Re: No-Knot Fas-Snap, have you ever used it?

Runningfish - I've tried the small with an #8 nymph and the snap is just too small. Now a #10 is OK with a small but I prefer the medium for that size. I have tried the small snap with a #12 dry fly...

Re: No-Knot Fas-Snap, have you ever used it?

Re: Anyone been up to the miracle mile recently?

This week-end? Have you checked the weather? Son lives in Rawlins, said I-80 may be closed east of Rawlins. With all the snow they got, it may be difficult fishing. Good luck
