    For me once I had an on fire day. Everything was hungry jumping on my hook. I landed a small giant grouper and a catfish in the same hour. That was weird.

    Tenkara flys?

    How do you fish this fly? Do you nymph it under and indicator? Do you swing it like a soft hackle?

    Re: Out Gunned - Bad Feeling

    100% agree! When I started I did not want to loose fish so it was classic Abel reels with cork drag. I pretty much always landed my fish. Over the years I still have those Abels but I also fly in...

    Re: Carping a little on the LA river

    How cool! I would never think to fish the LA river. I think homeless encampments when you say LA river. Obviously I'm wrong. How do you fish that fly? Do you strip it?
  10. Re: To net or not to net. THAT is the question

    My #1 reason to use a net is I often fish 2 flys...hopper/dropper etc. You can control a fish better and get all the hooks out of the way. I have had fish kick off during a ketchum release and put...

    why not consider just keeping the same 9wt and buying a skagit set up for it? Then you can decide when to conventional cast and when to skagit.

    Peta would like that too. In fact why not outlaw sport fishing? I can't think of any group more enthusiastic and protective of fish populations than flyfishers. Despite that love, who would vote...
