Re: Reel for 5wt Winston

Not on your list and a bit more money but have you looked at the Bozeman Reels? I just put a 3 to 5 on my 5wt and it's awesome. Rod made in Twin Bridges and reel made in Bozeman. Pretty good combo....

Re: Reel for Sage 7wt (without totally breaking the bank)

Another vote for Allen. I have an older trout II when it was made in 5-7 or I believe it was the trout II. Either way I paired it with a 7wt Sage One and use it primarily as a streamer rod with a...

Re: new hamshire scoop

I'm pretty much with Cotter on this one as I lived there for about 6 years and fished it extensively. If your in Concord drive North on 93 to the Lincoln or Woodstock area and give the Pemigawasset...

Re: Tasmanian Devil

Much appreciated!

When you make it out to Montana look me up. Floats on me.

Re: Tasmanian Devil

Rick,

My brother is currently stationed in Australia via a military exchange with the Air Force. He is planning on making a trip to Tasmania in the near future to fly fish for trout. Would you...

Re: Montana

Yeah but after the pigs you put me on your fish karma is through the roof. It's just a matter of time till the Stone gives up a 30 incher.

Montana

Spent the last three weeks fishing with friends around Bozeman. The link is a video of a couple of those days. You might recognize some forum members. I've been lucky in making the right...

Re: Scottsdale in February

I've fished the Salt that time of year. It's stocked for trout but you would have to look up the schedule. I've actually caught pretty decent bass in there as well and seen a lot of carp.

Re: Montana State University

You scored an epic exchange....congrats.

I'm with Dhayden and use a 4wt often. That or a 7wt for chucking streamers which I find myself doing the majority of the time now. Lots of guys use 8wts...

Re: Something to Think About

The financing from fly fishing brands doesn't bother me because I would prefer that then see some up and coming film makers eat up their life savings to finance a project that most likely won't earn...

Re: Something to Think About

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with this respectfully. I don't really see how one could look cynically at this project. This is the extended trailer to a yet to be finished film. I've had a...

Re: Tom Morgan selling some acreages….I wish!

I love that drive and do it often. Really pretty country…..but that seems like an awful lot for 10 acres. That being said I'm sure someone will pay it. I'd probably list it for more.

Re: Which common flies don't work for you?

Muddler minnows. I have half a box full of them that collect dust. Never had much luck with them.

Re: Late Dec trip in AZ : Lees Ferry or White Mountains?

I imagine someone local will comment but I think your going to be pretty limited on options in the White's. I've skied there right around new years so I imagine the reservoirs are froze solid by...

Re: 6wt or 7wt Streamer Rod for Northeast Trout?

I run a 6wt with a sink tip when I'm wade fishing and throwing articulated flies. Then I have a 7wt with a 280 grain line when throwing large streamers from the boat. Pro's and con's to each but if...

Re: Big Weather change

I've only fished it in the early summer but there are a lot of browns in that river. If it were me, this time of year, I would throw some large streamers. Especially on a cloudy day or just before...

Brown trout are my thing but I was skunked this weekend in that department. Fortunately I stumbled upon a couple Rainbows.

Re: So you have never fished Lee's Ferry?

Getting towed up and then spending a couple days working your way down camping out would be a fun trip. A jet boat really scares the fish off the beds so creeping on them with a drift boat would be...

Re: So you have never fished Lee's Ferry?

To my knowledge you can't get a drift boat in to float the Ferry. I believe there is an access point up at the dam that allows kayakers or tubers to get on the water and make the long float down but...

Re: Ross Momentum LT #5 squeak!

I get a little squeak now and then on my Ross Evolutions. When I do I just put a bit of lithium grease on the shaft of the reel and it always takes care of the problem. Worth a try.

Re: December Trip

I would classify the San Juan as moderately technical if there is such a thing. My experience has been using very small nymphs and requiring a perfect dead drift. Once you get it dialed in you'll...

I would throw Navajo Dam, on the San Juan on the table. Shouldn't be overly crowded that time of year. We use to attack it via Phoenix when my brother lived there and usually in the winter. Long...

Re: Hello from the banks of the Yellowstone River

John,

Welcome to the forum. When you get back in the spring let me know if you want to do a float. Always nice to find extra people to split time on the oars.
