    Wow, that's one energetic cat! I'd love to have one jump like that (so my post title would be accurate)! Around here they just seem to go deep and run like crazy!

    They sure will! Couple of those guys took me into the backing and wrestled me pretty good; I thought I was never gonna get 'em up top!

    Well, not really, but they were hitting a black wooly bugger. Caught about six this size or larger the day before the 4th; this was the only one I beached to take a pic. They put a nice bend in my...

    Thanks for the review; nice selection you have there. I have to admit I've been tempted to pick one up, especially during one of their special pricing sessions. But I have too many neglected rods...

    Reel seat question

    My 2wt rod has a slide ring seat; it's the only one I've got and I'm not a fan. Seems like the reel works loose pretty easily; it's actually slipped off a time or two. I have to check it all the...

    Good 'gill day

    I took my little 2wt out on Friday; hadn't fished it in a while. Just a local urban drainage lake not far from my house; I still call this spot the Cottonwood Grove even though someone inexplicably...

    Fly ID

    Can anybody put a name to this nymph? I took my little 2wt out after bluegills; it still had this Coachman tied on, and the remains of a dropper lead. I was going to tie on one of my old stand-bys...

    Guess I'll go with white crappie. The "stop" (do fish have foreheads?) didn't look as abrupt, the body seemed thinner, and the eye placement seemed a little different. Everything else sure matches...

    Another mystery fish

    Caught this guy Saturday at a little urban drainage lake I frequent; a new one on me. He's about 6" long; I'd say crappie but I've never caught one there before, plus the body shape doesn't look...

    Finally, a good day

    Spent Saturday on a couple of urban drainage lakes with good success. Spent about 3 hours and caught 20 or so, mostly nice 'gills in the 7-8" range, and a few small bass in the same range. Just...

    I've found that the only way to determine if a particular fly will catch fish is to tie it on and get it in the water. Otherwise no fly seems to work ;).

  22. OK, here's another dumb question...

    How much difference is there between a WF and a DT in the same weight? Thought I might try some lines on my South Bend bamboo before I buy one, but all my lines are WF and I was really thinking...
