Re: Lower Mountain Fork vs. Little Missouri

I fished the Little Missouri many, many years ago. It was so crowded we eventually packed up and left. I was not a happy fisherman that day. I've not been back and that is probably my loss. ...

Re: New York Pier Fishing (With A Fly Rod)

Randy,

I enjoyed this one as well. I plan to read my way through each story I find. I'm still having trouble thinking anyone will fish the Hudson. When I was there we were told to never do it....

Re: whose got kayaks?

Re: Direction of Fly Fishing?

Traditional! Quiet time on a secluded stream, lake, pond or creek. Getting away from the hip, the hop, and all the other clatter of today's world. Give me an ol' favorite rod and reel. Something...

I've fished for peacock bass while in Panama and found it a great sport with some great tasting fish at the end of the day. But I've got to ask what is that orange fish? I've never seen...
