That rod broke and Loomis replaced it with another rod which I promptly had taken out of my boat with the same reel and line. I dredged for awhile with no go. 45 minutes after that another guy hooks my line with the fish still attached. So I get the rod back again.

The fact that you were able to get your rod back after this happening once is pretty incredible. To have it happen twice with the same results... that's simply amazing.

Those monster browns can be such a nuissance!

I got this from some where.
Hook: 10-12 9671
tail: brown hen
body: mixed olive & brown dub, 2/3 length.
thorax: olive dub.
hackle: brown
shell case: black rump feathers.
often troll this tight to the cattails, or cast tight to the weeds and strip back.

Not true. Denny just doesn't think that it is as effective as other methods most of the time but, but he does understand the value of a vertical presentation.

As far as I know he never, ever fishes with an indicator.... and is known to mock those who do...... and I have often fished around him/ near him.....last time I saw him he was fishing out of a donut , flitting around around the edges of Diamond... some old school guys never make the transition....We started using indicators about 1990.
Klamath Lake (his home water) is not a classic chironomid lake either... except for certain areas it looks like pea soup and bait fish patterns are the rule covering lots of water... cast and retrieve buggers all day....
The Petric Park area ( aka the Petric Channel) is a cool area to fish however... it flows into the Wood River.... the bhml under an indicator works well down there...

When the boogey man goes to sleep at night he checks his closet for Denny Rickards.

Clearly the only true way to fish is the way that Denny does. Sometimes I don't even bother casting a line, ill just sit alone in my boat and ponder such questions as....if Denny uses an indicator, and nobody is around to see it, did it really happen?

Hi Nick,
You're being rather obtuse.... please elaborate...
