Nymphing with a Double Fly Rig
Nov 13, 2018 - 8:42 PM - by Bucksnort
I love nymphing pocket water with a strike indicator using the short line, high sticking method. For many years, I used only one nymph but one day, I decided to use two nymphs and have used two for about twenty years or more. Old habits are hard to break.

I have caught a lot of fish using the high sticking method with one fly and I've caught a lot of fish using the high sticking method with two flies but I cannot say I have caught more fish using two flies. Yeah, I know,... [Read More]

Flyfishermen Should Read
Oct 25, 2018 - 9:33 PM - by aztightlines
The title is a quote from one of the authors in maybe the best anthology of fly fishing stories out there: "Silent Seasons," by Russell Chatham. I bought it for $6, kind of a lot for a paperback at my local Friends of the Library sale.

Perhaps I should not go on talking too much about the book before I consume it in its entirety...but it has been such a pleasure, I don't want it to end, somehow.

The strong points of the collection, aside from the essays,... [Read More]

Does anyone have a report on JD? Game and Fish in Flagstaff told me there was a fish kill earlier this past summer.
