Great thread, guys. I know I'm coming to the party a bit late, but for what it's worth, here's my .02. First of all, though I am not against people driving sleds, I have to admit, I'm not exactly...

Hey, thanks for the warning. I have one question: Were the downed trees sawed off at the base, or broken? Just curious, as we've had high winds the last few days, and on an optimistic note, I was...

I'm not sure where you live, but I'm sure your nearest fly shop would be happy to help you "cut and paste" your lines, even if you didn't buy them there. I can't speak for them, but I've found...

Okay, here's what I would do for your single-handed situation, and I put it that way 'cause this shouldn't be taken as advice, just what I would do if I was in your place. If you don't want to cut...

Anybody Got A Skagit/Sauk Report?

Just thought I would check in and see if anybody's been brave enough to face the crowds on our last open waters. Are the crowds as bad as I would expect? Any fish around? If you don't want to post,...

For what it's worth, one of the things I really love about the XP is how "lively" it feels when actually fishing it. This quality is difficult to quantify, but I've found that many of the great...

Capping The "Season" On The Sky
