    Mistaken Identity

    AN RSS MIX UP!
    some river reports





    .. When we saw that GET OUTDOORS was posting about fishing poles, we trotted right over there hoping to see our friend Kuba.
    .. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that they were really talking about ultralight fishing rods.
    .. So as not to mess up all that wasted time; we'd like to introduce you to some fine folks and sites from POLEN.
    .. If you need carp, (Attn: Carp On The Fly,) go visit Atlantik Travel - MONSTERS! Should you want a taste of the Real Fishing Poles check out PolandPoland.com. And if you'd like some trout, and carp, and pike, and the other half of the picture of our buddy Kuba, visit Fishing In Poland. Don't plan to visit unless you enjoy wilderness, and the possibility of taking a Taimen, (or Huchen.)
    ..If all you want is the best fly fishing for trout and grayling in all of Poland, you can find it at Kuba's other site about The River San - a destination that even the English drool over. (The San is a large river draining from the Bieszczady Mountains National Park in the extreme South-East of Poland.)
    .. The site includes some wicked flies - don't look too closely, you'll see some woven flies to knock your waders off.

    .. The Madison River is where it's at on the West Side of the park. The big fish are being a bit reluctant, but it's early. Soft Hackle flies and small Dark Spruce flies are producing results. The fish are sulking a bit and they have to be hit in the nose. No reports of suicide takes yet. Brown Trout to 22" have been reported - we've even seen one photo to proove it.
    .. The Big Water Madison River fishing slowed a bit yesterday, but the fish were of good size. The guides that are doing the best are stopping at the holding water and wading to get to the fish in the protected water. Row vs. Wade is the topic of the day.
    .. There are some fuzzy rumors of very large fish in the Gibbon River Meadows. There was a bit of hopper action during the bluebird days interlude. We'll be up there Friday to check it out. There are only a few fish at the Gibbon Falls Plunge Pool. We'll be there too.
