Q:I was up in the high country slaying the brookies AKA "breakfast trout" when it was necessary to tie on a new tippet. Now I know that the size of my leader and tippet material have not changed size in the last decade. But, given the difficulty I had with that knot and with tying on those #14 and #16 parachute adams and elk hair caddis, I am now convinced that the planet is experiencing Global Dimming. What do you folks think, do we need to add a concern about Global Dimming to the rest of our climate change worries?
Q:Some silly ad on TV showed some guy taking his grandson fishing, but his outfit looked like a 9wt fly reel with flyline mounted on a spinning rod and the terminal tackle was fitted with a bobber. Anyone out there familiar with this type of fishing or is the prop guy for that production company just clueless about fishing and assumes we are too?
