Fly Night at Rainer and Noel’s

by Eric Estrada September 06, 2013

Our buddy Rainer invited a few guys over his place to drink some booze, tie some flies and hang out. So a few of us went over and had a ball. We got there slightly earlier than the fly tying would be going down, so we messed around with Rainer’s 3 and 5 wt fly rods in his back yard.

We used super top secret exotics fly pattern, and it was the ticket. We caught a variety of blue gills, peacock bass, midas cichlid, tilapia, in extreme conditions of wild fly line eating K9 creatures.


Here are some photos
