Re: What's on your lanyard?

there's a 'lanyard friendly' zinger.... all of the zingers i've seen are the pin-on variety.

the gearkeeper looks cool, but yow they are expensive.

Re: What's on your lanyard?

Thanks!

What's on your lanyard?

or do you even have one? I've got half a mind to ditch about 3/4 of the **** i routinely haul around... to be a 'flyfishing guerilla' as Geirach puts it.

Re: Flyfishing masters show

I suspect planted fish. I know a large number of folks who fished a stream they featured and they were amazed at the fish those guys pulled out.

Re: Do you tie your own leaders ?

my experience with salmon and steelies dictates that since it's cheaper to tie my own, that's what I do. I'm typically not real technical about it, since all i'm looking for is a good drift, as...

Re: Most Productive Brown Trout Flies???

I typically find it pretty hard to go species-specific, but i typically catch browns on muddler minnows, wooly buggers, and the like. If i were pressed to catch only browns i'd pay more attention to...

Re: Double Nymph Rig Question

I've tried a few methods, and my favorite is off the hook bend. It helps angle the top nymph and since they're in line, i feel they tangle less.

When using a dry and dropper If the nymph is ...

I watched an old man on the stream a few days ago who had leaders already tied to the flies, and simply switched leaders. Seems a bit pricey to have 1 leader per fly, but he was plugging along.
