Re: Face mask sun-shield?

I do prefer the non-deet alternatives, for sure. Fortunately mosquitoes aren't a big problem where I am, we get a month maybe when they are a problem, and there are only a problem where we fish. I...

Re: Who still uses a vest?

I hear ya John on wanting my tools available. I had a waist pack for years, went to a sling for a year, and then back to the vest. I like the idea of the sling, superior comfort, and its out of the...

I'm OK itchy, I use deet and a bandana if I need it. My beard is seasonal and the last thing I want on a hot summer day is a hairy neck ... or a turtleneck!

Re: Face mask sun-shield?

I was going to say that I could think of one, but then Rip doubled down!

As for the comparison to a head net, I don't see how an ultra thin piece of material that is relatively tight against the...

Re: Best fly fishing video ever!

The "set the hook" bit is spot on and hilarious! I don't remember how many times a learning fly fisher is told that when nymphing...set the hook! on every little thing. And of course the follow-up...

Re: Best fly fishing video ever!

Saw that a few days ago, I love it.

To me, I think his bits go a couple minutes too long, but he nails it on the satire. I've heard all these lines many times over. Particularly while sitting in a...

Re: I knew they'd stopped planting trout in Montana Rivers/Streams.

Its a really cool story if you read the whole account. Basically one incredibly forward thinking state biologist saved Montana's wild trout. Conventional wisdom said he was nuts, but believed that...

Re: Say wot??? $89.95?

I haven't been on here much lately and this is the kind of thread I really like. Good conversation, lively debate, a little honest smack down, and in the end all in good humor.

Like so many others...

Re: Hen Hackle Sulphur I like to fish dry

Really nice Walter. I bet this fly sits flush in the film, I imagine it is a great representation of a "still born" or even a spinner.

Re: Hold the rod where?

When dealing with basic tasks like changing flies, tying tippet knots, etc my rod goes under my left arm pit and rests on the forearm. It is instinct at this point. The hoop and Velcro thing has...

There is a really good thread going right now about the perfect 8' 4wt rod...you should read that, might get ideas.

Re: 3 Weight Rod Choice: 2 or 4 piece?

I've read more love for the Reddington CT than any other single rod, more the The One. I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

Last time read the regs of the Rattlesnake, you can fish up to the...

Re: 3 Weight Rod Choice: 2 or 4 piece?

Matrix, did you grow up in Missoula? Have you been back lately? I wonder how shocked you'd be by the number of people on the Root in the summer, its become one of the top 5 fished rivers in the...

Re: The quintessential 8ft 4 wt?

I once had an Orvis Superfine 7'11" 4wt. In fact it was the first nice rod I ever purchased. And like a fool I sold it years back. One day I will replace it just because. It was a nice little rod.

Re: 3 Weight Rod Choice: 2 or 4 piece?

All of my favorite rods are 2-piece, but it is not because they are 2-piece that they are my favorite. My point is they are the rods I always take with me fishing, and while it is kind of a pain to...

It does look electric doesn't it? Its the photo and angle of evening light, I doesn't really look that bright...I don't think. But I haven't had it out in the sunlight much.

Re: Blank on the way - component recommendtions

I assume you mean matching to a thread color? I don't think you're going to "match" that per-say. I used the black nickel Snake guides not long ago, I really like the color for guides but it's not a...

Re: Stike Indicator Help

If you are already comfortable nymph fishing without a bobber then by all means, please do not start using one now!

Seriously, I spent a lot of quality time learning how to fish with indicators,...

Imx

I finally finished building my 8'6" 4# IMX circa 1995 and took it out for a lawn cast. O baby do I like this little rod! Tight loops shooting peas at random targets 40-50' away. I've got to find...

Re: Heading to YNP, GTNP ...

Chico HS is one of my favorite places.

I don't know much about fishing in the park, just the obvious stuff. But depending on how the Yellowstone is flowing I had a great day a long time ago...
