    Say, thanks for that link. Very interesting. I've been following the NW snowpacks casually and can see that things are pretty socked in. I read an a headline a couple of weeks ago that Idaho may...

    Looks like this could become a trend for the next few years. I imagine wading across the Madison is pretty tough these days!
    Thanks for the update Neil.

    Excellent points, Neil. Remember Gadabout Gaddis? I loved that guy. I can hardly watch current fishing shows because of the push to sell stuff. This isn't confined to commercials...its the whole...

    Thanks. I Wish they were, but alas 40 years is a long time and we went our separate ways early on. It'd be fun to chat with them now, after so long.
    Cheers, Bill

    I figure if I can hop over it most places its a small creek. Otherwise, its a big creek, or a stream, etc. I've caught trout, no kidding, in a creek that was only a yard wide at the widest, and the...

    Haven't got one on a fly, yet, but I've caught quite a few on jigs with plastic grubs, so I know they'll readily take a fly. Drum in these parts average roughly 2 to 6 or 7 pounds and their...

    Thanks Doc,

    This article kindled to flame some very fond memories I hold from my years as a young fly fishing enthusiast. Specifically I recall a small feeder creek to the Middle Fork of the...

    Thanks, Dave. Me too. I'll figure those carp out one of these days.

    Wonderful. They're gonna love/hate me at work, now, for perhaps a good month or so.

    Thank you!

    I'm no expert. I use an 8 weight. I'd have to play the bigger fish pretty much for a week or so on my 3 weight. I think most people are using 6 to 8 weight gear. There are a lot of smaller fish...

    Understand the sentiment. I note, however, that there are a lot of people fishing there that are probably not in posession of a license, from either state. I see them all over the Texas lakes and...

    You're right! It's pretty tricky as to just where you're required to have the Okie licence in posession, particularly if the water is low and you wish to wade. Since I want to be able to fish from...

    Thank you sir. We have those hybrids down this-a-way, too. They get pretty big, they love streamers and they pull really hard. They'll take you into the dark corners of your backing, too. Good...

    Thanks, Neil. Joe Brooks was one of my more favorite outdoor writers.

    Here in Texas, we seek big fish, little fish, and in the middle fish, but the one we seek the most is the one that gets...

    I can't imagine how many holes I'd have in my hands cleaning that many panfish. Ouch. Great day's fihing, Rick.

    Hi Mike,

    Hinemaia! Wow, I never new that. I never saw anything on the road map except Hatepe. Cool! I think I knew about brook trout there, but I thought that they were more found in the...

    I found it by going through the readers comments place.

    Very much enjoyed reading this. The area is familiar to me. I wonder if the author has fished the Hatepe stream? That place was magic...

    Thank you, my friend. At this point in time I need all the chub help I can get. Apparently, a little in the trout department, as well!
  21. Hmmm. I think you just described England.

    Hi Rick,

    I keep my fishing rods in the truck pretty much all the time, removing them only on occasion, temporarily. I get so used to them being there I don't really notice them much anymore. A...

    Hi Richard,

    Great article. That's my kind of fishing, sans nettle, of course. In Bulgaria this summer I duplicated that experience on their streams. BG has nettle all over the place, and my...

    Have heart, Ladyfisher. There've just got to be a whole bunch of kids out there as gullible as I was to the lure of the sport. To me, fly fishing was a condensation of all the good things nature...

    Hey Ralph! Good one! I feel very much as do you on the matter. Trout, and trout environs, are to be appreciated and responsibly enjoyed, not worshiped. If one paid too much attention to the...
