    Poll: Re: Pheasant Tail Nymph variations (poll)

    One of the places I fish I drive around some in a park. I keep my waders on when I drive. To protect the seat I lay a towel down on it. I fished there last about 2 weeks ago. Well today I picked up...

    Poll: Re: Pheasant Tail Nymph variations (poll)

    Been going with the "Frenchie" lately (See jspfishing's post). But I might use UV Peacock instead of the UV Shrimp for the thorax and have it look more like a PT, but with a hot-spot (I'm...

    Re: Fly Tying Nymphs

    You want basic? Tie a Pheasant Tail for a dark nymph. I find the instructions at "Charlie's Fly Box" to be really good, especially with a couple of specific tying details for the PT. Then tie a...

    That's sad. I had forgotten for a moment that the oceans of the world are becoming filled with our discarded junk.

    But what if you can't find a discarded flip-flop to make your "bird fly" out of? Great vid, BTW.
  6. Re: Animas and San Juan biological analysis post mine release

    I fished the Animus in town at the end of November for a couple of hours, hooked and fought for awhile a good sized trout, got her to take a Pat's, deep in a plunge pool/pocket. (Man, those...

    Re: Thanksgiving 2018 Week in Durango

    Thanks, man. I really appreciate you showing me around the way you did. They made us work, but we caught a couple. Where I went wrong at the Cable Hole proper was I think, as you told me when last I...

    To add to what TD said, you can do all that on-line, I'm pretty sure.

    Thanksgiving 2018 Week in Durango

    The wife and I took our bi-annual Thanksgiving trip to Durango last week to visit my sister and her husband. I was able to get away and fish twice. The first time was planned in advance. This was to...

    Great info, Josh, thanks for posting it! Makes me glad what I posted was somewhat wrong so you could make such a detailed correction, LOL! I'm book marking it if you don't mind for next time I'm able...
  11. Re: White/Norfolk tailwater trip in January - wading

    Go here to check the generation schedule:
    Southwestern Power Administration

    -The White is "BSD", the Norfork, NFD, I think.

    -The schedule's good for just a few days ahead, but you need to look...

    Re: Euro Nymph Rod

    Everyone I know who fishes a 10 ft 3 wt Orvis Recon raves about it for Euro-nymphing AND for all around versatility. Plus it comes with the vaunted Orvis warrantee that I can attest to. Just sayin'.

    Re: Losing fish on nymph rigs right before netting

    I lose a lot to fish, too, at the net, especially when using tiny hooks, midges and such. I believe it's because I try to bring them in "hot". I've gotten conscious of the idea that when you fight a...

    Re: Indicator Tippet - What's your preference?

    I have one of Devin Olsen's (Tactical Fly Fisher) commercially sold leaders. It looks to me like they use 2 colors of Amnesia for the sighter. That's what I will probably do if I tie my own. That...

    Re: Euro Nymphing with Regular Tackle?

    Some of you guys must be much better casters than I am. I wasn't able to do anything with that super long mono euro-style leader until I got a dedicated euro-style rod. Now it's no problem. My 10'...

    Sorry mods! Please delete this thread. I accidentally posted it in the wrong sub-forum. I've since copied and pasted it to the Rocky Mountain forum where it needs to go.

    Yeah, when I go to the Juan I'll probably carry my 9' 5wt Hardy Zenith, though possibly my 7'10" 4wt Sage TFLX because I really love to fish that rod. I was talking about taking my euro-outfit down...

    My 10' Echo Shadow II 3 wt does tightlining/euronymphing well, and more traditional methods fairly adequately. It's tip-heavy, though. I had to buy the extension kit for $80 just to get the weights I...
