Re: Brown trout are biting on the Owyhee (fishing report, July 19)

Generalized fishing reports like this crack me up. I sometimes see them posted by state wildlife agencies too. Newspapers are notoriously good places.

Pretty much fish any type of fly (nymph,...

Re: I need a new boat anchor

I've had both cylinders and pyramids on my drift boats through the years, and the pyramid always seemed to hold better on rocky bottoms/freestoners like the 'Root, Big Hole, Maddy, etc. On...

Re: What is your fishing style?

There's nearly always a rising fish or three on the rivers I fish, at the times I go. I hunt 'em down. On the rare day I don't find any, I enjoy the float, enjoy the walk, and enjoy the scouting of...

Re: What is your fishing style?

I like it slow and observant. Stalk 'em like a heron. Cast only to rising fish. Try to plan and position to get the take on the first cast. If not, I might cast to one rising fish for a long time...

Re: Sunday Fishing in Wyoming

That's quite a few campers at "the rock" for a cold mid-April weekend. Glad you got into some. Around 70 degrees by Thursday-Friday maybe?

Re: Wyoming in August

I think you gotta help us a little, 'cause Wyoming is pretty big! Western side has the most fishing IMO. Star Valley and surrounding mountains. Wind River Range with major drainages on both the...

Re: Stealth??

Um, the so-called "Bighorn Dance" or "San Juan Shuffle" is not only unethical (akin to chumming), and not good for the stream bed itself, its illegal in some Rocky Mountain states. Sorry, but just...

Re: Stealth??

I'm all about stealth. On most waters I fish its mandatory. I spend a lot of time determining the "stealthiest" position to make a cast. Details have been well covered, but the topic makes me think...

Re: Gros Ventre in early July, what flies and other advice?

Fish further up river from the campground to find clearer and lower water. Way up the dirt road! Check Pacific Creek, up towards the park. It clears sooner than many. Water will be up in early...

Re: Snagging Fish on the San Juan

One of many reasons I only fish with one fly. Not many foul-hooks, even when casting into pods.

Re: Days’ worth flies –Fly boxes

For most of the season, one or two is plenty. Most of us are likely to only encounter a few different hatches or situations for most of the season, and we know what those are going into the day. ...

Re: Straight fly rod blanks

On the blanks I've built, I've always found that the spline always ended up also being on the line where the blank was also straight when you look down it. Often there has been a curve that's...

Re: Straight fly rod blanks

I've seen it. As one who has built some of my own, I can tell you a lot of blanks have a spine, and I build mine with the guides on the spine (bottom) so the rod does not have any...

Re: All-day spring hatches

Love the Roaring Fork valley. Its worth the drive.

That was cool! I've had a fly in that situation a few times, but no such luck. And this guy had the camera going too!

Re: All-day spring hatches

Every fly that evolves from that man's brain or vise is magic. With each passing season, more and more of his patterns take up space in my boxes. I've told friends that if I ever lost every fly box...

All-day spring hatches

Same river, different month. It is springtime in the Rockies, meteorologically at least. That means its 20 degrees at sunrise, and warms up into the high 40s by mid-afternoon. The sun is creeping...
