This post is just an attempt to share with those who read these entries as to what it is that I'm doing during winter. These past 3 winters have been warmer than even the 3 before them. Along with the warmer conditions there has been less snowfall with each progressing year. When you see pictures of the cabin try to remember that the snow you see piled around the sides is that which fell from the roof and so appears to be deep. Actually there is about 2.5 feet of compacted frozen snow on the ground...

Pt. 2 - Each Winter Is Different Things Are Changing.

Posted 03-17-2016 at 06:18 PM by Hardyreels

It's been three years now since I got serious about handling my own freight needs. In part this was driven by fuel expenses which drove the cost of having someone haul heavy loads for you up to 32 cents a pound. That's 320.00 per thousand pounds........... So I bought into a sled build, this is kinda like a kickstarter thing. I put up the seed money which bought the materials for 2 sleds. I got my sled for the seed money invested and the second sled sold for 2300.00 so I got the deal.

I don't but just over the past 4 weeks I finally did something about a pile of 4 X 8 sheets of sanded plywood that I've been avoiding for about 3 years now. I just got tired of walking around them piled in front of the west windows I guess. So...... I ran some wiring and...

Saw A Thread Asking About Tying Leaders;

Posted 01-03-2016 at 02:25 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 03:42 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...
