Cayuga 2/10

Recommended Posts

Little rough out there today, however landlocks were hitting. Did three over 22 inches and one 4 pound brown. Missed a few. Fishing flies 200 back with a small split shot a few feet ahead. I put the riggers down at a max depth of 10 feet but no takers, all top water action. I was fishing as close to the shore as possible. Best day I've had in a while, only trolled 2 hours.

A tandem 2 hook fly with a lot of buckskin on it. I tye my own as I find most do not have enough material. I run the sinker 3 feet in front of the fly in order to bring it down a little. We've had plenty days in the 12-20 fish range with this technique. However fishing is fishing lol.

Never heard of this technique 

 

 

Cool

Common in New England and the Adirondacks especially right after ice out.  Fast speed and a lot of times right in the prop wash.   Make sure you have a really good rod holder or hang on tight!!!

I prefer less gap in between the hooks with the rear hook facing upwards. When I tye my flies I try to imitate alwives so I use a considerable amount more material to entice fish with a meal worth catching. These are my preferences, I'm sure this pattern could work.

That looks like a commercial tie of a Grey Ghost, a classic Carrie Stevens Maine fly for Salmon and Brook Trout.  The NE flies are generally imitating smelt, or brightly colored, like the Mickey Finn:

These flies are usually 4-5" long, Size six  or four hooks.
