In college (Northern Mich U) in 1977, I had to take a PE course. I am not very athletic. So I signed up for flycasting class! It was fun and easy, and of course I aced the class. Unfortunately I only used my casting ability one time, when I went fishing with a cousin who had the equipment. Spent all afternoon and evening fishing and only caught one undersized trout, which was returned for a future battle. I never bought my own flycasting equipment and never went out again. Hmm, maybe....

Looking forward to a trip to Ontario this fall to Algonquin near Pembroke for some Brook trout.
Depending on when you come in the fall, you might want to try the salmon runs.

Just a fishing story. Just got off the Selway River after a few days of fishing. Some cutthroat but water high and cold.
OK the fish story , the Selway is a Native American river for Salmon. After I was done fishing and walking back to camp looking down river I saw a person crawling across the rocks the person was still far off but I up the pace of my walk.
As the person neared the river he half standing and half leaning against a rock cast out into the river. I went down to the river to talk to the man to see if he was OK. He was an 85 year old Native American who told me " that to draw of Salmon fishing is very strong in him and his family and he has fished this run for over 70 years and if he has to crawl to fish then he will crawl" I bid him a good day and hope I will do the same at his age.

Just got back from three weeks camping on the Upper McCloud River in N.Cal. Free stone bottom , cataracts and holes, 3 waterfalls with big, deep pools - hard wading but beautiful. Some of the prettiest water anywhere.

All of the hardware and bait spin casters were grumbling because F&G wasn't planting any more. I was ecstatic! Had a 22 fish day and many other days in double digits. Prettiest fish I landed (and released) was a 13 inch Red Band (native variant of a rainbow). Also nice Brookies, Rainbows and some Browns. Most of the fish were in the 7 to 12 inch range, but fun. For you nymphers the big fish are in the Lower McCloud, below the reservoir.

If you are going to fish the Upper McCloud you have to stop in Dunsmuir at Ted Fay's Fly Shop and buy some #14 and #12 Skinny Yellow Humppies. Tell Bob that Tom said "Hi!"

Kept enough for dinner a few of the days. We were in a US Forest Service Camp ground so our dinner toast was "$7.50 a night and a free Trout dinner."

Can it get any Better?

Sounds wonderful Tom! I'm a dry fly person too. People keep telling me to go to the dark side and try nymphing (again) that it is more productive but I love to see the take even if they miss. I sometimes fish a dropper, that's as close to sub water fishing as I go except when my dry fly isn't dry anymore.

We really need to get out for a fishing trip but life seems to be in the way of that right now.

Lizbeth,

Know what you mean about the dark side. To me it isn't the fish, its the fishing... I have fished a drop a couple of times - out of desperation - on the Truckee between town and the airport. Actually landed a 13 incher, the only nymph catch for me ever.

If you are in the Shasta area in Sept or Oct I will be Camp Host at Cattle Camp camp ground - USFS. It is 10 miles east of McCloud on Hwy 89. Look me up and I'll introduce you to the Upper McCloud.

Flyfishing part1

This has been a very good summer for flyfishing my favorite area to camp and fish, the western side (Idaho) of the Bitteroot mountains. I will try to write about 3 of the best, and encourage others to visit these areas. The first place I will mention is the North Fork of the Clearwater river/ Kelly Creek area. This is reached from the south Idaho RT 12 using ID 11 thur Weippe and Pierce Idaho with pavement all the way to the river but driving up river will be on gravel. You can also enter from the south from Orofino using the Crangemont road also paved all the way to the river. From the North on Intersate 90 at Superior Montana ask for directions over the mountain not paved all the way to the river (their was a bridge being worked on this section of road so call before you use this way in ) . The towns mention are the last services except water you will see until you leave. This will take you into the Clearwater National Forrest Forest Service Clearwater National Forest in Orofino, Idaho. this will provide with info about the area. On the river you will find many lightily use very nice camp grounds with water and nice bathrooms and some areas that are great if you are self contained. The fishing is for Cutthroat and has been very good (Dry fly) all summer once the water levels went down witch was late due to rains in the spring. We start out with large flies and every new month go down a hook size until the October Caddis hatch. I will be returning to this area for the October Caddis hatch which is so much fun. Small RVERs fit very well in the campgrounds. http://www.fs.fed.us/r1/clearwater/V...f_corridor.pdf
The fish will be founds in all age classes (this is a wild trout river) with large fish being 18 . Tightlines and great vistas.

A couple of weeks ago I came across an 8'-6'' bamboo rod at a flea market. The seller said that it was from about 1940. I disagreed and stated that it was closer to 1970 but purchased it anyways. After getting it home I found a made in Japan printing on the handle and decided that they wouldn't be trading with N America at that time and maybe my original time line was closer to the fact. Then I found that the tip was broken and needed some repair. I have dismantled the rod and am re-wrapping it. I still think that it will make a nice 5-6 weight rod. The local tackle shop wanted $9.00 per eyelet so here's my homemade jig.

James, we have a few old bamboo rods that need to be repaired. We just haven't gotten to it yet, I wonder if we will. We've had them for many years and they are still sitting in the tubes.

Being a brand new member I was surfing around the site and was delighted to find a fly fishing group. I have been an avid (my wife says addicted) fly fisher for 55 years. I am a forester by training and because of my job I've had the opportunity to fish around.

In Nova Scotia we fish primarily Atlantic salmon, brook trout and sea run rainbow and browns. One of my fav. spots is reindeer lake in northern Sask. where some very big pike make home.

I'm really starting to love this site and all because my wife and I bought an old Trillium....who would have guessed
