Re: China made Vests, slings & Packs users? Fishpond Copies?

A couple of years ago I bought an inexpensive "brand name" (Redington) vest that was on sale and the zipper failed after only a few months of light use. Redington told me to send it back at my cost...

Re: Help us choose a new T-Shirt Design

I would choose option 2. I think option 3 would be a good color for a ladies tee if you are doing some for the women.

Re: What leggings to where for salt water fishing

Yes the Adidas were tight fitting like compression pants. Good for sun protection, bugs, crabs, walking thru brush/mangroves and no flapping in the wind. Easier to wade than loose pants and quiet...

Just returned from the Caribbean and the guide I used gave me a pair of Adidas leggings to wear when wading, and they worked well. I know that Under Armor also make several types of compression...

Re: Need some line advice on a Redington CT

Thanks weiliwen, that's good info too. I have a number of unused reels at the moment so hopefully should be able to find one that balances well with the rod.

Re: Senior design project, fly reel survey

Agree. Last year was the first time I ever fished in the salt and was also the first time I had no chance of even coming close to keeping up with a fish. Hooked a small bone that ran straight away...

Re: Big Rattle Snake on a 6wt Fly Rod, look at the bendů

Don't you think that others could say virtually the same thing about us? Why would someone take the time to tie fur and feathers onto pointed pieces of metal to hook and drag fish in for "no good...

Re: Ideas on wet-wading shoes?

I am with nevadastig on this. The boots give good traction and support. Only thing I would add is to make sure the neoprene socks have gaitors (or have separate gaitors). I had a pair of neoprene...

Was able to retire about a year ago, primarily on a company pension. Have savings too but so far haven't had to touch them.
While I say I'm retired, it is more like semi-retired. Do some casual...

Re: Kudos to Ross Worldwide

I had a similar result dealing with Ross on an Essence FW rod I purchased. Great customer service. Should also mention that rod performed really well for me and for the price, was a great bargain.

Re: Follow the rules, I got my first ticket. :(
