Re: When and where for small mouth?

I prefer to float a river over lakes. The Mississippi River in MN is awesome. There are a few fly guides in the Minneapolis area.

Re: Spring Fly Fishing in Montana is Producing Big Results

The Bighorn is at 2,000 CFS which is very low for this time of the year. It's going to be a low water year on the Horn.

Re: leaders for pike and musky

I like to use 20lb stiff mono with titanium leader material as a tippet. Titanium is much better than steel or toothy critter material because its very difficult to kink. A kink or two will make your...

Re: Straigt River, Park Rapids, MN

When I was going to college in Fargo I would flyfish the Straight. The best time is during the hex hatch just before or into the dark. Otherwise use buggers or real big nymphs along the banks.

Re: Blue Winged Olive Music video.

Cool video

Is the video from this spring? In ND we still have a lot of snow and all the lakes are frozen solid. People are still ice fishing.

Re: Pike / Muskie fishing

You don't need a big assortment of flies for pike. Use decievers, clousers, EP's and bunnys in the biggest sizes you can cast and give them a lot of flash.
