Re: Split shot help?

I've found that softer lead shot, such as Lemer and Blackbird, tends not to slip as much. But, personally, I forego shot and use tungsten putty. If rolled on your leader very thin it stays in place and, perhaps more importantly, it is easy to adjust the weight by adding or removing a bit of the putty.

Re: RIP Nelson Bryant

I, too, am saddened by this news. I remember many a day when, as a kid, reading Nelson Bryant brought light into my dark and dingy NY apartment.

Re: New regulations in region 3

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, CJ. As soon as I'm done with this post, I'll write a letter as a "tourist" who comes back to the Catskills in part because of the wild trout in the tributaries.

Re: Fall fishing

That's a lovely fish. And, in my imagination, its beauty is magnified by the beauty of the place where you caught it.

Re: Nail knot or...

I make a tiny (1/8") loop at the end of my fly line using ten pound Berkely fused crystal superline and a uni knot. I make the loop and then secure it with the superfine. A drop of superglue secures it. Then I just tie on the butt of my leader to the tiny loop. Easy to attach, easy to detach. Alex

Re: Some recent brook trout

Those aren't the kinds of brook trout I come to SGM to read about. Could the administrators fumigate this site?

A hook straightened by a large fish is a badge of honor.

Re: Couple of good ones

Joe, There are many places to look for information about Euro or tightline nymphing, but I think that one of the best is troutbitten.com. Just look up "mono-rig" on Dom's site. As for indicator placement, I think that adjusting the indicator is overrated. There is an assumption out there that when u...
