Re: Leftover Grouse

I don't think the legs are too big, but I would say they are at the limit. But as is, everything looks balanced in my opinion.

I'd fish them without any concerns.

Re: "Duncan" Spider

I like it. The dressed body I think is an excellent idea.

Keep fishing it. Who knows, maybe the fish were off a little that day. Have you tried different colors?

Re: My First Flymph - One Messy BWO...

I think you did really well with those flies. I have found out with flymphs that at times, the messier the fly, the better.

I'm still experimenting with fur, & like you, I found less hair looks better in the end.

Well done.

Re: Golden Plover Breast Feathers

Those were two good videos, and the second one has left me with a question. When he goes around the body with the black silk, he goes the way he was tying the orange silk, and his explanation made sense to me. But why then when we tie a nymph with wire over a, let say a peacock herl body, why do we ...

Re: Adam—-wet version

see nothing wrong with that fly, so tie them how you like because you're the one fishing them.

The colors are excellent.

I'd tie it on my tippet any time. It's not bad at all.

Re: Three days on the White River

It is the Hofer strain of Rainbows that were brought back to Colorado from Germany. The Germans received the Rainbows at the turn of the century from wild fish from the Gunnison River. The German fish have been exposed to Whirling disease all those many years and built up an immunity. The first Hof...

Re: Three days on the White River

I'll try and explain my comment a little better & please keep in mind this is just my opinion. From what I understand is the whirling disease pretty much wiped out the rainbow population in the White River, like many rivers in Colorado. While the rainbows numbers were very low the whitefish pretty m...

Re: Three days on the White River

Are whitefish native to the river? My nephew who lives in Meeker & fishes the river as much as he can says they are native in this river. As I write this post, I'm actually back here in Meeker. I fished the same area as before, but I tried something a little different. I don't think they are consid...
