Re: Embracing the power of The Dark Side . . . (midges)

It makes sense to offer the fish what they want. Midges are small and simple to do, you might even save money... unless you're into midge saddles :rolleyes:
Welcome to the dark side. ;)

Re: Waders for real big guys

I know Cabela's has stout size in some of their waders, Orvis and Sage might also but I am not sure. Their websites should have the details.

Re: Fly Line's life expectancy

If you keep them clean and stored properly you should get years out of a line(under normal use). I only change one if it starts to crack, split, gets stiff or shows real signs of wear/fatigue.

Re: Depending upon your age, you can relate.

You're not embarrassed to go out front to get the newspaper in your boxers.
You realized you're making old people noises instead of laughing at them.

Re: Best hip, waist, or sling pack for under $60?

Cabelas will put such items on sale, something new every week or two. I would guess BassPro might do something similar. Next option would be the discount stores.

Re: Best place Online for hooks?

Dream Drift Flies is another local source and have a large selection of Montana Fly products. (As well as other lines.) They are in Thornton CO. and have been good to me.

Re: So many choices for Breakfast.

Apple pie for breakfast sounds great if you're a grown up, but could be trouble for the kids.

Re: How do you fish midges?

I use the three turn water knot to create the dropper. When casting you need to slow down and open up the loop, it helps reduce wind knots and tangles.
