    It's nominally equivalent to a modern 6 weight, although with the way line weights have crept up, it may very well cast better with a 5. And with South Bend especially, two of the same model rod,...

    To be strictly accurate, most of those weren't named by the tyers themselves, but my somebody else. I believe, for example it was Lefty Kreh who renamed the Deep Minnow the "Clouser Minnow". Griffith...

    The Maryland "Sping Pause" is even shorter -- second weekend in March until the last Saturday. And that's only for stocked waters -- no closed season for wild trout waters.

    Exactly! Convenient and easy to digest.

    The fact that they stand out like a sore thumb against the bottom doesn't hurt either.

    Newly molted stoneflies are even lighter than that. I've watched a guy nymphing riffles (something I seldom do) coming up with fish after fish on a snow-white stonefly nymph. Of course in...

    Many of those patterns called "skunk" are, in fact, tied with skunk. (As mentioned, the steelhead flies are an example.) Also, as mentioned above, it's been used as a sub for polar bear for decades....

    While it's true that too long handles make for hard carrying, there's almost no such thing as "too long" if you're forced to fish from the bank, either because wading is prohibited or is impractical....

    That's nice and fishy looking. It appears that you could stop right after tying in the marabou and still catch fish with it.

    That's certainly one route that works.
