Re: A Hypothetical for Experienced Truckee River Anglers

You should write the truckee off for the rest of the summer at least until we get more rain hopefully. Flows are too low and temps too high. The fish dont need the pressure.

Re: tfo bvk vs. tfo mangrove

I recently cast both in 8wt. For me the Mangrove was the handsdown winner. I just had to much trouble keeping the BVK in the sweet spot and even then I still cast farther with the Mangrove.
