Re: Scott S4s or Tidal?

Have not cast the Tidal but have cast the S4S when I was looking for an 8wt. While it was both powerful and accurate, it was a tad too fast and stiff for me. From what I have read the Tidal is a...

Re: The quintessential 8ft 4 wt?

I never did get my 8ft 4wt...partly because I was looking for the right 6wt streamer rod and partly because my new favorite fishing spot would be better suited with a shorter 3 wt. The answer to...

Re: Perfect rod

There are folks out there who will dismantle a factory rod and put any grip or reel seat you want on it. Can be a bit spendy, but if you found the perfect rod then...

Re: New Winston - Boron III Plus

I had heard rumors of a new saltwater Winston but haven't seen anything on them yet. A buddy of mine was out this summer with Tom Larimer, who helped Winston develop their micro speys, and he...

Re: Looking for a new net

I've been very happy with my Silver Creek net from Cutthroat Leaders. The forum coupon made the price a little better to handle too. Now I need to fin a good magnetic release for it...

Re: What to use to clean cork?

I use a very mild dish soap (one of the environmentally friendly ones with no perfume or added dye) and an old tooth brush. Scrub very gently and allow to dry overnight before putting away. When I...

Re: Airflo Kelly Galloup streamer float fly line

This line would function in very much the same way a bass taper would. I agree with you on the Sixth Sense line in the wind as they use Airflo's Delta taper, which is a "presentation" taper. Great...

Re: Deciding on a new fly line

Yes, it is true to weight. Never tried the SA textured trout, but have used the regular Mastery Trout (I believe it has a different taper than the Textured Trout though). I like the Super Dri Elite...

Re: Deciding on a new fly line

Big plus 1 for the Airflo Super Dri Elite in WF5. I fish one on a Winston B3x and Loop Cross S1, both 5wts, and it's a great line for med-fast 5wts. Both the Rio Gold and Perception would be too...

Re: Fly Line

Ts47 brings up a great point, one that I don't give a second thought to here in Idaho but have seen first hand fishing in NM and AZ.

Cold water lines, whether they been advertised as bass or not,...

Re: Has anyone used this website

+1 on using Jerry aka hairwing50. He's who the fly tiers go to when we don't have time to tie our own and the profits support a noble cause. I just got an awesome box of "old school" wet flies from...

Re: Fly Line

Any line that is advertised for chucking heavy stuff would make a great bass line. I currently use the Airflo Mend (now called nymph/indicator) but will most likely try the Airflo Galloup's floating...

Re: Streamer Fishing Issue

1. Check your hook gap, a size 10 or 12 bugger is fairly small and they may have bent the hook when they tied it or used too narrow a hook.
2. Try a bigger bugger. I fish size 6 for Browns with good...

Re: Anyone use human hair to make a fly?

You could, but it wouldn't really behave like you would want/expect. Most mammals have 3 distinct types of hair - guard hair, fur and vibrassa (whiskers). Guard hairs are longer and stiffer then the...
