    Re: Echo Shadow II 10 foot 3 weight

    I fish the same rod a lot, basically the same set-up with the same extension kit. It's a pretty good rod, I think, both for euro and for traditional casting. The only downfall I've found is it is...

    Re: Looking for inexpensive vise

    I have a Dan-vise as well. I think I paid $100 for it several years ago. It has a rotary feature. I like it quite well, especially for the price. If one were willing to pay more, I'll bet there's...

    Re: Gatlinburg Question

    Thanks, folks. It I can't go to the high country I'll probably stay around Elkmont and Sugarland, (I think that's what they're called?) unless going over to Cherokee is significantly better....

    Re: Bifocals in prescription sunglasses

    I have bifocal prescription polarized sunglasses and like them. My regular glasses are bifocal, so I'm used to that. There's no way I could tie my flies on or do any other close work without the...

    Re: Will stockers forever eat trout chow pellets?

    This confirms for me what I have already experienced from fishing and from keeping fish in an aquarium. They feed together. When they're not feeding actively you pretty much have to put it right in...

    Re: Why Use Strike Indicator?

    Per the last 2 replies before mine, it does seem that when indy-fishing one can cover more area without moving than while euro-nymphing, for the average fly-fisher, anyhow. I think the real pro-type...

    Re: YOUR 5 swing flies

    For my Arkie/Okie tailwaters:
    -Small olive bugger
    -any march brown-like SH, or as one fisherman who was having good luck hollered out to me, "Little brown fly!"
    -PMD imitation, either a SH or an...

    Re: Tying versus Buying

    Here's something I've been thinking about that I want to ask folks: I'll limit it to the most common general type of nymph, which imitates, supposedly, a mayfly larva. Now, there are hundreds if not...
  10. Re: Little Red River, Pangburn, AR. Any advice or recommendations.

    Try JFK Park to get close to the Dam and the Brookies. Also, Cow Shoals or Barnett Access where you can fish the immediate deep hole with the bait people or wade downstream through Winkley Shoals....

    Re: Drifting Lower Mountain Fork

    The stop-logs that keep that area backed up and floatable have been removed as they are each winter, so I don't think it's really floatable. After the Swim Beach, where you'd have to take out anyway,...

    Re: Why Use Strike Indicator?

    The main reason I don't go dry/dropper more than I do is the lack of length adjustibility. I adjust an indicator constantly. If I'm in a big flat, that is pretty constant depth for a pretty long...

    I don't mean to give away secrets. The areas I mentioned I found on-line with no trouble, mostly from published articles and the blogs of guides and such, so I figured they were public knowledge. But...

    Re: Trip plan around Bull Shoals/Branson

    There's several shoals in the first 15 miles or so below BSD that are quite wadeable at minimum flow. The river's a large one, but then that means the shoals are pretty good sized too, and worth...

    To revive this thread, it's a little odd for me for to ask questions right now, because my trip to Gatlinburg is planned for almost exactly one year from now (Wifey plans things way ahead), but I'm...

    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...

    But what if you can't find a discarded flip-flop to make your "bird fly" out of? Great vid, BTW.
