Re: Swimming BWO

Got it! I was thinking the entire braided section was 9'. Thanks for the description on your caddis. Sounds kind of similar to a Fox's poopah, except of course that fly does not have a soft hackle wrap or tungsten cone. Appreciate your help!

Re: Swimming BWO

Ron, thanks for the reply. Couple more questions if you don't mind please. The furled leader is 9'. How much tippet are your running between the ring and the soft hackle?

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

I'm not sure what distant learning is, but I'll try to stay on topic! I've only had one opportunity to fish to rising trout on the Guad, and Lord only knows what they were eating. I couldn't see anything on the surface, so perhaps emergers just under the surface? A friend and I actually had some dec...
