Idaho's Access Yes Program

We have a few more inches of snow piled up here this morning, and I've begun daydreaming about this summer's fishing. Several college friends and I typically take a trip to Yellowstone and fish each...

Re: what kind of strik indicator do you use?

That thing's awesome, but intimidating. Are their issues with the line twisting?

Re: what kind of strik indicator do you use?

Depends on what I'm fishing, and how much weight I'm using. If I'm deep nymphing with heavy stoneflies, like Joni I'll use the larger ones, about the size of a nickel. If I'm drifting slower runs and...

Re: what did you tie today

I tied up a few BWO hackle stackers, some glass-bead bodied caddis pupae, and a few crease flies and poppers.

Re: what kind of strik indicator do you use?

They were taking my purple Thingamabobber quite a bit the other day, and I've had them inhale the small white and orange ones.

Re: what kind of strik indicator do you use?

I'm a big fan of the Thingamabobbers too. I've had a few issues with them slipping which have been resolved. I've had issues with tangling them, though it's probably more my poor casting than any...

Re: wet caddis

Very cool. The caddis are starting to pop around here on warmer days, a few of these may be finding their way into my box!

Reviews for the Mel Krieger Casting videos?

I desperately need to work on my casting this season, it's getting ridiculous. I was thumbing through a catalog and noticed the Mel Krieger casting videos, wondered if anyone had any thoughts on how...

Re: First Cast Of 2010?

I was able to go out Martin Luther King weekend and catch a few stocker rainbows in a local spring branch, and a spunky 12" smallmouth trying to keep warm.

Re: Montana Trip Advice

In the Park, the Gibbon and the Gardiner are probably the closest streams. The Lamar River, Soda Butte, and Slough Creek are also in the Park, 45 minutes to an hour's drive from Gardiner.

I'd...

Re: Montana Trip Advice

Madison is tough in spots. Up towards Yellowstone it's generally pretty tame, but when you get toward Ennis there's some hairy spots.

Gallatin is a giant riffle in some places, with lots of...

Re: Montana Trip Advice

Sounds like a good plan. You may want to pack a 7 weight too if you have one, the wind out that way can be pretty stiff, making casting difficult.

There's a couple decent shops in Bozeman, on...

Re: Why is fly line so hard to pick out..

I'd definitely go with the RIO then, perhaps even use a double taper as opposed to weight-forward.

Re: Why is fly line so hard to pick out..

I'd probably go for the RIO line over the Sharkskin for a 3wt- are you going to be doing much distance casting with that light a rod?

Re: Picking a fly pattern

Depends on where I am, what I'm fishing for, and what we're calling the beginning of spring. :p

There's lots of information already out there- I'd try researching the places you plan on fishing-...

Re: Montana Trip Advice

It all depends on where your interests lie, and what sort of fishing you like to do.

For sheer variety, I'd do either Livingston, Bozeman, or West Yellowstone. All close to YNP, all have a...

Re: Best part of fly tying?

Winding hackle (especially parachutes), and the thread breaks. You get to watch everything you just did unwind itself in slow motion.

Re: Odd Question Time

I've used the underfur combed out from one of my chocolate labs, and it worked fine. I did wash it in mild detergent first, to remove some of the grease and dirt.
