Re: What did you catch this weekend?

All I was able to catch was a slight buzz. I have a 6 month old, I don't get to fish much anymore

Re: Hook Keeper

Find a local rod builder to put one on for you. Shouldn't run more than $30. I use hook keepers on all of the rods I build. It is the easy way to hook and walk to the next hole

Re: Nymphing fly rods?

my dedicated nymph rig is a custom made 13' 3wt on an Anglers Roost blank. Really lets you get it out there and keep a tight line

Re: Newbie Questions Regarding Spillways

Not an answer, just a reminder.

Some states (California, for example) have restrictions on how close to a dam you can fish. Make sure the pool doesn't conflict with the Nevada fishing rules and...

Re: most effective way of marketing a fly shop

There are 2 shops around me. One is right off the freeway, can't miss them. The other is a little further out. The one right off the freeway is horrible. The manager is condescending and treats...

Re: Silver Fork of the American River

Don't worry, I am not very good at this either. In fact, this was my second time catching trout on the Silver Fork and the first time I only caught 2 5" fish. Practice practice practice.

I took a...

Re: Silver Fork of the American River

Do you have waders or are you fishing from shore? It can be tough to get into a good position if you aren't getting wet

Re: Orvis Sonic Convert. Waders

Great idea!!! I always struggle with my Orvis Guide Wadders. I get them in the boot but it always bunches a bit and can be uncomfortable.

Re: Silver Fork of the American River

Nope, no fish in the Silver Fork or Caples Creek. Nothing to see here. Move along

Truth be told, there are a ton of fish, even some pretty...

Re: Clearwater vs Access Rod and Reel Size Questions for Newbie

A lot of beginners want to get the fastest/most powerful rod they can get their hands on. But I have found that a slower action rod produces more feel and a better cast. While timing is more critical...

Re: Clearwater vs Access Rod and Reel Size Questions for Newbie

Re: What are the sizes of trout?

I don't know, I do really love getting high up in the Sierras where an 8" fish is huge and a couple 5" is still considered a good day

Re: Beware! They will even take your fishing gear as 'colateral.'

Yes, I agree they are. However, it is not my responsibility to educate them. It is 2015, information almost all things is readily available for easy consumption.

And the no option thing, this...

I am in the minority here, I guess. It is the one asking for the money that should ultimately be responsible for deciding that they can or can't afford. It is not anyone else business. If these...

Re: Beginner's fly rod quiver advice

As someone who loves Orvis products, I would strongly recommend the clearwater line to you over the Access. Sure, the access has a bit nicer build quality to it (nicer hardware and higher quality...
