Re: Brookie Of A Lifetime

That really puts a damper on a day of fishing. At least you gave it an honest try of reviving it. If you fish long enough, you will cause death to at least a few fish. Doesn’t make it any easier...

Re: Kids - how and when to start??

Re: My Boys Tied Their First Flies

Great job on that hopper… Tying with your kids is a blast, hooking fish on a fly that they tied is even better. Good job getting them started young. Lots more fly tying material needed now….. At...

Re: Flycraft ? Anyone see this ?

I have not used one yet, but did look into buying one. They seems great if you float rivers / lakes with class 2 or less water. I do not have that luxury where we fish. But for the water they can...

Re: Winter nymphing in the Ozarks

I agree, its nice to get out. Every time I go fishing on cold winters days, even if fishing was slow, I am so glad I went. Blue skies and no wind only add to the enjoyment.

Re: Hello from New England

I moved from East many a year ago, don't miss those Nor' easter storms. Enjoy it. Tying flies by candle light, that actually has a nice ring to it. Welcome to the forum.

Re: What am I missing?

I agree with many of the past posts. If you are having fun and catching fish a new rod is not going to significantly change that. I often fish with my 8 yr son. When we hit the river I do not...
