Re: Flies for western Wyoming?

In many of the streams and small rivers of that area the trout aren't particularly educated- often it isn't about fishing a pattern others have found effective so much as fishing patterns you...

Re: heading to Montana.

Many of the rivers in the northeast corner of the Park (Lamar, Slough Creek and Soda Butte), are still high and muddy during early to mid July. Pale Morning Duns, caddis, and golden stoneflies...

Re: Anyone ever tie with antelope?

It's a fair bit coarser than elk and deer, and like bigjim said it's very good for spinning muddlers and bass bugs. Given their dusty, windy environment many times the tips of the hair are broken...

Re: White River Hobbes Creek reel?

I've never been impressed with the quality of Bass Pro's fly fishing equipment. If you're looking for a quality reel at that price point, I'd strongly suggest the Ross Flystart- you can pick them up...

Re: fishing yellowstone, fly advise

May still be high and brown at that time, but if not the golden stoneflies should have started cranking. Stimulators, Madame-X, and other golden stone patterns in 8's and 10's ought to work pretty...

Re: Angling Community Frustrated by Steelhead Deal

It sounds like the hatcheries will still be releasing hundreds of thousands of fish to Puget streams in 2014 and 2015, just not the early winter strain- and I think the Wild Fish Conservancy makes a...

Re: Pike in my trout stream

According to Iowa's DNR website both brook trout and northern pike are native to streams in the northeast quarter of the state.

I'm not really interested in the ethical debate, but I do like...

Re: What is up with this trout?

I've done a lot of snorkeling in clear streams throughout the south, and it isn't uncommon to watch rock bass and smallmouth change their body coloration and patterns to match their surroundings. It...

Re: Pike in my trout stream

To my knowledge pike are native to northern Iowa, trout aren't. During the early 20th century, a lot of time and money was put into removing undesirable fish (pike, gar, bull trout, carp, suckers)...

Re: Westslope vs. Yellowstone vs. Golden

There shouldn't be westslope cutthroat in the Bighorns, but many of the lakes in the region are planted with hatchery cutthroat- that some of the fish would be of mixed ancestry isn't outside the...

Re: Anyone ever done a "natural" Aquarium?

If you're just starting out, your best bet would be to contact your state fish and game agency. They'll be able to provide regulations- some states have severely restricted bait collection, in...

Re: What is up with this trout?

A muscle or nervous issue may explain the pattern- fish muscle tissue is arranged in relatively straight lines (think the "flakes" of a fish fillet), and I know some fish wind up with dark bands...

Re: The latest on didymo

I think it's great scientists have been given the time and resources to learn more about didymo and its blooms- it's tough to make informed management decisions without information.

Re: MT Yellowstone and Bears

My understanding is firearms are allowed in Yellowstone, but you must abide by the laws of the state you're in (whether the Wyoming portion of YNP, Idaho, or Montana). Add in the complexity of...

Re: hooks for largemouth

The Gamakatsu B10S is my go-to warmwater hook for largemouth and smallmouth. TMC 8089 and the Dai-Riki # 810 are both nice hooks as well. The Mustad #3366 is a good, cheap, all-around warmwater...

Re: The best flies I've tied so far.

Nice work, especially with the spun-hair head on the sculpin, that can be a tough technique to nail down. Same with the upright, divided hair wings- it can be tricky, and you pulled it off well. ...
