Story of life

Posted 05-13-2016 at 08:15 PM by bip

When I was 14, my dad took his boys fishing in Crested Butte, Colorado. He didn't do the usual worm and salmon egg fishing, he broke out his fly rods. My brother and I were exposed to the wonderful world of fly fishing.

Wading in the Slate River, we were both out of our element. I had never cast a fly rod, my brother the same. My dad was very patient with us. He worked with us individually, and kind of just watched us go.

My brother is 4 years younger than...

In search of a 7'6" to 8'6" 2wt or 3wt small water rod

Posted 05-13-2016 at 07:41 PM by bip

For the last few weeks, I have been searching, reading, talking, thinking, and casting rods. I have been searching for the one rod that I cannot leave on the shelf. It has been more difficult than picking out a new car. I want to get a premium rod. My wife has given me the green light to pick out a new fly rod for my 50th BD. ****, I am getting old. I have casted some Sage, Reddington, and Scott's. So far, the Radian has been the one rod that truly surprised me. It is a very nice rod. Any...

Someone Ask About The Roll Cast;

Posted 04-03-2016 at 06:14 PM by Hardyreels

I jumped right in and started writing, wouldn't you know it, the original poster never came back to say any more. I shouldn't let that bother me and in reality it does not but I hate to write something that seems meaningful only to see it lost / buried in the inactive threads here.

Sooner or later someone else will ask the same question so I'll stash this here where I can find it

A good roll cast is executed in the same way that a good Spey cast is done but without...

This post is just an attempt to share with those who read these entries as to what it is that I'm doing during winter. These past 3 winters have been warmer than even the 3 before them. Along with the warmer conditions there has been less snowfall with each progressing year.
