  1. Beginner or not this may make sense.

    From my experiences I gave some fly fishing 101 advice. It seemed good enough to preserve so I'm putting it here. Maybe it can help you too?

    [Quote] My situation....first off I'm still very green, like sub 2 months of experience. Fishing the tailwater of the Jackson river in the Hot Springs Virginia area. I throw every dry in my box and have trout after trout reject them at the last second. I thought it was a hookset timing problem so I searched ...

  2. Took a trip to fish for Grayling;

    This is also located in the Coldwater Fishing sub forum but I'm saving it here so I know where it is.

    Recently someone told me that we don't have hardly any fishing report threads for the past "few years". You and I know that's not the case but rather than sit on my hands I decided to do a little thing of my own.

  3. Fishing Dogs;

    There have been many a post on the forum asking about dog breeds for fishing and for the most part I remained mute as members remarked about their dogs. Bear in mind that talking down a mans dog is in the same category as bad mouthing his family and that should go without saying is a no no.

    The one mod that really acted as a gamechanger was the addition of a pair of custom built float pods welded to the rear of the hull.

  5. King Salmon Research on the river;

    While you were sorely missing me here I was away to the cabin doing the essential spring cleaning and land maintenance for a few days

    With a couple long days of cutting, more cutting, vacuuming and dock anchoring under my belt I wearily climbed into the ATEC for the long drive back to the boat launch. Other than the shear number of spruce trees down in the creek that connects the cabin on the lake to the river the 4 1/2 mile drive out the creek was uneventful. The usual suspects ...
