Re: Choosing the "correct" rod length.

I have a 6ft 3wt, that is a dream to cast, it has great balance and the action matches my timing. However, I only like it for #16 and smaller dry flies. Larger flies and/or weighted nymphs are just...

Re: Drift Boats

The Green River shot looks familiar. Any chance that is at a campground on the Seedskadee Refuge?

Re: San Juan river, leaders, 7wt rod

My experience with the San Juan is very limited. However, I wouldn't feel handicapped using the equipment you have. I'd try using long and light leaders (12 ft, 6x). The 7wt may seem over gunned,...

Re: Forbidden Gadgets

Whatever works and gets you out there. Knots I find easy to tie with 6.675 decade old fingers (cold, wet, low light, fine material). Surgeon loop for leader to line, surgeon knot for tippet to...

Re: Do any of you fish in western NC/eastern Tennessee?

Go east to Morgantown, north to Wilson Creek/Brown Mountain Beach - enjoy the delayed harvest section. About 60 miles from Black Mountain. OR head west to Dillsboro and fish the delayed harvest...

Re: Fall 2014 Landlocked Salmon thread

Thanks for the great memories. It has been many, many years (40+). I have never met a more beautiful fish. They are great on the take, on the fight and on the plate!

Re: Double Hand not Double Haul

Yes it will. 13-15 Spey, 500 grain Skagit head and lots of running line. Much less tiring than double haul. 1) Skagit head at rod tip 2) roll cast to pick up head 3) back cast to load rod 3) for...

Re: New (to me) dropper attachment method

You express me very well! Thanks. I know several people that use a uni-knot of backing to attach indicators to level leader material. They like the security of the attachment and the quick adjust...

New (to me) dropper attachment method

I've never had real good results using droppers. When using a traditional dropper loop, I get lots of tangles (bad casting strokes). When using the "attach to the bend of the hook" method, I have...

Re: Best low profile/lightweight fly boxes

I like the Flambeau Streamside Series Slimline - they come in a foam and multi-compartment version. They are about 1/2 as thick as common fly boxes.

Re: 10wt for bass fishing?

A big part of the answer for me is casting style. If I'm doing overhead casting, then I want the lightest weight rig that will get my lure out there. I find roll casting much less tiring and tend...

Re: Overlooked Lakes, Overcrowded Rivers

I don't know about anybody else, but for me rivers are more pleasing to be around. I like watching the moving waters, hearing them and looking at all the flow variations. Fishing wise, I do better...

Re: San Juan and other opportunities

When someone said the fish in the lower San Juan school. They were 100% correct. They schooled me on midge/emerger/cluster fishing. We stumbled into beginners luck at first - 3 casts - 2 fish. ...

Re: San Juan and other opportunities

Thanks for all the data. We're just doing a "road trip". Did the same thing a few years ago and bit north and got to watch the homecoming parade in Pinedale. Right now our sights are set on just...

San Juan and other opportunities

Will be doing a road trip to experience the San Juan next week. What other waters do we need to experience (we're traveling from the Midwest)?

Re: Possibly the dumbest question ever!

I'd seriously consider the Cumberland River below the Wolf Creek dam. Many miles of good water. Water flows can be tricky.

Mouse vs. Frog?

The mouse posting got me to thinking about other top water fish treats. Most of my experience is in warm (lower Midwest) water. Frog patterns/lures work ok and so do floating minnow imitations, but...

Re: Free KIndle Fly Fishing For Trout Limited To Three Trout Flies For Life

A swing and miss on this one for me also. I have been thinking very much about the concept of focusing on presentation and quit pattern "searching" so much.
