  1. You are right regarding the arctic greyling in the U.S., many of the of the populations are remnants of introduction. However, their lower distribution limit is reported to be in the upper reaches of the Missouri river drainage around the Great Falls region of northern Montana.
  2. Radoslav, Sounds like a great trip. I have had the fortune of fishing the artic grayling here in the states, on a stream located in the Rockies which has the biggest grayling in the lower forty eight states. One thing I noticed fishing them in slow waters at close distance, is that there strike/take is very slow and deliberate. It is very easy to pull the hook away from them before they actually take the fly.

    For the money you can't go wrong with Ross. I have five very well used Ross reels which have not seen a lick of maintenance. All perform like the day I got them.

  5. Greetings, Just wanted to weigh in on the time question. Depending on the patern I can tie as many as six dozen an hour or as few as sixteen flies an hour. For my personal box I try to keep my patterns a simplistic as possible, most of those I can tie under three minutes.
  6. Greetings All, Going on an eight day pack trip in the high Sierra's next week. Wondering if any of you had any interesting still water paterns you would like to share. Thanks, Mike
  7. I think I have figured it out with your help. Thanks
  8. Greetings, I recently joined the site, and am thus far enjoying it. I was looking to add a personal photo, but received an error notice! Does anybody have a suggestion for how to go about this. Thanks, Mike
  9. Greetings, I just wanted to weigh in proverbial best vice question. True to much of this industry there is a continual evolution of products, and this has been includes vises. There are many types and brands each doing its best to reinvent the wheel, yet not all are equal and many I have found to be lacking. My sugestion when picking a vise is to consider the design, moreover look for the vise that has the least moving parts to fail and/or get in the way. There are two which I tie on regularly, the Dyna King Pro and the "Bull Dog" of vises the Regal. Both of these I have found to allow exceptional access to the hook, hook holding capabilities, and ease in inserting the hook. While the Regal is surely not at the top of the price list it is in my opinion the best vise out there for the above reasons and the fact that there are no adjustments to fool with.
  10. Here is a list of flys that I always carry with me during the summer months. While I can not attest to what will be happening in colorado on any specific river these should cover your basis. Most of these patterns are very simple to tie, just vary the color and size and you should be fine. X-Caddis #14-16 tan and olive Sparkle Dun #18-14 vary color according to hatch, most likely pmd, flavs, and maybe some drakes PT nymph #18-14 Z-wing caddis #18-14 Birds Nest #12-16 tan & olive
