Re: Real Combat Fishing in Alaska!

Ship Creek and the Russian are awesome rivers. They keep everyone away from all of the other places.

Re: Real Combat Fishing in Alaska!

It's actually easy to fish by yourself here, even on the road system if you are willing to walk a short distance.

Re: Fly fishing in Vermont?

I grew up in northern Vermont, but I haven't seen other people fly-fishing there. Actually, last time I was there, I didn't see anyone fishing at all. There are a couple of fly shops around in...

Re: Bear Protection

I agree with Ard. When you use bear spray, the bear leaves and you can get back to whatever you were doing. When you bring the hand cannon, assuming you are capable enough under pressure to hit the...

Re: Decisions Decisions...

Easy, hunt first then take your limit of birds and go fishing. You probably need some on the water research to determine what flies those feathers are for.

Re: Furled leaders and tippet rings... What am I missing here?

Re: Furled leaders and tippet rings... What am I missing here?

The tippet breaks at the ring on both leaders, but the furled leader seems to stretch before it breaks and comes flying back into a big tangle. Might be better with lighter tippet, but the furled...

Re: Furled leaders and tippet rings... What am I missing here?

I still use a furled leader for the few times I'm fishing dries, but stopped using them when fishing nymphs.

I do use tippet rings for the same reason I stopped using furled leaders.

Re: Living outdoors

I like to go places that the hard side doesn't really fit, like gravel bars and old mining roads. I had a big lance hard side last year, but sold it for the pop-up

Re: Living outdoors

I have a pop-up camper for my truck. It is really only good for 2 or 3 people, but it is nice to get into a heated space when it's cold. To save the battery, we only use the heat when we are awake....

New fisherman

One of my friends at work wanted to go camping last weekend so his father could see some scenery before he went back to Utah.
