Fall has fallen.....literallyπŸπŸ‚πŸ every leaf has left their branches and blanketed our entire yard!
And we all know what's on our doorsteps next here in the northeast......❄❄❄❄❄❄

For some fisherman the next few months are rough.... they are hibernating along with their boats. A moment of silence please....................
Yep they are wrapped up and until the spring thaw and open water returns.  
😁Don't get depressed,  keep in touch with your inner fishing mojo by ordering yourself something from Lakeside Flies. Get yourself an advent calendar and have some fun in December. Or a beautiful ornament for your tree. Follow Facebook for new flies, specials and more . Hopefully we can help you through!

For the "Hardwater Fisherman"  tis the season to be fishin!🎣🎣🎣🎣
And do some fishing with ice flies!

So what's all this about under the ice fly fishing you ask? 

Well let me tell ya.......


 While the boats are all snug in hibernation, the shantys are waking up! The open water sounds of boat engines will soon be the hard water sounds of an ice rippin auger. Hate it or love it. Truth is ice fishing in New England can be some of the most fun of the year. Those that are die-hard ice fisherman are gearing up for "their" season.πŸ₯Άβ„

It's new chance to fish bodies of water often not fished open water season. And also catching a great various of species like Trout, Bass, Perch, Pike, Walleye, Salmon and more.

Ice fishing with flies is often looked past or never even thought of. Its simple strategy using a variety of flies jigging under the ice to fool fish. Its the same strategy we use all season. Target what they want to eat. Forget the live bait and Swedish pimples and such. Try experimenting with different tactics. Challenge yourself to drop a fly below the ice. Often, you will see fish refuse the traditional ice fishing jigs such as a Swedish Pimple. Or not hit live bait. These are the picky fish that will often only be searching for that edible little fly you've just introduced them too. And they will strike more readily at that fly then some of the bigger traditional ice fishing jigs.

 So next time when you’re having a slow day, try tying on an "ice fly" and you may be surprised. And a small fly will catch those big fish! Nothing mimics the food that big predatory fish like to eat better than flies tied with mostly  natural hair, fibers and a bit of flash.

Testimonials from the guys that fish these flies all day while ice fishing , have proven they usually outperform the classic ice fishing jigs. But you won't know it till you try it yourself. 
Choose flies like scud patterns, damsel fly nymphs or tungsten jig nymphs that are heavily weighted and sink quickly.
