Re: I need a rod for my mom

Nothing to trade, but if you want a low cost beginner rod, check out the Flextec CRX88. It'll run you about $83 off ebay, including shipping. There's some reviews of it on the UK forums. Got one...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

I was born in SE Idaho, but grew up away from here and only recently returned. Also, I only recently got a second canoe this winter, so I haven't used it a lot here yet, just Bruneau and Crystal...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

I don't think canoes are way out in front of toons Joni, at least not in any objective sense. They are *FOR ME* but that's because of my preferences. Nor do I think that toons are just a fad, I'm...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

You know, I find it quite amusing that in a thread full of pontoon boat lovers and one lone canoe guy, the tooners are so defensive that they can't abide the possibility that toons are less than...

Re: Weight of unlabeled rod?

Just FYI, it's pretty common for the factory rating on rods to differ from the CC rating. Most commonly it seems that the CC rating is heavier than the factory rating, but sometimes it's the other...

Re: Weight of unlabeled rod?

Another possible option is to try the Common Cents (http://www.common-cents.info/caq.htm) system for measuring it. If you don't want to read the whole shebang from the link, the basic process is: ...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

I've never capsized a canoe unintentionally, but no, I don't find them any more stable that way. If anything they're less stable. I'll admit I haven't run rapids with one, but I have done a fair...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

I think it's largely a matter of priorities. You can see pontoons either as having all the advantage of a tube and of a canoe, or as having all the disadvantages of both. Which way you go is...

Re: Noob question

I'm guessing that there's not a lot of difference between building a spin rod and a fly rod, except for selection of materials. Is that right? If so, I wonder if I might not be better off building...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

Nice try Joni.

And it's cool you like your pontoon and all, but I'll stand by my facts on pontoons. They're nice for day trip river fishing. But on flat water, they just don't make much sense. ...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

My canoe rides on the truck, I can mount it solo. Yeah, I can stand in it. Not sure why I'd want to though. I've seen pontoons use the oars. My barge of a canoe goes faster without breaking a...

Re: Float Tube vs Inflatable Boat

I've been fishing out of a Sevylor inflatable kayak for quite a while. It works quite well and I don't have any difficulty managing fishing and a paddle at the same time. It's a lot easier to head...

Re: Tried something new today

I need to learn to fish for those. It's a shame being in this part of the country and not getting in on that action.

Re: Noob question

Understood. My question was motivated by wondering whether it could be accomplished in a sufficiently timely fashion to give me a rod to fish with if I didn't have any other. Since I've arranged to...

Noob question

So, assuming that I am reasonably handy, how long would it take to build a rod if I started with a kit from Cabela's or the like? I mean both in terms of hours of work and also in minimum time from...

Re: Adjusting the cast to the action.

Does that mean increase the pause time by the amount I decrease the stroke time, or decrease the pause time by the same proportion as the stroke time?

Adjusting the cast to the action.

Can someone give me a brief primer on how to go about adjusting my cast to a faster rod? I know I'm going to have to watch and see what happens, but I'd like to know how to start out making changes....

Changing out reel seat

I don't think I'm up to building an entire rod yet, but I have a couple that I'd like to change the reel seats and maybe the cork on. How hard/doable is this?

One of them is my wife's rod. It's...

Re: March Brown Hidden Water 9' 5wt 7piece

I'm pretty motivated to move this so I can replace it. If anyone's been thinking about it, feel free to make me an offer. I'll also consider trades, though they would need to be at least 4 pieces...

That said, there's quite a bit of choice in the range you mention. It would help to...
