    Any YouTube channels or specific videos I should be watching just to bring myself up to speed on different techniques, equipment, etc? I just found the channel "The New Fly Fisher" and I've liked their videos. There's one with Joe Humphreys and I really liked hearing someone that experienced...

    Howdy Sea-Run Cutthroat Fly tyers and Fly Fishermen, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this but I thought I would give it a try. I am teaching a class on Sea-Run Cutthroat Winter patterns and how to fish them at Peninsula Outfitters Fly Shop In Poulsbo, Wa. This Saturday March 3, from 10:30...

    I'm thinking about picking up a new single handed trout rod, specifically for dry flies on the Deschutes and other northwest rivers. I'm torn between picking up a 4wt or 5wt. I'm considering a used or closeout Sage Circa in 589-4 or 489-4, or a Burkheimer DAL in either 4 or 5wt, essentially a...

    I came across a very, very rare Granger Favorite last month and it is on its way back from restoration by Scott Whitman (Longmont, CO). This Favorite is possibly one of the rarest Granger Favorites ever made, and certainly still in existence. Scott only knows of 4 or 5 others in existence...

Starting off I think my favorite fish of the year was this little chinook caught while fishing with...

    Has anyone found a glove they're really happy with? I probably have 5 pairs of gloves for winter steelheading and all of them fall short of what I need / want. I'm looking for something that will keep my hands warmer than the outside air if they get wet handling a fish, half finger or...

    Eagle Claw 8.5" PowerLight rod purchased at Pay-n-Pak Hardware Store in 1981 and with an all metal Garcia Mitchell 300 except blue plastic line reducer piece I have inserted and usually use 8 -15# Mono. Have not used her for a couple years. Kinda aching to use it again. So what you'll all...

    Looking to trade outright for a ready to fish 4 weight combo. I will consider 3 and 5 weight combos but nothing longer than 9'. I have the renowned Winston TMF in pristine condition, it has been fished once by its previous owner and that it. Rod 9.99/10 (slightest discoloration on the top of...

    Sooooo yesterday I looked in my fly box and there was some weird sh*t going on in there. All of my clousers had been scraped to death by rocks, hooks bent from collisions, and the works. And I make those things bulletproof. The thing is, nothing can protect a fly from an angler who sucks at...

    Sage Fans, Curious what everyone's pick (model and length) would be if you could have one Sage Rod at each weight (3 weight through 8 weight)? Though I own/owned other great rods, I'm primarily a Sage guy and haven't seen a thread specifically like this after searching so thought I'd throw it...

    I have to go with Henry's Fork or South Fork...either way I could spend a long time fishing in Island Park and be very happy. Never fished the Mo or the Green but the Green is on my bucket list for sure. Have heard very good things about the North Platt as well.

    Im heading to the Mo in early July and am starting to pump out the flees. What do you guys like? I've never fished it before but am a pretty decent spring creek angler and fly tier. Thanks for all your help and pretty pictures

    What do you guys like for a lead substitute for wrapping your hooks before tying? Is there one thing that works better than another?

    I am currently tying up a storm, in preparation for the ice melting in a little over a month. Trying to fill up the chiro fly box. If you have a favorite, please leave me a pic!

    I'm looking for local knowledge here. I know there's a good amount of you streamer-beaters out there, and I find myself aspiring to do the same as the water warms a bit. Being a westside guy, swung flies are the norm. And they're great, and the swing is great, and so are bull trout. But there's...

    I would like to see pictures of the top 3 favorite cronies in your fly box. Your most productive and go-to patterns that you depend on to quickly get in touch with the fish. My searches on the board have turned up sporadic chironomid images but I don't find a devoted thread to displaying a wide...

    I admit it. I am, and always have been narrow minded when it comes to chili. My Pops' is from Texas. When i was growing up I always looked forward to chili night. Whenever i went camping and cracked open the Nalley's, I was always let down. Let down on flavor that is, but never let down on...

    First off...this is not a bead thread. If your favorite egg pattern is a bead, great. But don't debate it. So...What is your favorite egg pattern for winter steelhead. For me, I'm not a fan of the traditional glo bug. I like those nuke eggs or a homemade loose yarnball with a small bead tied in...
