Just got back from a couple of hours casting at the dock. Hooked 2, but only landed 1.
Logan Lake has amazing growth rates based on the shiner population. It did totally winterkill a few years back but was, consequently, restocked immediately. It's really too bad that the lake is right beside the highway because it would make for a beautiful backcountry lake. There was some concern voiced by the "powers that be" that the shiners would get into Chartrand Creek, into connecting Guichon Creek and eventually into Tunkwa.Holy Balls !!! im glad to see there is some big ones in there again. I heard it had 90% killed a couple years ago. My biggest in there was a whopping 12/13lbs !!! but i think ones of that size arent around anymore but could be making a come back
Damn you Steve! Just went to their website and was forced to order a bunch of tungsten Nymph Heads and Fish Skulls! I hate Pay Pal, it's too easy! I hope you ordered some Steelhead Blue! No? Well you better log back on.I ordered them online:
I bought two packs of 10 in silver and copper in the smaller sizes.
I was planning on bringing them into my local fly shop to suggest that they stock them, if they prove to be good.
If you don't want to go through the headache of ordering them, and then being disappointed, I can always send you a few to try out before you commit.
They're only 6.95USD for every package. In the end, through Paypal, I paid about 18.50CAD for the two packs and shipping.
They had some appeal to me as a newer member of the tying community, because trying to build a head on a baitfish pattern is a little intimidating when you already have a habit of crowding the hook up near the eye (You should have seen my first Tom Thumb attempt -> UGLY).
Samples schmamples! LOLI offered to send you some samples to use!!!
Actually, I'm recently graduated and intentionally unemployed, so my bank account can't suffer the hit that all this fishing is placing on it. I spent the last $20 in my paypal on those Fishskulls. LOL
I might have to cash out my RRSP in Australia to pay for some more fishing.
Good to hear. That Dirty Olive has always been great in Logan Lake and it works elsewhere but not as regularly as at Logan. Go figure.Steve - i just got back from a weekend at Logan and gunmetal chironies and John's "dirty olive" both in size 12's were the ticket for us.
