Fly Fishing Lunch Hour Challenge


Chris Payne heads out to the creek during his lunch hour to try to find some panfish while fly fishing. During this outing he used an Orvis Battenkill 4/5 reel on an old Eagle Claw 2pc 5wt and slinging a foam spider with green legs.

The water in the creek ranges in this spot from about one foot deep to up to three feet near the ridge.

The looping he’s doing while the lure is drifting is to create additional slack in the line which slows down the current drift of the lure.
