Re: Green River and Sea Eagle 10

I floated the Green on the 17th and she was running around 3000cfs-roughly double what the guides expected this time of year. It was very manageable with an experienced guide though I would be...

Re: Personal & Fishing sidearm pics

Hey Ard,

Re: Tippet Ring Knot

Not necessarily, as I'll sometimes use a tippet with a similar size to the terminal leader for perhaps streamers or buggers. In either case the intent was to preserve leader material and the ring. ...

Re: Coming home - moving back to Colorado

It was nice to hear a few JD songs after so long. I didn't realize it's been that long since he passed but his visual songs brought me here in the mid- '70s. I hope you enjoy your move back here. ...

Re: Stripping basket for kayak fishing

I initially opted for simplicity so when I got to my target area, I removed all foot pegs, clutter and paddle off the deck and just cast. Simple right? I found my toes and other misc. items still...

Re: Tippet Ring Knot

I liked the Rio video for the common sense he describes; however, I use the strongest knot I can think of to attach the leader to the ring ( my opinion only, the SD Jam Knot). For the tippet knot to...

Thumbs up Re: Gunnison River Float: Pleasure Park put-in?

Glad to hear that. Where is Drysdale Flats? Is it after the Austin Bridge? I was thinking of doing this in a canoe, albeit a stable one I can stand up on.

Re: Gunnison River Float: Pleasure Park put-in?

I've wondered where to take out and if leaving your vehicle is safe? By the bridge or closer to the town of Delta?

Talking Re: Non slip mono for drys and nymphs?

I've used this in the salt but have tried it on larger dries of the 14-18 and it seems to work. The only downside is the work to tie one vs using the conventional quick knots and the amount of...

Re: The Wall Street Journal on Mop Flies

Actually the reason I removed trout from my choice of sustenance was seeing my excitement prepping my catch from a river in Telluride greatly diminish upon discovering a cigarette butt. I did see a...

Re: Rolling duffle bag w/ divider for fishing travel?

Talking Re: How many years have you been fly fishing?

23 years but there's still so much to learn, places to see, and memories to capture. I picked up a flyrod from "liver eatin' Johnson's" great, great grandson in '78, didn't know what to do with it,...

Re: Personal & Fishing sidearm pics

It depends on the region. On unknown lower 48 rivers by myself it may be some form of drastic plastic like a Gluck 40. In Yellowstone's Slough creek it will be at least a 44 mag or 12 ga shotty to...
