Question Re: First Tiger Trout

I've heard of this type of trout but never seen one (short of photos), are they natural or a cross between two types of trout?

Re: I wonder what hatch?

Add my welcome! Saw that bit of film and was darned glad I didn't have to contend with that mess. The clean up would have been horrific.

Dead on Tyler!

I wish the term 'switch rod' had never been adopted!:mad: Unless you've got the body build of a Logger it just isn't going to happen. I wish the term 'short spey' (say 12-12.5 foot...

Re: Is Spey/Switch for me?

From personal experience you need 1.5 or 2.0 times the rod length of 'clear air.' Reason for that is the rod tip goes waaaay up when you make your 'D-Loop;' rod tip has to have some where to go.

Re: Line recommendation

First welcome to the Forum.

Sad truth is you'll need more than one line given the scope of the fishing you're considering. A 'cold water' line is very different (coating wise) from a 'warm water'...

Re: Mayfly hatch so large is showed up on doppler radar

My first real experience was up on the Rogue a tad down stream from the Hatchery. Fellow I worked with me (simi-retired actually) asked me if I'd ever seen a Stone Fly hatch? Answer was no; 'I'll...

Re: Are you a thread killer?

Personal opinion .... No.

By the very nature of this, or any other fishing forum, many of the questions will be fairly repetitive,:popcorn: just a tweak on the theme. Only so many ways to answer....

Not heard that, but love your comment. I must find a way to slip in the word "promptitude" into a sentence. McDonald's would not be a good choice.:rolleyes:

Re: The Shimano Beancounters Just Wrecked Loomis

Subject to correction as this was 'old news' the discount is usually around 50%. Sounds steep but the Manufacture's want you to put 'their rods' into client hands for a days fishing.

Re: Right tool for the job ?

A random thought just occurred as seen it done when a fellow forgot to pack his reel for his light spey. I think his rod was a six spey and he lined it with a standard WF 8wt single hander line that...

Re: First build

For some ideas of what kind of components are available Google "Angler's Workshop" in Southern (Vancouver or just north of there) Washington. Amazing what they stock.

Re: Right tool for the job ?

Putting a Skagit head (and that big of a fly) on a 5wt would be cutting it pretty thin. Just not enough 'Omph' in the rod. For single hander lines (on a 2hander) the general 'Rule of the Thumb' is...

Re: Guide Costs and Gratuities

I could well stand to be corrected here (never fished in the UK) but most (of what I can tell) are walking/guided trips. Not here; you will 'run' somewhere between 7 to 10 miles of river over the...
