Re: Hoy Vey! New dog, "Mz. Turkey," adopt a Dog, got out the front door.

I wouldn't let a little tubby tabby like him on the set of a Jenny Craig commercial with all those hungry people around. It could be right dangerous for him. :D

Re: Snakes on my Brain

JP,
best advise I can give you is " Be aware of your surroundings ". Look ahead and pick your path. Stepping over rocks blow downs, take extra time to look.
I normally don't kill any snake. I have...

Re: When you think you're at a low point; best medicine going.

We have 3 dogs and 3 cats in the house. Thank goodness the 4 goats stay in the back yard.
When I am tying or at the computer, they are all near by. One of my cats sometimes will sit in my lap...

Re: Are you a binge tyer or slow and steady?

Slow and not too steady. Just been tying a short time after a 12+ year hiatus. Slowly gathering supplies and spending net time looking at patterns for warm water fishing.

Re: Forbidden Gadgets

JP, you might want to look at Air-lock Indicators instead of Thingama Bobbers.
They are a bit more in price, but they don't crimp your leader. I like them much better.

Re: All I want for Christmas is....

Fly tying supplies! That's what I answered when my wife asked. " Order what you need " she answered, with emphasis on need. I will be well stocked for the winter's tying.

Re: Aluminum V-Hull on the River?

Make sure your boat has flotation foam that is in good shape. If it is water logged or missing, you could lose your whole rig. I have a 14' semi-V that someone had removed the foam. I used the 1"...

I read most all the output of this forum and filter as necessary. If we all thought the same way, stagnation would set in and advancement would cease.

I received my conformation last night. I had ordered some Allen hooks last week, so I will check my stash again and top it off for winter tying.

Re: Furled leaders and tippet rings... What am I missing here?

Before going to furled leaders, I was using 7' or 9' tapered mono leaders, with 2 tippet size steps tied on. If I got a tree fish, breaking off usually curled the leader. Plus straightening a new...

Sorry if the term "dog in this fight " was seen to be inappropriate. Down here it is used instead of the word debate. As to personal attacks, I haven't seen any in this thread. Just some strong...

The smallest rod we own is a Redington 8'-6" 3wt. My wife only uses her 5wt, because she can cast it best. We only fish warm water lakes and ponds using barbless hooks and strictly catch and release....
