Re: What have you been tying today?

I've never posted here before. I've been tying flies for about 2 years so I'm very much a beginner, maybe intermediate at best.

I took a stab at the Guide's Choice Hare's Ear fly. How'd I do?...

Tried a float tube for the first time

And it was pretty cool! I didn't catch a dang thing. Not sure I even rigged up the fly rod correctly. But I had fun. It's relaxing and I can see why people dig it.

That's all... just wanted to say...

Re: Flies for Colorado

I'd go with a selection of black midge nymphs, flashback nymphs, some bead head emergers to use as droppers off a dry fly (usually something flashy and thin), and Adams flies, some parachute...

Re: Looking for a specific underwater video

This is all such good stuff!!!

Question: Do you need those special Czech nymphs to make this work? Or will a bead head prince or a stone fly do the same thing?

Re: Looking for a specific underwater video

Is nymphing without a bobber as simple as just letting it drift? Do you put weight on there too? Sorry for the dumb questions.

Re: Looking for a specific underwater video

I wish you could show me how to nymph without a bobber. Nobody has shown me the way.

Re: Importance of snow out west?

Those two pictures illustrate the importance of a good snow pack better than any words could.

Re: Importance of snow out west?

Yes, it used to rain every afternoon in the Spring. Not anymore. The climate is changing and the west is getting dryer.

In addition to the drinking water supply, snow pack also helps control...

Re: Is there a reason for a longer rod?

This whole discussion just makes me want to try a longer rod and see if I like it. Looks like I'll start saving up for one. :smile:

Re: Is there a reason for a longer rod?

This is brilliantly written and explained.

So let me see if I'm understanding this properly. Given that the tip ads mechanical advantage at the expense of accuracy, would a heavier weight bring...

Re: Is there a reason for a longer rod?

This is fascinating. But now I have a followup question. We're talking about the advantages of a longer rod and there seem to be many, so let's talk about the advantages of a short rod. So why is 9"...

Re: Is there a reason for a longer rod?

You guys are convincing me to give a longer rod a try. I'd love to meet some of you out there on the river and take one for a spin.

Thanks for all the input!!

Re: Is there a reason for a longer rod?

That all makes perfect sense! So you find that extra foot really goes a long way? Would you ever go back to a 12' rod?

I REALLY want to try tying that fly.

Thanks for looking up the materials list. I'll be watching this thread to see how you do tying these.

Is there a reason for a longer rod?

Hey all,

I live in Colorado and fish the usual streams. I've only been fishing for maybe 4 years so I haven't had a lot of experience with anything other than a 9' 5wt rod.

I feel like I can...

Re: Tippet rings?

I started using tippet rings last summer and loved them. Saved time on changing flies and I still have the same leader I started with last May. Instead of spending a bunch of money on leaders I can...
