  1. Re: Inspired by FG's Passing Lane Post - Holding Up the Line

    Amen, Joe! And drive on, brother...drive on!

    I actually get a big kick out of slowing down in front of tailgaters. And I waited in line as long as the folks behind me will. I OWN that spot...

    Re: Organizing your fly boxes

    I have a box of nymphs with a few streamers in the lid, a dry fly/soft hackle box, and a warm water box that contains streamers and poppers. I usually carry 2 of the 3. I won't need the warm water...

    Re: Passing Lanes

    This actually varies from state to state. When I took driver's education and went to truck driving school and took defensive driving in Texas, there was no "slower traffic keep right" on Texas...

    Re: Asian Made?

    Yes, EdD, from what I understand your friend is correct. I think folks were trying to inject a bit of humor in an attempt to put this in some perspective. It was an obvious over-statement. As real...

    Good. Tell her to lay on that pain pump, JC. No need to be shy. :lol:

    Tell her the LTW and I are thinking about her.

    Re: The Missour Fish-In page is up!!!

    I think presentation is more important than pattern, but the ones I have had a lot of success with are:

    #16 gold-ribbed hare's ear soft hackle nymph
    #18 partridge and orange
    #20 partridge hackle...

    Re: Happy NEWS!!!! (not flyfishing)

    Thanks, Doug. Restoring a little balance is a good thing.

    It's like litter, you pack it out!, out of respect for the stream.

    Re: The Missour Fish-In page is up!!!

    If you mend upstream until it's quartering downstream, of course most strikes (that you are aware of) will occur on the rise. But you are probably missing a LOT of takes. If I am fishing a soft...
  15. Re: Your thoughts on the fish and fishing ethics...

    In the Ozarks, this cleaning fish streamside and leaving the offal in the water is considered the RIGHT thing to do by most. It's an old cultural practice that goes back to the hillbilly days of...

    Re: The Missour Fish-In page is up!!!

    I fished Bennett Springs last week. I must say it was a far superior experience to what I recall from the past. This was my first trip there to fish in about 6 years. Fish quality was MUCH better....

    Re: Any Comments?

    I can see Norman Maclean. Even though it was one novel, it was a very good one that had a distinct impact on fly fishing.

    Redford? Does he even fly fish? I know he made "the movie" (out of...
  19. Re: Think You have problems? (Not Flyfishing)

    Taken out of context like that, no way I'd run that in the local paper! However, my point (IN CONTEXT) is that if we don't change the way we train and/or pay our critical job skills people like...

    Re: Another small shop bites the dust.

    Hate to hear it, Ron. But it seems to be going around. Here in the Ozarks, the indies seem to be holding their own...which is a bit ironic here in the shadow of Bass Pro Shops HQ and flagship store.
  21. Re: Think You have problems? (Not Flyfishing)
