Re: Eagle Claw 7'???

Didn't think about that. On another "rough country" rod I have a Martin 63ss. There is some difference in these cheap Martin reels but the 63ss has a removable spool, can be set right or left...

Re: Eagle Claw 7'???

Well the rod arrived. For the price I am pretty happy, in fact I'm inclined to buy another. Now you have to understand this isn't something to use on a PA limestone "classic" type water. It is for...

Re: Camping on the Beaver Kill River.

On that spinner, there are a couple of ways to fish it but if the current is fast enough you can mimic the wet fly swing. Cast across current and upstream from the suspected lie of a trout. Reel in...

Re: Eagle Claw 7'???

Well I think the one that was recommended was the 6' 6" featherlite. It is labeled 3/4 and for a 4-5 wt fly line. Sort of confusing. As much as I have figured it works best with a 5 wt if the...

Eagle Claw 7'???

This guy who is pretty knowledgeable said for a tiny mountain creek choked in with brush to get this $19 "ish" Eagle Claw because if it broke I wouldn't be too upset and it worked okay. Well, I am...

Cool Re: Apache Trout in AZ

Once again thanks to all for the help. Sounds like McNary ought to be avoided. When you say I shouldn't be driving around the tribal lands at night- is that a potential crime issue?
I had thought...

Re: Apache Trout in AZ

Sorry, I thought I included the time. I was figuring the third or fourth week of April. Is there a better time?
I began this thinking the best stream fishing was on tribal lands but it seems from...

Re: Apache Trout in AZ

THANK YOU for all the information. HUGE help. When I leave I'll be going down Rt191 to Safford so the east end (Aspen, Deer Creek, Etc.) would probably be best for me. I'll have a small rental car....

Apache Trout in AZ

A few years back Trout Unlimited ran a feature on "Yellow bellies" or Apache Trout. The White Mountain Apache Tribal lands were said to hold the greatest numbers. There was a photo of a guy stocking...

Re: What is a great fishing trip?????

I was at Henry's Fork in ID last summer. Really hot and nothing happening. Locals were getting -0-. I was told DAWN is the key. Nothing jumping at dawn. Then told sundown is the key. Nothing jumping...

Elk Creek, PA

I've read some articles but it would be good to hear from some real life folks that have fished the stream. For steelhead, as I understand it they slowly move up stream throughout the season? The...

Re: Bait on a Fly Rod?

Thanks Wabi- that was some of the feedback I was hoping for. I've been trying to think of what advantages a fly rod would offer over spinning tackle. A long 9' fly rod could sort of guide a bait...

Re: Bait on a Fly Rod?

Well, I live on a small lake that has bluegills, etc. I guess I'll just experiment with some of this. The reason I asked was in case there were some special ways to cast, etc. As I said Lee Wulff...

Re: Bait on a Fly Rod?

Well I KNEW that the talk would drift to the MORALITY issue about bait. I don't know how to avoid all that. As I said, I've never used bait with a fly rod. I guess I have too much time on my hands...

Re: Bait on a Fly Rod?

Well, I must admit, I've gotten a lot more of a response than I thought I would get. If you use a spinning rod, then you sort of lob the bait out into the water. If you "cracked the whip" cast the...

Bait on a Fly Rod?

Okay, okay, okay. Never discussed. Nevertheless if one reads a lot of old books on fly fishing our fly fishing predecessors did use bait. I started out in Colorado and as a young child I am pretty...

Re: YNP.....Safe Solo Hiking?

Re: YNP.....Safe Solo Hiking?

I'm headed there shortly. By myself. I wasn't going to buy any bear spray, I thought it didn't work and wasn't needed. Now I'm wondering. How do you carry it if wading? :o

Re: Yellowstone NP Help

Well, I want to thank everyone once again for giving me some ideas. I think the idea of reducing the number of streams will allow more time per stream. So...on my trip up from the south entrance I...
