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. I must include being a master on the dry fly to the Holy Grail club also. I think that those two styles of fly fishing; streamer & dry, are the two types of our sport that require the most dedication to master. Yes, almost anyone can catch...

Next Preseason Float.

Posted 04-19-2012 at 10:06 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Hoping to make it out on the river this weekend for at least one day and possibly two. The weather is supposed to be excellent on Sunday with Sunny Skies and mid to high 60's. Saturday is supposed to be a close second in terms of weather with high 50's to low 60's.

The other factor to pulling this of is water quality. After that fantastic trip on the 9th one of the upper tributaries blew out. The river went up 1000cfs. The water clarity went down but was still fishable. Then the weather...

Snake River Float 04/09/2012

Posted 04-11-2012 at 03:46 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Greg and I made it out for another float on the 9th. We could not have asked for a better in both weather and fishing. The past 2 trip the weather was a little cold and the fishing was a bit slow. But on Monday we had nice warm sunny conditions. In addition the fish were up and feeding on dries in three riffles that we stopped in. For the feeders we were fishing #18 and 20 BWO's and Adams. We also took about 4 fish on streamers.

It was truely awesome to get out and spend time working...

Second Float of 2012!

Posted 04-08-2012 at 05:13 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Okay, the second float of the 2012 season is in the books. Forum member rusty r, friend Greg and my self floated Wilson to South Park on the Snake River in Jackson Hole. We held off a day for some better weather which we got. Nice sunny day but with a good breeze blowing so it was a bit cooler than Mondays float.

Spent some time popping ice out of the guides in the morning. First few miles were fishless. But things did pick up by midday. The most productive flies were streamers, anything...

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:

Hello Fellow Dreamers,

I would like
