Re: Big Horn

Re: Choosing the right tippet for the fly.

As far as where I fish, it's more about the water and the size and nature of the fish than the size of the fly. I recently went up to Montana and a guide told me to use 3x because the fish are not...

Re: Help choose first waders

I understand tight budgets but in my experience, cheap waders wear out quickly, get holes, don't patch well--and you end buying another pair sooner than if you had bought a nicer pair--ends up...

Re: ** retired! **

Good luck bro! My mom retired last year and is having a hard time adjusting. I am 15 years away but my advice is if you feel antsy, go catch some fish and enjoy some fresh air.

Re: A 9'0" - 6wt for an 11 year old?

My daughter started to go with me a little last spring when she was 9. She was using a 9ft 6 wt and had no trouble. We didn't do a lot of dry fly fishing so there wasn't a lot of backcasting. But we...
