Re: Beginner

Welcome, James.


Midges are simple.

San juan worm (the simplest)


The one I'd recommend most is a wooly bugger. It's a versatile fly and will teach you to palmer hackle. You can never have...

Re: So you caught a sucker/fallfish what do you do?

And there really don't need to be any regs as they're not pressured much. I do not think it a good idea to waste a fish, though, especially a native. They aren't a nuisance species by any means.

Re: So you caught a sucker/fallfish what do you do?

If by sheepshead you mean freshwater drum, that's a native fish to the entire Mississippi drainage. They are necessary to the food chain. I'd encourage you to throw them back.

They also hold the...

Re: So you caught a sucker/fallfish what do you do?

Throw 'em back. They belong there and are part of the food chain.



This right here. Rough fish are inevitably powerful. More so than a gamefish of the same size in my experience, and that means...

Re: Crappie and sunfish(and dogfish)

Obie and dakotakid pretty much nailed it on the crappies and bluegills. I can't speak for the dogfish.

Re: Taneycomo, Bull Shoals/White River, or Lower Mountain Fork?

Thanks for all of the info, jonbo. Very helpful.

Taneycomo, Bull Shoals/White River, or Lower Mountain Fork?

It's looking like next May I'll be in on the Oklahloma-Texas border for a wedding. I'm looking at an opportunity for some fishing on my way back to NE Kansas. :punk:

I'm guessing I could budget a...

Re: deer hunters--need gear advice

Yes. This is what's looking in my mind. Frankly, I'd probably go binos before scope. My scope does better than my binoculars, and finding game is most critical.

deer hunters--need gear advice

I may end up blowing my cash on fly fishing equipment, but I'm also thinking of some hunting gear.

I do some stillhunting and shoot a good bolt action with an inexpensive, functional scope and...

Why, that would be the old man. 84 years old and absolutely fit and sassy. He had a minor surgery the other day and he only had two concerns:

Re: Raccoon's tail-what flies?

That looks like a dandy pattern that would make a bluegill feel all warm and tingly inside.

A streamer or tie a a dry-fly version to pass as a hopper or caddis.

Got my hands on one of these today. How do I best use it? The rings are a darker brown and a light tan.

Re: Exhort your state's fishing

I'd love a combo flyfishing and hunting trip there. Maybe elk and/or pronghorn.

Re: Tying a bass leader

Monofilament will work just fine. Or even a trout leader that has seen the tippet section broken off.

I use a piece of 20lb. test and work it down to 10 or 12. Got an old article somewhere written...
