Re: KILLER - Simple Baetis Nymph Pattern

All good comments! I learn all the time from these exchanges of ideas, and experimentation. The tested, tried and true pattern is golden. Those patterns line my boxes because of the past. However, the future is tomorrow and change is certain. Perhaps the quest to be a better predator, to fool more t...

I better get on that myself. Seems to be a void in the box where that one should go. Thanks jrs. Use them when you need them. When nothing seems to be "the ticket", when you want to sight fish to a fish or group of fish or when the water is up a bit and off color.

Re: Cost of fly line.

They just keep going up don't they. Some times the manufacturers will also make packaging changes. Many customers are keen to this "new look" since hey have seen the new package on the web or in the catalogues. Some manufacturers will exchange old lines for new lines for their retailers. This helps ...

Re: 2 wt line question

A thought, Remember a 2wt DT and a 2wt WF have the same amount of weight in the first 30-33 ft of fly line. That is what makes them 2 weight lines and is a standard in the industry. Some of the newer lines are half weight or full weight heavy for the faster action rods, and should be marked as such....

Re: Is Wisconsin open Sunday?

Homeboy comment, Josh. Don't make it about fear. Show some love. Your fine to fish Today in the land of cheese. Here are two selections from the Wis. DNR website. "The early catch-and-release trout season opens at 5 a.m. on March 5 and runs until midnight May 1." This is last years, where they tried...

Re: caddis dry flies

I tried pre-cutting wing length and it did not like it as much. I think Charlie Craven does it that way. It made it harder for me to walk the thread up through the splay for a few turns. I like grabbing the whole bundle of buts after my wing is set and cutting them then. The wing is stable as heck w...

Re: caddis dry flies

WB Thoughts, If hair is not splaying, you may have bad hair(not yours personally). Most elk hair sold through the market should be hollow and thus constricting the hair tubes should make it splay. Rump hair or hair close to the tail can sometimes be solid and is poor for tying these patterns, I have...

I like waders. OK I'm just just making a stupid comment for my first post to see if I was able to master the first step on the new board.
