THE MUDDLER Minnow in its various incarnations is among the world's hottest fly patterns for trout as well as other species, but it's one important drawback. It floats well. That means your twitching remember will keep the fly in the surface rather than working it deeper. Prior to going fishing, to solve this issue, place some Muddlers in a smallish, saleable plastic bag with a tiny water. Roll the tote up to push the air out , then seal it. Stick at it in a vest pocket, and when you are ready to fish, your Muddlers will likely be pre-soaked and willing to sink. Just don't forget to take away the flies from your bag to let them air dry when you get home. Otherwise all you will end up with is a tote full of badly rusted hooks.ESSENTIAL COSMETICS THE MOST successful casting or trolling lures for just about any fish are often those who have had color added. And the most easy way to add any colour is by using nail polish, which you'll find in myriad nuances at drug stores. Lake trout and landlocked salmon, as an example, often respond vigorously to a brilliant reddish spot added in late fall and early spring, especially to your brass or copper spoon. Each bottle of polish comes with its applicator brush. making the job easy. You will also discover thinners, clear finishes, and polish removers usually, and about an identical shelf for less than you'd spend for an identical group of paint in the hardware store. But do not stop there. Nail polish has dozens of uses: fly tying head cement, coating frayed pole-guide windings, briefly patching pinhole leaks in air mattresses or outboard-motor gas lines, brightening the front bead on a rifle sight, and locking screw threads which other shrewd refuse to stay tightened, to name just a few. And also you could also do your nails.SIMPLE SHARPENER HOOK SHARPENING is a vital chore, but it is one nobody enjoys because it takes so much time, especially when you are working with a tackle box full of treble hooks. It's possible for you to make your own sharpener with a pair of chainsaw files, which will make the job go much faster, give good results with hooks down to about No. 6, and cost less than $5.Chainsaw files are fine, round files normally close to 1/8 inch in diameter, 7 to 8 inches long, and broadly available at most hardware stores. You will want a couple of exactly the same diameter taped tightly together at both ends with vinyl tape. Make sure both filing surfaces are lined up in the exact same direction. The groove where both files meet is the sharpening place, and two or three quick forward swipes along the point of a big bass-style worm hook or salt water streamer fly, for example, should do the task. In case you would like to get fancy, cut the 7-inch files in half -- a bench grinder was used by me for this -- and mount two of the sections right into a hardwood block handle with quick-setting epoxy. Keep in mind from splitting when in use, that the file sections should be bound closely together at the ends to help keep the area that is sharpening. By carefully triangulating a hook point with a diamond hone you will get better results, but that's a time-consuming procedure. Instead, your chainsaw file could make hooks acceptably sharp for most people that is a giant step forward, and in seconds.
