Flow

Posted Yesterday at 02:34 AM by jslo (Mendless Drift)

I had a couple hours free today, and chose to spend them on my home river. A few random thoughts:

*I fished an "old" hole of mine. This particular section a massive forest fire pretty much trashed a few years ago. I used to hammer it in there, but haven't caught or even tried in a couple years. Today I caught 6 or 7 nice fish! Browns and Bows. Just like the old days. Fun. Great to see this stretch coming back to life.

tippits and leaders

Posted 09-17-2014 at 11:17 AM by tennisgeorge

Why use a tippet at all? Why not just tie the leader to the line? For that matter, why also use backing?
Why not just tie the line to the reel then lleader to the line?
If using a tippet, what length should it be?

An Afternoon of Dry Fly Fishing on the Green

Posted 09-07-2014 at 06:48 PM by mcnerney

The weather looked great, so I decided to go out wade fishing this afternoon on the Green at one of the local public access points. I got to the river and found that I had the whole thing to myself, that is always a good feeling. I decided to use a Chernobyl ant with an ant as a trailer.

Here was my weapon of choice:
