Re: Whoops-Vise Trouble

I would try a dental pick or bodkin to see if you can chip it off. if that doesn't work I'd hit it with a bic lighter.

Re: Just curious, how many fly reels do you own?

I used to think I had too many, after reading through this I'm beginning to think I don't have enough. At least they don't take up much room. My count is at 10.

Re: Fly Fishing Apparel Questions

The reason I like the pant legs on is because of nettles or the poison parsnip that is common in my area. The full legs offer protection from that and keeps sand and pebbles out of my boots.
