Re: Wyoming

I am not familiar with the particular program he is using, but since it is in his "user content", I would guess that he needs to set his privacy settings to share the pictures.

Re: How to Stay Safe in Bear Country

That is a very wise approach. I've raised bulls, and even the best of them can be unpredictable. Honestly we didn't keep them long. They were way more problem than it was worth.

Re: How to Stay Safe in Bear Country

I carry bear spray all the time. I have never had an encounter with a bear, but I have had a lot of other close encounters. I haven't always had to use the spray, but I have certainly been glad to...

Re: Need Neoprene Flats Bootie to go over waders. Suggestions?

I have used slip on water shoes for years while on my float tube. I also use adjustable scuba fins rather than the "floattube" fins.

Not these ones, but somewhat similar: ...

Re: Ryder Lake in the High Uintas

Looks like it is melting pretty fast up there. Hope you were able to get to a few good lakes.

Re: Ryder Lake in the High Uintas

You have a slim chance. There is still a lot of snow on the high mountains, but we are supposed to have high temperatures this next week. It may open it up. But I doubt it.

Re: South Fork in mid-June???

If you do try the South Fork at its mid June flows, go with an experienced guide and keep you life jacket on at ALL times. Wade with extreme care.

Good luck guys!

Re: Favorite budget reel?

I have Medilist, Okuma SLV, and Lampson.

I haven't had the Lampson that many seasons yet but I love the reel so far.

The Medlistis just keeps on ticking!

Re: Giant Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout

Guesstimating that her fingers near the tail are probably about three inches across. If you use that for a measurement, then yep that is a BIG fish! :eek:

Re: Green River and Eastern Utah Report

Interesting looking fly! It isn't what I was imagining at all. I'll have to tie some up and give them a try here too.

Thanks for feeding my curiosity! :D

Awesome fish. Sure looks like it turned out to be a good outing. Hope your cold went away quickly.

Re: Large streamers and trout species other than Browns?

I've caught bows, browns, cutts, and brook trout on streamers. Here are a couple of cutts from this last fall that you can see the ends of the streamers sticking out of their mouths. I use fairly...

Re: Camping mattress pad?

I usually camp in the high country where it gets COLD at night so that is the main issue. Having a mattress under you that insulates is required if you want to actually sleep.

Re: Breaking off a fly.

I would guess knot failure. If you want to preserve you stressed tippet, study up on tying some of the stronger knots for use at the tippet ring connection, and keep your regular knot for tying on...

Being older and wiser (now), I wear mask, hat, long sleeves, gloves, and when wet wading I wear long pants.

The only problem I see with the Utah Cutt Slam is that the Yellowstone Cutts are only native to a couple of small streams. That may put more traffic and pressure on them than is good in the long...

Re: Ice-Chest Throwdown: 12 Top-End Coolers

I can't justify that kind of money for a cooler, but for a few more bucks I can justify switching to a 12v Truckfridge. I frequently am in the middle of nowhere for weeks at a time.

Re: Utah

Nice browns.

I love the little overlooked streams. Even if you don't catch much at first, half the fun is in the exploring.
