    You are absolutely correct, DaleW, but perhaps even more apt in this case might be: "What are you going to do...fish or teach fishing?"

    My experience in teaching folks to fly fish (tenkara or otherwise) is limited, but from teaching others I was surprised to learn that once I get into teaching mode, I am just as thrilled when the...

    Neil the Chronicler -- I agree that using hooks sans points might tend to eliminate the catching, but I question the conflation of fishing without a reel and eliminating the catching.

    Have a care, Neil. A slippery slope you are on. Next you may consider omitting the reel. ~Paul

    Yes, Ray, I misspoke. By "bead head" I meant bead-chain head. That is one of the two types of Clouser Minnows I tie, one type lead eyes and the other bead-chain. I have several sizes of chain I use,...

    I am assuming that when the article refers to a "Clouser", the reference is to a Clouser Minnow and not to one of the many other flies that Bob Clouser has designed. Is that correct?

    I like and...

    The only insect I know of that has a red tail is smaller than a grasshopper, the Kelsus cauda-rubra. Its imitation is soft-hackled and is believed to be a member of the genus Neimi. ~Paul

    As an old guy myself, I have lost enough friends to the spirit world that I now make a point of telling people close to me what a big part they played in my life, that they matter to me. ~Paul

    I'm not sure who the anonymous LIvingston, MT, Chronicler is, but I'd like to thank him or her for that enlightening post. The book sounds much better than the publisher's Website presented it, at...

    David -- I came up with this from the publisher's Web site. Their blurb of the book includes the following: "Geoff Bernardo?s book is the first of its kind; an enthusiastic and respectful look at...

    Please tell us more. At $65, this volume is a serious purchase. One suspects that the author covers such species as carp and buffalo/freshwater drum. But "alternate species" leaves a lot of unknowns....

    Well reasoned and well stated, Chris. I emphatically agree on all points. Your use of "brownlining" sent me to Google, however. A new word for me. That kind of fishing fits right in with your earlier...

    For us thickheaded guys, could either of you please explain how to use that gadget? I'm flummoxed by it. Maybe I missed something along the way. ~Paul

    Hosscooper -- If you are in luck, Chris will respond to your query as to what rod to use and whether you need to use a tenago/micro rod. All that I can contribute is that the relative stiffness of...

    I should probably add that the goldfish poaching was strictly Catch & Release. I was not a mean little boy, just one who lacked any better place to fish.

    I've started doing some micro fishing, catching Shiners from a little crick. At least I think they are shiners. The little fellows are moderately skittish, and thus I can't use a fish-at-my-feet size...

    I like the way your mind works, Brant. If the handle is too flexible, maybe it could be stiffened (& lengthened?) with three handle-long dowels bound with duct tape. Might be worth a try. ~pfa

    Can you tell us more about the leaders, the popular weight and taper, for instance? And more? I, for instance, was not aware that you were in the business of selling tenkara lines/leaders.
