Re: Fishing Streamers, Where & When;

Has anybody fished streamers at Pyramid in Nevada. Any tips you guys might have would be appreciate. Fly? Depth?

Re: Carp Leaders

I use about that on to a 30 butt so it doesn't cut into my line. It turns a weighted wooly bugger over just fine for me. I think it's little stealthier than a tapered leader. The waters I fish are...

Wink Re: Diving Caddis...

I love the old school wet fly patterns. The old "cow dung pattern" has the same kinda look. More green though. (The late 1700's i believe.)They definitely still catch fish.
