Re: Most productive nymph ?

My go to nymph is a yellow rubber legged PT. I don't know what it is, but the trout around here seem to love it!

I also like to tie them in a soft hackle and float it behind a dry when mayflys...

Re: Reaffirming a hook set? is that even the right question?

I had this happen last winter with a rabbit sculpin helmet. I had a pretty long tail and on three consecutive casts I "hooked" three fish but lost them all after about 3-5 seconds, I then realized...

Re: Rotary vice help!

6/7 months ago I made the switch from an AA vise that came with the tying kit my wife gave me to a rotary (Renzetti Traveller). It took me a little while to get used to it, but now that I've been...

Re: First Guided Trip—any advice.

There's a lot of great advise so far, but one of the things that's helped me learn the best is to set goals for my self. Such as catch a 20" trout, or whatever a fitting goal is. I don't tip off of...

Re: Upgrade time... Just in time for my birthday!
