    Next Thursday looks like it should be a user-friendly day for an old scarecrow to hit a wetside lake, according to the weather forecast. Monday is maybe looking like decent surf fishing conditions here. And I'll probably try to fish next Saturday, since it will be the last chance to extract my...

    Day 4 was good. 5 mile hike, tons of midges. We took a newbie out. She slayed fish all day. We had a nice fire. Newbie got bored it was so good. My friend Dan really put on a show. He is an old school dry fly master. On the way out Dan decided to fish some streamers, which was weird...

    After spending the last week in a nice warm location, I spent the morning fishing somewhere not named MA13! Beautiful day; cold, clear skies and a nice crisp breeze. 4-5 rezzies landed, 4 cutts and a mini blackmouth to round out the day! Here's a pic of the nicest cutty landed. A bit snakey...

    I'm starting to take all day floats with my OSG Stealth Pro, and want to take multi-day floats with it eventually. The pic is prior to launching Sunday for a 9hr trip. The saddle bags have all my terminal tackle, the repair kit, vittles and beverages for the day, there's room to spare in them...

    All week I'd been stalking the forecast for today but figured I'd have other stuff to do once I saw it would be really nice. I didn't realize I had tomorrow off and so with a longer weekend, I can get stuff done and go fishing? The family gave me the all clear and I was set. I cranked out a...

    I have friends in Oregon who had a successful elk hunt and they're sending me a piece of hide. In exchange I want to tie them some flies. They have a cabin on the John Day and fish it for smallmouths and rainbows. What are some of the flies I can send them in exchange for their kindness?

    Any day here is better than being in a hot stuffy house full of awkward people. Amazingly, one fish to hand, on a 1" Sculpin pattern.

    I can't express how sad I am that this day went unrecognized here on the forum. On Sunday, I installed two new toilets for a lucky couple on Orcas Island. Coincidence? I think not. We can't let this happen again! I'm appointing Swimmy as the forum's 2018 World Toilet Day "official" social...

    Got this ono on saturday with my friend offshore of Hilo. Missed an even bigger one when he shook the hook at the boat. Picked up some mahi and small ahi at a buoy. Lots of good food for family this week. Then went bottom fish and had fun catching papio and weke ula. Ono have sharp teeth...

    My employer decided to make Veteran's Day one of our annual paid holidays a few years back so I took full advantage on Friday. I thought it was a good move by the company, albeit quite a few years overdue. Thanks to all you Vets! I hit South Sound in the morning on the incoming tide knowing I...

    Most of my favorite lakes close on the 31st so today was my last day. Released ten fish or so of which three were "BROWNS"! When I catch one Brown, I feel blessed but three was crazy awesome. One of the Browns was very close to 3 lbs as was one of the Bows. All fish caught on big dragon...

    Biggest trout I have landed on fly so far, thankfully my friend was equipped with a proper camera vs cell phone pics (though new phones are decent quality)

    ....was Thursday-the first day it snowed here on the frozen tundra. We were up early to drive to Spokane for some medical appointments and it had rained during the night, froze, then snowed a little. Not much but a real relief from the summer heat and being held prisoner inside by dense smoke...

    For the last day of fishing I hit the San Joaquin river in devils post pile national monument.... Woah, what an amazing place. The hiking and scenery were jaw dropping, and the dry fly fishing was phenomenal - my best day of dry fly fishing ever. They weren't big- 10" browns and 8-10" bows, but...
