Three days on the White River

We got home this afternoon from a wonderful trip in Meeker visiting family and fishing the river. The river where we fished is mostly populated by whitefish, and it seems they are pushing the trout out. In fact, there's so many whitefish I can see why Colorado has no bag limit on them. The whitefish...

Re: your honest opinion

I don't have my computer with me right now so I can't show photos of today's fishing trip here in Meeker CO. So when I get home I'll post the photos. Old Hat, I understand what you're saying about the biots, but one of the reasons I tied them on is because the fish in the White River love the Prince...

Re: your honest opinion

I'd fish it in a heartbeat. Proportions look good to me. Biot tails are interesting, I usually use pheasant tail fibers. It should catch a lot of air bubbles with that spiky body, and that's a good thing. Thanks guys. Any advice you can give is taken with many thanks. The biots just came to mind be...

your honest opinion

I threw this together last night, and I kind of like the looks of it, so I tied a few more for this long weekend. I don't know if it's an existing pattern or not, but being limited on materials, this is what I came up with. What I enjoyed about tying these is I finally was able to practice tying lar...

Have you looked thru the flies in Pete Hidy’s fly wallet? I think there are several brighter patterns to play around with.

light reflection

I have learned a long time ago that light penetrating through the water column reacts differently with certain flies. For example if it's a cloudy day, darker, bland colored nymphs on the bottom of your rig works best because the light hitting the bottom of the river isn't as bright as it is in the ...

Re: Alewife fishing

Good for you igniting a flame that's sure to keep burning. That's a strange looking fish, but at the same time the way the scales shine with those colors it's beautiful. What I saw in the video they look like they can put up a good fight.

Re: English Grouse & Woodcock Hackles

Those are excellent looking flies. I like the woodcock look, and I think it works well for most flies.

Re: This Kid

Nice casting form for such a young guy. I was waiting to see if he was going to hook the camera man.

It would have been so cool to see his face if he caught a fish.
