    Crossed paths with this one two days ago (water was low 50's). Big open shoal over weeds, small goat leech:

    Hey Ford, was that a "surprise" catch? Not bad. Have I been where that fish lives?

    Not a surprise and not a place you've been. If he lived there that would be one helluva nightmare.

    Cone head buggers will work fine. a black body is my most productive color. Having some crawfish colored buggers in your arsenal would also be a good idea.

    The cone size should match the size of the hook. I do not have a chart with cone/hook size chart, but there may be something out there. Your local fly shop should be able to answer that question for you. I usually use beadheads or just wrap .025 lead 20 times around a #4 streamer hook. If you do the lead, wrap the lead around the forward portion of the fly. Be sure to leave room around the eye of the hook to tie off your fly.
