    billhouk: Ha! Cleverly stated, and there is some truth in your comment as well.

    Thanks for all the tips, guys. Snow predictions for Townsend will keep at home this time. I printed and filed the responses to my query, so your efforts were not wasted. I'm immensely disappointed in...

    Thanks, Warren. Dock's is where we are staying, and your tips about the rocks there are most welcome. Thanks.
  4. Suggestions for Little River in Tennessee?

    I am heading down to Townsend, Tennessee, to fish the Little River or nearby. Do any of you have suggestions for me? It will be my first time there. I will wade and fish from the bank and hope to...

    You are absolutely correct, DaleW, but perhaps even more apt in this case might be: "What are you going to do...fish or teach fishing?"

    My experience in teaching folks to fly fish (tenkara or otherwise) is limited, but from teaching others I was surprised to learn that once I get into teaching mode, I am just as thrilled when the...

    Neil the Chronicler -- I agree that using hooks sans points might tend to eliminate the catching, but I question the conflation of fishing without a reel and eliminating the catching.

    Have a care, Neil. A slippery slope you are on. Next you may consider omitting the reel. ~Paul

    Yes, Ray, I misspoke. By "bead head" I meant bead-chain head. That is one of the two types of Clouser Minnows I tie, one type lead eyes and the other bead-chain. I have several sizes of chain I use,...

    I am assuming that when the article refers to a "Clouser", the reference is to a Clouser Minnow and not to one of the many other flies that Bob Clouser has designed. Is that correct?

    I like and...

    The only insect I know of that has a red tail is smaller than a grasshopper, the Kelsus cauda-rubra. Its imitation is soft-hackled and is believed to be a member of the genus Neimi. ~Paul

    As an old guy myself, I have lost enough friends to the spirit world that I now make a point of telling people close to me what a big part they played in my life, that they matter to me. ~Paul

    I'm not sure who the anonymous LIvingston, MT, Chronicler is, but I'd like to thank him or her for that enlightening post. The book sounds much better than the publisher's Website presented it, at...

    David -- I came up with this from the publisher's Web site. Their blurb of the book includes the following: "Geoff Bernardo?s book is the first of its kind; an enthusiastic and respectful look at...

    Please tell us more. At $65, this volume is a serious purchase. One suspects that the author covers such species as carp and buffalo/freshwater drum. But "alternate species" leaves a lot of unknowns....

    Well reasoned and well stated, Chris. I emphatically agree on all points. Your use of "brownlining" sent me to Google, however. A new word for me. That kind of fishing fits right in with your earlier...

    I should probably add that the goldfish poaching was strictly Catch & Release. I was not a mean little boy, just one who lacked any better place to fish.

    I've started doing some micro fishing, catching Shiners from a little crick. At least I think they are shiners. The little fellows are moderately skittish, and thus I can't use a fish-at-my-feet size...

    Sorry to hear that you broke your Nissin, Mike. I do hope that you broke it because of a big fish and not a car door.
