Re: San Juan and other opportunities

Thanks for all the data. We're just doing a "road trip". Did the same thing a few years ago and bit north and got to watch the homecoming parade in Pinedale. Right now our sights are set on just...

San Juan and other opportunities

Will be doing a road trip to experience the San Juan next week. What other waters do we need to experience (we're traveling from the Midwest)?

Re: Possibly the dumbest question ever!

I'd seriously consider the Cumberland River below the Wolf Creek dam. Many miles of good water. Water flows can be tricky.

Mouse vs. Frog?

The mouse posting got me to thinking about other top water fish treats. Most of my experience is in warm (lower Midwest) water. Frog patterns/lures work ok and so do floating minnow imitations, but...

Re: Free KIndle Fly Fishing For Trout Limited To Three Trout Flies For Life

A swing and miss on this one for me also. I have been thinking very much about the concept of focusing on presentation and quit pattern "searching" so much.

Re: Just wanna say thanks

As said above, watch the back cast and let it develop before doing the forecast. When I'm having trouble, a 90% of the time fix is to slow down between back cast and forecast.

Re: Is a 6 wt switch rod equivalent to an 8 wt?

That's the general rule I've heard and it is close. But it depends a lot on casting style. For the lake and surf, I'd go with the longest spey I could afford in the wt range I wanted. I use a 13' 8...

Re: New line to line tippet knot --Jack's Knot

It is a good knot, but like you I very seldom tie a tippet knot, I use tippet rings and your terminal knot.

Re: ever thrown a traditional baitcasting lure?

Sure. I like to fish, I like to catch fish. Mostly I'm talking plastics (worms, grubs, swim baits). I have an 8wt spey with a 540 grain Skagit set up just for throwing those kind of lures. I like...

Re: how do you secure you're wading staff

I also use one of the cheapie trekking poles. I like the ones with the "clasp" style adjustment better than the "twist" type. I attach mine via a piece of para-cord and keychain class carabiner to...

Re: 10' 4wt recomendations

I find myself liking the stiff, faster tips more and more just for that reason. I can feel the subtle takes better with a stiffer rod.

Re: Knowing when a line is too light?

It always helps me to watch the back cast. I actually aim the back cast about 45 degrees up and back. By watching the loop, I can get into sync with the rod/line/leader/fly/wind.... My most common...

Re: Double taper on switch rod ?

I just tried a DT vs a WF on a switch rod for indicator drifting. They both cast about the same out to 30 feet. Past 30 feet, the DT cast better and was much better mending. This was roll casting, ...
