  2. Felt Soled Boots

    I have 2 sets of felt soled boots. I revolve them so each set gets 24 hrs drying time. The biggest concern is mud where the the disease flourishes, I hose and clean my equipment.

  5. Is anyone studying the invertebrate populations? We do trout counts but do we do trout food studies.
  6. Recommendations for a 4 weight rod

    The Loop Opti Stream is a great dry fly rod, I mostly use it on the Bow but for mountain streams and spring creeks, which is what the topic is about I do prefer a shorter one. I find a 6 or 7 foot Flyrod to be perfect. Picked up a 7' - 3wt Butterstick, havn't tried it onstream yet but it looks like a winner.
  7. Recommendations for a 4 weight rod

    I tend to fish either glass or bamboo for small streams. Think of it this way, manufacturers have been in a race to produce Graphite rods that have only one purpose, speed, using not only fast stiff rods but many lines tare actually heavier than standard rating (example: 5wit lines that are actually closer to 6). Distance, the race for "newer and better" has been for fast rods that will overreach. These do some undesirable things. They don't load at short distances, are less accurate plus their inherent stiffness are much tougher on both tippets and fighting fish. Softer rods with a slower stroke will lay out a dry fly lightly without slapping water and give you much more accuracy and save your finer tippet's on large fish in my experience.
  8. Passing of Norm Norlander

    I've been talking with Tim over the last couple of months, he is taking over from Norm. His wonderful products will go on.
  9. Soft hackling

    Love tying and fishing soft hackles, grew up swinging and fishing em. They can be deadly during a Caddis pre-emergance along with Mayfly hatches and I will often use a variety of them when nothing else is moving on the water. You can either swing them down and across or fish them up like a dry fly, let them drift by and then run them into a swing. Keep a "bow" in your fly line on the downstream swing to act a shock absorber as takes on the swing can be quite hard.
