Re: Foul Hook or Not?

It seems this thread is taking the right direction. A hook outside the mouth is foul..... Isn't it. We all see that. Intentions aside, no one is saying a foul hook is the same as an intentional...

Re: Help. New to flyfishing. Where should I go?

I agree with the post above, you could go catch some lake running stockers. There's skamania and big browns and a few salmon running up those tribs right now. Good fun!! But its a big lake, and...

Re: 1st time Lake Shasta region - advice on gear needed....

Welcome Web,

Just my opinion, and don't get me wrong, the stillwaters in the Shasta area can be gorgeous. But, if you only have a couple days in that area, I feel, the wondrous rivers there would...
