Re: Fishing and One's pride

Yes. C'mon. 16-17? He, like many others of that age, knows everything about everything, and is right all the time. For now. Give him a decade or two, for starters.

Re: Drift Boats

Drift boats are as common as antelope in the Rockies. My newest one is a Clackacraft Eddy. I had been wanting one pretty bad after rowing someone else's, and mine's only two years old now. Its the...

Re: It's That Time Again, What Was Your Best Fishing Experience of 2014?

"Best fishing" experience can be taken different ways. My best, or at least most memorable, included total serenity on an otherwise usually-busy river. Two days of continuous BWO hatches, cloudy...

Re: Favorite emerger patterns

That's a no brainer for me. When I think "emerger", I think half-in and half-out, and the first thing I tie on is a Last Chance Cripple (Rene' Harrop) in the size and color for the natural. ...

Re: Your fishing preference

I'm a sight fisherman. I look for fish, rising fish. I chase hatches, and the rising fish that follow. Mostly this takes place on more crowded waters, because places that have reliable rising fish...

Re: No Upper Green River Dam, atleast for now.

That's great news. I didn't think it would ever happen, but that's been said/thought before.

Now if we could somehow get us all to quit wasting so much of what little water we have (in relation...

Re: Anyone fishing on Turkey Day?

I'll fish, as I usually do, unless weather stays like it is now. I hate when the wind is higher than the temperature, and that's been the case all weekend here as well. Temps from 5-25, and winds...

Re: Montana and Wyoming

Not supposed to be quite that cold in Southwest Wyoming either, but it is the first real shot of cold air, and will get my attention. Lows Wednesday night around 10-15, above zero! Supposed to be...

Re: Winter Jacket Color

In winter, wear black or dark colors to better absorb warmth. In summer, wear lighter colors to stay cool. As for trout seeing you, just keep yourself out of their window, and just cast/drift your...

Re: Which Color Lenses for New Glasses?

I don't work for them, but I do get a very small guide discount, just like I get from many companies for other gear like rods, reels, line, tippet, flies, drift boats, etc etc. Most pros don't pay...

Re: Which Color Lenses for New Glasses?

Before you buy any, make a local call to Habervision in Golden, or go to their website. I've worn Costa, Smith, Ray Ban and a host of others over the last 35 years, some recently. My Habervision...

Re: Strike Indicators or Not

X2. Been there, done that. Used stick on and pegged bobbers 30-40 years ago when "learning" and fish counts mattered. But for the last 25 or so, no bobbers, no lead, one fly, floating or darn...

Re: Best low profile/lightweight fly boxes

I make a small hole on each side of a hinged corner of my Orvis lightweight fly boxes, and then tie a loop of dacron line through the holes. I can then put them on a zinger, or just on a clip on my...

Re: Help!!! Facing a Crisis Alone!!!

Forget need. You only live once. Go ahead and get the rod(s) you want. If you don't use some, or decide later that you have too many, no big deal. You just sell them. Look at it as very cheap rent....

Re: Trico Hatch???

I love trico hatches, but I usually don't try to fish tiny flies to match 'em. Often, fish will be gulping clusters of tricos. "Dead bugs." I usually fish a #16 or #18 buzzball, Griffith, Gorge...

Re: Flies for western Wyoming?

If this is your first season of fly fishing, don't worry about all the flies so much. You only need a few anyway. Don't even worry about the rod. Make sure you get a good line, and work on where...

Re: Got invited to Ft.Smith MT

If there is any way possible, book a guide for one day. You'd learn more than you ever thought possible, and probably catch plenty of fish.

If you can't, you might consider walking the banks if...
