"Get Hooked on New York"

Shiners and Gills on the flyrod Details
Name:Shiners and Gills on the flyrod
Created By:thorn168
Details:Went out yesterday evening with my 6wt fly rod to spend a little quality time fly fishing from shore. I started off with a #10 yellow stimulator and and hooked with a couple of gills feeding on mosquitos on the waters surface. I like the way the stimulator pulses in the water, after it get water logged and ceases to be a "dry fly". I changed over to my old standby of a number 10 eagle claw bait holder hook and a Berkeley Power bait honey worm (Yellow).

I worked the worm like a weightless jig and hooked up with over a dozen gills heavy just off the spawn. These gills where loaded! Then I had the good fortune to catch two very large golden shiners. They where jumbos! I had forgotten just how much I enjoy catching golden shiners on the fly rod.

Golden shiners attack the bait and fight like a trout.

I fished until sunset then packed up and went home...happy.
