    Fishing a la Mike Chell

    I don't know why my other thread got closed, maybe 13 pages is the limit?
    Anyway, since I also fish in other locations, I'll start a new one without the "Florida" designation.

    Vette ... If it doesn't rain, I'll be fishing tonight. Look for a black KIA "Soul" ...

    Just a sprinkle this evening. Didn't let it keep me from fishing.


    Just after I got there, a "Life Flight" helicopter landed on the highway. I hope it wasn't anyone we know.

    Nice going.

    Thanks for posting video.

    Work and traffic was tough today. I couldn't get to fishing spot before dark.

    Thanks guys. Dan, edited video makes it look like a fish every minute.
    I got to the water at about 5:20. Fished for about an hour.
    I missed a few fish, and edited out a few that I didn't hold up to the camera.
    But all in all, fishing the small creeks and outflows that no one else bothers with, is a blast for me.
    Lots of little fish that have rarely seen an artificial lure/fly.
    Every once in a while, there can be a deep hole with a surprisingly large fish in there.

    Nice leetle fishes there Mr. Mike. Nothing more fun than a fly rod.
    When is the best time to go fishing? Whenever you can go. Just do it!

    Got in late last night, Vett. Didn't even get online. I did get out, and I hit the same stretch, but a little farther up.
    I included the process of taking a picture (still shot) to illustrate the reason I don't take many. Dropping the camera is a real possibility.

    You sure can drop that fly wherever the heck you want it. I could see me spending a lot of time getting untangled from bushes.
    Cool video. Thanks for sharing.

    That's one thing that doesn't come across in the video, Dan. I'm walking in a flood control "bayou" or creek bed, with woods and embankment on both sides. Just over my head, the wind is whipping a lot faster than it is at the water's level. Getting the fly to go where I want it was difficult. The overhead part of the cast was being diverted, but once it dropped out of the airflow ...
    Well, you're only seeing the casts that caught fish. I spend a bit of time getting the fly out of the weeds on the riverbank, you can believe that.

    But thank you for the compliment. Being able to put the fly where I want it is no special skill, just 40 years of fly fishing.
