Re: Angler Category

I Went with "Other" myself but, according to Stenacron, I should have picked 100-percenter.

I don't get the chance to get out nearly as much as I would like. I puttz around on a couple really...

What did you learn today?

I see other threads here entitled "What did you tie today?" and "What did you buy today?" and thought maybe this would be a good topic.

What I learned today was that it must be easier to learn how...

Re: Any Newly Retired, or Semi-Retired, Fly Fishermen Out There?

I understand where you are coming from. :) When I first read this, I was shaking my head, "Yes, yes!"

Then I thought about it and shook my head, "No, no!!" Not for me, anyway. YMMV.

Re: Fly sized for blue gill

Jim,

Every time you post pictures of your ties and your boxes, it makes me humbly put my tail between my legs. I wish I could be 1/1,000th as good as you.

Wow.

Re: Flag day

I LOVE Flag Day. :D

I was born and raised in Rennerdale, PA and still only live ten miles or so away. My town helped Pennsylvania become the first State to celebrate it.

Re: First trip out this year

Sounded like a great dat, Jason. I know how you feel concerning work, though. I have had my nose to the grindstone for what seems forever. I need some time on a stream myself.

Re: Hackle Orientation

Great video. I think he explained what he did after he recorded the video. For some reason, it seemed to flow much better than when they talk while they are shooting the video.

I see why there...

Re: Things I think I've learned and things I still struggle with

Wolf,

This makes sense, also. This Clearwater rod was what I "cut my teeth" on and it is a really nice rod. I was (and am?) just too inconsistent while using it. Whenever I started using the...

Re: Hackle Orientation

I have the same problem a lot of times but the barbs always seem to go whichever way they want.

This may be a stupid question but when you tie on your hackle, you say you point it vertically and...

Re: Things I think I've learned and things I still struggle with

Thanks for the YouTubes, silver. Usually, words work for me best but there are times when video works better. But when you combine the two, it is the best of both worlds. I am going to watch these...

Re: Things I think I've learned and things I still struggle with

Thanks for the responses. I will try to put more "wrist" into it but I will take a closer look at hoe much line is in the water, too. I know a lot of it is that I am just a below average caster but...

I have been using my Tenkara rod during lunch and have been having a lot of fun catching the bluegill that are in there--some are surprisingly sizable. The rod is really quite slow and I was a...

Thoughts after a cool, windy evening

I finally had a few hours to spare, so off I went fishing. I decided I wanted to "maximize" my time on the water and pulled out the Tenkara rod. Probably wasn't the wisest of choices.

Re: A Boy's First Fish

I have one. I wrote this to the forum a while back. I think I can just make a URL to point to it. If it does not come thru, I will just do it the old-fashioned way and use a cut-and-paste.

Re: When is fishing fishing?

I have never gone tarpon fishing. And, well, I am sort of like your friend. I never caught a trout bigger than 18"--probably not even 18"!! I did catch a really big smallmouth one time but that's...

Re: When if fishing fishing?

Hmmm, in a strange sort of way, I kind of like that "TAG" hook concept. That said, I agree with Mike about bringing them all the way in. I really like to look at the fish I catch for some reason. ...

Re: Tenkara: Fishing stillwater and Setting the hook

So, you keep the rod up even in stillwater? I should sort if just stick the rod out and "dance" the fly on top of the water? I can sort of see that with a dry fly but what about a wet fly?
