    Re: Upper Clackamas?

    Just got back to the hotel about an hour ago. No fish caught but I did watch a huge salmon swim around in some shallow water. It had a white tail. Pretty far upstream I thought. I saw the sign...

    I'll be in Portland for a couple of days so figured I'd hit the upper Clackamas. I did this same trip last year but didn't find any fish but didn't go too far up either. I did see plenty of spawned...

    Re: Problems with Korkers boots

    I started with Korkers with felt soles and after two years I purchased felt soles with studs. The soles held up over the three years combine I owned them. It was the rest of the boot that somehow...

    Re: DIY VersiTip?

    I saw the Rio VersiLeader at my local sporting goods store. You just add it to your regular ( floating ) flyline and that's it? I see they had various sinking rates and a loop on both ends. If I...

    Re: Rainbow Trout Pics

    Pretty good day today. Plenty fish biting and many are smaller but I did manage to catch a few that were considered large in this river ( not counting Steelhead and Salmon ). Not bad for a low...

    I should add that Simms did send me two pucks of the star cleats free after I asked them about a pattern on the sole that would be best.

    Sharing photos of our rivers we fish is a great idea. I...
