Ladders for Fly Fishing Nevada Lakes

Using ladders to fly-fish wasn’t invented in Nevada — I first saw them used in the Keys in the 1980s to help anglers get better visual angles on bonefish — but they do find an unusual use there: enabling fly fisherman to cast in deeper water where the larger cutthroats are. “‘Initially, they would take a milk crate and stand on that to get a little higher, but over the years, that has changed to an a-frame painting ladder with nice steps and a shelf on the top that makes it a nice little fishing ladder.'” Zoe Rose in the Fallon Star Press.
