Re: What rods should I take?

Definitely bring the second rod. If for no other reason than to have a backup if your primary rod gets broken. Remember - Murphy was an optimist....

Re: Wasting Time on the River

Time spent on a river cannot be wasted, ever. And anybody who thinks his time is so damn valuable he can't be bothered to tie a knot has taken up the wrong sport.

She'd stay out of the water unless a fish was on, and then she would just wade in a lit...

Re: Leaders

Tie my own, the Geo Harvey formula works well for dry fly fishing. Maxima for the butt section, any quality brand of softer mono for the transition sections and tippet. Never had much trouble with weeds on the knots.For steelheading, I use a 60% butt section, 20% transition, 20% tippet for weighted ...

Re: 5 flies - All Situations

Harrop Hairwing Dun - in the right size and color, the only mayfly adult pattern I use, from lakes to spring creeks to pocketwater. The tail can be trimmed to make a usable caddis dry.Griffith Gnat - I also like these when they're barely floating as midge emergers. I've trimmed the bottom and made a...
