:smile: OK, OK, sorry to get you all ruffled. I did fish the Caney perhaps 50 times up until about 2000, when I decided that it seemed more like fishing at a trout farm and with no privacy. If...

If this or that... If the Caney had natural reproduction, it would be managed quite differently. I think it would be wonderful if they would manage the flows in such a way as to let reproduction...

Yes, of course that's true. So maybe it would be fairest to divide up the trout stamp money by percentage of those want to eat trout vs those who want their sterile stockers to die of old age. I...

I'll just remind everyone that the trout in the Caney Fork are all stockers. They can't reproduce there, unlike the hordes of big smallmouth that the dam mostly eliminated. They are only there...

Man you are dead on. The only bad animal attack I've ever experienced was once when I was scooting on my butt down a steep hill to a stream in NC. Felt a sting on my hand, heard some buzzing, and...

I think tripping over a rock or having a heart attack are probably more dangerous than bears and snakes.

Is it just me, or are the bears near Elkmont the most troublesome? Seems like a lot of the problem bears have been from that area in the last decade.

I love that magazine. Have every issue since #1. I've even bookmarked and tagged all my favorite articles (mostly places I want to go before I die).

Great info there, Lumber Jack. 18 miles of ankle breakers. Whew! I'm surprised you had time to fish. And yeah, hadn't even thought about the illegal camping part. Meaning that if I try this...

Brian, I confess. I would love to have that fly shop. I've looked at it and one other in Pennsylvania last year. This shop seems to be better than average. Meaning it still doesn't seem to make...

What Troutslayer said. I use Google Maps and flip between the Terrain and Satellite modes a lot. Google Earth is another fun way.

There at the Ranger's station I've seen dozens of what were probably 2-lb redhorse. I don't think those would be in there if there wasn't a good food base for smallies. If I still lived within 10...

Hi Byron! Was the author skeptical that anyone could catch smallies when the water is 42 or colder, or was he just saying that they slow down a lot? I would have to strongly disagree (ha, imagine...

I'm glad the fish was released also. Although it's hard to believe that a fish that big, fat, and old would live very long after being caught...

Everything everyone said above is correct. Since you are new, I would think you want to get the most bang for your buck. I think you could do that with black, brown, olive, and white bead-head...

There's one for sale not too far from me in Bozeman. I think it's the oldest one in Bozeman (Montana). I'll dig up more info if someone actually wants it.
