Update on Winston 906 BIIIx

Update on Winston 906 BIIIx

I recently reviewed the upgraded 906 BIIx model from Winston based on experiences in Argentina. The focus was flies from size 8-1/0 (2/0). It is time for an update. Since I sold my trusty light allrounder (Winston BIIt 804) to finance my venture in S.A. fishing wise I am currently […]

Dries, Nymphs and thoughts on No-Kill

Today I went to the stream that I have been fishing on almost a daily basis for weeks now. Serious hatches of caddis are up every day and the fish are stuffing themselves in these insects. However this day was different from previous days. My regular size 16 caddis was […]
