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...

Call or go in and ask the guys at Headhunters in Craig. They'll be glad to help, whether you use any of their services or not. Its a little shop you'll want to patronize eventually though. ...

Re: Yellowstone National Park (1st week of july, 2014)

Seth: Springs creeks are unaffected by runoff unless its flood-like or something crazy. Those are always a good option. If you can fish any of the Paradise Valley creeks on your visit, do it.

Re: Your State Fly Pattern

Two states not yet mentioned.

Montana? Probably the toughest one, as there are just so, so many. Its state flys fill a box. However, the first that pops to mind for me is Al Troth's Elk Hair...

Re: Yellowstone National Park (1st week of july, 2014)

Its really hard, if not impossible, to predict July conditions in March. Snow pack is high, but spring and early summer temperatures, further snow, and rains will affect the rate of runoff, and...

Re: A Wyoming Cure for Cabin Fever!

Good stuff Larry. There's the beginnings of the blue wings in the air down south now too, and probably in the middle soon. Streamer bite is a good way to get it going again.:thmbup:

Re: How to take pictures of fish....

Yes! That's how it's done. :thumbup: Your judgement is just right. I try to get the fly in my photos as well. The fish, the fly, the water. A hand, maybe a net, maybe a reel, maybe part of the...

Re: Tips for Taking Better Photos

I'm nowhere near a pro or photo expert, but I've found a polarizing filter makes up for some of my lack of skill by bringing more contrast and better color to my photos. I mean, we all wear...

When I go to Mexico, I now just check everything. 4-peice rods go in their tubes, and then into my checked bag. Reels go in a padded case, again in the bag. Same with two Cliff boxes full of...

Re: Trout bummin' later in life

I'd do pretty much what SweetandSalt said. Same places, and there's plenty more surrounding those places mentioned. As for the costs, it's not hard to figure day to day, or week to week. But like...

Re: Lanyards
