Re: Doing Time in Wyoming

Excellent trip report. It confirms once more why I love fly-fishing. Trout live in such beautiful areas. Location, location...well, you know what I mean.

Thanks.

Allen R.
P.S. Makes me wonder...

Re: South fork of snake, Idaho

I agree about waiting until after the Labor Day weekend. Being retired, we have the benefit of going to waters during slack periods, so maybe suggesting you do the same is presumptuous. If you have...

Re: Catch and Release...

I find that not only interesting but begging to have someone reply who would know the answer. I'm off to the U.S. Fish Hatchery in Hagerman in a few minutes and I'll ask one of the folks there.

Re: Catch and Release...

I have booked guides many, many times. If I had to hazard a guess the number would exceed two hundred by a substantial margin. Fortunately, I've never had an experience you've described. I'm not sure...

Re: Catch and Release...

If I'm not planning to eat the fish I never handle it at all.

All of my flies are barbless or have had the barbs flattened.

I've carried for years a small tool made from the (6" ±) end of a...

Re: I'll bet that this didn't happen to you

That is funny. Our "dog poop bags" are scented after use.

Re: Interview: Lefty Kreh

Lovely read. I especially enjoyed the comment, "I flunked retirement." I think I can concur.

Re: Why No Fly Fishing Shows??

During the 1984 Olympics I had an opportunity to chat with Curt Gowdy about fly-fishing shows on television.

I was GM of a California winery and we hosted the rowing teams for a Santa Maria style...

Re: Yellowstone Fishing Guides

Just how cool is that! What a grand trip and experience. As I was watching the video I couldn't help by hope for a hook-up and then around minute 3:30, BINGO! Loved it.

I've had that experience as...

Re: Thomas & Thomas Rodmakers has a New Owner

Interesting, since I don't think the previous owner was on board for long, was he? Seems to me it was only a few months ago that everyone was optimistic that he was going to "turn the company around"...

Re: BC mine tailings mine break

We spent three nights camping in that area in the summer of '73. In 2006 on the way back from the Yukon Territory we decided to drive back in there to see how things had changed over the years. We...

Re: Seeking Grayling, High Uintas, UT - 08/04/2013

I agree. I caught three species in one day once and thought that was special. Five species on five casts! Wow!

Re: Idaho Small Streams Part 2

Maybe it's the age I've reached and find that I can no longer wade the big rivers comfortably, let alone safely, but small streams are appealing—especially when they hold fish such as these you've...

Re: First Tiger Trout

Nice fish and photos. I've looked for them in some of the mountain streams in NV but have not been fortunate enough to hook one, let alone release one.

Thanks for the vicarious experience.

Re: Southfork Snake River

Yep, in the mid-60s I "toured" the computer room at the Naval PG School in Monterey, California. I suppose all that hardware has been turned in to scrap metal now. During the '70s I carried my MINOX...

Dare I ask for details about the route? I promise to tear the message into tiny 'bytes', digest it, and then dispose of the after-product in a safe manner far from prying eyes. :D

I'll add another compliment on the photos. It boggles my mind what can be done on those little phones by someone competent, this poster excepted.

Great that you had such a good trip. We'll be over...

Re: High flows in the Bitterroot. I'd guess this is not the only one.

I was just pulling your leg.

We looked at the Hoback a couple of weeks ago and saw evidence that it was building.

Smith River MT

Here's a report that appeared today in the Idaho Statesman about a float on the Smith in April. :eek: Sorry if I'm preempting a member's first-person post. If so, alert me and I'll take it down.

^^ "...that will add fuel to the fire".

Should we assume you're referring to the fuel in your furnace?? :-)
