Re: What did you catch this weekend?

Yesterday I fished for carp. I scouted some new water. The weather was great; it was such a wonderful day.

Re: Exhort your state's fishing

Washington: We don't have the blue ribbon trout streams that some states have. Large, non migratory trout are primarily found in stillwater here. We have many lakes that offer great trout fishing....

Dropping the Fly--Adapting to Different Conditions--A Video

Most of the carp I catch are 25-40 feet away. There are times when murky water, cloudy skies, and hard wind conspire to keep from seeing carp until I am very close to them. There are also times when...

Re: New scadden boat

I'm sure you'll love the boat! PFD's for sure. The only other tip is to not let it sit in your garage; get out and use it a LOT.

Re: Carp ??

Carp are big, strong, smart, and wary. They are the world's greatest sportfish.

Re: Carp in Low-Vis Water?

Try nymphs or egg patterns under an indicator. Gregg Martin in Idaho has really done a lot of this and has success.

Re: New to Fly Fishing; need advice on these rods

Think about how easy it will be for you to transport two piece rods. It might not be an issue and you may want to only get 4 piece rods.

I wonder if the "warranty" on a rod isn't a...
