Re: Estes Park Fly Fishing Report

Robby, welcome to the forum.
I think the pictured fish he said was around 20" and he never landed the one he thought might be 24". Nice fish pics in any case.

Re: Traverse City area in June

Re: mini chubby chernobyl Issues

Most of the time when they land on their side you can just give them a quick pop of the rod tip to get them to flip right side up. You're more than likely not doing anything wrong with your tie if...

Re: Smallmouths & fly selection -- describe your approach
