  1. What if the stars are holes in the container lid meant to allow air in for us?
  2. I am not much of a hiker outside of day trips to high mountain lakes (~12 miles round trip). Will drive for some time but also be dropped off; left behind so to speak (by choice haha!) for some time as well. Am also planning a few short hikes and pictures of my position from within the cell phone GPS app. I'll have been there and done that. I like fuzzy details and have kept this trip that way. I have no plan or idea what I will do for many days. A lost soul wondering barren landscapes in search of, nothing. I have a vehicle, my feet, maps, and more moving (and not) fishable water than I can possibly fish in the time I have. The only thing that's certain at this point is where I'll rest my skull at night, assuming I don't get eaten by something I will admit, I have a planned a few things in advance, like tying a ton of flies for any possible fish!

    Wow. That's massive, and a LOT of wasps. Imagine before humans colonized the planet these might have existed much, much larger!
  4. Other than constantly working to improve myself, and possibly in an effort to...I've been working on a pilgrimage and it's almost time to go. Sought one of the loneliest roads in the world, just the wildlife, fish, and myself. Befitting for a fall trip with an attitude to match. Hopefully I'll come back new and improved, or at least improved and a little less edgy
  5. 1. Honestly any green bugger/nymph that is sized right should do. I have never found one pattern better than others, when the fish are on them they take anything close it seems. 2. I think you were spooking the minnnows. 3. Yes. I use a dropper. Emerger or nymph, which one depends on what's happening. Could be damsel, could be chironomid. 4. Do you have the money to spend? Will you (and family/pets if you have them) still eat after your purchasing this rod? If yes to both, then why not? If no, then not?
  6. Omg omg omg omg omg NEW MUSIC!!!!

  10. This one is $3.41 on Amazon. I believe it was recommended repeatedly on this forum which is how I found it. It works great for me. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016X0U6LS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. LoL Mike, that's how ones face looks when earing an onion raw!! I usually don't pass on videos of people getting hurt but that JUGS one feels like a reminder that not everyone can be an athlete, lol! So talent, this is creepy talent... https://vimeo.com/351011634
  12. Collection is almost complete. I've never tied up so many flies for a trip, and this isn't all of them!! I hit the vise as hard in July as I ever have in a short period of time. Usually I need a pattern or three, this time it was numerous patterns, tying flies I've never tied before, and sizes much larger than I'm accustomed to.
  13. Those look very cool! Thank you for sharing. I really like the look of the body in the first fly, it looks like snake skin.
  14. The winner for, "voice absolutely does not even come close to fitting the person" goes to this classic
  15. I cut them all, piece of cake. Snipped close to where the thread ended om the front hook. Out of a dozen or so I had to use the file on 2. I probably didn't need to file those but am paranoid. Here's the file Thank you all for the suggestions.
