Unhappy Re: Fish Dying on New York's Salmon River;

I recently read that too Ard. I'm hoping they are able to determine the cause and get it corrected. I'll be watching this one closely and hoping somebody has some info that can be shared.

Re: Choosing the "correct" rod length.

On most of the smaller Driftless streams I've fished, I found the 8'6 4wt to be the quintessential rod. Sure I fished a 9'0 #4 or #5 depending on whether I was fishing streamers in heavier flows and...

Re: A good alternative to Salmon River NY for steelhead ? (GL Area)

The PM is not unlike any other river, you can wade it when it's not rolling. There is plenty of access and water to wade. The bottom is sandy with gravel beds and plenty of fallen timber, which...

Re: Pere Marquette River

I've seen that boat floating down the river, it is a beauty!

As for which flies for indi fishing, try the usual suspects: caddis, hex, stones, eggs should put you on some fish.

Re: Wild Irishman 1/0 tied in hand.

I've got to agree, there's no absolutely reason to chop that up. At the very least, that's a perfect fishing fly, though I'd argue it's worthy of a mount of some sort. Keep it. Look back at it...

Re: Best way to tie a woolly bugger?

Ain't that the truth Jim! I have marabou organized by color, and many of them have multiple packs. Somehow I magically seem to forget this when I go into a fly shop or place an order online for...

Re: Good watch - limited time

I prefer fishing moving water over stillwater, but after watching this video I can certainly see the appeal for you guys who live out west.

Do you fish in those lakes shown in the video Brian? ...

Re: Good watch - limited time

Watching this now Brian, thanks for posting. :popcorn::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I can see why you mentioned that you don't get there enough. I'm not sure that'd be possible.

Re: A good alternative to Salmon River NY for steelhead ? (GL Area)

That's the thing about fishing for migratory fish in the Great Lakes area, it's a roll of the dice. Timing is everything! Unless you live in close proximity to them, you're booking a trip and at...

Re: Schlappen vs Saddle Hackle

Brian is spot on with his response on the 100 packs. I have a few of them in colors/sizes that are either limited on capes that I have or don't have a cape that color. When I started tying, I did...

Re: Schlappen vs Saddle Hackle

I'm assuming you're talking about strung saddle and not saddle from the cape commonly used for dry flies. I use both feathers, it truly depends on what you're tying and the effect you're going for. ...

Re: Driftless trip report, a little different this time.

What I've come to realize through years of doing this is that when you fish in the winter months, not unlike the rest of the year, it's more about being out there than anything else. Getting the...

Re: Best way to tie a woolly bugger?

Brian,

With streamers I am generally tying on hooks between 4 and 10 and will fish the largest ones on the biggest water or where I believe the big fish are. For buggers, and simi seal leeches,...

Re: Two of the same rod ?

I do not, yet. What I do have though is plenty of overlap though. Different rods in the same lengths and line weights but different actions. This gives me some variety. I do know that there is...

Re: Tackle Box?

This is how I do it too. Reel case, wader bag, tackle bag. I use two tackle bags, one for trout and one for salmon/steelhead. I keep boxes, terminal tackle, etc in them. When one season ends, I...
