  1. Great idea. I've friends with ebikes. They've been thru the gambit of owning bikes at various price points. They use them for long backroad day trips and all say be prepared to pay for higher end bike if you want reliability, performance and distance. I'm not familiar with brand names.
  2. There's a remote chance that he's just preparing you for the possibility that he may one day carry a rainbow banner. Fish or otherwise I wouldn't be to worried.
  3. Barge cement (waterproof flexible contact cement). For any glue to hold well both surfaces have to be totally clean of dirt, grit and debris.
  4. How about this approach: In the regs. state - No fishing for said invasives except in designated lakes - A hefty fine for those caught angling for invasives in non-designated waters. No fishing for invasives equals no retention.
  5. Here's a tip if using felt soles. Apply a 5/8"wide layer of ShoeGoo to the toe area of the sole. Not to thick not to thin. Reapply as needed when it wears off. Since I started doing this I get an extra season out of a pair of soles. It's the toe area that always wears out for me. Soles must be clean and dry before applying! Peel away any loose Goo before cleaning and reapplication. Apply on new soles or boots for best results.
  6. My Simms Freestone boots have been great. My last boot was a pair of Simms G3's. The G3's have been resoled 3 times and are still in good shape. The Freestones are lighter and not cumbersome like the G3's. I suspect they won't last as long as the G3's.
  7. Blue wing olives are remarkable. I've been on late season hatches (rather light hatches mind you) when the afternoon air temp. tops out at about 3 C. Most duns over feeding fish never make it off the water before being picked off. Those that do might make it onto a cold rock only to sit there shivering if Mays shiver haha. Some do make flight.
  8. In my experience late fall is when you find fish spending more time in tailouts more so than other times of the year. I recall one stellar afternoon on the Livingstone during a hatch of mahogany duns. Many fish feeding in very shallow tailouts. Stealth was key.
  9. I see what you mean. Was there minimal current?
  10. Could be just how the image appears on my screen but I see 3 for sures (large fish) and 2 smaller maybes downstream of the 3. No visual clue as to 2 more somewhere. Good post. Got anymore similar photos?
  11. Began learning some new casting techniques last season. Was shown a roll cast mend that keeps a dry fly drifting drag free in conflicting currents much longer than say a reach cast followed by regular mending. Working on and making good progress at placing my offering in tight places such as narrow openings in log jams and tight spots, in and between large woody debis cover and under over hanging vegetation. Those seemingly frustrating and inacessible places westslopes hideout. In. The Arrow Cast comes to mind. Lots of fun stepping up the skill set.
