Re: The WxDaddy is back!

Ha! It was a lot of fun filling-in, but happy to get back to regularly scheduled programming and some more "normal" sleep. Real bummer in my opinion with this last storm - underestimated the dry air. Still no fun to be out there today though. At home with a fire in the fireplace and about to tie som...

Re: fishing report Jan 6

I've been nymphing without an indicator the majority of the time. I'm a big fan of leaders with a brighter color in the middle to help with depth control as much as (or probably more) than detecting strikes. The subtlety of detecting strikes on a tight line is a lot of fun. If you don't tie your own...

Re: Stream Conditions

I got out this afternoon and had a stellar few hours on-stream. Was north of I-90 and checked out two different branches of the same system. Stopped by one of my favorite spots - it was running high and dirty but would have been great for streamer fishing or maybe nymphs. Looked elsewhere and ended ...

Glass rods

Spinoff from the 5 rod topic... I've paid little to no attention to the fiberglass rods that companies are producing these days. Are any of you fishing the new (or an old favorite?) glass rods and what do you like about them? Always seemed a novelty to me but I'd consider it for a change of pace. I ...

Re: 5 driftless rods?

I'm a big fan of 9' rods, whether it's a 3,4, or 5wt. I have an 8.5' 5wt that I fish often and still occasionally wish it was 9'. I just like the extra length to get over tall grasses and the feel of the rod when casting. Those 3 aside, I've got a bamboo rod that I rarely fish (but still an awesome ...

Re: What type of Flyfisherman are you??

Weird article. I'm glad that guy got it out of his system, he's probably better off for it.

Cast to your own riffle, however that may be.
