Re: Ethics question

If you read all these posts you will find ideas you had never thought about. It is interesting to me how many variables have been brought out: skill in playing fish, water temperature, snags and...

Re: Ethics question

Does anyone know of a study that compares the length of time that a fish is played to mortality rate? Seems like there should be some.

Re: Ethics question

I read one of Ard's posts where he fished for Kings with a 7wt rod because he had intended to fish for sockeye that day. He apologized for that and it started me "thinking" about my fly fishing here...

Ethics question

Suppose you were fishing and suddenly 20" trout began rising. You quickly realized they were feeding on a hatch of tiny midges. You dug out your fly box and found a reasonable facsimile, however...

Re: The River Why?

Yes, but it revolves around Paul's alcoholism as well as the wife's brother's alcoholism.
Remember when they brought the wife's sunburned brother in drunk and the wife said to her husband, "You were...

Re: The River Why?

As for "The River Runs Through it", many people who saw the movie thought it was a story about fly fishing. If you read the book you will realize it was very much a story about alcoholism.

Re: The River Why?

There are many hidden meanings in many of the scenes in the book.
For instance, when the girl hooks a female King on 4# test and hands it to the boy and tells him to keep it on until she gets back...

Re: gear quality ?

I once read a story that says a lot about personal preferences in equipment, skill in the use of equipment, and how little importance attaches to the "quality" of the equipment:
A fisherman was...

Re: scratches on your reel

I guess I baby my equipment. Doesn't seem difficult. There is usually a clump of grass or a bush near the rocks in places I fish, so I put the reel there when I need to fool with the rod tip. If I...

Re: Shoot Off Of Barbed/De-Barbed Hooks

I agree that the way the fish is handled while removing the hook is the most important factor. My personal experience is that hooks of around size 14 and smaller are quite easy to remove with a...

Re: Examine My Cast Please

Another thing to notice in those graphical presentations is that the butt of the rod moves a considerable distance forward and in a straight line. This can be accomplished with a bending of both the...

Re: WOW, I Totally Missed This One;

Back in the 60's in Michigan it was common practice to fish the Redds. The large runs of salmon and steelhead at that time were the result of hatcheries, not natural spawning. Natural spawning...

Re: Forced into Running an Experiment

Re: Rod Weight Versus Casting Distance

Lets think about some things. First, lets assume the rod and line are matched. Then a longer rod will cast farther than a shorter rod. A sinking line of the same weight as a floating line will...

Re: Oof, some bruiser bluegills

I have a lake where I can catch 9-11" Bluegill till my wrist gives out. I have caught upwards of 250 in a day, all released. I timed myself with a stopwatch timer set at one hour once and caught 55...

Re: 6 Weight rod, lightest tippet size can I get away with?

Jackster has an excellent point. Head shaking is very hard to deal with with a light tippet. That said, I have fished dries on a 6 weight rod with 6X tippet and landed 2# trout without much...

Re: Deals you may want to look at

I checked their fly rods and one they list for $795 they say was named "best economical fly rod" in a 2007 shootout. So $795 is economical?

Re: Change of Heart-or Legs

Try tying them on 1/100 oz trout jig hooks. Fish them under an indicator. They work great for big bluegill.

Re: How many flies do you have to make to break even?

I tie my own because I can develop or modify patterns that I can't get anywhere else. A lot of the ones in stores are tied to catch fishermen, not fish. For example, parachutes are usually tied...

Re: The Bad Juju thread; "Never do this"

Fish can smell, so spray your waders down with "scent-away" like the deer hunters use. Thjey can also smell that nasty disinfectant you use to get rid of the invasives also!

Re: Colorado Legend- DEL CANTY

The last time I fished his place in leadville, he said he was moving to Delta and I believe he was planning on opening either an aquarium or museum. You guys might search for him there.
