  1. I gotta go with cutthroats baby!!
  2. Congrats & Thanks For Your Posts!!
  3. Ya, that's what I'm talking about!! Hard to say which is more fun, flyfishing or flytying!!!
  4. My experience of 30+ years ago is similar to Crotalus'; Used mine duckhunting and the thing didn't really take off until I was in my pickup on the way home. Then it got hotter than hell!! My advise, buy a good pair of gloves!!
  5. Sorry to hear that you are going to be "down" for awhile. Hope everything goes smoothly and that you'll be back soon. We can't get along without you for long!!
  6. Well,I learned something today already and it isn't even 0800!!
  7. Nope, no dry fly action here. Most fish are taken either with wooly buggers or foam beetles and in the spring with chironomids under indicators.
  8. The USFWS requests that you report any tagged fish. These are a "Pilot Peak" strain Lahontan Cutthroats which were the origin strain of cutthroats in Pyramid Lake before "progress" wiped them out in the early part of the 20th century. The US Fish & Wildlife Service has been stocking them back in the lake for the past 5 or 6 years. Most of the cutthroats currently in the lake are other strains of Lahontan Cutthroats. At any rate, reporting information on tagged fish helps the Service monitor the success of their efforts. The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, which owns the Reservation that Pyramid Lake also tags fish that they stock as well as "prize" fish for various fishing derbies. Long answer to a simple question...
  9. Holy Cow!! That is really nice!! I'll bet your siste loves it!!
  10. I've been having pretty good results with a simple white & chartreuse foam beetle on Pyramid Lake Lahontan Cutthroats this fall.
  11. Thanks for your efforts!! Very well done!!

  14. Thanks Rockworm!! I'm always looking for a new wax to try!!!!
  15. This is why I always recommend to my kids that they maximize their 401K contribution!! Retirement provides that opportunity to perfect your craft!! Hang in there!!!
  16. Welcome aboard!! Southern Illinois is a great place for an outdoorsman to live!! Had plans to move there after retiring, but then the economy/housing market took the "big dump" and now I'm laying low.
  17. Now that is a great photo!!!
  18. Good Luck Blane!! Keep us posted and let us know if you need a cake with a file in it!!!
  19. That is one deadly looking fly!!
  20. Mustad for me, though I always check out the bargain bins at Cabela's & Sportsmans Warehouse for good deals. Us Old Pensioners got to watch our money!!
  21. Mine was waiting for me when I got home from a 5 day fishing trip to Central Idaho. What a great issue !! By far, the best buy of any fly tying publications out there!!
