Roger and I very much enjoyed meeting everyone at the meeting yesterday - thanks for having us.
Fishman - that sounds like a winning Crappie fly rig. I never tied any Green Weenies but I've read good things about them so I'm gonna tie a few up for the next outing. I've got plenty of Hare's Ears so once I make up some Weenies I'm going to try that same rig. I've got Rio Type V sinking line for one of my 4 weights, and also intermediate for 4 and 3 weights, both with short leaders of 4'-5' that might work good with that rig but I'll have to be on guard for any light strikes while it's on the way down. I made a couple of ultra-lite fly rods from 1-3 weight that are all under 9' so leaders longer than 8' can get a little unwieldy. I came up with a new jig based off of Ward Bean's Crappie Jig (http://www.warmwaterflytyer.com/patterns6.asp?page=8
) but I used a chartreuse marabou tail, white body, and tied in 4 herls over the back and added a red hen neck feather collar - I think that'll work well the next time out. I used a 1/64th jig on a #8 hook.
What kind of strike indicator did you use? I started making my own out of foam and an o-ring because those commercial kind that you twist your leader into never seem to stay on, or in one place for me.
Anyway sorry fella's for getting so long winded but I love talkin 'bout bream.
