    Time to get out while there's still some wadeable shoreline. Teakettle still has a bit Flathead is looking good (had a bit of color and was definitely up 5 days later) South edge of the Park is holding on to it, too Banks are even with the top of the truck; all destined for the...

    I bought several floor mats which I cut to shape to lay on the deck in an effort to prevent it from getting scratched up from cleats. The problem I am having is with the mat in the the bow beneath the casting brace. The deck slopes upward slightly and the mat scoots down and gets bunched up...

    Question: how does one extend the life of a PVC fly line for years of good casting? Is it possible to make them last as long as the PU product?

    I wish I knew about this re pre April 1st. The image of this endangered critter is great, no photoshop, just spirolina or something. Anyway, an interesting article that caught my attention. Swimmy, as our resident fashonisto/fishonisto, any thoughts on hair styles or breathing through your...

    When rowing with 2 fishermen, how do you position the boat so both can get clean lines? I normally fish with one friend and I have no real problem getting the boat in a good position. I usually nose the boat in towards the bank that we are fishing, and back row away to control drift and...

    So my wife has a business "thing" going on...and it happens to be in Hawaii. Never thought I would have the opportunity to go, but here it is! We will be on Maui intially. I planned on taking a flight right over to Molokai and go out with Captain Clay the day that my wife has her meeting...

    One end of one of the wire guides on my spey rod has popped out of the epoxy. Looking for the best diy repair option. I'm fairly handy but have never built a rod before. Thanks Brett

    There are some of you who have flyfishing, gear fishing, and camping sales ads that have been up for quite awhile, and not selling. If by chance it's something you just want gone, and would like the items to go into the hands of veterans/military in our Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and Got...

    Well, it was time. Had to say goodbye to my buddy this morning. The buddy that every afternoon would get up on the couch, put his paws up on the back so he could watch out the window and wait for me to get home. Odie the Vizsla was an awesome companion, hunting dog and family member. He was...

  14. Fly Tying
    I'm going to attempt to tie these two flies for SRC (and Coho) and have a shopping list gleaned from Nick Clayton's videos (by the way thank you Nick). I shopped around some on line. Golden pheasant tippets (for Squimp) seem to vary quite a bit. White saddle hackle is also something I will need...

    My daughter (7) had been begging for weeks. So it finally worked out to take her and my son (10) out on the Umpqua on Saturday. Beautiful lucky green water on St. Patrick's Day. Pizza already cooking in the bow. Headed downstream... Perfect drift. These kids learn fast... (And no, my kids...

    As a Gonzaga alumni it's been a welcomed surprise that they have advanced onto the Sweet 16 despite my early season criticism about how they would not make it this far. Flordia St. will not be a pushover even though GU is favored to win. I have enjoyed more college basketball this year than...

  18. Lakes
    Weather report for yesterday looked great so I packed up Sunday night and hit Pass Lake on Monday. Morning shadows were still long over the lake when I hit the water, which is still hovering around 48 degrees. I threw on a fly that most closely resembled a @Tim Lockhart favorite, in hopes of...
