If you want a good laugh, anything by Patrick McManus will do. It's not necessarily fly fishing, although some of his books do have humorous fly fishing stories in them, but if you love the outdoors...

Champ, I think you will find that the difference between the basic fins that come with many float tubes and force fins is like night & day. Force fins seem effortless compared to the stiff generic...

I'd definitely drop down to a 5X leader and maybe use 6X tippet if they still aren't hitting your flies tied on 5X.

Urban Lakes

I used to take my four boys and their friends to El Dorado Pond in Scottsdale a lot, and we always caught fish. Last spring/summer, that lake got blown out with muddy water after some hard rains,...

You should be fine with the 5WT, especially if you're floating since you won't have to cast very far. The 6WT comes in handy in the lower canyon float in the afternoons when the wind can get pretty...

Bingo! I think the end goal of the group of so-called environmentalists targeting the ferry is to see the chub and other warm water species thriving and the trout gone. They'd like to have the dam...

If the Browns have been there for 94 years, they've been eating the little humpies for 94 years, and both are still there, along with the rainbows. Every fish is native to somewhere. I like to...

I keep all the loops pinched between my thumb and index finger, with the index finger crooked so I can feel all the loops and keep them from tangling with one another. It works best on big water...
