    I guess, but it would’ve had to turn under the leader, which of course was tight to the rod. I was also swinging quite close to the bottom in fairly shallow water...using a 5ips leader and a cone...
  2. Help me understand the physics of an interesting hookup incident

    Friday, I was out doing some trout spey and was fishing from the river left bank, swinging my fly from the center of the stream back toward the bank. I ended up snagging a fish, which in and of...

    Took a drive out to Nimbus on Sunday morning to take a walk on the parkway...fair number of fish in the ladder, some that looked pretty fresh actually, and plenty of people were of course flossing...

    Cool, between the increased riff-raff lately at the Yuba and Feather, the typical BS at the American, and now this, our local options for peace and quiet are really seeming to dwindle.

    I am still looking for a trade on a full cage 8-9wt reel, but would also consider selling my reel for $200 locally or $200+shipping outside local area. Reel would include backing. I can leave the...

    The flow hotline will be no help. They only tell you if the river is open, not the actual flow.

    I wish I could justify that TCX but I just got an ACR 1255 last summer. Someone will be very happy with it.

    That is a fair perspective, for sure. I think if you have $700+ to spend on two rods you should be able to find very good options for both.

    I will admit that my Echo Shadow II is definitely not...

    My 2c...I would spend more on the 7 and less on the 4. You can get a Fenwick Aetos 4 for $125 that would be just fine for your purposes or an Echo shadow for double that. Then get a decent 7 like a...

    Just to reinforce how finicky the coast is, when I left Fortuna today the SF was closed for low flow, the VD had turned brown, and the main stem was perfect.

    If it stops raining after next week, then who knows, the SF could be closed for low flow by then...realistically it’s hard to plan these things more than a few days ahead. It’s nuking rain in Fortuna...

    The water clarity on the main stem isn’t great. 2-3’ max. I hooked a fish on the SF, didn’t land it, clarity there was 4-5’ and brownish green. The VD surprisingly looked green from the highway...

  14. WTT Lamson Guru II size 4 for similar 3.5

    Bought this Lamson Guru II HD size 4 reel new at Kienes about 12 months ago. It’s been fished about 4x. It’s a bit too big and I would like to trade it for a similar full cage reel in size 3.5....

    Orange and silver, as I would have expected. Still a few (very dark) salmon around in the river so no doubt an egg or dead drifted alevin would've been more productive, but also not as enjoyable.

    I have a 11’ 7wt switch and use both a size 3.5 and size 4 on it interchangeably. I prefer the 3.5 as I feel it balances a little better.

    @BS — your alevins finally got a little swim today on the Yuba. One of them had an encounter. :D

    Lots of peeps again today, most (but not all) seemed to be well behaved. I’m afraid the Yuba is...

    I think that people fish for them in Scotts Flat. I am sure there are also some in Englebright but the topography of that lake is not great for fly fishing to them.

    Updated list for sold items. A few more days for these then will keep them or cross post them. I’m looking for a Rio Big Nasty WF8F or 9F if someone wants to trade.

    I have the TFO finesse 1wt 6'9" and it would make a small bluegill feel like a monster. That said, with patience and reasonable skills, that rod has landed trout in the 15-17" size class.

    Hi,
    Yes, the line is camolux (eg, clear camo in color). I'm not sure if it is InTouch -- can't remember and don't have the box. It is still available for purchase.
