Re: Fishing report???

Is this recent? I would like to read more about that if you have a link because it's a scary thought that a recreational fishery could be closed because too many people are using it, unless there are...

Re: Thoughts on Dries

Same here.

The only time I fish fully-hackled flies is small stream attractor type fishing (Wulff's, Humpy's, etc.).

Catskill style dries sure look a lot nicer in a shadow box though. ;)

Re: Fishing report???

Wait, I think we may be getting off topic here?

You're saying there are sections of rivers/streams where internet-based fishing reports have created such immense angling pressure as to cause the...

Re: Any photos of black caddis pupa or larva

Black Gnat (pictured)... that's a wet fly. Soft hackle to be exact. ;-)

Assuming you mean the Chimarra species of caddisflies, commonly known as Black Sedge (hook size 16-18)...

Re: Utah Fly Expo

I was at Fish Tech Outfitters this afternoon and saw the poster on the door... I asked the guys inside about it and they said that they haven't heard a word about it since hanging the poster.

Re: Fishing report???

Interesting... I always though "hot spots" were a myth... kind of like magic flies, fished out rivers, and unicorns.

Re: Raptor identification

Cool. That's an adult female I believe... They get those prominent white tufts during nesting season.

Interesting stuff. I may have to check that book out.

Re: What have you been tying today?

What did you use for the body Flytire?

Were you able to track down the Chadwick's 477 yarn, or did you find a substitute?

Re: Raptor identification

To be fair, the female Sharp-shins and male Coopers overlap in size, so differentiating between the two is always difficult when perched (much easier on the wing).

Good call on the woodpecker, and...

Re: Raptor identification

You guys are spot on, it is a juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk (coarse rusty brown spots versus thin dark streaks on the Coopers' chest).

WJC, Sharp-shins, like Coopers Hawks, are bird killers and...

Thank you Wolfgang. Just finished watching it and all I can say is that it was as fascinating as it was disturbing, and sadly - not at all surprising. Big $$$ industrial farming along with the...

Re: Unbelievable salmon virus discussion in Canada

Interesting Wolfgang. I didn't realize that it would be over an hour long until I clicked on the link, but the intro looks to be quite revealing.

I'll watch it tonight when I get home.

Re: Have you ever put a worm on your fly ?

Have any of you ever put a fly on a worm?

ROCK worm that is (aka caddis larva). This happens to me all the time when nymphing. Most are cased versions (Brachycentrus, others), but every now and...

Re: Black caddis patterns

When I lived back in PA, you could have a lot of fun with this fly in size 16-18, mid-May when the Black Sedges were dancing along the stream edges.

Hasn't fished as well for me out West.

I think whatever combination that you used to finish off the heads/eyes on the one's laying along the table there might be perfect. :thumbsupu
