At another lake, I caught a rainbow down deep with a Coney Leech. It really should be called a Minky Leech as I had tied it with longer mink fur. Mink has more action then rabbit. My cats also like the strip of fur as I find it in all sorts of places in the house.
My favorite rainbow lake has been recently invaded by pumpkinseed. With MNR's approval I am removing as many as I can catch. I have a wet bag and I put them in and take them home for the raccoons. It is OK fishing with the 3wt. This winter I shall make a 1 wt fly rod to continue my ethnic cleansing in style. Please do the same. Many readers of this blog know what lake I am talking about. It is one of the OFS's adopted lakes in which we did supplementary stocking a few years back.
