Re: A vest with a fish pouch too...

I remember this. I actually grabbed some ferns & dip them into the cold river and tucked them into my present vest to help keep the fish cool till I got back.

Re: Salmon and steelhead rod

This is not a new rod, so you'll have to get it used, likely. Found them on ebay in the $3-500 range the other day. Well worth a look.

Re: Salmon and steelhead rod

I've got 4 salmon rods, and my Orvis Helios is by the best. If you cast all day long, it is worth the investment just for the weight savings. Feels like a 5 wt rod in hand VS a 8wt. Really gets those...

Re: Fly Fishing Reel Weight

I'd much rather have a 6-7 wt outfit, and be a bit heavy, then have a sweet little 3 wt in hand & have a 18'+ fatty strike. When you here the words "4 wt outfit", it sounds so close to a 6 wt, but in...

Re: Upgrade time... Just in time for my birthday!

Have you demoed a Orvis Helios Rod yet? It is beyond your budget, but it is worth saving for. If nothing else, give it a demo & see if it is worth waiting for. I think you'll be amazed.

Anyone...

You'll likely be able to find something near fly fishing for $35 grand, but not on a river I doubt. I have looked for 25 years, and found one thing I liked in all that time & it just so happened that...
