    I use super glue a whole lot more, as my vids attest. A lot of my bugs have a coating of glue in unusual places. I routinely wrap hackle into wet glue, for example.

    If you are hoping to fish stonefly nymphs or streamers (aka for run-up fish), you are seriously undergunned. A 9-10' 6-7 is much better.

    In my opinion, the two most common mistakes people make...

    Inline or to the eye of the first fly works out to fishing about the same way. Use this method if you want to fish the flies at the same level in the water column. Tie your larger/heavier fly on...

    Under a foot of viz in Gardiner and forecast to stay above 10,000cfs for several more days, which most clients can't handle accuracy-wise. From a guiding perspective, this hatch is going to be a bust

    Those won't work at all on the Yellowstone. You should send my shop 6dz each in sizes 12-16 for proper disposal. They also won't work at all on the Firehole right now if you tie them with a...

    90% of the smallmouth I've caught in the past 3-4 years have come on #1/0-2 gray/white Murdich Minnows and #2-4 copper over gold Kreelexes.

    I thought I dreamed a shake, but it turns out it wasn't a dream. No damage. "The Big One" has to wait for another day (and will certainly happen).

    I'd actually be worried about that knot catching in the guides on the way out. I'd cut it off and go with a needle knot, same as I'd use on a line without a rear loop.

    The beaver populations are rebounding because of the increase in willow growth along streams. The elk used to hang out in the wet valleys and browse the willows down to nothing. They are easier prey...

    The trophic cascades that are happening in Yellowstone are extremely obvious to those of us who live here. When I made my second fishing visit to Yellowstone in 1999, it was hard to find willows...

    That looks like an EP Streamer or Sparkle Brush. Either that or some similar synthetic blend spun in a wire-core dubbing loop and wrapped forward. It MIGHT be CCT Body Fur, but I doubt it.

    I always tie X-Caddis with a spikier dubbing and on a shorter shank hook than is usual. That's why I tie all our X-Caddis, since the ones we can buy all have tight-dubbed bodies on standard dry fly...

    Get em while you can. Hareline and Wapsi appear to have removed them from their wholesale catalogs for 2014, so they might get tough to find soon, though Nature's Spirit is still listing them.
