A fisheries piece from yesteryear

I was poking around an old history tome from 1883 looking for information relevant to my dissertation and noticed this on fisheries in Kansas. I found the comments on crappie and establishing salmon...

Re: How many waders do you have?

None.

I had one pair that started getting a little leaky at the end of a trout trip, so they got tossed. Since then, any wading I've done has been warmwater and in the summer, so I haven't really...

Re: Leaders for carp fishing

I use 20lb mono and work it down. Nothing real precise.

If I specifically target a trout, I might make the last section flourocarbon to cut visibility. I've succeeded without it.

Re: February's fish on the fly

Looks fun to catch. I'm dying for panfish right now.

Your lake reminds me of the one at the airport in Kansas City. It's incredibly blue, and people "ooh and ah" over the color, take photos, etc....

Re: This will keep me fishing for awhile...

It's typically done by calling them in with a rabbit distress call, same as you do coyotes.



Strictly speaking, we can only count it out of state if we both can do it. That said, I love the...

Re: This will keep me fishing for awhile...

22-250 is too much for bobcats and foxes, though, if preserving pelts is a goal as in this case.

The hornet is light enough not to destroy fox and bobcat pelts, as well as be enough to handle a...

Re: This will keep me fishing for awhile...

This is why one of of our rules is that the species has to be used, consumed, etc. Even varmints. No wanton waste, according to accepted custom with a given species.

Guys, I respect Rip Tide's opinion a great deal and do not want him criticized. He's a gentlemen to me and many, many others and has always been one of the best members on the board. If his eyebrows...

Re: This will keep me fishing for awhile...

I justify it on the same principle that I justify hunting/fishing/trapping of any single species. Obviously, one must respect creation and absolutely no waste of game or anything such as that. Game...

This will keep me fishing for awhile...

I challenged one of our young whippersnappers here to a contest to take every legal species in Kansas, whether it has fins, feathers or fur. Any legal method counts.

it quickly became evident that...

Re: Is fly casting in itself a category?

Certainly my cast is in some kind of category. There's still debate about whether it should qualify for disaster relief funds or if FEMA should get involved :D.

The cast has its own appeal, though...

Re: Wading Boot Color

Two thoughts:

My experience is that trout learn that your feet serve as a current break and will sit right below you, maybe even let you stir up the bottom for some tasty morsels (the roots of the...

Re: New to Fly Fishing

Good to have you on board, bradya97.

I don't have much advice for you on the rods, but could offer this: if you can get a chance to cast them first, do so. Some will feel great and others awful.

Re: Fly set up question...tippets?

What you say her is a good thing to remember. Most warmwater species aren't line shy like trout.

Regular monofilament will do just fine with bass, bluegills, etc. What I do is use several lengths...

Re: Extremely New to Fly Fishing!

Definitely so on the bass. A carp, you'll be in for a tussle but it's doable. I land carp on my six weight, but have to be gentle as my leaders are often lighter than the fish. Make sure you have a...

Re: Winter Carp: Need some help...

I'd get something walking and bouncing the bottom.

When I was a kid in the local "fishin' hole," there's be a lot of carp and other rough fish stacked up just like you say. It was summertime, but...

Re: Warm water fishing for a change

I love bass on the fly, especially when they hammer a popper or mouse on the surface. Wham!

We have a mission house down in Brazil, and the people down there tell me the Dorados are great fish to catch. I need to get there somehow.

Re: Never fly fished

Welcome aboard, Chet!

I'm entirely self taught on casting. I bought a book to learn the basics of the cast and the various knots. Youtube is great.

A casting lesson can help, but it's doable...
