where and what for

u may already know from past posts but mosquito lagoon in canaveral national seashore is one of my all time favorite places in the world. im going camping tomorrow thru saturday so i thought i would post up a few pics of the lagoon and what we will be fishing for (the king of all fish, the redfish). if you click on the map at the top you can see where we will be camping. jones canal, campsite #6. the other pics are of a school of reds and a redfish tailing (the best sight in the world). hopefully it wont be too cold and the fish will be on the flats.

sunday after church, vince and i went over to lake toho for a couple hours. caught about eight bass. not too bad since we had a front move in the night before. jerah will be glad to know that we released all the fish including the ones in the picture.

saw thousand of ringneck ducks rafted out in open water. heard a lot of gun fire from the north east side of the lake. hard to focus on fishing when there r that many ducks flying around but somehow i managed.

fly tying

i always wanted to learn how to tie my own flies. ive been fly fishing since i was in middle school, mostly for bass and bluegill and trout a few times. anyway, for christmas i got a bass pro shop gift card from my brother and sister in law (thanks guys) and decided i would finally learn to tie flies. so i got a fly tying kit a new 5 piece travel fly rod. here r my first attempts at tying flies and my first fish on my own fly. hes not big but im proud of him! from top to bottom; caddis fly, woolly booger, and winged ant (from this angle you can only see one of his wings). the one in the bass' mouth is a pattern i made up myself, which made catching him double fulfilling.

this pic comes from a guy on the florida waterfowler forum. this is how ohio state wished things had ended up last night
