An Evening with the Drakes (pic heavy)

Beautiful evening on the water. Hot and too sunny to begin with but you could tell a hatch was going to come off.

Re: Brown Trout Pics

Young fellow and I got out for a few hours on Father's Day. Nice to see a few of these drifting down stream.

Re: Sage noobies

It states that the Accel is replacing the VXP which was developing a pretty good following. The new Accel is rated as a fair bit lighter but the price has crept up a hundred dollars. At $600 it had...

Re: Big fish, small flies

Great thread.

I don't have a lot to add except an experience with a very large Brown. I hooked him at dark during a Drake hatch (insert any idiot with a rod here) knowing full well he had rejected...

Re: Re finishing a reel

I have had great luck with Krylon Fusion paint on everything. I even did a rod blank with it and it held up. I recently did an old fly reel and it looks great but I have not fished it since painting....

Re: 9', #5 Rods - master of nothing....

Most modern 5wts are closer to true 6wt now anyway. With the popularity of 5.5wt lines like Grand and GPX I would suggest a 5.5wt is the best "jack of all trades" rod.

The golf industry followed...

Re: Rio gold

Maybe we just received a bad batch up here in Canada but I have had no less than 3 Rio lines literally crack to pieces.

Re: A Bridge Too Far? (pic heavy-long winded)

Re: A Bridge Too Far? (pic heavy-long winded)

The Cannon is a nice point and shoot for vacationing or family use. It will disappoint in low light or fast moving shots. They are completely different cameras.

Re: Redington Sonicdry Waders, Your Opinion?

The pockets on the Sonic Pro zipper model are worth mentioning as well. Lots of room for a phone, small camera or keys with zippers that seal. The inside pocket is especially handy for protecting...

Re: A Bridge Too Far? (pic heavy-long winded)

Just a guess on the grouse yardage. It may have been closer to 50 yards, I just knew it was out of 20 gauge range when I took the shot. :)

That is one shot of the grouse BTW. I blew it up on the...
