Re: Floating Line for New 5wt Legend Elite?

I tend to agree with this statement. I own a Legend Elite 905. I think I would stay away from a line as heavy as the GPX. I would not have a problem with Rio Gold, which is a little lighter or even...

Re: Prescription sunglasses

If you are looking for regular style sunglasses, there was a long thread a few months ago. I just ran a search under the "Tackle Talk" > "Other Gear" forum for prescription sunglasses. I found it and...

Re: Blending dubbing

Of the responses I've seen in this thread... I'm the newb here and likely the least qualified to answer questions about fly tying. I can offer some advice though - newb to newb. If I'm wrong, one of...

I'm a bit of a newb myself. Sometimes, I do blend dubbing to get the color I want. Doing this can save you from buying additional...

Re: Need editing help/ advise on Adobe.

I don't know how extensive your video editing is. Adobe makes a somewhat scaled down and perhaps more user friendly program exclusively for video editing - and it's only $80.

Re: Best way to tie legs on a nymph??

Silver,

Here is planettrout's response to your question.

I got an excellent dyed Olive Partridge skin from Wapsi about a month ago. It depends on the pattern I am tying. Most of the time, I...

Re: Advice on Magnifers / Lights

For real quality without breaking the bank, try anything from a company called Daylight.

For flexibility - plug-in or take it with you and runs on battery power, try a company called Carson...

Re: Clearwater vs Access Rod and Reel Size Questions for Newbie

I have the 8wt BVK and like it very much. I'm not sure it feels as fast as some of my other rods. The tip feels quite lively. I'm not sure I would steer you away from it. In that weight rod, you may...

Re: Idea for getting youth involved...

Re: Are there retail fly industry sales statistics for...?

Yes! I enjoyed that part! :)



I'm going to wager that you know more about this than I do. In my perhaps still lacking opinion it seems like the "value proposition" is changing. Consumers still...

Flytire,

If you're still watching this thread, I took your advice and ordered The Fly Tier's Benchside Reference. Haven't received it yet. I'm thinking it will be a good reference tool for me.

Re: Small flies - what box (or other method) do you use?

I think it's called an IC Clip or IC Hook just in case the OP likes your idea. :)

I'd actually like to get a few IC hooks with a big flat butt on them (no jokes) so they would be easy to stand on...

Re: Are there retail fly industry sales statistics for...?

Interesting read gotmilk. Many of these have already been touched on.

On cleanliness, I tend to think that old wood, rustic appearance could play in a "fly shop" retailer's favor. Leaving trash...

Re: What's your favorite fly box?

For larger...
