Anyone ever use the Sierra Zip Stove? That's what I've been using for years. It's a little heavier than the typical backpacking stoves, but I like not buying and carrying fuel. It boils water very...

I don't remember seeing it mentioned, although it would be easy to miss in the six pages of this thread. Fishless Days, Angling Nights by Sparse Grey Hackle is a great older fly fishing book. Parts...

Vern,
Sounds like you had similar luck to me, but at least you got a fish to rise to a dry. Wasn't the snow pretty on Sunday though? Despite the prettiness, I hope that's our last bout with it for...

Anytime I can get to the mountains is a good time, whether or not I catch any fish. It does indeed feel like home.

I really live for dry fly season. As I said, nymphing isn't my thing (read,...

Warm Up (A really long, sad, mostly pointless fishing report)

Ok, I'm going to call my first trip of the year a warm up trip. I managed to bungle almost every aspect from forgetting my coffee cup and thermos to falling down to not catching anything.

You're not alone. I was born a little closer to the Smokies than you, north Alabama. I grew up on the shores of Lake Guntersville. My father has always been an avid tournament bass...

ttas67,
I own ETF, and it's a very good book. I basically learned to tie from it. It is sufficient for almost any flie you will need, BUT you will later find yourself wishing you had bought the...

I've heard you could crumble up walnut bark, toss it in a stream, and the chemical in the bark would temporarily stun the fish which would then float to the top for awhile. I guess if I was without...

I thought Lynn Camp and Thunderhead came together to form Tremont there at the end of the gravel road? I may be wrong on that. To my shame, I've never fished Thunderhead or Lynn Camp. I've fished...
