Re: College Visits With Fishing

He's put you on to it. Concentrate on being the MAN you're supposed to be and do the things that make you that kind of man. In studies, relationships, and recreation. Flyfishing can be one of them.

Talking Re: First aid kit

There's something to be said about getting a hold of old army field manuals and boy scout handbooks. First aid is one of them.



Might be something to keep in mind for a desperate situation,...

Re: College Visits With Fishing

It might. I was actually planing to camp along it, but forest fires closed the campground down. Went to Estes Park instead, but did get to fish a half day in Ft. Collins itself during the business...

Re: College Visits With Fishing

Can't tell you much about RMNP, but did fish on the Big Thompson just south of Estes park in the Catch and release section. Nice water and there's a lot more stream than what I fished.

Something...

Re: beavers!

I had to deal with them once around a wooded pond area. They're like furry, four-legged chainsaws living on your property.

Re: Fly Prices to Rise

I tie most of mine and the ones I don't tend to be when on trips. When I buy flies, it's normally because I never have any use for the patterns on my home waters but are good for a particular place...

Re: What fly did you catch your first trout on?

:welcomean


Mine was a black woolly bugger. A winter stocker in Pennsylvania.

The woolly bugger was last seen hanging from a power line not far from there. :o

Re: Freedom To Use Rivers

I really want to read the section on Kansas. Anytime I read something like your post, I get the feeling that Kansas illegally restricts access rights.

Re: Casting flies on a spinning rod. Help please.

There are bobbers (seen 'em in walmart) that have a bit of lead wrapped around one end that sinks down to hold the other end up. That might work.

Edit: the lead might make it heavy enough to...

Re: Cabelas Three Forks?

It's what I use. Mine's a six weight. Works good as far as I'm concerned.

A lot of people will say they give good performance for the money.

Re: How to Stay Safe in Bear Country

The research I've seen on this gives bear spray the advantage, mainly because you don't have to make a precise shot when a grizzly is charging. More room for error.

That said, bears that get hit...

Re: how often do you keep your catch?

When I trout fish, it's generally in these same parks. I keep a fish or two each day for cooking over the camp fire.

Otherwise, normally only when fishing with others who keep fish.

Re: first bass on a fly

Great fish!

One of the most underrated aspects of fly fishing is seeing bass hammer flies on top. None this gentle sipping of mayflies. Just WHAM!!!

Re: What depth for a sink tip line?--fishing a tailwater/discharge

I didn't get a chance to do much. I'll do the searching later. It turned out they weren't releasing water as I expected. My floating line set-up worked fine for the time being.

I'm actually a monk as well as a priest. We pretty much wrote the book on beer.:D
