Re: Crushed on the Henry's Fork

Good stuff Joe. I'm not an entomologist and just call most of them "pale duns" whether they are PMD or apparently Pink Alberts. I have seen a lot of these pinkish colored duns though and began tying...

Re: Hoot Owl restrictions July 3!

No fishing from 2pm to midnight. The heat of the day here is about 5-6 pm. So water temperature continues to rise until late into the night. Though it seems like fishing at dusk would be safer and...

Hoot Owl restrictions July 3!

Wow.

Yeah, it's been hot, really hot. And the rivers in Western Montana are low. But I can't remember official Hoot Owl closures put in place this early. July 3, FWP is putting the no fishing...

Re: Crushed on the Henry's Fork

Wow, four fisherman for four days and one fish. That is tough! I've only fished the Henry's once, sort of. It was a bachelor party weekend and a bunch of guys floated through the box canyon a couple...

Re: For Sale: Tilley Airflow TM6 Khaki / Olive 7 5/8

Unless that hat runs small, you've got a huge head man! Size 8 hat is big. I'm a 7 1/2 - 7 5/8 and I definitely like to try a hat on before purchasing. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

$10-15...

Re: The rude Alaskans

Ahh...I can't really imagine a scenario that would be worse! That is an amazing story and it did make me laugh at their utter clueless behavior. Naive is a very polite way of saying stoopid.

Re: clearwater/selway

Though I've never fished the Lochsa I have made the drive along it more than once. Fantastically gorgeous country and river. It's a classic mountain freestone, so I'm not sure why you were told it is...

Re: Dear God its about to get hot!

The 30 degree temp swings are the saving grace during the heat waves in the high, dry West. For sure. I grew up in Michigan and know all too well laying in bed on top of the sheets, sweating, on...

Re: Sage Mod (and other new rods at EFTTEX 2015)

Yeah, I am reluctantly looking forward to the discontinued Sage sales. But I still won't buy one...but my hope is to find a 6'10" 3wt blank at a heavily reduced price sometime in the fall. Hey, a...

Re: Dear God its about to get hot!

Not sure where you are, west, but I'm looking out at the Bitterroots and there are just small snow fields in the highest bowls. None of that is getting down here. Most of the Snotel site are...

Re: Sage Mod (and other new rods at EFTTEX 2015)

Including the new MOD lineup, Sage is also releasing a "Little ONE" line of light weight med-fast rods to replace the TXF-L. Pretty cool.

Re: Length of four piece rod tube

You should be able to carry-on a four piece rod tube without any problems. It will fit in the overhead compartment.

Re: Centennial Valley - Montana

It is a beautiful place for sure. It is also quite remote, even by Montana standards. I had looked at the area on the map for years, and then finally went in there a few years ago. The 40 miles of...

Re: AFTM weights and fly line manufacturers

That seems like a really heavy line. According to the AFTMA standard, 9 wt line is 230-250 grains. 375 is a 12wt line. I don't know why you'd want to over-line by three line weights on a single...

Re: Blowing In The Wind; Wild Fires On The Rise!!

Wow, I hadn't heard about this fire yet. Sorry to hear it, Ard.

Unfortunately, huge fires have become far too common in the inter mountain West. I'm concerned about this season here.

I think the "flagship" label is silly, Sage has numerous "flagships" depending who ask and when. Not getting on you, just the term in general.

That said, I think the One was considered a...
