    Stillwaters: Fishing a team of dry flies?

    When fishing more than one dry flies on Stillwaters, if you want to enhance their visibility by using a larger dry as a "sighter", do you put the larger dry on the point, or as the top dropper? Thanks. Cheers, Bryan

    Angling Trust Loch Style Team Championship 2019?

    Rob, Thanks. Yes, I've read your write-up of the 2019, and enjoyed it also. Loved the commentators in the 2018 video referring to you as fishing like a "finely machined Swiss watch". Cheers, Bryan

    Angling Trust Loch Style Team Championship 2019?

    I watched the YouTube video of the Angling Trust Loch Style Team Championship 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was hoping to find a similar video of the 2019 championship, but have not been successful. Anyone know if there is a on-line video available for the Angling Trust Loch Style Team...

    Genetic Cape

    Rob, This shop near West Yellowstone, MT offers a good selection of grades and colors of Whiting. https://jimsflyco.com/Default.aspx They must have a strong connection to Whiting Farms, as they often have a supply when others don't, and a good selection of grades and colors when others don't...

    Do you "dip" your dry flies in liquid fly floatant after tying them?

    Yes, like you, I've done it sometime in the past but didn't do it often, and honestly don't know if it really worked better than applying floatant at the water. Yet, thought I'd ask around, perhaps it is worth revisiting if others do it and find it works well. Cheers, Bryan

    Do you "dip" your dry flies in liquid fly floatant after tying them?

    Recently I watched a YouTube video from 2017 of Paul Davison tying the Midas fly. As the final step at the fly tying bench he said he always dips his flies in a silicon based liquid fly floatant then puts them on a plate to dry before putting them in his fly boxes. Do you typically "dip" your...

    Understanding Buzzers

    Most fly fishers in North America who are using indicators to suspend flies deep (and Brian Chan says that the most productive zone to fish chironomid pupae usually is 12" to 18" off the bottom) use quick-release foam or plastic bobbers. Thus, they don't have the need for yarn indicators that...

    My 1st Drogue

    I posted this awhile ago in a different thread, but here's an interesting article in a back issue of Trout Fisherman written by Wychwood design manager Paul Richardson in which he describes moving the G-Clamps, rather than adjusting the length of the drogue ropes, to change the angle of the...

    Bung fishing?

    A clarification: In British Columbia, you are limited to one fly in Stillwaters, but it can be weighted. In fact, most of the Indicator fishing gurus there (Phil Rowley, Brian Chan, etc.) normally use a weighted nymph. And, they frequently also add a micro-swivel some distance above the...

    Bung fishing?

    I understand your point and am certainly aware of the apparent double standard. Yes, "dry/dropper" setups rely on an indicator/bobber (dry fly) to suspend a nymph and to detect takes of the nymph. And, also, of course, to offer the fish an option of a dry fly on the surface. Yet, to me, there...

    Bung fishing?

    Must say, I was disappointed, but not surprised, to read Rob’s post above saying that Bung (bobber) fishing is important to success in competition. Wish it weren’t so, as I don’t think it takes much skill (only patience) to catch fish on flies under a Bung. Coincidentally, last week I saw a...

    My 1st Drogue

    Spent yesterday afternoon With the drogue deployed testing different adjustments to start getting a feel for how the affect the drift in my boat. I was alone so I know the adjustments will differ with another in the boat. Makes me a bit uneasy having the drogue deploy so deep so until I log...

    My 1st Drogue

    Thanks to for your insights. I had boats since childhood so a solid understanding and experience with boats, albeit this is a new boat after a 20 year hiatus. I have the Minn-Kota and Weston drogues which I used occasionally with my Waterstrder kickraft, but have not yet tried either with my...
