Re: Best fishing town in america?

Craig Montana, where else can you catch 18-22 inch fish all day until your arm is sore and hang out in a great setting where there are more fly shops than bars, gas stations, motels and schools...

Re: Why I Hate Waders

Waders can be a pain and I only use them when I have too. I really liked the boot foot waders for steelhead/ winter fishing. Simms made a pair with muck boots that were awesome, I wore them out and...

Re: Somerset Show - Fly Casting or Tying Classes - Are They Worth it?

I've gone to Somerset for 3 years and I like the tying demo's. You can watch them for free, they project it on a screen and you can see all the steps. You can also go watch professional tiers tie...

Re: Have you ever broke a rod? How's Montana?

I've broke rods often, usually it was when I was fishing streamers and fishing 1 or 2x tippet, and not on fish but on snags. I would recomend a 9ft #5 weight , there are some big rivers here where...

Re: 2012 Goals

My 1st goal is to mellow out and enjoy my days rowing a drift boat, and enjoying the people I'm with. In past years I might have been too competitive and didn't feel like I did my job as a guide if...

Re: IF you use an indicator--what kind and where?

Tailwater systems with deep, fast moving water, and there aren't any trout within 5 feet of the surface, I use thingamabobbers. They adjust easy, don't resist wind, and are easy to tell if they are...

Re: Is anyone here new to fly fishing?

I wouldn't practice casting with flies. Tie on a piece of yarn at the end of your leader, 6 or 7 feet. Do you here a snap, or whip sound? If so then you probably aren't waiting long enough on your...

Can't miss towns well here it goes.

Re: Trip planning to the Rockies

I'm biased and like big rivers in MT. I also fish 90% dry flies so that eliminates a lot of areas where people push bobbers (a.k.a. strike indicators). If you can't make it to western MT...
