Re: Horsepower rods - thoughts? Jerking steelhead in.

12 - way,way,way overkill.

Most people who fish for muskies with a fly rod in Minn-Wisco use 9 and 10 weight rods. Mainly so they can throw the ridiculously big flies, that often carry a lot of...

Re: Yelled at a moose last night...

I got on the water a little late and marched upstream so I could walk back down all the runs and throw...

Yelled at a moose last night...

..three times, he was in the way.

It was a big bull, huge rack, nice shiny points. He'd obviously been working at it.

He was just inside the park on the Madison off 191.
It's about a 3/4 of a...

Re: Browns on the move?

Glad you guys had a good time.
I just had too much going on to get over there. I would have liked to fish with you all for a day. Oh well, some other time.

I haven't run into any browns that look...

Re: Mistakes....

I've learned that if you are in the front of the boat and you can see that the rower is going to hit a rock, pointing at the rock and saying several times "You're going to hit that.." without holding...

Re: The Night Owl Fishing Thread;

Just got back from the Deschutes and Klickitat last night.
The Deschutes was epic, the Klickitat not so much though I did hook a Chinook around 25 pounds that I didn't keep because I hadn't read the...

Re: Best way to tie a woolly bugger?

I pretty much tie all my buggers with a bead head.
I use schlappen for anything larger than a 4 and don't tie anything larger than a size 1, 4x long. I go to circus peanuts and other streamers if I...

Re: Bull Trout

That will work, they aren't really all that tough to get to bite.
The fly just needs to be big, have some movement and down in their zone.
They'll certainly come up but the deeper the better and...

Re: Fly Shop Owners?

I expect people to show what I think is common courtesy, if they don't I judge them accordingly, to a degree, as does the rest of the human race, everyday, all the time. I think that's pretty...

Re: Fly Shop Owners?

I don't disagree with you, however I think it is in incredibly bad form to grill a fly shop for info and not buy a couple of flies or whatever.
I'm certainly not comfortable doing it.

The info...

Re: Fly Shop Owners?

"The customer is always right" is one of those idiotic phrases passed off as conventional wisdom by poor managers.

Re: Coolers

I have a Yeti in my raft.
The difference between it and all the other coolers I've owned is night and day.
It holds ice for ever.

Week long river trips maintaining ice in the cooler is just not...

Re: Best fighting fish?!

Pound for pound in freshwater I'd have to say smallmouth bass.
But they don't make blazing runs, they dart around in the general vicinity, bust out some serious air from time to time and tend to dog...
