Re: Tippet rings?

Tippet rings work great for both drys and nymphs.

Nothing wrong with the micro-swivels for nymphs and streamers either. I know of lake fishermen that use the micro-swivels instead of adding a...

Re: Winter Flies

Larry, I agree, it's frustrating to get a good fish on and the second they head for current they are off the hook. Thanks too for the good suggestions. I will need to make a list and see what...

Here is a blurry picture where I was trying to show the deeper hook-up of the wide gap hooks.

Winter Flies

I hiked into a small creek again last week, but my camera wasn’t with me, so no pictures of that creek.


The weather had been 40-50 degrees all week so I took a hike up in the woods to give a...

Re: Driftless trip report, a little different this time.

The small midges do great for getting a strike from fish in the winter, but not so great for keeping the fish on. The small bend on them makes for a very light flesh or surface engagement that pulls...

Re: Looking back.... How green were you?

I'm still green, and I have been fly fishing for 40 years! I have more sloppy habits and bad casting in my background than I will ever overcome in the next 40 years. I fish a lot of small streams...

Re: Your Worst Fall

Yes, I confess, I fall in the water all the stinking time. I swim just about every water I fish!

As I get older I fall more so I got a wading staff, but I have an even worse memory than my...

Re: Mountain Cutthroats

You're right, Ard, on the closed gates being a blessing for uncrowded waters, and I do hike in to several places past them. I was mostly thinking of my frustration last year on a different stream....

Re: Mountain Cutthroats

Thanks, everyone, it was a great day to get out. I was surprised to find some fish in shallower pools and runs. That is where most of the ones that hit the dry fly were hanging out. The low water...

Mountain Cutthroats

After I left the reservoir I was going to go to a larger river, but at the last minute I decided to hike into a small stream instead. With the thaw that is going on I figured I could get into the...

Fishing Ice Off

Rather strange feeling today as I stopped to fish a small reservoir here in Southeast Idaho. It felt more like the beginning of spring rather than the prelude to winter. After I stumbled down the...

Re: It's LUNCH TIME!

If I am going to be close to my vehicle, or if I want a hot meal when I get back, then I do a little solar cooking. I park with my windshield facing the sun and put up my solar shades. Then I slide...

Re: It's LUNCH TIME!

I usually carry a variety of things depending on how far I am hiking etc. The usuals are snacks like trailmix, jerky, protein bars, or granola bars. Sometimes several of those.

For water, I...

Re: What kind of trout is this?

It may be a brown with fungus from spawning stress. Can't see very well in the video.

I'm Cindy.

I too can't remember all of your names. So maybe the best thing is to put my name in my signature line. If I can find where the signature line feature is on this forum!

Re: RMNP Mid Oct

Even though I looked for a stretch that was a little harder to get to, I was really surprised not to see footprints. As it was the fish acted like pressured fish in skinny clear water. They were...

Re: Why Women Make Better Anglers

Fishing in harsh conditions is also not gender based. It is more goal or objective based.

If the girl is out there fishing because you want her to be there with you, then for sure she is going...
