Re: Hit the Trifecta today.

That's really great when that happens. The trifecta is tough any time. The last time I went out I was fortunate enough to get a Grand Slam. Bass, Perch, Crappie & Bluegill. They were all small, but...

Re: Favorite Grip

I built a 3 piece, 7 1/2 foot, fiberglass 5 weight one time, and I built a Fenwick style grip out of a full wells. Man, that was a comfortable grip and a dandy rod to cast. I kick myself for ever...

Re: Do you use a Lanyard?

I have been known to use a lanyard and they're OK if you keep them fastened down to your shirt or jacket. But I've always preferred a vest. Now days I use a 12' jon boat with a tackle bag. I keep...

Re: Chasing Perch

That Air Fryer looks like a great idea. I'd have one but they are rediculously expensive. Too bad too. I'd love to have one.

Re: Chasing Perch

I was on the water at 5:30 this morning. Before I went to the area that I knew held perch, I wanted to fish some stick-ups that have held crappie in the past. So I rigged my ultra-lite spinning rod...

I think I'll go chase some perch tomorrow with my 7'-5/6 weight, Eagle Claw Feather Light loaded with a Medalist 1494. and a DT floating line. What dry flies would you suggest? I've got wet flies...

Re: A New Landing Net & I'm Liking It;

Why can't I find a price? Why is everyone so afraid to mention it? I went to Yellowstone Angler and couldn't even find the net. I'm kind of looking for an inexpensive light weight boat net. In my...

Re: Do you get Mad while fishing?

I get mad sometimes, but only at my own ineptitude or failing hands. If my attitude gets in the way of the joy of fishing, I go home and try again later. It's also kind of aggrevating when you spend...

Re: Favorite Grip

I forgot to mention that some of the custom grips with integrated composite or wood components are very attractive, but I still prefer just plain cork.

Re: Cary Specials

I know what you mean about costs these days. If I bought a license and gas to fish my favorite spot on my favorite river, it would cost $150 for a 220 mile round trip. Fortunately, here in Eastern...

Re: Cary Specials

Cary Specials

Tied some Cary Specials up today. I think I'll try them slow trolling for Rainbows soon. I'd rather fish the rivers and streams but my wading days are over. At least my jon boat keeps me fishing. I...

Re: Fishing Vehicle

Years ago, I had a 1972 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup. It had the standard cab, short wide box, 6 cylinder with a 3 speed on the column. I wish I had that rig back so bad that I'd give up un-used body parts...
