A fellow member of Warmfly.com found yall's awesome site. I checked it out and in seconds I was looking at Mississippi creek fishing…I love (fly)fishing Mississippi creeks, and it seems you guys do as well! Anyway, as my first post, I'd like to post a two day trip (an evening and a morning/afternoon) to a new creek that I found. It's a pretty long boat ride in the mothership. I bring along my native watercraft ulimate to sneak around quietly. This trip I was using my trusty 6 foot 3 inch 3 weight flyrod. I was using a tandem fly rig consisting of a #12 beaded nymph tied under boogle bug popper. The tide was great and the lack of rain made the creek clear. Anyway, enjoy guys. I look forward to seeing your posts and getting to know some of you.
I saw many of these flowers
The mothership- at the mouth of the creek, looking out toward the bayou. I got out really late as I didn't realize how long this boat ride would take.
Here's the bayou
I ended up getting a double catch, putting my little 3 weight to the test.
This fella was chasing minnows in the shallows and didn't stand a chance
This one ate the nymph
Looking up the creek…it doesnt look very “creek-like” but you'll see how it looked as I ventured up river
That's it for day one
