Re: Help me pick a trip: Iceland or Slovenia

Re: Fly Fishing Yosemite

I've been to the valley in Oct after the Merced has been hit hard all summer and there were still fish rising behind the camps.

Agree that SO's FF the Sierras is the best resource out there.

Re: Fly Fishing Yosemite

Merced and Tuolumne for starters. You can find trout in the Merced just behind the campgrounds in the valley.

I would drive over to Mammoth Lakes and fish those rivers though.

Re: “grinning-guy-holding-the-big-fish" photos

To be fair the older books seem to have plenty of pics of guys holding fish, but they tend to be of 20 fish strung out on a line. Better dressed than today's anglers though.

Re: Yosemite Lodging?

The valley will be packed with people. And it's 1.5 hours to Tuolumne. Consider a rental just outside the park. The other thing to consider is the state of the streams. Not sure what the runoff is...

Re: Size of starter rod for kid

Thanks. He's a tough kid and would probably object to fishing with something called the "Minnow."

"Thanks, Uncle L, but they didn't have the "Death Shark"?

I ended up grabbing the LL Bean.

Damn, now you have me thinking of that rod. It is a present and we do have a fairly strict budget policy for christmas, but I guess I can stretch that.
