just put the new rod on the neighbors pond roughly 100 x 80. after casting in the yard fiqured i'd see how it did on the water. threw about 20 cast with no fly at all. that's right no fly. want the first catch to come tomorrow with bigdon. want something good or at least the chance for something good. probally gotta catch alot of flack for what i did though. because of the length difference and my wrist breaking over i went out and got a wulff wristlock. was getting about 50 ft. with no leader in the yard without the wristlock. was getting about 60 ft. plus with it on the water with a wicked cross wind. so i believe that the wristlock did help.
doug m. the sylk cast just great. have to say a big improvement over the el-cheapo. so far very impressed with the combo. hopefully will have pictures tomorrow of me and bigdon with some fish on the fly.

when you get used to that Double taper, try throwing a weight forward line... See what kind of distance you get....

went out today. terrible day fishing high nasty winds and only one small bluegill on the new rod. so you think that a weight forward line would make a difference compared to the double taper? bigdon is supposed to be sending me photos of todays trip. once i get them i'll post them.

Freezy Man,
If you need some help with the pics let me know or email them to me and I can adjust the size of them for you. I think the limits are 1024 X 768 image size and 39.1KB in file size.
Later,
Terry

thanks for the offer. i tried to crop them down and still couldn't get them small enough. going to try and save them as a bitmap and then decrease the compression ratio to get them down to 39.1.

got the photos to work.

Have you tried uploading them into the gallery? Depending on how huge they are the gallery is setup to auto resize them.

just loaded some pics of me and 1 of bigdon into the gallery. much easier than trying to crop and shrink them down. hoping that the catch this weekend will be bigger than that one.

you can then link to the image to display it in your posts by copy & pasting the IMG code into the reply box.

I made that one of you casting into an avatar for you if you are interested. You can go into your userCP and choose it. It is located on the second page of the list.

I have also uploaded here for you to see.
