Fly fishing - Page 4
Awesome! My went to grad school in the bay area. when i'd visit we'd always go up to San Francisco, but for longer trips we'd head north for some fishing - stayed @ Clearwater(?) House once and IIRC fished the McCloud, Pit, Fall & Hat Creek over a couple of days (maybe it was 2 trips?) - N. California has some great fishing!
Yes, it is (supposed to be), although 20 years later I can't remember doing it It is the closet water to the lodge - maybe that's what I'm thinking of...
Some flies. Almost too pretty to fish.
Spent last weekend at the Upper Sac. Once again my wife outfishes me.
Taking my 8-year-old nephew to the Sierras this weekend for his first flyfishing and first real camping trip. Picked up a sweet '70s era fiberglass rod for him.
I've tried a few fiberglass rods. None really worked well for me. These days, I pretty much only fish either bamboo or Tenkara.
Should pick up a tenkara rod, but I have a few more traditional rods to go through first. Around here it's a lot of indicator nymphing or dry dropper so not sure how that soft tip handles that. Like to try though.
Your blogs are pretty extensive. Can't believe you ordered 10 bamboo rods from all that many makers. Hell of a way to get your feet wet. I will have some bamboo questions as I want to get a smaller rod for my wife. 7 - 8' 3 - 4wt.
Joan Wulff, the First Lady of Fly Fishing, wants to become a member of the Angling Club of New York, the most prestigious club in the US. She is certainly qualified having been a National Casting Champion from 1943-1960 in distance casting against an all-male competition; starting the Wulff School of Fly Fishing; writing three books on fly fishing, the most known being Fly Casting Techniques; and being inducted into the International Game Fish Association Hall of Fame in 2007.
However, she ain't a he.
