    Laughed out loud when I read this. I feel your pain brother! Fish feed heavily on midges on some of the tailwaters down this way - tiny, tiny stuff in the 26 - 30 range. Maddening when you have...

    Highly recommend you do this. I called Poppy when I was putting my first spey outfit together and he gave me great advice. Extremely nice fellow. His web site is www.redshedflyshop.com.

    Thanks Jack. I'm going to try and get up there and meet you guys. My 8 year old will likely have a football game Saturday morning, so I'll be coming up after that. Fish Saturday afternoon/evening...

    I would like to try and join you guys at least for a day of fishing if you have room for one more. I fish up there a lot and usually stay in Townsend. Beautiful area with miles and miles of great...

    Awesome! Great report. A lot of the young carp I catch seem to be bit on the thin side too. Maybe it takes some time for them to develop those shoulders and deep bodies. Purely speculation on my...

    Yep, you're right. Kind of got carried away there and hijacked your thread. My apologies.

    To answer your question, I think you would be better served spending your money elsewhere. Sounds like...

    Joe,

    The quality of any school, Orvis or otherwise, depends on the quality of the instructors. I have worked as an instructor at both Orvis and LL Bean schools, and found myself in the midst of...

    I'm with Buddy Sanders. I spent the better part of the last decade doing this kind of fishing and the small backpack is the way to go. Hiking boots for comfort on the hike in. Then switch to...

    Good stuff. Thank you for the read. I think it's important to get in a practice session or two on windy days when possible.
    Then it's no big deal when you run into windy conditions on the water.

    Very much enjoyed the read. Couldn’t agree more about practicing. One thing that hasn’t been mentioned, and that I find very helpful, is practicing casting flaws. Tailing loops are a good example. ...

    I'll throw another vote out there for the Nucanoe. It's made for the type of water you're describing. I have the 12 footer and like it quite a bit. Very stable boat - I take my two boys, ages 3 and...

    Seriously, what kind of fly are you going to use? I thought spoonbills could only be caught by snagging. You've piqued my curiosity.

    I've seen folks use laundry baskets for this. Economical enough I guess, but man, it sure is comical to see someone astream with a laundry basket strapped to his waist.

    Thank you for the kind words. Good to see some fellow carpers here! The days are getting longer and it won't be long before those brutes move up onto the flats. Can't wait!

    If your grocer takes a dim view of this and won't cooperate, wrap the offending ferrule in a bag of frozen peas. This works pretty well. I actually wrap only the male section of the ferrule just...
