Re: Stripping Basket Question

I'm in agreement with Rip Tide. I've read threads online where guys have gone on and on and on and oooooooooon about the pros and cons of drilling holes or not drilling holes...personal preference. ...

Re: Radian loose sections. Help.

I agree with latter two posters. While others comments above are helpful (and might possibly make a difference for you) it's more likely (in my opinion) that this is a rod that needs to return to...

Re: Patagonia waders

I wouldn't be afraid of trying those at all! As others have said, you can't beat Patagonia's return policy (same as LL Bean in my experience). Beyond that, they offer a fantastic wader in the Rio...

Re: Recent Maine trout trip

That's a nice area for sure- I live just over an hour from the spot you're talking about. Some year, you should come up and try the ponds within Baxter during the month of June (either north side...

Re: Last week in the north woods

Wonderful pictures of some nice memories made...looks like a great trip. The winters can be long up here, but Maine really is a great place to hang your hat!

Re: Tried a float tube for the first time

Those FishCat 4's are a fantastic tube for the $...Outcast really does it right (IMO) when it comes to tubes! While I love my Super Fat Cat, I think the FishCat's are actually a little faster when...

Re: Ross (original not LT) Evolution frames

Those original Evolutions are wonderful trout reels! At one time, I had quite a few Ross Reels, but the only one I've kept is my Evolution 2. :icon_wink

Re: Tried a float tube for the first time

Welcome to the world of float tubes! I've found my canoes seem to be collecting a little more dust since I started tubing years ago...will always love fishing from a canoe at times, but I think for...

Re: Hardy Zenith Fly Rod

Always a good idea to go for a test run when you can! I realize I'm the minority, but was shocked the first time I casted a 9' 5 Wgt Zenith during a fly expo. I had been reading report after report...

Re: First time targeting wild brook trout

Beautiful reel and beautiful fish! I love Brook Trout and am blessed to have so many waterways holding native populations of them so close to home here in Maine.

Re: Favorite line clippers?

I might just try a pair of those Hatch Nippers as well...good company that doesn't put out junk. To me, nippers are one of those underrated items that you just want to work and cut through most any...

Re: The Legend of Lefty

Lefty is quite the icon- no doubt about it! A few years back when I ran into him at a fly show, he graciously took a few moments to work on my casting technique with me- I'll never forget it. Very...

Re: Waders vs. Shorts

Too many leaches in the water up here to wet wade! :D No, I have on occasion, but generally prefer a nice light pair or breathables whether wading or in the float tube...as of late, I've really been...

Re: What do you consider a "caught" fish?

This is a funny poll (in a good way). I'll admit that I've often been suspicious about fish sizes and numbers of fish caught by some guys I know here locally...things tend to get stretched rather...

Re: Do you buy or tie?

Re: Barbless or barbed hooks?

I've fished both for different reasons- and will likely continue to do so. Typically, my decision is not necessarily based on species, but rather hook quality/availability for a given fly I'm...

Re: How do you get to the fish?

Re: How Many Fly Boxes Do You Carry In Your Vest/Pack?

For me, this really depends on how I'm fishing. If wading, I'll often only have two or three boxes in my chest pack/vest. If I'm fishing from the float tube, I may have 6-8...lots of room in those...

Re: Anybody here use a float tube and cannot swim?

Generally speaking, I tend to agree with this. You have to almost be really trying to flip this one for it to be a reality. With that said, if you feel more comfortable wearing a PFD, by all means...
