Re: Adipose

Most people around here run Clacks but starting to see more and more Adipose south of the Missouri. Personally I love mine. The open rod storage and walk around sealed the deal for us. Easy to get...

Re: ANyone Using Sage One 13'6" Eight Weight?

I have the 4210 on mine as Sage lists it for 6-9wt in Spey. Does the job.

Re: ANyone Using Sage One 13'6" Eight Weight?

Morning Ard,

I almost bought the 13'6" 8wt but after speaking with the guys at Sage went with the 12'6" One in 8wt instead. I really love the rod. I'm a beginner spey caster though so this opinion...

Re: Mayan Riviera Cozumel fishing??

Just got back from Punta Allen and it's a cool fishery. However, I agree it's a bit much to break off in a day trip. You can catch a ride to the Reserve and then take a boat down to Punta Allen which...

Re: Carp - Gear and tactics

Depending on the size of the fish your targeting you can get away with a 6wt but it's nice to have a 7 or 8wt when you hook a large fish. Lot of guys get it done on 6wts but people also blow up 6wts...

Re: Carp - Gear and tactics

Do you fish the salt? Treat them like Permit. They can be incredibly spooky and picky. If your in a boat get out and chase them on foot if you have that option. Be as quiet as possible. When one...

Re: Yellowstone Experience - Crowds an Anomaly for 2015?

I almost admire the folks that have the balls to get within 20 feet of a bison for a selfie. They must be fearless.

In regards to the OP I think as others mentioned gas prices are at play and not...

Re: Turks and Caicos (Provo)

Yeah looks like your in the clear since about.......1976. Will be interesting to see how that plays out down there with the neighbors. If I owned a lodge in the Bahamas I would be nervous.

Re: Turks and Caicos (Provo)

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think T and C are a British Colony and independent of the Bahamas?

Re: Video - Bucknasty Browns

Exactly. There are actually a lot of little gems like this sprinkled across the West and I don't blame anyone that would be pissed if it was pointed out to thousands of fisherman. Literally.

I always carry it out here when in certain areas including where you'll be. The cans are so light that it's hardly noticeable. Just make sure it's accessible and not buried in your pack. I put mine...

Re: Where to fly fish near Phonix?

Don't overlook the residential ponds around the Phoenix suburbs for carp and bass. If your only interested in trout then the Salt River East of Phoenix is stocked with rainbows.
