    So basically you're saying you don't value what people on the Internet do enough to help them pay for it. Good to know.

    I'm just trying to figure out a way of continuing to piece together a living in this sport. In the long run, Parks' Fly Shop isn't it. Richard is 71 and not interested in selling or even making...
  6. Crowdfunding for fly fishing content creators?

    Some of the podcasts I listen to (non fly-fishing) utilize crowdfunding to pay the bills, and I'm fascinated by this as a way of supporting fly fishing businesses, in particular for monetizing "free"...

    A little bird told me that copper is also really good, sometimes even better than purple, as long a you use fluoro fire orange thread.

    Always in the cripple version. Always.

    By the same token, you're looking at the Lamborghinis and Guccis and diamond rings of the fly fishing world. There are plenty of perfectly usable Kias and Levis and beaded necklaces you buy at the...

    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...

    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...
