You may be right. I understand that the count is not for unique hits... but 119 hits?... So you're saying that all of the voters have looked at this strand an average 10 times each? Why would they do that I wonder? I suppose some lookers didn't cast a vote, or perhaps they didn't understand that you even could cast a vote. Perhaps they were uninterested.

Anyway, its not that important really. I just though a little poll might a fun thing to do. A little interaction is always fun... I thought. I’ll keep trying, maybe a different poll topic would be in order.

So anyway... ya going fishing this weekend???


Steve

Yeah, but I'm not sure where yet. I may go to Bellwood in Tyler and drown some minnows for crappie. I went to Monticello today but didn't catch a bass, not even a bream, and it didn't seem to matter what fly I threw at them.

I only have 1 at this point. 9' 5wt because I was under the impression that this was the best to learn with. Eventually I would like to get a 3wt for the BeaversBend trout and the bream and maybe a 7 or 8wt for the bigger bass like in Fork.
As far as having 50, the wife is pretty sympathetic to my "habits" but i imagine she would draw the line before it got to that point

Two small crappie, that was it. The fish weren't cooperating today.

Brian, if you were wanting that big rod for just plain larger bass, a 7 or 8 might work. For Fork however, I'd recommend a nine.

I know Brian Gambill who guides on Fork, and he rarely fishes anything smaller than a ten. He has broken twelve weights when setting the hook on a fish. The nine will also work to turn over the bigger hairbugs better as well.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

Default Re: How Many Fly Rods Do You Own

I suppose I might as well confess ... Fly rods owned number in excess of 50 ranging from a Blue Water 14 all the way down to a couple of little 2-weights. I think it is a sufficienf number to keep me in the running for the most toys when I finally rest my head.

Why don't you start a new thread on who owns the most fly reels?

Doug
