    While I know how annoying it can be when the elders try to "learn you", they probably were just trying to point you in the right direction in their minds. They didn't realize that you fully comprehend many aspects of flyfishing including the wet fly swing and that your choice of nymphs wasn't neieve, it was by choice.

    The video looks cool. Only problem is that the cmaera didn't pick up the hoards of boats and other anglers that are always there with the steelhead :p

    "guides water only" is a term I've never heard before. Are people saying John tries to run people out of certain runs? I don't get what is being implied.

    Sorry guys, my opinion comes from growing up fishing that river and my association with them. I litterally caught them (or i should say one of them) spying on me in the bushes in a run about 8 yrs ago. That's about as far as I'll go here.

    "East Fork" I'll follow Panhandle's lead here.:hmmm: I have no problem with folks trying to make a 'living,' even a very good 'living,' but might there be a limit as to how far you're willing to take that?

    If this were Southern KalEfornia, the answer would be no?:confused:

    Amy has recieved several warnings from the fish and game about harrassing other guides and fisherman. She has been known to try to bump people out of "her water". As a transplant to the area I can't understand why she would do this, not that anyone should have the right.

    Regardless of what people think of them, that was a well put together and thoughtful video.

    Roger that ZP. Interesting part is that via a boat you have 'unlimited access' to water that a 'bankie' could only dream about. But ..... what's to add?:mad:

    Forgot to add: John, your new puppies ... how old? Cute as can be even in a small photo.

    Yep, these were the stories I've heard. The story goes, that she is a "female" guide, and can getaway from "bumping" people around. I guess she takes advantage of her feminin side on the river. Other guides and fisherman can't get upset and threaten or beat a woman, so she continues to do it. I wasn't sure there was any truth to it or not.


    Sources?

    How can you not be a fan of him? He is a big bunny rabbit. A big furry bunny rabbit.

    The owner of the fly shop at Sandy is definitely not a big bunny rabbit. He is what nightmares are made of. His own son sugar coatted it and called him a carmudgeon.

    isnt this about catching steelhead on the swing...this sounds more like "days of our lives" shut up and fish.
