    Okay…exactly how do you plane a tapering triangle???
    I mean, I guess I could Google it, but this is more fun.

    One way is to make or buy (mine came from Lebanon, Oregon) something called a planing form.

    This has an adjustable, 60 deg, groove in the surface top and bottom.

    Ah, yes!
    When I 1st looked your pics didn't load.

    Did you even see the documentary "Trout Grass?"

    My friends filmed it, it's very well done and about the journey of the bamboo

    Thanks Jorn,

    I seem to recall that you used to own a Leonard.

    I fished with the rod last evening and caught two trout and a grayling before a sudden squall forced a retreat.

    On the Gibbons (Yellowstone) today. Not much action, but it was so beautiful and peaceful that I didn't care.

    My best fishing days often involve not much in the way of actual fish. I don’t do it often enough to improve, I guess, but I still love being out there.

    Agreed.

    Big fish of the day on Obsidian Creek in Yellowstone. Brookies were eager but very small.

    I always think of Richard Brautigan when trout fishing comes up.

    Went trout fishing for practice (fresh water is for remembering how to tie knots) in advance of a three+ week Mexico fishing expedition

    I caught hundreds of fish, but one highlight was smashing the known world record for Spotted Rose Snapper, Lutjanus guttatus.

    This winter after I'm retired again I plan to spend time sitting around tying knots. And then tugging on them to see if that's where the line snaps. I find it annoying to be fumbling around trying to change flies fast or tie on another lure to replace the lost one and taking forever. And then breaking off right at the knot on the next cast. Parallel to changing a flat much? Yes. But knots are something you gotta do almost by feel when it's dusk and browns the size of your leg are coming up everywhere around you.

    I use forceps to grip the hook, twist the line, and then pull the knot tight. I should have known to do this, but it was a hard lesson in the Slough Creek Second Meadow (Yellowstone) this past summer. It was breezy, I had just narrowly missed tripping over a sleeping bull bison, and on my third cast, the fly snapped off at the eyelet. My knot was good, the fly was not. I got out another fly (black fly) and it blew out of my hand and was lost. The next fly, I used the forceps.

    The forceps are usually hanging off my fishing fanny pack. We catch a lot of small fish and they come in handy for getting the hook out.

    If you whack the hook on a rock during the cast it will break. I fished for a good long time once missing strike after strike. When I finally took a look at the fly, the hook was gone. Just the fly and the eye of the hook left.

    I met a fly tier who used to loop a length of leader through the eye of the hook to create a pre-attached tippet end on his smaller flies. Then he would blood-knot the other end of the tippet to his leader when he put on the fly. He said it was easier than trying to tie on the fly itself. But I never could tie a proper blood knot so I don't know.
