A Rough Year for Finding Waldo

Posted 06-19-2012 at 12:32 PM by Hardyreels

We have been fishing the same area for a few days now and yesterday were gifted with some fantastic weather conditions ranging from warm sun to a rather furious storm. I managed to travel ahead of the storms save for a tremendous blow on the big river. When facing sustained and gusting a head wind that whipped the river into 1.5 - 2 foot chop I was able to run back branches with plenty of trees lining the banks and so able to dodge most of the bad stuff. As we made a run for cover I had to guide...

Why are Salmon Flies so Gaudy in Color?

Posted 05-03-2012 at 01:49 PM by Hardyreels

That was a question posted to the thread I ran in the Alaska forum threads about Pattern Productivity. When I tried to answer the question my post turned out to be a little long winded so I have copied it to here. I'm going to add a couple pictures here to help in making some of the things I said more colorful also.

Fishing Streamers in Less Than Perfect Conditions;

Posted 04-19-2012 at 01:29 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.

Something I Posted to a Thread;

Posted 04-04-2012 at 07:40 PM by Hardyreels

I wrote this into a thread that ask members about where their dream fishing destination would be. Things have a way of being buried and lost in a thread after a while so I am copying the words to here where they might be found from time to time. I am aware that I get a little philosophical at times when I write or say something but I say what I know more often than writing what I think.

Anyway, here's some copy:

You folks who read the threads and have 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 back...
