If you’re not tearing your labrum, you’re not casting hard enough!

Your fly should skate across the water like a little wave runner!

The only thing better than a hopper is two hoppers with a hopper dropper.  That’s three hoppers.

The single most essential piece of gear for any fishing trip is beer. The 2nd is also beer.

You can call it a strike indicator if you like.  I call it a bobber because it’s a bobber.

We were catching pike, perch, rainbow, brown trout, cutties, cutbows, brownbows, rainbrowns, cuttyrainbrowns, shark….
