Air temps below 40 degrees F. Fish activity when I started fishing was NIL. I'm not sure what turned it around, but it ended up being a pretty good day of flyfishing. I ended up catching 27 Koi and 19 Goldfish in ~5 hours.
I had tied up microjigs with some new materials I had bought...UV Mottle Galaxy Mop Chenille, and Eggstacy chenille. I used one fly tied with Cheese colored Galaxy Mop (no tail). I caught a lot of fish on that, and it eventually fell apart. Next, I used one tied with Candy Pink Eggstacy, with a white rabbit fur tail. I caught a lot of fish on that too.
Here's some of the fish caught:
|This was the biggest Koi of the day. I've caught this one a couple times before.|
