    That may be the case. As I said before, the guide was very particular about where he wanted us to stand.

    The boat was flowing downstream, but I understand your point.




    If I remember correctly, my friend performed one reach cast. The guide immediately corrected him and told him to do it the...

    Definitely not know-it-alls. :D We told him upfront that we were not trout experts and wanted to learn.

    We did not ask why. I was in the front of the boat, so all this literally happened "behind...

    As my friend said, our guide was a bit "prickly". In his defense, I think that was partially due to not having a day off in over a month.

    As you note, maybe an aerial mend was not aggressive...

    I've been going back and forth on how to spend that $16 million I have laying around. I am conflicted no more!

    Interesting that Penn State didn't make the list. George Harvey (and later Joe Humphreys) taught a legit fly fishing class to thousands of students.

    Thanks. I thought I had read it on Blanton's board. I seem to remember another thread where he was a little more critical of it.

    I did not see tedshuck's comment, but maybe I don't know how to...

    I have been using the Orvis knot for quite awhile. I think it's easier to tie than the DK and at least as strong.

    I have both a BPS and a Cabela's about twenty minutes away. Both parking lots are full whenever I go, so I don't know why they'd close either one.

    I fish when I can. That's generally in the middle of the day.

    The heat can be brutal, but you usually have the fish to yourself.
