Re: What's this?

Stonefly nymph for sure... maybe a Golden Stonefly (Acroneuria sp?), first/second instar?

Re: Fly fishing Lindy Rig

No, drop-shotting is a different technique for near vertical presentation of soft plastics. Killer on smallies by the way. The original Lindy rig is simply a precision trolling (or controlled...

Re: Fly fishing Lindy Rig

Used to drift a lot of Lindy Rig's on the reservoirs back in PA for walleye. It's simply a "walking" sinker, barrel swivel and a long leader to a painted circle hook. A nose-hooked live night crawler...

Re: High Uintas, UT - 09/12/2014

Mojo,

No real sophisticated equipment involved at all. My camera is a Fujifilm XP-60, one of today's "tough" point 'n' click digitals. One nice feature is that it has a "Kodachrome 64" setting,...

Re: High Uintas, UT - 09/12/2014

Thanks Ard. That's the silver lining out the back door of a cold front like that... bad fishing, but wonderful bluebird skies. And at 10,000 feet you get the bluest of blue skies. :)

High Uintas, UT - 09/12/2014

My buddy Jim is retiring this month and likely moving back to PA in the spring. Really sad to see him go as his return to fly-fishing last year (after a 25-yr hiatus) has been fun to watch.

Re: Green, Provo, Weber?

They finally eased back the flows on the middle Weber, so that should be fishing well now.

Re: What have you been tying today?

Really like these last two... Joey Bagels with a classic fly shot in B&W, and then bocast with a most interesting soft hackle.

Re: Post your labor day weekend success (or skunking)

I fished the walk-in/co-op access area of the Upper Weber River near Oakley, UT. First time there so I was pretty excited with visions of wild cutthroats dancing in my head.

Upon arrival I was...

Re: New Colorado Record C&R Trout
