Re: Euro nymphing/tight line nymphing line???

Why do you need a fly line?

When I use a setup with fly line (very rarely), I use Rio's nymphing line. Most of the times I don't have a fly line on the reel. I just tie about 100 yards of .35 soft...

Re: What to use to clean cork?

In my opinion, Mr Clean's Magic Eraser is the best; just wet it and scrub gently. In 15 seconds you are done!

WTB spare spool for Lamson Litespeed LS2 (previous model)

Title says it: I'd like to buy a spare spool for the previous model of the Litespeed LS2. I could also trade an LS1.5 spool for an LS2, if that would interest you.

Thanks,

Re: Fly tying saves money?

TS47 pretty much nailed it for me. Tying flies made me become a better fly fisherman.
I also enjoy giving away some of the producing flies and "teaching" others how to use them.

Re: Nymphing and weights

How about trying european style nymphing? No shots needed... The weight of the flies is all you use.
And you will probably catch more fish too....
