    The poisoning has had no effect whatsoever. The way they actually wound up doing it, shocking a bunch of the cutts and then applying the rotenone, then putting the cutts back in, made much more sense...

    Swapping the wings for poly (EP/Widow's Web/Congo) works at least as well and drastically cuts tying time. A fly that looks just like the Royal save with fire orange thread for the tag, yarn wings,...

    Half cornmeal, half Bisquick, then salt, garlic powder, and pepper until you think it's seasoned enough, then a little more. Also works for trout (stocked and brookies only please)...

    That pattern will slaughter fish on the Yellowstone on the first or second warm day coming up...

    Here are my 5wt reel considerations:
    --machined?
    --has a palming rim?
    --is relatively cheap?

    As such I haven't swapped out my Orvis Mid-Arbor from 10-12 years ago and see no need to, until it...

    J-Vice has a smooth J-curve (hence the name) rather than a V notch. Doesn't sound like your issue is with room for your hand, but that's my favorite feature of the J.
  7. New Parks' Fly Shop fishing reports

    I just re-did the PFS fishing reports pages. One feature is going to be posting outside reports from folks who care to send them. Enough posters here are Yellowstone-area regulars that I hope to see...

    Source for Ultrasuede?

    Anyone know of a reliable source for Ultrasuede? I used to be able to get it in strips from one of the wholesale tying companies, but they no longer carry it. I use it in tying a San Juan Worm-style...

    MFC's fly tying materials haven't made as many inroads as their flies. Really Congo Hair or the standard or trigger point EP fibers are basically the same. I just design bugs for MFC and have to...

    I actually use early season cow elk, bleached. It's because of the color and that it doesn't flare quite as much.
  11. My Clacka Caddis and BRF-style cripple patterns...

    My Clacka Caddis and BRF-style cripple patterns all use Widow's Web (which is basically the same stuff as Congo Hair or EP Fibers, I use whatever brand has the color I want). Pics on Parks' Fly...

    The same basic fly with silver chain eyes and standard pearl rather than opal chenille and flash works well for the "shad hatch" on the White system.

    Those "Hackled Haystacks" in dark tan with a brown wing are my favorite Hecuba pattern on Yellowstone River floats. Eight years ago, you never saw Hecubas. Five years ago you started seeing a few in...

    I notice your hackle wraps are pretty far apart and the body is short. For the body, obviously just dub a little farther up the hook. For the hackles, I've actually found my turns are closer together...

    In the Montana regulations, tributaries are ALWAYS discussed separately from the main river and have been ever since I started guiding. The South Fork mainstem's bull trout angling opportunity is an...

    There are only a handful of waters in MT where it is legal to target bull trout. They are clearly listed in the regulations. If the company fished any other waters, they did it illegally and...

    That joint tedshuck mentions tends to cut thread in my experience. I exclusively use Griffin bobbins for this reason.

    Also, purple instead of orange thread and hackle can work like magic.

    Despite our numbers around here being technically "lower" than they were last year, this winter just has a different and better feel to it. Several long dry patches intercut with periods of a lot of...

    I've never been to Agate Creek, but the river in the lower Grand Canyon there is straightforward. Just hope you don't get any rain on the day you're there, because it blows fast and hard (though it...

  25. My most-recent YNP and Montana fly fishing newsletter

    I am more than lax about putting these out, but I hope to get better now that I've faced reality and accepted putting out one a month is the best I can do. All include some kind of "fly of the month"...
