Re: World Cup Soccer Added

The humble pie was from you Fred. You stated they didn't have a chance in hell. I think you underestimated them don't you.

Re: World Cup Soccer Added

Last couple of minutes of the game and it is 2-1 Germany. If the referee hadn't bottled a sending off for Durm and Scotland had taken a couple of their missed chances then we could have won that!

Re: War of 1812. Another interesting read.

To be honest us Europeans were a bit busy with the Napoleanic wars at the time. I must admit to knowing nothing about the US second war of independence as we are taught more about us kicking...

Re: It's on.

I do intend to get a few more North Platte fish before I go. Hopefully the weather and flushes will let me get a few days out before April.

Thanks Larry

Re: It's on.

I start in Houston on the 14th April so watch out fish. I am heading your way!
I certainly won't miss the cold and snow of Wyoming after this winter.

Re: It's on.

Wel I am still in the Rockies and managed to skunk up at Grey Reef last Saturday. Been on my travels up in ND and what an icebox it was. Houston is still in my plans though.

Re: Wyoming outlawed it!

I was at Grey Reef last year and saw an angler catching regularly from the disabled pier. He was very chatty and showed me the egg method. I was surprised it was legal as it would get you a hefty...

It's on.

It is official now. I will be heading down to Houston in the next three months. It will be a wrench to leave these hard fighting BIG North Platte trout of Wyoming.
So what can I fly fish for in the...

Re: North Platte, WY Fishing Trip

No word on the move but I am still hopeful.

Skipped fishing this time off as I haven't been feeling so good lately. So 2 weeks of nightshift to get my strength back.

Re: North Platte, WY Fishing Trip

I was out 10 days ago at the Grey Reef tailwater and the wind became brutal! I got a 3lb brown that was red as a fox. I gave up when the wind chill picked up so much it was 2 casts before the tip...

Wyoming is not a bad place you know. It was our first landing in the USA and Casper has been pretty good to us. Of course it didn't hurt that there is the best trout fishing in the country nearby!

Re: Houston urban fishing, pic heavy

Thanks pete. If I am coming it will be to stay. It will be hard to leave those North Platte torpedoes but I said the same about the Scottish Atlantics.

Re: Fishing in the wind -any advice?

Use a bigger rod!

North Platte is a windy bugger of a place and I will just use my #7. It also helps to have a variety of single hand Spey casts to get the flies where you want without swinging...

Re: Two fly rig ... which goes first?

Depends....

Surface or subsurface feeders, small light nymph on point, bushy dry or semi-dry on dropper.

Seep and fast, anchor on point, lighter fly above. This had the advantage of casting...

Re: North Platte, WY Fishing Trip

I have fished throughout the past 18 months and I am not scared of a bit of cold weather. Getting the paste for the rings to stop icing is critical though.
