I have been city fishing every morning this week and have been having very good success. This morning was the best morning yet. I went to my honey hole this morning on the way to work. When I got down the bank to the river there were dozens of Gar sitting in the shallows. I only had a couple of clouser minnows on me. They were eager to take the fly but I could not set the hook. I had about 6 takes. I then remembered I had rope in the car. I went back up to my truck and found a piece of rope and cut off 4 in piece. I frayed it up and tied it on to the leader. Fish on !! I caught a half dozen or so before it was time to head to work. The rope floated so all of the takes were on the surface. It was pretty cool. It was really fun to watch them follow and take the fly. The only down side was getting the rope out of their mouths. Like a pair of pliers full of needles.
