Bimini Twist in the backing.
I grew up looking at those Norwalk Islands. I got one of my first kisses on one of them. The fishing was fun too but that was so long ago.
Wild animal encounters? Yes, but I forget her name.
Has any of you ever fished a crane fly hatch? Truly exciting!!
But who's counting, right?
I tried a Sage One a couple of weeks ago. By the second cast I sensed that this rod was designed for ME.
After 3 days our fish count is 25.5, with me holding a modest 1.5 fish edge. I've been awarded a half fish for the one that was eaten very close to me by a shark. What a sight being that close to the...
That's one helluva day, Jim!
BTW! The hot fly for me today was Tim Tollett's Sexy Sixties crab pattern, a slightly hallucinogenic looking but incredibly effective pattern.
My good friend Burl and I just finished up day 1 of 5 days fishing the very north end of Andros, Bahamas. The weather was disappointing due to a low pressure system off the Carolina coast. Dark skies...
I think the Freestyle Lite is best.
As a life long prognosticator, I think I probably should have put off responding to this thread. :D
Feel free to add to this. IMHO, these drinks should be paired with:
Scotch - one or two good friends
Bourbon - a good bird dog
Martini- a beautiful woman
Far too many people these days just don't get it. I was on the Big Hole one day and worked my way across the far rock-strewn bank to the prime fishing area. It was 20 minutes or so of really arduous...
For 6 or 7 years in a row I fished in Montana with a brilliant guide and caster. One day, in the middle of an arduous casting session/lesson, a frustrated I asked "How long am I going to have to keep...
I sure do and for a number of reasons. I've had wonderful days floating the Madison, the Missouri, etc. I never could have done that without a guide who owns and knows how to row a driftboat to the...
I think 15 minutes of daily practice forming good aerodynamic loops goes a long way towards improving one's casting, regardless of style.
Yup. Such is the game we play. Better luck tomorrow.
I have found that reach casts can be too hurried. Don't start the reach too soon but let your cast extend a lot more toward your target and then deliberately and rhythmically move your rod tip lower...
The glass definitely enhances the drink. While I love the classic martini glass, the Erie Cafe in Chicago has some extra large ones that are very thin and elegant. For beer, like Marco, I prefer a...
I seem to remember that Julia Child once said that the ratio of gin to vermouth in the classic martini should be the same as olive oil to vinegar in classic vinaigrette, that is 5:1.
The power of the life force is so compelling. I agree with you that he's a true hero and any pity should be directed to those people who just scooted on by, too consumed by their own trivialities.
I saw a promising thread with Drinking[/B ]in the title but it was about fracking. There was a thread on good recipes for this time of year. But how about one on great drinks. Alcohol. I love beer,...
