    Re: Soda butte creek in Cooke city...

    Fished it in 2014 before the fish kill.

    Let's just say that the creek ruined me for all small creeks. I fished it upstream from Silver Gate and had quite a good time.

    After the fish kill? ...

    Re: Best 5w reel choice for abuse?

    You too eh?

    I dropped my Litespeed 1.0 (which they don't make anymore, weird) and bent the spool and had the 'scratchy' sensation every time it revolved around that bent spot. One day, it stopped...

    Re: Canyoneering With Side of Fly Fishing

    After their 5th outing, I'm seeing delaminating issues.

    I'm beginning to feel that the old "buckle version" was a lot more rugged than these new versions.

    I'll definitely keep people posted,...

    Re: Canyoneering With Side of Fly Fishing

    So far, so good, although they've only been out 3 times this season. One thing I am noticing is that it's a lot more comfy, although I did like the stiff sides and tongue of the previous version,...

    Re: Best purchase

    5.10 Canyoneering boots by far.

    I wet wade 80% of the time, and these things are everything that I've been looking for in a boot.

    These things have taken me to areas that I thought I could...

  9. Re: Fly fishing So Calís high Pressured lakes for bass

    I can get fish to go on conventional tackle in all of our area's lakes.

    I think the underlying issue, especially with the lakes in SoCal, is that the majority of the largemouth tend to hang out in...
  10. Re: How to rig abrasion-proof leader/tippet for bass

    If water clarity isn't an issue, create a a tapered leader using straight braid, then use straight braid as well for your tippet.

    Re: Fair weather fishermen....

    A post that hits home!

    There are 3 types of people that I've fished with.

    The first are buddies that own bass boats, and we'll go out from time to time. Before the trip, we go over the...

    Those Pesky Falls

    And by falls, I don't mean the waterfalls, but the falls you take while hiking to your destination, or while you're actually fishing and wading upstream.

    I've had slips and falls, a few bumps on...

    Re: Simms pack opinions
