pmflyfisher I can see why it is a good selling steelhead fly fishing book. Best one I have seen in the 23 years I have been collecting GLs books it has steelhead fly fishing history, opportunities, techniques, fisheries by GL region, etc..

There are lots of people that like the book.

I will see the author tomorrow here in Chicago.

pmflyfisher Ok, I know where it is. Been in there in the 80s. No time for that stuff now, I am too tired at the end of the long cold steelheading day. Thats what age does to you.

Lipripper Edies Log Bar. The beating heart of that booming little metropolous. It's right downtown there by the McAmocodonalds.

pmflyfisher Edies whats that ?

The last few years I have been going by myself, I fish from dawn to dusk, don't get back to the motel until 7 PM, am exhausted from all day on the river, grab something at the market, or other fast food, go to room eat, and hit the bed by 9-9:30 PM, get up a 4:30 Am to 5 :00 AM and do it all over again. Maybe I tie a few flies and plot tomorrows strategy in the 1-2 hours I have while eating.

The days of going out for a big dinner and drinks after each hard day of steelhead fishing are over for me.

We use to go Government Lake Inn, Starr Lake Inn, M-37 Club for dinner, etc...

pmflyfisher I think you also need an enclosed see thru canopy on DBs during michigan winter floats and an open bar.

Lipripper WANTED: Propane heaters for drift boat use. Prefer large capacity with enormous heads to produce tropical conditions in confined area during cold winter months.:hehe: The funny thing is, I have been shopping around a little for heaters. Mostly for the short haired hound though. He froze his A$$ off last week. He had to stay home yesterday cause it was too cold. Man....he was cold last night.....towards me. Little brat.

No shorts last summer. I have never lived in my waders day in and out for five straight days until then though. I had every almost every piece of warm clothes I brought on me. It was worth it to see the look on those Montana boy's faces when the Michigan boys pulled out full sinking lines and 6" long sculpins and started wackin fish left and right. Gotta love high dirty water.

removed_by_request heater in a db?? never!!! thats why God invented oars.
01-05-2003 06:18 PM
pmflyfisher I know his DB does not have a heater in it, his feet were frozen after floating the PM M-37 - Gleasons this week.

He sounds hard core to me, my type of GL steelheader.

removed_by_request Hal,

You gotta hand it to LR 12" snow in June. No one is prepared for that.

I see him having no problem dealing with the muck banks in NW Ind. he is a bad dude!!!! If he fished in his shorts then even I am in awe.

pmflyfisher LR

That would not of effected me at all. Your dealing with a hard core cold weather experienced guy here. I ALWAYS pack some cold weather clothes.

Cold weather also keeps the Bubbas and the non serious FF off our rivers, no sense in the Bubbas trying to drink slushy beer. They can do that up at Government Lake Inn, play pool, and watch the monster truck pulls in warmth

Lipripper :hehe: You guys crack me up. I'm glad you all wern't on the Smith with me last summer. Woke up the first morning to 12" of fresh snow and the middle of June. 5 days of camping/floating/fishing in Montana with summer clothes in that weather. How that for soft MJYP?
