    You think we’re going to hang you? No, you’re going to eat the rope and no spaghetti sauce either.

    Was that on the North American forum Scotty? I tried posting on it for awhile but finally left for good a few days ago. Those guys are idiots.

    Pretty sure Lamiglas is E glass and the Stephan is S glass. The Stephan will a bit stiffer. Stiffer by glass standards.

    I can buy a nice bamboo rod for that. I’ve always thought custom glass rods are over priced. It’s easy to roll a glass blank compared to making a cane rod.

    My ex-mother in law hated me. She thought I wasn’t good enough for her daughter.

    So, in turn, I thought my mother in law wasn’t good enough for my wife.

    We never got along. Her husband worked in a gas station doing grease jobs. I was a factory trained dealer mechanic. She used to always tell me her husband was a better mechanic than I was. I told her you don’t have to be a mechanic to do grease jobs. She would turn red and smoke would come out of her ears.

    Which flies caught the fish. I always had the best luck with Stewart’s black, but all the others worked too. Just not as much.

    Slow healing. I haven’t drowned a fly yet this year.

    Soon hopefully.

    Make one up. If they complain just say that’s what you thought it was. Do they check that?

    Scotty…….of course you won’t find many browns on high mountain creeks. That’s cutthroat and brookie water. That doesn’t mean cutthroats won’t be at lower altitudes. I’ll use the Arkansas River as an example. There was a time when it was nothing but cutthroats. It’s the only native trout we have. That was before browns, brookies and rainbows were introduced by man.
    So when I say the browns ate the cutthroats and the brookies starved the brookies. I didn’t mean on the same waters.

    As for the bones in small brookies? I’ve heard you can eat them. I still tend to pull the bones off the meat after it’s cooked. I’m sure I eat some of the smaller ones. If I don’t feel a crunch I just keep on chewing.

    Let me also add something to what the warden told me. I didn’t know I had to keep going into more details. To get to the creek i’m talking about you have to go through and park at the fishery. It was that fishery that was stocking the creek with greenbacks and was upset over the brookie problem. The conversation I was having was with a warden who happened to be there and three fishery employees. We were talking about the brookie problem and everybody was upset over it. The warden at that point told me to keep or throw away as many brookies as I wanted. The three fishery employees backed him up by saying…Please do. We’re having a terrible time getting rid of the brookies. I knew I had to come back through the fishery when I left. I felt safe to catch a few extras. Especially, since I was helping conservation.
    Does this make more sense now?

    I don’t think he was telling me to do it all over Colorado. This was for just the creek I was fishing. It’s right above a fishery near Leadville. They were trying to breed the Greenback Cutthroats in the creek which are in big trouble in this state.

    I didn’t throw the brookies away but did take a mess of them home to eat. It’s the only fish i’ll eat.
