Re: Fishing a Private Wyoming Ranch: The Highs and Lows!

Beautiful fish and pictures Larry. Looks like a great spot, even if some fish get spooked. Who knows, perhaps you'll be teaching his son to fish?

Re: Best reel for a classic trout Rod?

For that price I'd get the Orvis Battenkill reel, it comes it at $98. Great look, simple design, nice reel, and very good customer service to back it up. For cheaper you can look at the 100 series...

Re: Guide Costs and Gratuities

In some ways of looking at it, it can seem an absurdity, but I think it is a cultural practice that has made its way into wages / prices. If we stop tipping or start tipping less I think prices...

Re: Guide Costs and Gratuities

I'd guess the real answer is rather complex. We are comparing similar jobs in two different countries with different tax systems, economies, and benefits provided by the government (health insurance...

Re: Online tying matrials

The hair feather fad is annoying but it will pass and he certainly didn't cause it. I can't fault him for selling feathers to people who will pay far more than I would pay. I have gotten tons of...

Re: Best place Online for hooks?

+1 for Allen and also a Saber hook fan - good hooks for the price for sure. For small flies I buy Orvis big eye hooks. Threading tippet through 18 and smaller is just easier with the big eyes. ...
