Re: Yellowstone Bears have changed their diet.

About 20 years ago my family and I were in Yellowstone. One of the "underground" attractions was finding folks in the evening glassing the grassy meadows at the bottom of mountains watching the elk...

Re: Is there a limit?

I know I'm doing it and it drives me nuts! I can get the head of the line out while stopping at 2 O-clock. Much past that and I start to open up. I've been watching vids, but should probably shoot...

Re: Newby casting dilema

Thanks for the help! I'm going to try making a loop out of the butt material of a leader.

Is there a limit?

To how far you can cast without a haul, or shooting line? I've been practicing with a 9' 5wt with 5wt wf-f line. I can cast the line with about 3' of running line past the end of the rod tip. Anymore...

Newby casting dilema

I bought a nice new flyline. I've been practicing in the yard, and the welded loop ended up splitting near where the loop was welded back to the mainline. I'm guessing the grass did this? I now have...

Re: The passing of a real outdoorsman

A tough situation. Drugs and alcohol are a serious issue in this country. May GOD give you peace and understanding. Sounds like he was fortunate to have someone like you in his life.

Re: Welded loop - lurker

Good to know. For now its just bluegills in small lakes. With my terrible casting, I think I'd drive myself nuts on a trout, or steelhead river LOL! I doubt the loops will pull very tight for now.

Re: Welded loop - lurker

Thanks,

That's what I did. It sure seems that if I ever need to change the leader that it will have cut into the welded loop. Is this the case, or is flyline quite tough that way? The previous...

Welded loop - lurker

I want to be set free from my chains!;)

I'm terribly green, which is why I don't post and mostly just read... I bought a new flyline and it has a welded loop. What is the best way to attach my...

Re: Floating line sinks?

Good explanations. I think its probably a cheap line. I bought a Cabelas combo last year. I believe its Prestige fly line. It floated nice the first few times out then started to sink. I bet the line...

Re: Floating line sinks?

What would be the effects of cutting a foot or so off the end of the fly line?

Thanks,

Floating line sinks?

Firstly, I'm pretty green so please bear with me.

The last time I fly fished, my WF5F line was starting to sink at the tip where the leader is attached. The leader is attached to the flyline with...
