Depth Perception

A short snippet of what the caddis hatch can yield in Craig, Montana's Missouri River. Kind of how I remember it...


D.D.'s Brown Trout

Although not nearly as large as the previous post, this beauty also deserves some props.
D.D. did in fact catch this one on a Black Ant, and then release it back into the PhD section of the river. It was the only fish landed by the trio of D.D. Bear and myself during a recent Sunday excursion.

Johno's Big Trout

Johno's recent fishing trip in Trenton was highly successsful. Look at the size of this brown trout! Caught on a size 18 Blue Winged Olive Parachute and released.
The results of a few to many celebratory beverages can be seen in the photo below.

Fall is fast approaching

Salutation Minions,

Fall is fast approaching and it is time to consider Pulaski trips. I did not make one trip last year and would very much like to make it this year. Any thoughts?

Griptilian Replacement Review

Three Benchmade knives come immediately to mind. As most of us know, the Griptilian, like all of its sisters in the Benchmade harem, is an incredibly useful as well as well made cutting instrument. To replace an aged and decrepit Mini Griptilian I humbly suggest: another Mini Griptilian, the Mini Stryker Nitrous or the newfangled Mini Barrage.
Pluses and minuses:
Griptilian + good blade geometry, lower price point - PLASTIC scales, no Nitrous

Stryker + great blade geometry, moderate price, G10 scales, Nitrous, I am the satified owner of a high performing full size Stryker - 4.25 inches long

Barrage + good blade geometry, moderate price, Nitrous - PLASTIC scales

You're probably guessing by this point that I'm not a fan of pastic handles on higher quality knives.
