Re: Suggestions for guide in Estes Park area?

I was just in RMNP last weekend, and stopped at Kirks for some advice on lake fishing. One of the guys suggested Lake Haiyaha. So I changed my plans and hiked up there. He neglected to tell me...

Re: July camping trip?

Poke, I know! I do like a few amenities though. Like a faucet and (at least) vault toilets.

Bear Creek, Jefferson County, CO?

Has anyone been out onto Bear Creek recently (mid-April on)? If so, where, and how was the fishing?

Thx,

Gary

Re: Anyone feel like fishing tomorrow?

I'd love to, too. I can often play hooky, but I generally plan a little further out.

Re: UV Minnow Belly

Thanks for the suggestions. I was wondering about any REAL difference between a simple Zebra Midge Emerger and the UV Midge Emerger.

Two other things:

1) Is there some substantial difference...

UV Minnow Belly

I want to tie a UV Midge Emerger (Devan Ence's pattern). It calls for UV Minnow Belly. It seems that none of my local shops have it, and I'd rather stay local than buy online. Does anyone have a...

Re: Keeping track of leaders

Thanks all! Some great suggestions. I generally keep the little bags they came in, but if I buy a bag of 3, I'm not so keen on putting a used leader back in the original bags (since it will no...

Keeping track of leaders

Hi,

Does anyone have a system for keeping track of leaders. For example, I may go from a better body of water that may call for a 5X 9' leader to one that requires a 4X 7-1/2'. So I take off the...

Stockard Vices?

Has anyone had any experience with the vices that Stockard sells? The prices are so low! I can't find anything in the forums ("Stockard" or "JS" will appear, but not anything I can find...

Re: Denver Rivers

Too many possibilities! S. Platte. Clear Creek. Big Thompson may be interesting by then. Poudre River. A lot depends on how far you're willing to drive and how many anglers you want to share the...

Thanks for the tip. I've not done that before. I'm still learning all of the wonders of Tapatalk (as well as using the Forum site itself -- wondering if they're tied at all -- i.e., if "Mark Forum...

New to post here.... Don't have a good camera setup, 'cause I'd love feedback.

But the last couple of days I've been learning Copper Johns. Tying larger ones; working my way down the line.

Re: Tying Tip from Eye Doc.

Saw Charlie Craven at the Fly Fishing Show last weekend. He tied with NO magnification or glasses. I thought: just wait! (On the other hand, he's an awesome tier!)
