See post #6.

These worms are well trained to exacting standards and can balance monetary limits.
Their efforts were aimed for your benefit, and others who may listen to worms.

There is an L.L. Bean in Fayetteville, NY.
Not far from the Filthy River.
The worms were hoping you'd put one and one together.
We over-estimated you.

...c'est la vie.

Pearls before swine.
And now you have disturbed my Carpathian War Dog Truffle Training.
...See what you've done?

Not trying to hi-jack this thread, but what kind of micro spikes do people prefer? I used short hex head screws for many years and switched to the kold kutters a couple years ago. I wonder how micro spikes compare to studs. I've been using Kahtoola brand micro spikes on the trails for a few years and I think they're great; very sticky. I never thought about using them in the river...

Oh yeah! I forgot to mention, Serotonin's thoughts and opinions should be taken seriously. Many years of hard work and success yields genuine knowledge and wisdom, which is not easy to find in a google search.

I know nothing! -most favorite German philosopher Sgt. Schultz.


I know one thing. Fish don't care which waders you wear. -S.


I like it here because there is so much to learn and unlearn.

Exactly why I posted here... There are many years worth of knowledge and experience to draw from....

My apologies for the harshness. I expect heavy sarcasm etc. at other forums...

Again if could make it to an llbean or was confident in online ordering I would have gone that route. Scheduling just didn't permit it..

I'm hoping so. First time on the river.

I'll post a trip report if there's anything worth reporting

Try those Kahtoolas the next time you face a slippery river like the Salmon. I've used mine in those situations for four years now and don't notice any wear at all. I feel glued to the river bottom and like them even more when conditions get cold and icy.

I'll be honest I have spikes and I am a bit unnerved with them. I am used to felt and feel at ease with felt. With the spikes I found myself tripping over them. Yea its easy to say lift your feet and don't shuffle but old habits die hard.

WB, you might be onto something. Would his Carpathian War Dog be the basis of his foreign policy?

He's pretty good but he ain't no Donald Trump.

BTW, I tied a big yellow bucktail tonight...I call it "Trumps Hair". It's a "beautiful" fly.

I've only ever used Korkers boots with the omnitrax studded soles. I've done some pretty hairy crossings on that river and haven't had an issue.

Next up is the Bern which goes to the left when retrieved, the Hilary with a big polyester butt.

I use these http://www.caddiswaders.com/products...uxe&product=14

I believe they MSRP for ~$130 but you can probably find them easily for $90. I paid about that for mine and have gotten 4 solid seasons out of them. When they start to leak or tear I won't feel bad about giving them to somebody with time to repair them and getting a new pair.

I also use these boots http://www.simmsfishing.com/shop/wad...s-sneaker.html

I love the fact that I can throw some yaks or my old micros on them and have plenty of grip year round, or I can comfortably wear neoprene wading socks with them and be fine fishing shallow coastal waters in the summer when Keen Newports aren't enough.

Thanks, I'll be leaving them in the trunk year round now! Perfect for a pair of sneakers during the wet wading season too.
