Do you still have the LL?
You guys are in trouble, I'm practicing all winter!
This nice male steelhead made for a great day recently.
You can make the hook ride in either direction you want to, it's all in the way the head is applied over the hook eye. Directions are on the package.
I posted a tutorial over on the "Online" board for an emerald shiner streamer under a post "NY Winter" in case anybody is interested in a streamer pattern, and may not have seen that post. I can move...
Select a hackle feather the appropriate size for the throat and tie it in soft hackle style.
Tie in a couple Krystal...
Start by winding on a base from the front of the shank (80% mark) back to the hook point and then back up just shy of the starting point. Take a fair size pinch of the minnow belly dub (approximate...
Materials for my "Emerald Shiner": Daiichi 1750 4xl streamer hook, #6-10, this is a #6
Hareline Ice Dub: Minnow Belly, Hareline Ice Dub: Emerald Green, Saddle Hackle: Cerise, Krystal Flash: Peacock,...
Sure Scott. The last brownie was 17". I will post materials later.
Winter started late here with really very little snow until very late December. Got hit with 12" and then another 6". Then we had a big thaw and fishing for Inlands was pretty darn good for 4-5 days....
Cabelas has Redington CPX's on sale for $130 right now in 4wt. The regular price is $299. That is a tough price to beat. That rod might be a little faster than you are looking for. My personal...
I tend to release all trout in streams that are all natural reproduction with no stocking. On marginal streams that are mostly stocked but have some natural reproduction I try to keep holdover fish...
Anything new here Randy? About that time?
I have always wanted a Sage LL in either 3 or 4 wt. Everytime I try bidding on one they run right out of sight. I have also found that Sage SLTs fit my casting stroke perfectly for Dry flies. I think...
Cortland 8' 4wt Brook series.
Absolutely a Cortland Brook series rod. Sensitive, light, balanced, and throws a dry fly well too. $200 range +-.
I'm in big guy!
I was very surprised at the package I received in the mail today. What an outstanding and totally AWESOME gift. A gift was not necessary, but this was very much appreciated and will be...
Randy, glad you reconsidered. NOTHING will keep me from coming next year. I hope I still have a RESERVED bunk. I missed not sleeping with "Uncle Ed"! I bet the Moose was Happy though!
Ralph some nice pics, where did you get into the Brookies??
I heartily second Joe's post.
I know Steve at Midwest and agree he could hook you up. If you are specifically targeting Salmon get at least a 9 wt if your fish go beyond the high 20's.
I like the idea that an unweighted nymph will move around with the current more simulating the natural, or a vulnerable natural. You can add a weighted nymph, split shot or whatever above it to...
Here in NY State I have found that just the copper ribbing wire is what I use most on pheasant tails. No bead and no other body weighting. On Hare's ears I prefer the opposite.
If you are in the Estes Park area I highly recommend the Upper Big Thompson River. It is easily accessible along the highway and the 'bows and some hybrid cuttbows are quite willing.
