A couple of weeks ago I stopped by the Orvis Store in Pasadena and pickup up their Safe Passage Sling Pack. Before I was wearing a vest while Fly Fishing and had really wanted a sling pack, but I could not find one that I really liked. Then my friend Dan bought one of these packs and I had seen how much he like it, so I had to get one for myself. Let me tell you this is a great pack, and I love the style and versatility. So if you need a pack check this one out at Orvis!!!
After Work today I decided to go over to Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley down the street from my house. The Park has two fishing lakes and the fish tend to bite a couple hours after sunrise and a couple hours before sunset. So I grabbed my 5 weight fly rod w/ 4 pound test leader and headed over to the smaller lake which seems to hold more fish. I tied on a black leech imitating size 8 cone head woolly bugger and walked around casting along the edges only a few feet out. Remember only take the fish if you are going to eat them, otherwise please practice catch and release and don’t litter!!! I caught a couple of small 1-2 pound bass and a 3 pound channel catfish. I’ve caught many different kinds of fish at this lake; bass, catfish(summer), trout(winter), carp, blue gill, crappie, what I think was a kind of goldfish, and one mean red ear slider turtle. So if your ever in the Fountain Valley area swing by and check it out, its on the intersection of Euclid and Warner.
