The Waterworks-Lamson 2020 Lineup is almost here! With revamped reels and slick new improvements, this latest lineup of reels is sure to make a statement on the water. Below we’ll go over each individual reel and all of their main specs, along with what new changes have been made to their configurations.
The Lil’ Kim
The Lil’ Kim has an excellent set of fish catching aspects. It is a mid-weight streamer that features a great blend of natural and synthetic materials. This fly is one of confidence pattern when chucking meat. The Marabou creates super lifelike movement while the palmer chenille underneath helps to keep the profile strong when wet. Ad the flash for some attraction and bam, tight line! The Lil’ Kim was also our top producing fly in our streamer fishing for trout video. Give it a look!
The Carp-It Bomb
The Carp-It Bomb is Matt Bennett’s pattern and an extremely effective carp fly. It is a buggy pattern that can represent multitudes of different aquatic species. It is a great fly for still water fishing because it will ride hook-up and slide along the bottom of any body of water. You can fish this fly with confidence knowing it will turn some heads and get eaten!
The Grey Hackle Yellow
This fly was recently shown to me by a customer in the store who has fond memories of how many fish it has caught for him. Today it is a hard fly to find commercially tied but really isn’t too difficult to tie. I have not yet fished this pattern but have great confidence after talking with this particular customer. I would fish it in smaller sizes during a solid PMD hatch or in larger sizes as a Yellow Sally imitation. The red tail is sure to encourage strong strikes
I just started using this trick, after a long morning in the water I was struggling to get my feet out of the neoprene booties on my summer waders. I look over at my buddy and he already had his waders off, camp shoes on, fly rod taken apart, and was eating a cold can of soup for lunch. I just sat there stunned until he noticed and came over to help me pry the booties off my feet. After some work I am free and said, “You know there is an easy solution for that.” I had no idea what he was talking about, so he went on to tell me about “The Bag Trick.” It is a simple trick really that works like a charm. All you must do is put your feet in plastic bags before putting them into your waders. Simple as that! Continue reading “The Bag Trick For Your Fishing Waders”
The Ghost Rider Booby Fly
This fly looks alright out of the water, but amazing in the water. The marabou pulses dramatically upon every strip. This pattern is a bit of an attractor pattern but can imitate a leech swimming if the fisherman slows the retrieve way down. This fly is best fished on a sinking line so that it will sink deep but avoid snags on the bottom due to the foam eyes. I like to tie it with a stinger hook as well if I plan on it being the last fly in my rig. The bottom line is that this fly has great action and can be fished many different ways.
