Have lived in Portland, OR for nearly 20 years and finally got to fish on the Metolius River in Central Oregon and caught some redband trout. According to the locals, it is an offshoot of the rainbow...

Re: Do you still have the first fly fishing outfit you ever bought?

I still have my first setup, a Reddington 9 foot 5wt, medium action rod and a System1 click and pawl reel.

Used it for 10+ years and caught lots of fish with it and it is still my backup rod/reel...

My cousin lives just outside of Twin Bridges, MT and he has a little tributary off of the Beaverhead that runs through his property. It isn't quite so small that you can jump across it but it...

Re: Are Fly Vests a Thing of the Past?

Hi Dean,

Yes my FishPond does have a waist belt, but I never thought of using it at the same time as the shoulder strap. I just watched the video of the Patagonia chest pack and saw that he wears...

Re: Are Fly Vests a Thing of the Past?

I had a fishing vest for years and last year my wife bought me a Fishpond shoulder/sling pack. Out of appropriate marital deference, I used the sling pack this year on our annual trip to Montana. It...

Re: the realm of scotch

Was a big Scotch drinker for a long time, but have been transitioning to Bourbon more and more.

Re: Going old school: Sage 505L or Orvis CFO III?

Mechanically, is there anything I should look for in either the CFO or Sage 505 that would raise a concern about its reliability? I don't plan on buying one without being able to check it out first...

Re: Going old school: Sage 505L or Orvis CFO III?

Thanks for the input. Obviously the Sage reels pre-date the internet so I can't find a lot of spec info on those reels. I didn't think about the weight of the reel and since modern rods are so much...

Re: SA's Sharkskin lines

I have been using 5WF Sharkskin line for the past 2 seasons. It is certainly expensive line and I would not have bought it on my own (it was a birthday gift).

Re: Spine on rods

As an avid golfer, this is a religious discussion for golfers as well as fishermen. All graphite rods (or golf shafts) will have a spine. For some it is more pronounced than others, but ALL will have...

Re: what are your priorities when buying a rod?

do you find fly rods generally too expensive?
