1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Don't think so.

    Anyone who has used a guide should appreciate this:

    Yeah I have the Source Tasmania, great DVD. Even better is one of there newer films, Hatch. WE have a big travelling fly film festival here called RISE film festival, and I met Nick Reygaert who made all of them at this years, very nice guy. He also used to film a lot of the trout bums stuff but his newer stuff is a lot better IMO. I can never get used to the manic filming sequences on trout bums. He has one coming out next year called predator which they showed a bit of at this years festival. Fishing for lots of big fish, stuff like Barramundi, Samson and the like, all stuff that bends a 12 weight to the corks!

    Lefty those Hank Patterson vids are fantastic. I seem to remember they were done for free to raise money for cancer or something.

    To be honest, I get a little tired of ff films as they're all pretty much the same thing - slow motion double hauling.

    This one is an exception:

    Yeah, AV. I feel a little badly for her. She's had to deal with no end of stupidity as the babe of the fly-fishing world.

    There's also this gal who seems mostly insane.

    Third pic - how shallow is that stream? Clay bottom? What are you casting to?

    Waterall shot is great.

    That's a stream that was ankle deep, with a few sections slightly deeper. Full of brown trout.

    It's in the middle of the desert; not a place that anyone would think would have fish (but I'm an optimist. and like to explore) It is a little ribbon of life through red rocks and sand.

    Bottom is sand. (Actually, there were a couple of sections of quicksand.)

    A few more pictures from that spot of my friend hiking in and fishing:

    Spring creek? "Ribbon of life" is a great descriptor.
