Thanks that's super helpful! Great info. I'll definitely stop in at Gates. Makes sense what you are saying re: the middle to the sides. I fish a ton out west (where I live), but never on the...

Re: North Platte Adventures

For those less knowledgable, (myself included!), why is the dropping of the flow such a difficult thing for the fish? Is it that it's less water to grow/feed in?

I'm curious as to the how/why of...

Re: Poudre

I know right where that is. Fun spot, and yes super spooky fish. Nice work!

Re: Laces vs BOA

BOA for me, I'll probably never go back.
