Vise Vices / Tying for Spring 2019

Anyone still up and taking nourishment around here?  Time to fill the gaps in the fly boxes!

Playing around with some Zack's {Thurman} Bloodgeyser Midges on size 16

And some panfish foam spiders.  I admit it.  I love bluegills at sunset with a fly rod!

I had some great days fishing in NW NC in October and November.
Swinging streamers is awesome in the fall for fish that really get aggressive, brookies and rainbows especially.

Hey. I'm Jim Dussias from south Florida, I also live part time in NC near Boone.
I've been an avid fly-fisher since about age 10. I primarily fish the Everglades for snook and tarpon but also do some trout fishing when I'm in North Carolina.

I had a few excellent days this past fall in NW North Carolina.
I have a video of a bit of it on my YouTube channel: Jim Dussias
I live part-time in Ashe County and most of the time in south Florida.

The Asylum / Fall fishing in NC

Well, it is finally starting to look like fall is coming to the NC mountains. As the water cools, I will switch from fly fishing for bass and bluegills to fishing for trout. The trout fishing will be fun from now until there are so many autumn leaves in the water that fouling on the leaves becomes a problem. Even then the fishing will remain good in pools and runs that are not too choked up with leaves. A lot of the streams here switch to catch-and-release on October 1st, but that's OK by me.
The Current / NEW RODS

Who has a new rod, and what are your impressions? I wonder if anyone has a Orvis Helios 3 yet and if those rods are living up to the advertising claims. Or, who has jumped on the Retro-Rod band wagon and gone back to a fiberglas rod after years of carbon?

I am still pretty much an Orvis Superfine carbon guy, but I am curious about what's new and terrific.

Haven't been out yet but I'm getting everything buffed up and ready.  Had a panic because I couldn't find a soft case fly wallet with most of my larger nymphs and streamers (later season & bass - but it was still missing!)  Just found it tonight.  Whew!

Of course, I never got near as many flies tied as planned.  I'm hoping to get a bunch of foam hoppers added to the arsenal before summer.
The Asylum / 2018 Trout Season

Well folks, Spring has sprung, and the 2018 season is upon us!!!

I spent the last 3 months running coyotes with hounds, all the while keeping a close eye on the Catskill Trout Streams... I'm very happy to report, that all I've seen, appear to be in great condition!!!!! A little high, but clear!!! It appears the slow melt off and light rains, kept things in check. Now, if Mother Nature will keep the Spring rains light and frequent?

Good Luck, My brothers & sisters...!! Tight Lines!!!
