    First heard about it in Ohio, also about 5 years ago. I don't know how big of a problem it is here, but I remember reading an OH Dept of Ag flyer about invasive species to be on the lookout.

    Scott , thanks for the step by step, and inspiring me to try my hand at them for steelhead. Is there any particular reason you reverse wrap the tinsel ribbing on the Coal car and not the signal light?

    I am guessing it's a brown trout, and have seen quite a few with the white and dark (not really black) edging on the fins. I think the distortion from the water ripples makes it look sort of like a...

    I use EP fibers, but I had heard that Congo hair was the same and much cheaper. A hank of EP fibers will probably last ten years of tying. It floats nice for the sparse hackled low profile flies and...

    Are the really big puffballs going to be edible or is it only the small ones? I noticed just the other day three puffballs about the size of small soccer balls growing along the roadside.
