The Longest Day

Posted 06-22-2012 at 03:53 PM by milt spawn

I knew the window would be open longer than any other day this year, so I planned for an epic day of dry fly fishing. Loaded the gear the night before, got up early with coffee and the cooler and took off. Arrived at the trailhead and proceeded to rig up and... realized I had used my 4wt reel on a stillwater and thus had a intermediate full sinker spool on it! Well, so much for the dry fly action. Fortunately I'm not a purist and had nymphs and indies with me so I settled on an epic day of short...

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...

Fly fishing at depth

Posted 05-30-2012 at 12:02 AM by fisher46

Im interested in some other techniques for fishing a fly at depth past 20'.Particularly Stripers, Smallys and largemouth.-other specie's techniques would be interesting too.- I've used a set up w/ t14 and 100lb braid running line for Stripers. I used the 100' because its diameter is far easier to figure then the smaller lbs. It was sensitive but, Ive only done it a couple of times w/ limited success.

It had to be done....

Posted 05-22-2012 at 12:23 AM by ak allen

I had to go back to work today.... it sucked. Kept trying to tell myself things like... it's only s 4 day week, or Wednesday is my birthday, or it'll break up the day a little. Nope all false motivation. It just sucked.

On a more positive note, after dinner I got all the trees cut down that were in the path of the circle drive I'm working in putting in. Now I just gotta chop them up, stack the wood, and haul away the brush. The on to stump removal, and laying rock. Should make...

Kicking Myself

Posted 05-19-2012 at 12:54 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well I was all set to do a float tomorrow. Then this morning while taking the cover off the boat to check and make sure all was good to go I noticed what I had forgotten. My trailer registration had expired at the end of April.

I had been out of work since December and was coming down to the wire on moving to the family lake in Kansas so I did not renew the registration just in case I was leaving. Then at the last minute ( actually 4 days before the move) I got a great job. So excited...
