Re: Gulf Shores

Thanks for the follow-up and pics. Glad we could help, and glad the Gulf is still a fun place to cast from the beach. I remember those days back in the 60s (before the hotel glut) when fishing...

Re: Yellowstone - Early July

Caddis colors? It was all white when I was there last month. That's all I needed. But I talked with a guy who was having success with black-winged caddis late in the day on the Madison.

Re: Yellowstone - Early July

Certainly the Firehole will be too warm by the end of July; just wanted to share info with those who will be there soon.

Re: Yellowstone - Early July

I just returned from a 2-week trip to Yellowstone, fishing every day, all day (June 19-30). WONDERFUL!

I tried fishing all over the west side of the park, but the Firehole was best, by far. I...

Re: eagle claw trailmaster trp600 line ?

Me too. I just bought one at a yard sale. Really a neat (6-piece) rod for traveling. Mine is graphite, marked 4-10 (must be line size). It's 7.5' long. Huh? :confused:

Re: Any bird enthusiasts?

Re: An Open Letter To Thieves Everywhere...

I feel your pain, Jerry.

While my wife and I were out of town (a few years ago) some thieves broke into our locked utility room and stole all of my fishing gear. The one item stolen that still...

Re: I forgot just how funny a boat ramp can be.

I lived at Dauphin Island, AL for 4 years. A buddy of mine and I used to take a 6-pack to the launch for entertainment. Saw boats sunk, cars underwater, one car ripped its bumper off, trucks...

Re: Do salmon farms help or hurt the declining wild salmon population?

I watched it. Thanks.

Like all monoculture farming: disease, pests, and runoff eventually ruin the profits and detrimentally affect the environment.

Re: Do salmon farms help or hurt the declining wild salmon population?

The most salient point made in the story is (paraphrased), "We have 7 billion people on earth now. We've depleted the terrestrial resources and most fisheries species. Farming salmon only makes...

Re: Stupid is as stupid does

I drive a RAV4, so I tied a loop on the hook atop the cargo area. Now I put the rod in the car with the tip forward and the reel through the loop. It travels that way to each site, and it's easy to...

Re: fishing yellowstone, fly advise

Thanks for the post, planetrout. I've never tried those, but I will now. ;)

In lieu of those patterns, OP, you can try a Copper John (which is available almost everywhere).

Re: fishing yellowstone, fly advise

The hopper-grass bugs will be hoppin by then. I like to use orange stimulators during the afternoons in meadows. Mornings might require smaller flies.

Better watch the water levels if you're...

I lost my favorite rod that way. Not sure what happened, but I started by backing up, then drove forward and never saw the rod. Once I missed it I returned and found it run over (probably by...

Yes, Tree Swallow.

You've got more birds coming your way. We've still got R-B Grosbeaks and Indigo Buntings on our feeders here in Mississippi. The male grosbeaks have mostly moved on, but we...

Re: Steamers: Because they work

I think the OP can edit his title, should he want to do so. :confused:

Regardless, streamers work. So do Wooly Boogers. :rolleyes:
