Re: FISHING

I'm going to let it warm up and clear things out before I get out again. I know of some open water, but several streams up here are almost completely locked up in certain sections.

Re: Weather Looks Poor for Fishing Anyone Tying Flies?

What caddis patterns were you working on? Nothing that necessarily has a known pattern name, but has been a good lead fly for me over the years when fishing a double nymph rig. Scud hook: I was tying 12's today but also fish 14's and a few 10's Tungsten bead with lead free wire behind it. Was using...

Re: Weather Looks Poor for Fishing Anyone Tying Flies?

Was tying some copper John's yesterday and just got back from tying some caddis nymphs from alt church at Mend. Looks like I might get my nymph box finished up sooner than I thought with the forecast we have projected this week.

Re: Trout Hunter Fluorocarbon Tippet Material

I like the fact they have half sizes. Their floro seems fine, but I had twisting problems with their mono. It would get tangles and twisted up. Thought it might just be the day and larger dry flies I was using but it happened multiple times. I switch to other brands of tippet with the exact same fli...

Re: LSOHC Dec.11th Trout Habitat Presentation

I hope they figure things out before they wreck another stream. I'm sure it won't happen, but at this point hoping they don't make things worse is the best we have.

Re: SHORT - Fly Tying Video's

I have been in the shop several times over the years and ordered online countless times. Very nice guys running the shop and great service. If I can't find it in one of the local shops here they are one of the first places I go.

Re: Perfect Weather for Weekend Angling

Got out with 2 friends on Sunday. They were mostly fishing streamers and I started out nymphing. Fish were taking both when presented correctly. Everything I caught came on a scud trailer except for one that took the lead nymphs. Once fish started to rise I fished midge dries for the rest of the day...

Re: Perfect Weather for Weekend Angling

Buddy and I fished south of 90 yesterday. Fishing was good with action most of the day. There were plenty of midges out, but only a few pods of rising fish and a few scattered risers here and there. I think I got 5 fish on dries and everything else came subsurface. Couldn't get a more beautiful day ...

Re: Happy New Year & 2019 SE MN Trout Opener

Happy 2019 everyone! Bought myself a Critchfield 4wt on one of his all around tapers. Also got some skins for soft hackles and salmon flies for Christmas. Hope everyone has a great 2019 fishing season.
