Re: Montana trout issues.

You can say that twice. He's a great guy. I've enjoyed many days on the river with him, and he really knows his stuff. His organization is one (it's a national TU affiliate, but a separate group)...

Re: Question: suggestions for affordable fly reels

The Battenkill is a good reel, but since you need two, I'd go even cheaper on the trout. I have Echo and they are good reels, you can get a Solo for $35 (the Ion is $80). Then spend more on the...

Re: Fly fishing near Fairfax, VA?

The park is good, and beautiful, but small stuff. Some great trout streams though. I don't know how far you want to drive, but about 40 minutes north of DC is Upper Patuxent state park. There's a...

Re: Magic river ?

This is a great mystery that I'm having fun trying to figure out. The problem is that its a small stream, and there are so many in that part of the world that its hard to pin down. At first, like...

Re: Loomis.....losing fans and market share?

That's funny, I had a similar experience. I had (and still do) a couple old Fenwick rods from my father, but when I first walked in a real fly shop it was all G. Loomis. Sage too, but loomis was the...

Re: Recommended 44 mag ammo

Yes, that's fair. At close range I suppose that's the case, but as you say, most guys would be wetting' the drawers at 15 ft (myself included)--I think Guns and Ammo made a similar point--and a mad...

Re: new rod

You already ordered so the question might be a little late! But yes, it's a good rod for the money. I bought one for my brother on the recommendation of a Trout Unlimited pro. Enjoy.

Re: Loomis NRX

Don't worry, Sweet&Salt, for good reason, counts for about a dozen NRX fans on this forum.

They seem to be known as a regional NW brand, more so than something like a Sage, maybe because they have...

Re: 8 wt reel advice, help

Back on topic, for that money look around for a used Abel or Tibor Everglades.

Re: Going stir crazy!

I'm going to be in Delaware this weekend, but there won't be stripers for, what, another month or so?

But with temps in the 60s early next week there might be some trout fishing to be had.

Re: My Next Next Rod...PA Small Streams

S&S,

I can't quite call it love, but I've got an 8'6" 4 wt ZXL that I'm in like with. You didn't mention that one. I think it's better than a One (you mentioned) or other fast action rods for...

Great question. My wife and i have been thinking about this lately. In that universe, Bend is on the list but Missoula not at all. I was born in Bend and love it (the growth is good and bad) and was...

Re: Ever been fishing when all Hail broke loose?

Your brother is the full-on-double-rainbow guy? Cool.

And yep...on the Bitterroot in a drift boat. Hail like that, snow, gusts to 40 knots, rain...hell of a day on the river. Wouldn't have...

Re: Reels and spare spools

Here's an instance why I think it makes complete sense:

I have a Big Game No.2. I have a large arbor for my 6 weight and a standard arbor that I can fish on a 7 or 8. One reel for different...

I'm going to be in North Idaho and Montana the week of November 18. I know it's late, but might there be some afternoon hatches if there are some warmer days? Any spots along the lower Clark Fork...
