Re: Bitterroot Area - Advice please

Just pray for rain and cooler temps, if you're planning on fishing. I'm headed out in a few weeks, and I'm getting nervous about the record heat and lack of snow pack. There's some "talk" that the...

Re: Heading out on a Montana guided tripů.

I'm headed out in a few weeks. Can't wait! I'm hearing the water temps are peaking over 70*, which is not good. I hope they get some rain and cooler temps in the coming weeks, so we can actually...

Re: Fantasy Football League.

I'll join, if there's room. I'm relatively new to fantasy (played last 2 years in multiple leagues), so I should be an easy win from week to week.

Re: I think we've seen the peak.

I have been watching the "snow pack" info for the Smith basin, and it has been low all year. I guess that's the story everywhere out there this year.

It's actually my brother in-law and a couple...

Re: I think we've seen the peak.

Damn, I was afraid of that. Plane tickets are already purchased, with people coming from 5 different states to meet up with some Montana folk. May be time to hatch a plan B, or plan on a...

So my Smith River permit for mid July is worthless?

Re: 45 Days in the USA - Very Soon!

$800-$900 is about right for a day on the skiff with two anglers (including tip). I do not know what the off-shore rates are, but I'm assuming they're more, since you will be burning a lot more...

Re: 45 Days in the USA - Very Soon!

I would suggest going to Islamorada for your Keys adventure. It's the "Sport Fishing Capital of the World," or something like that. As for the fishing type, that's completely up to you. There are...

Re: Feed them meat...

Is that the D&D? I have been meaning to tie some of those up. Looks killer.

Re: Maiden Voyage

Nice! I'll have to give Fall Creek a try. I'm getting sick of being skunked on the White (wading). I have a boat coming, so hopefully that will help.

Re: Top Water Fly Swap 2015

All:

I need to apologize for my failure on this swap. I never got the materials that I needed to complete my flies. Sometimes life gets in the way of stuff you want to do, and there's no way...

Re: What's your favorite fly box?

Make your own. I did this with an old handgun box I had laying around, but you can use whatever box you want. Craft foam, spray adhesive and a razor is all you need. Here is a link of how to do...

Re: Orvis courses

Yes, it's worth going. I went about 4-5 years ago with my wife. We were going to MT for vacation, and she was interested in fly fishing and wanted to give it a shot. I was coming off a 10-15 year...

Re: Little tricks to share

Not sure if this will help, but this is how I do it. When I'm tying the tippet to the bend of the hook, I don't cut the tippet off the spool. I pull some out, then tie it to the bend of the hopper,...

Re: Installing seats in a jon boat.

I would use the sheet aluminum. Whatever you do, do not use treated lumber. It will react with the aluminum, and cause corrosion over time.

Re: Selecting the right lens

I don't have any experience with those lenses, but my guide in The Keys swore by the chroma pops. He said they are the best lenses he's ever used.

Re: New to fly fishing.

I wouldn't get too caught up in the numbers for bass. They are not leader shy. Use whatever works for you. Usually, when I'm fishing bass, I use 2X as the smallest tippet. You can also use...

Re: Carrying On Flies For Saltwater Trip

I have flown with all my gear in my carry-on numerous times (flies, nippers, forceps, etc.) with no problems. I called the very first time, and they said it was fine.

Re: What have you been tying today?

Just some rubber legs. I'm headed to MT in July again this year, and the chubbies with rubber legs as a dropper were killing it last year. I've got about 200 hooks to wrap before then, so I figured...
