Saw A Thread Asking About Tying Leaders;

Posted 01-03-2016 at 03:25 PM by Hardyreels

Often I see a thread asking a question and as I read replies I find that what I may want to say will be pointless. The answers come complete with internet links that will solve the needs almost instantly while my reply will simply get buried and forgotten. That's when I stop writing and move whatever I was about to post here to this blog area. It may not be read by the majority of users here but I have the peace of mind knowing I can always find these old memories. Who knows, to some these things...

Netting Fish

Posted 01-01-2016 at 04:42 PM by Hardyreels

In concept the use of a net to capture a fish already hooked by a fly is supposed to make the final stage of catching that fish easier. In my many years of fly fishing and I can now get away with saying many at this point so I have.

While the concept is good and can work very well to your advantage there are some things to know that will make the use of a net a better experience for both fisherman and fish. I have recently had a discussion with another guide and a very experienced...

A Guy Fishes Streamers & Get Skunked;

Posted 04-27-2015 at 02:40 PM by Hardyreels

The 2012 Bear Encounter;

Posted 04-12-2015 at 01:26 PM by Hardyreels

The Bear Encounter

It was August and as summer wound down the season had been pretty much a total bust for salmon. Almost every river from the Yukon in Western Alaska to here in my region was closed for the poor king salmon returns. Our Silvers were closed on many rivers as well.

During July I had became so desperate for fresh salmon I drove all the way to Chitna on the Copper River to try my hand at dip netting for sockeye. All I can tell you about this adventure is...

Fishing Streamers, Where & When Part 1;

Posted 03-14-2015 at 02:47 PM by Hardyreels

Sometimes I don’t know what will be the best way to explain something about fishing to other people. Should it be a nuts & bolts ‘How To’ kind of message or should it be related through a story. I can become easily bored with either methood and I worry when I start off writing something. Will it make sense? Like everything I write into the threads here this will be something that represents an opinion. It is my opinion but I reach this type of assessment through years of practice so I'll share...
