Re: The 2015 What Was Your Best Experience Of The Season Thread;

Hard to pin it down to just one.

Started the year off with a hike into an awesome canyon, but the fishing was just meh.

Re: Provo river spill

That oil has extremely high parrafin content. They have to transport it in heated trailers to keep it liquid. Should turn solid immediately upon contact with river and be relatively easy to clean...

Re: I'm new

Those suggesting joining a fly fishing club have obviously never been to Cut Bank, Montana.

Some of the smaller streams to the west/southwest of you would be great places to start flyfishing.

Re: South Fork Flathead River info?

I agree. I did the wilderness float last year and have no interest in doing it again.

Re: Required to fence or post private property?

It's unfortunate that so many people are inconsiderate enough to go places that don't belong to them (or the public) that people even have to post their property.

If it's not yours, get permission...

Re: Mr. Brown Trout's comeuppance

Ahh. You didn't say its innards were hanging out. It obviously was surviving enough to eat your fly.

Re: Mr. Brown Trout's comeuppance

I don't understand why there was no point in releasing it.

Re: when should you use the reel to fight a fish

You don't put the fish on the reel, the fish puts you on the reel.

Really, the fish will let you know if the reel is necessary. If he doesn't, it's probably not.

Re: Hidden Treasure

Yeah, the point of the expedition was to find some golden trout. I went in one day and out the next. There were a couple of lakes that I had intel indicating they would hold goldens. One turned...

PM Issues?

Recently I've gotten a couple of email notifications of a private message, but when I follow the link to my PM inbox, they aren't there. It's interesting, because when I do get an actual PM, I don't...

Hidden Treasure

This weekend I took a short trip to try to catch my first golden trout. It started with a 4-mile hike to the lake. This was the "trail" to the lake.

Re: FTB Advisors commercial -- why?

Because going to the effort and expense to film an "honest portrayal of flyfishing" probably has a negative ROI.

Re: Sad commentary on today's society

I'd agree that people assuming the worst in others and expecting others to act/think like them is a sad commentary on today's society.

Re: Jackson in Sept

When in September? September 1 is vastly different than September 30 in terms of water temp. Where are you fishing? Fishing at 9000' is vastly different than fishing at 6000' in terms of water...

Re: Why buy high end?

The main reason is so you can impress your friends.

That's not to say there aren't other reasons, but I'd be willing to bet that's the primary motivation for most high-end gear purchases.

Re: Streamer Fishing Issue

I strongly disagree for two reasons. One, you will be far more likely to break off a fish when you point your rod right at the fish. I often use relatively light tippet when streamer fishing...
