Re: I barked like a dog

They both look like young Black Bears to me. Look at the stomach area. I saw the hump to but I think it's the angle and wet fur, and of course I could be wrong.

Re: 7'6" vs 8'6"

I suggest giving Jerry a shot at your fly needs. From the ones I have, I would say your not going to find anything out there equal or better. ...

Re: Skunked on U.P. Trout Lakes....and Need Advice

The State of Michigan has stocked both of those lakes with a lot of Brook Trout over the last decade. I also would guess that since you can drive up to them, they receive a lot of fishing pressure. ...

Re: Skunked on U.P. Trout Lakes....and Need Advice

Re: Backing choice

I know I have a couple of 30lb. 600 yard spools of Dacron around here in a box. It'll do for now once I locate it. Thanks for all the advice.
