater. I should have placed them closer to the camera, but I was afraid less than three feet away would damper the action.
