Re: Yellowstone National Park early June 2016

Stupid question? How do you press a button to take a picture with a GoPro if both hands are holding the fish? I've always wondered that.

Re: Estes Park Fly Fishing Report

I thought I followed the directions on how to post pictures. Guess I'm not doing it correctly. I'm flying home today. I'll post pictures (assuming I figure out how) later. Sorry!

Re: Runoff and Rattlers

Great report and pictures. Thanks for sharing. Just one thing though. Coming from a Giants fan, that is one seriously ugly fishing hat you wear! :D

Re: Knot Tying Tools

I'm a bit arthritic and far-sighted. I'm a medium good caster and not sure if I am ever reading the water correctly. But I love getting out there and doing my best. Always learning. For me I decided...

Re: Beaver Creek above Penrose

Just curious. Could you tell us what your idea of a careless wader is? It might be a good education for some of us. I don't want to inadvertently become one. Thanks!

Re: Fishing near Denver in June

After reading a bit more it looks like the best option is stay in Denver and drive everyday the 1-2 hours to any location that might be good. Is that the best strategy? I was kind of hoping to stay...

Re: Fishing near Denver in June

I'd like to stay as near as much fishable water as possible. Historically are my chances higher with one or two rivers than with others? Sorry, a bit of a newbie in this area.

Re: What to wear in Southern California in the surf

I decided to get Orvis Encounter bootfoot waders. I don't think I will need to wade very deeply. I will also have a tight wading belt on beside the blet to hold my stripping basket. I'm pretty...

I love your net. I think you might have just started a new company. I suspect we all want our own!

Re: First trip out and I got skunked

I've been skunked so many times it's ridiculous. I go to Yellowstone every year. When i would go with a guide, I'd catch fish. Alone-- not so much. Being here in Socal, it's hard for me to get away...

Re: YNP.....Safe Solo Hiking?

I don't like to hike alone in YNP that much. But the bison are as much of a reason as grizzlies. I took off to check river access about a month ago leaving my wife in a parking area. I was going...
