I took my wife to a local lake to fish for crappies today. As I have for several years, the first fly I tie on is a "Crappie Candy". I caught several crappie and a largemouth bass. I like to fish this fly because it makes me think of Al Campbell. I honed my tying skills thru his online tying series here on FAOL. Because I lived in SD at the time, I was also fortunate to meet him at the Rapid City Scheels store and tap into some of his knowledge of the Black Hills. Many thanks to Al!
