I have been lead free on my fishing equipment for a while now. Once I started using tungsten beads/coneheads I never went back to lead wraps to seat the bead.

I also don't think I have ever fit any of these catagories, but this was a fun read. I have always been a "match the hatch" kind of person because I find it interesting to see what they are keying in on eating. I've enjoyed learning about the different insects and the variations they can have from s...

Just curious if anyone is seeing many tricos yet? They have been sporatic up here so far, but haven't been to SE MN in almost a month. Hoping to head that way later this week.
