Re: Smurf Sakasa Kebari

Bill yesterday was a Tenkara day.. the whitefish were doing their thing with abandon. Tight lining a tiny glow yarn egg pattern resulted in many hookups...A few redbands to 14" were fooled as well.

Re: Is anyone fishing winged wets for "trout spey" style fishing?

I'm on the same quest. I have been using single hand spey casts while swinging soft hackles for some time. I've used my 10'6" Cortland Competition 3wt nymphing rod. I have found overlining this rod works well for me and have put the Rio Single Hand Spey line in 5wt on this rod. I can easily make sna...

Re: Bunkhouse Bombers

Bill had the ticket.. my day was a little less exciting... but my eats were on soft hackles at least. We don't get on the water together often enough.

Well ,,they say the trout only feed on top about 10% of the time...so it stands to reason that things below or just below the surface are going to get a lot of attention...I'm often not sure how deep my soft hackles are when they are taken, but usually nearer the surface than the bottom for sure. So...
