Little Miami Gar Fishing
The other shop employee’s and I have been doing a bit of Gar fishing on the Little Miami due to the recent heat and the easy access to plenty of Gar.

We have been getting on the water about 7:00 a.m. and fishing until about 9 or 10. Rope flies tend to work really well for Gar since their long beaks are very tough to penetrate with a hook. The rope flies work because Gar tend to roll with their prey once they have attacked. The rope fibers become tangled in their many small teeth. We undo the rope and release them, no worse for the wear!
