Re: cocadrie by way of chalmette? what?

Yeah, you right! :cool: And as for da pie, I could use a slice of pecan (don't call it "pee-kan"!) from the Camillia Grill.

Re: Ever been in a slump?

We've all been there, Ursus. At least for me, slumps always ended on their own. I remember the fall steelhead season a couple of years ago, I lost the first nine I hooked. All of them hit hard, ran fast enough to spin the reel, and were just gone. The tenth one stayed hooked and the jinx was over. I...

Re: Lake Trout on the Fly.

We get them pretty regularly in the Niagara River in late autumn/early winter, on white or chartreuse Zonkers or Clousers. I've caught a few (very few) in Adirondack ponds, right after ice-out. I was actually after landlocks, using smelt-imitating streamers. Hope this helps - good luck WT. :cool:

Re: Public land and private aholes

The first thing is to be sure you're on solid legal ground. This will probably cost you some $$ for a lawyer to look into it. Some jurisdictions say you're OK to walk the streambed, others you may float a boat through but not anchor or get out of the boat. Your mass mailing idea might carry more wei...

Re: Funny Fly Shop Experiences

I was wasting a lunch hour in a shop once, in the tying materials section. An attractive young woman asked me if I worked there, and I told her no and pointed out someone who did. She asked the guy some questions about feathers, and he wanted to know what she was going to be tying with them. She rep...

Re: Rant: Foam Flies

I'm not quite the anti-foamist you are, but I see your point. Just a guess, but foam bugs often are faster and cheaper to tie, which could explain their popularity with the fly sellers.
