    JFC, dude. I gave you a website, a pic to emulate and a video to watch. And some pretty direct advice - don't hold trout like that if you intend to release them. Past that, you're on your own.

    But if you want some wisdom, whoever told you to lip an eight-inch trout for a selfie is a fucking moron. Stop listening to them.

    I got this email, thanks lefty. No denim rule will be enforced! I read that snakehead article and figured Morgan might be a local member - do you know him? I thought I had the EVP book but got it mixed up w/ the Austin Francis one (Land of Little Rivers)? Unfortunately Tuesdays & Thursdays find me slogging out to Hackensack for kids' hockey practice :plain:

    Wasn't sure if you were on the list. Sorry, we won't see you.

    Ed's book is great. Really an overview and history of the Catskills from the 1600's.

    Morgan's a cool kid. If your kids are ever looking for a fly-fishing mentor closer to their age, he'd be a great choice.

    Never been to YS. I believe roma has and may be more help. The place looks good and I doubt you can go wrong.

    Trying to book a last minute trip to Honduras, either Roatan or Utila, if anyone has any experience there.

    There are a bunch of nice lodges in SW MT, but I'm not sure I've heard of Healing Waters, which doesn't mean anything of course. The lodge looks pretty sweet - Twin Bridges is home to Winston rods, and you're right in the heart of some of (the?) the best fishing in the continental US. The salmon fly hatch on the Big Hole is an awesome event if you can hit it right (early-mid June generally). One of their guides is Bart Doig - would not be surprised if he is related to the writer (Ivan Doig). You are probably 70 miles or so from W. Yellowstone, so it is a quick (by MT standards) jaunt over to the park.
