    The gurus over on Clark's classic forum have said you need to remove the spring, stretch it a little, heat it to 350 to re-temper it, and put it back. Some said replace the spring with one that adds...

    Cold always does it for me. Icy cold. Ice water. I see you're in Hailey. Set it in some snow. (I miss Silver Creek!)

    My wife cast one of those Joan Wulff's with the thumb dent at the factory in Twin Bridges last summer. I've been hearing about how much she liked it ever since! I bought a "production" Payne 100...

    My first job was guiding at Unalakleet in 1981/82. It was then called Silvertip Lodge. I was 17, fresh out of high school, missing graduation/prom and all that because the lodge was opening and I...

    North Fork of the Unalakleet River in Alaska, 8 miles up river from the village of Unalakleet. There's others up there I'm sure, but this one has fresh kings, one day from the salt, little pressure,...

    I tie everything (dries) on Orvis straight eyes, the big eye #4641 for sizes 12 and down, and the standard eye #1523 for 8's and 10's. I like the look, and I think they give the clearest shot to the...

    Sage 490 LL Graphite II. If I could only have one, that's it without question. Followed closely by the Sage 389 LL Graphite II. Both are early 90's vintage. I've tried a lot of others, and...

    Hands down, Silver Creek on the Conservancy, especially on a calm sunny day. Wyoming's Flat Creek through the Elk Refuge would be a close second. Cheesman is right up there too.

    I also fish the...

    Wing looks like white polypropylene, like strands from a braided white rope. Could also be nylon monofilament, but don't see too much white mono around. There is a strand or two in there that...

    If those were the only choices, I might go take a golf lesson or something. Maybe sporting clays.

    I wish they'd all show the measurements of their tapers. Some do, most don't. The WF market is a nightmare. Some are like casting a Rapala. Some are nearly level.

    All I need is a DT and a...

    That is correct. In Wyoming, the landowner "owns" the stream bottom and banks. Can't anchor, can't wade, can't touch it. More BS.

    I've spent some considerable time fishing in and around Key West, and there's definitely land-base opportunities for tarpon, snook, sharks (a blast on the fly rod), cudas, etc. Snappers, grunts, and...

    They're the only small trout reels I use. They're light. They're simple (not much to go wrong). And, yes, that sweet sound.
    And, when compared to other "high end" reels, they're not really that...

    I live 30 minutes from the Green. It will fish just fine for wade fishing at that time of year. The current "flood" will not hurt the fishing then. If anything, it will clean the river of silt and...
