Re: Right tool for the job ?

I agree with Fred.

I do a lot of fishing in Montana with a Sage One 6126. It's slightly over-lined with 480 grain Skagit and I usually run 10 feet of T-17.

This is all on the heavy side for...

Re: Some Pretty Good Trout Were Caught;

Yeah, seriously man.

That pretty much goes for everyone else on the forum.

Re: Heart Lake YNP report

Cool.
That's a big cuttie anywhere.

I packed my float tube into Heart Lake about 15 years ago.
It was late September and the bugs were gone.
My pack weighed a ton so I didn't bring a tent and...

Re: Wanting to throw more streamers, sink tip?

If you're going to throw streamers a lot it's nice to have a dedicated rod set up or at least a dedicated spool.

Re: How realistic is a career as a fly fishing guide?

No, you were in the ball park for Montana and Wyoming anyways.

If a guide only made $100 a day they couldn't afford to guide.

Re: Master Fly Tier Video Series

Weren't you getting enough attention on the Drake board as John Stewart?

People over here are bit friendlier at the start, why don't you just quit now while you are behind.

Re: Recent trip to the boundary waters northern Minnesota

Cool.

The BWCA rivals any wilderness area anywhere in the lower 48 and yet still flies somewhat under the radar. Which is a good thing.
