Re: What color reel?

Amphibian-American? Like Kermit.

I suppose I could see myself buying a green fly reel, but under what circumstances I can't imagine....

Re: southern utah

Re: What color reel?

Silver is most traditional and looks great. Black avoids glare that may scare fish. Gold looks like you hang out with the Orvis crowd. Orange is obviously immoral and a felony in many states. And...

Re: Camera advice

I've looked at a variety of underwater cameras, and most aren't up to date, their primary virtue being waterproofing. For the more popular point & shoot cameras, you can get an underwater housing for...

Re: Need advice on fishing the Green river in Utah

I canoed the Green from Flaming Gorge Dam (Utah) to Browns Park (Colorado). You can't go further in a canoe due to big rapids. The fly fishing was good all the way even in the middle of all the...

Re: Small Inflatable Kayaks.

As an active kayaker, I would advise you not to buy an inflatable. I bought an inflatable for running Class II -- Class IV rapids, but I wouldn't use it for anything else, particularly fly fishing. I...

Re: Kayaks.

They sell many more kayaks to fishermen now than to kayakers. Fishermen seem to like sit-on-tops about which I know nothing. But I do know about sit-ins of which I own four. I recommend that you buy...
