    Madison boats correct as usual. Unless you are very fond of the person you are sleeping with, a 3 or 4 person tent is the best way to go. Of course there's the weight problem but comfort versus...

    Yep. I agree with Smctrout and Stanaclaus. I've always said the reason I tie flies is not to save money but to make flies that look like you want them to. I've tied more flies than me and my friends...

    Strongly agree with Jayr's advice. There are already an overabundance of tubers in the places where that device might work. Try a wading staff and just go slowly and be careful. Remember that it's...

    We've had some good luck at Lee's Ferry when dad lived in Flagstaff. Check out Marble Creek Outfitters in Page Utah I think. "The Ferry" usually fishes well year round since its a very long tailwater.
