    The original Skunks (both Green Butt and original) used skunk hair. It was replaced on commercial versions by bucktail since it's so much easier to get. You can get skunk hides from furriers for a...

    Curious how this works when making dubbing using synthetic yarns ala Doug Korn (which is the base for virtually all of my dubbings these days, even if I add natural fur or Ice Dub later).

    High water isn't going to be an issue this year. We've had record warmth for most of the winter (about 6 degrees above normal and rising, on average) and I wouldn't be at all surprised if runoff...

    Lots in Grebe and Cascade Lakes, a few in the upper Gibbon River. Good numbers in Wolf Lake too, but they're harder to catch there due to the lake's layout. Reintroductions underway or planned in a...

    I personally do about 3/4 boat trips of some kind (river floats, power boat trips, and ranch lake trips, in that order), but the shop as a whole does more like 55-60% walk trips. We get so many...

    Well, the amount of time it took me was probably 3x what a pro would take, and some things don't look right on phones. I also don't know how to do "responsive" design, aka making sites change how...

    The Yellowstone is a float river downstream of the park, but we typically run most of our hike-in walk trips in the canyons inside the park. There's plenty of places to not see any other anglers if...

    If you're staying near Ennis, early-mid July is probably best. That's really outside my operations area (Ennis is 2hrs from here), though I have contract outfitters based closer who work there. I do...

    Byron:

    I don't fish the Gardner very often in midsummer. To be quite honest, I'm floating with clients six days a week from early July through late September, so I don't fish as much as I'd like...

    Thanks guys. I've made paying my health insurance premium my goal for my writing income this year, and every little bit helps.

    You know, seeing you post these has got me wondering about using grizzly or dyed-grizzly hackle and so-called "grizzly" flashabou on these, as trout streamers. Hmmm....

    No underwing, but I kept the wing relatively short. This prevented most fouling.

    The other salmon fly I wouldn't be without was a bunny leech. 1/0-4 silver steelhead iron, silver dumbbell eyes,...

    Thanks for your comments. What you're seeing isn't a surprise. About half the book derives from my MA thesis and the other half is composed of other stories and essays. My MA thesis just...

    Well... very heavily modified. For that story he's sorta combined with a couple other shop guys who have come and gone over the years. That's why they call it "creative" nonfiction.
