there is a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Can I just ride along in the boat and read a book? My Dad always let me when I was a kid.

Hats off to those who actually catch fish. I could stand by my son and he would be pulling in fish. I pulled in decayed plants, little logs, etc. That's why I haven't been fishing in about 15 years. For me, it's just standing in the blazing sun holding a stick over the water! If I want a fish dinner, I'll sit down in Red Lobster. :^D

Some fly fishing missionary work (and honest, here in Utah, many of the streams, lakes, and reservoirs are far less busy on Sunday).

I have a lot of compassion for those who don't live where trout fishing is available (see Travers, Robert). I've got three or four graphite rods I've finished, and one split cane I use for special occasions. I've beaten some pretty big trout with it down on the Provo River below Deer Creek...

And of course, I have a float tube...

Incidentally, Eric, the owner of this site, agrees with me about fly fishing... And for Beth, fly fishing isn't about catching fish; it's about catching fish properly...

Of course in these days of catch-and-release there are a lot liars out there, unfortunately.

the Texas 3rd coast has speckled sea trout or "specs" ~

fishermen who are on that there advanced mode snatch them out of the salt-flats and back bays using fly rigs either wading or out of a kayak or "skinny water" boats ~

specs can also be found in the surf when the conditions are right ~

fly fishing is a high art which ziller aspires to one day delve into ~

the tying your own fly out of natural materials, perfecting the presentation, reading fish behavior = all fascinating ~

Spent my summers, with my Dad at San Luis pass. Caught specs, redfish, flounder, a seagull and a rattlesnake (Casted too far onto a bank with a live shrimp as bait, and the damn snake ate it.) Needless to say, I cut the line when I got him close. We had huge success with live bait and Johnson Sprites with a Mitchell 300's.

Hey Cabbie. Couldn't agree with you more about fly fishing and the main reason I live in Montana. Bring those great fly fishing rods up to Big Sky! We'll go wet a line. You have my email.

No, also to visit an old friend who lives there. We also tried for Kings but they just weren't there. In fact at least 3 rivers on the Kenai were closed to all fishing due to low runs. We did hike into a couple of lakes and hooked up with some grayling. But those were cooked over a fire and eaten on the spot.

Lucky re the halibut. It's getting prohibitively expensive. We used to often buy halibut 'n chips to eat on the pier or beach but now share just one dinner as the price has more than doubled. But it's so delicious. I've tried switching to the (marginally) less expensive cod but halibut is king.

When we were kids we used to play by the Fraser River up in the Valley. I'm shocked in retrospect that my parents let us do that, unsupervised. I often had this crazy impulse to stand waist high in the river to feel the rush of the water going past. It was fun to resist and mesmerizing. Not to mention bears in the area, also known to like fishing! I'm amazed I didn't get sucked into the deep and drowned. One of our neighbours caught a huge sturgeon there once. Not my choice of seafood!

I'm too squeamish anyway to fish. Touching all that wriggly bait. Ugh. I just want to see the catch on my plate, all tidy and delicious.

To ziller: Love the genius fish drawing above. Gonna steal it.

We be fishing for Kokanee, a fresh water, non-migrating form of sockeye salmon. We stuff them with a mixture of seafood and parmesan spiced nuts, then tin foil wrap and grill them...soooo nummy!
