99% credit card for me, except in the unusual case where I have to use cash (i.e., paying a fishing guide, purchasing a vehicle, buying a guitar, etc.). I always pay the entire balance each month,...

two cents

When I first started throwing meat I would simply take the butt section off of my old leaders (3-4 feet) and use that as my leader. I still think that's a practical and effective method. Over the...

Fishing well

I was able to float the tailwater last week. Definitely fishing well. Caught a brookie, a few browns, and a bunch of rainbows. There was a good mix of wild fish, SNITs, and pellet fed pigs. I saw...

Toccoa DH Poachers

I took my 8 year old up to the DH Friday afternoon. 3 adults were holding up a couple of fish as I was driving up above the island, so I stopped and watched for a minute. I decided to drive on up to...

Done it.....once

Like you, a number of years ago I was on the same mission. I think I posted about my trip a few years ago. Don't do what I did - bring the right supplies! When I was on my mission, I seem to recall...

Rod Vault

I've been tempted by the rod vault for quite a while, but I've never been in a car or truck where you couldn't leave your rod fully rigged on the inside of the vehicle. Even when I had a Honda...

Dawg, that's a 7-9, 4 weight I built as part of the Oyster class. As I indicated previously, the Hardy is not my best reel in terms of performance, but for that particular rod, it's perfect.

have one

I have one - I use it exclusively when I fish my 4 weight bamboo. It's a beautiful reel - great for small stream fishing. Your description of it as jewelry is right on the money. Is it worth the...

Great story and great fish. I feel like i was reading Hunter S. Thompson, not knowing what part of your story was true and what wasn't - good stuff! What is that snowball looking piece of something...

I noticed that tube a couple of years ago. I hate being reminded that the only reason I'm catching fish is because a truck came and dumped them in the river for me.

Go Simms

I went through 3 pairs of less expensive waders in one year and decided to bite the bullet on the G3 waders about 10 years ago. I still have them. For me, it's well worth the money. Also, it's the...

yes

I've never floated the Toccoa with a Guide, but I've floated it numerous times with other folks and by myself, in various watercraft. The only downside to doing it yourself is if you run into a...

good stuff!

Looks pretty good. I grew up in Alaska and my dad smoked salmon all summer. He still sends me 5-10 pounds in ziplock bags every year. He smokes it in such a way that it comes out almost like...

If I recall, Bill told our group that you have to put aside the modern notions of the "weight" of your rod when it comes to bamboo. I believe he gave an example of a 6 weight bamboo being similar to...

no problem here

They're taking members of the public out to enjoy and use a public resource. Although I've been annoyed a few times when a guide boat drops anchor in a hole I'm fishing, I don't think there is...

One other thing

One other thing I really enjoyed was going out during a break with another student and casting an 8 weight boo with Bill. He is the best I've seen.

There was a point after wrapping the thread where you had to sand the varnish around the guides. It was late in the afternoon, and I simply wasn't patient with the process. It was a delicate...

I took the class in July of 2016. You'll have a blast! You have a few folks that perform each task quickly, and a few folks that are very slow. Depending upon your pace, there can actually be a...

extra reel

I think you could buy a 10 foot 3 weight, and not worry about getting a new reel (at least for a while). My fly line never touches the water when I high stick with my 10 footer. In fact, I feel...

Help please! Flow from dam to curtis

Haven't fished toccoa in a long time. How long does it take water to get to Curtis? In other words, if generation starts at 7 am, how long for water to rise at Curtis switch?

No - it's above the DH. I think they stop stocking above the DH during the DH season, and then during the non-DH season, they stock a few points up river from Van Zants up to the campground. Just...
