You are correct

I confess the plagiarism charge is accurate. However I believe that most of us, as fly fishers, have one thing in common. That is, we could believe it because we can SEE OURSELVES actually doing...

I think we're on to something with the spittle being analyzed. Properly packaged and marketed as an attractant, it could go for $5.00 for a Visine container.

Worse than I imagined

Because of the drought I have not been into the park since mid-July. When I went Staurday I was stunned by what I saw. In many areas no water at all. Not even a puddle. These were the small creeks in...

Thanks!

I was afraid the drought would impact the steams this way. Oh well.

Don't worry about the troopers or Sheriff generating revenue from me. I live on the Dragon in Creekside. With all the crazy...

Hey Byron (and Paula)

What about a pick-in at the shop to bring the pickers/fishers together since we can't (won't) fish the Park? Maybe a bit of assistance from TU or Townsend and a few burgers, etc. Could even be a...

Thumbs up Byron's Les Paul

Hey Byron, I've noticed that many fly Fishermen also either have or do play guitar. I wonder if there is a large percent or what. Anyhow, I play a Taylor 414 and go strictly acoustic. In 6 years of...

Calling all Biologists (and real experts) (lol)
