You folks who read the threads and have done so for years might think that every now and then I write something worth while. Sometimes I think I write things that are worth while too

A fellow put up a post where he told of catching some really nice trout in a small river where he generally finds only small trout. He named the river and I posted to his thread telling him that although it sounded like a great day he should be wary of divuldging his sources for good fishing. We posted...

Fishing Streamers in Less Than Perfect Conditions;

Posted 04-19-2012 at 02:29 PM by Hardyreels

Recently we have had some threads where members are querying streamer fishing. With all the people out there floating Indi Rigs and dropping nymphs from a big dry I still believe that to be a successful streamer fisherman is The Holy Grail of the fly fisher. I must include being a master on the dry fly to the Holy Grail club also. I think that those two styles of fly fishing; streamer & dry, are the two types of our sport that require the most dedication to master. Yes, almost anyone can catch...

Trouble In Paridise................. ..

Posted 11-20-2012 at 07:47 PM by Hardyreels

Where to start?

That's what has kept me from writing for so long. It's been a long while since May and so much to tell, are you ready for a 5 part Blog entry? Good, here we go............ You may notice that some photos in Part One are a recap from a previous entry but I ran them anyway because I had no others to fill in with. The title for this series of entries is based on the premise that Alaska is indeed Fisherman's Paradise, for me it has been but there has been a troubling trend...
