I Got My Tail Kicked

White River Flyshop Newsletter

May 2014


I am sure most of you have had this experience—getting your 'tail kicked' by the person fishing downstream or upstream from you—but perhaps not, because you are such excellent fishermen that you 'always' catch the most fish.  For me, sometimes I am the windshield and sometimes I am the bug—said for you Mary Chapin Carpenter fans.   (If not a fan, google it and look it up.)

This last week, my wife and I walked into the cold water of Taneycomo to catch a few fish on our way home from Bull Shoals.  Wasn't suppose to rain—but of course it was!!   My wife is a novice—just two years of some experience on the stream.   I tied on what I hoped would be two great flies, and on my first cast I had a fish.  Wow!   Look at me, I am a hero!   However, things then slowed down.  Several casts later with the same flies and no fish.  What happened?

Then what appeared to be a beginner walked in just downstream of us.  Could hardly cast a fly.  Threw  his cast sidearm.  His casting was mediocre to say the least.  But then he proceeded to catch fish after fish.  He had no idea how to land a fish.  I was afraid he was going to break his rod several times as he bent it double getting fish off his fly and back into the water.  He caught a fish on 'almost' every drift.  The only reason I say 'almost', is that I had to watch my drift some of the time!!  He probably caught a fish on every drift!!

Meantime, with my superior skills and knowledge, my wife and I had only caught a few.   My wife was watching all of this.  After 42 years of marriage, my approval rating was dropping to that of a Congressman.

So being the noble person I am, I shouted downstream, “Man you are slaying them!”  “What are you using?”  This was said, in desperation, of course.  I didn't want my marriage to break up after 42 years.  He replied, “a maroon midge emerger”.  Immediately, as a guy, I am processing what in the world is the color maroon?  So I tied on, for my wife or course, the only maroon midge emerger I had.   Immediately she hooked up with a good fish.  After several minutes of fighting the fish it broke her line.  Obviously the fish wasn't concerned about saving the marriage.

Well, I struck up a conversation with the guy downstream.   He was great.  He had only been fly fishing for a year or so.  He was an experienced hunter and outdoorsmen but had not been fly fishing very long.  I looked at his equipment and it had all been purchased at Bass Pro.  His waders, his rod, and his reel.  That made me feel very good.   So I moseyed downstream and asked if I could look at his fly.   He said, “Of course.”  The fly had been hammered.  Not much left.  Just a small hook with about two turns of thread and a little dubbing.   His comment to his buddies was, “This is the best day I have ever had fishing.”  

While we don't always have all of the right answers, we want you to have your best day on the stream! Be sure to check out our free fly fishing classes and fly tying classes.  

Call 913-254-5200 and ask for the fly shop to schedule.


CatfishSeminars May 31 @ 1:00pm

Catfish Seminar on May 31st at 1:00pm



"Captain Catfish" aka John Trager and Steve Green from TopCat Fishing Tackle will be conducting seminars on catfishing local waters.

John Trager specializes in targeting catfish within river systems and has developed specialized techniques that allow him to consistently put his clients on both numbers and quality fish.

Steve Green specializes in targeting catfish in lakes. Again, as a guide, he has to put his clients on fish, so he has developed techniques that work day in and day out on lakes that allow him to do just that.

Having both of these catfish specialists together at the same time will give our guests the opportunity to glean information from them that will allow them to be successful in their outings regardless of the waters they are targeting.

The plan is to have each of them present on each of their specialties for 30-45 minutes, and then follow up their presentations with a question and answer sessions with the seminar attendees.

A Day at Camp

I'd like to share a special moment with you.....

Imagine for a minute, where Kids with Cancer and other Illness can go and be kids for a week. No Doctors, No worries, Just fun.  A place where kids, can just be kids.

I had the recent opportunity to visit such a place. Camp Quality, a camp where kids, just for a week, can forget that they are dealing with life threatening illness and have loads of fun. The theme that week for camp was “Imaginarium”. As I spent Wednesday volunteering I was overwhelmed with emotion at the sight of all of the campers as well as companions doing what normal kids do. Having Fun. Activities included Fishing, Canoeing, Paddle Boating, Crafts, Face Painting, A Zip Line, A Game Room and many, many other fun activities. As a Fishing Lead here at Bass Pro Shops, I get to do a lot of fun and rewarding activities. But I can honestly say, none have been more rewarding than spending a few hours volunteering to help with the fishing activity. To be able to share a few hours in a Child's life, particularly one who is dealing with such traumatic issues, is by far the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I want to personally thank Ray Delia, Crystal, Joyce and ‘ALL ‘ of the other volunteers and companions as well as the Campers for allowing me to be a part of camp Quality and for allowing me to IMAGINE. 
“No one can do anything about the quantity of one’s life, But, ALL of us can do something about the Quality “ 
Camp Quality
