Tim Romano just got back from a fly fishing tarpon mission in the Florida Keys and Miami – to call his fishing report and slide show epic… is an understatement.

“My trip to Key West last week was a nutty one: two rods broken, three falls by one guy off the bow, a destroyed rental car, night fishing for tarpon, and a few new species in the bag.”

Arkansas River Fly Fishing Report: April 12, 2013

Based on the Arkansas River report from April 6th, a return trip was required.  This time we decided to try a new section of the river and fished the lower Ark between Cañon City and Cotopaxi.  The weather was about the same – chilly with moderate and sporadic wind... and then the hatch WENT OFF.

Product Spotlight: The Smethurst Stone Bomb

Here is what Adam Trina, Owner of the Montana Fly Company has to say about the Bomb Squad patterns:

“Most nymph patterns on the market were either no-bead patterns or single-bead patterns, and most of the single-bead patterns were brass, not Tungsten,” said Trina.  “The majority of Frank’s Bomb patterns have 2 Tungsten beads, and are designed to ride hook up, allowing the angler to use them as their lead fly, right on the bottom, minimizing the need for split shot.“

Adam pointed out three things that really stood out and that caught his attention when he initially evaluated the pattern:

1) There are two tungsten beads on most patterns, with one bead being smaller than the other to give a taper to the thorax. 

2) They are designed with the weight positioned on the hook in a way that makes the hook ride up, minimizing snagging on debris.

3) The patterns use Sexy Floss exclusively because of the vibrant sheen, increased flexibility, and better UV resistance over regular rubber.
