Re: Finally...Real Waders!

I love my G3s and wouldn't trade them for anything, but when it gets hot and you still need to wear waders (i.e. on southern tailwaters) try the new Redington SonicDrys. Amazingly light and...

Re: Airlines and fly rods

First of all, yes, all commercial air travel sucks. Delta hasn't cornered the market on said suckiness, but they may lead the pack. Glad that I'm not alone in this opinion. I'm rapidly coming to the...

Re: Airlines and fly rods

I just flew to and from Missoula. Carried on my rods and reels and few miscellanea with an Orvis Safe Passage Carry-it-all (http://www.orvis.com/p/safe-passage-carry-it-all-rod-and-gear-case/2y2p)...

Re: Scott s4s7or 8 wt for general bonefishing in the Bahamas

If you already have a 9, then I would think that the 8 would be somewhat redundant. I'd lean towards the 7 to give you a little wider range. But then you probably are already thinking like that, thus...

Re: Scott s4s7or 8 wt for general bonefishing in the Bahamas

I was very happy with my S4s 8wt when fishing Long Island last year. If your question is Which do I get?, I'd suggest that the 8wt would handle the wind better.

Re: St. Croix Imperial vs. Avid

It occurs to me that I should mention how I came to acquire my Imperial. I went to the shop with $700 dollars in my hot little hand, completely ready to bring home a 5wt G2. Jim nodded his head, but...

Re: St. Croix Imperial vs. Avid

My gut feel is that the Avid would more closely replicate the G2 action (not sure which Winston you have), though I have not had my hands on that particular St. Croix. I do have a 5wt 8'6" Imperial...

Re: Best nippers?

Picked up a pair of the Simms yesterday and am impressed.

A factor worth mentioning is whether or not you will be using your nippers in the salt. A lot of the cheaper options suggested here will...

Re: new to fly fishing need advice on a setup

Having just spent a few days fishing out of SPI on the Laguna Madre, I can say with complete confidence that there are no redfish in southeast Texas. There is, however, lots and lots (and lots) of...

Re: What length bass leader

I think I've just been called a redneck. :upset:

Luckily, it's true.

Re: What length bass leader

I use 7-9ft of straight 15lb floro for most of my bass fishing. Start about 9ft and let it shorten with fly changes. When it gets to be about 7ft, re-add a couple feet or start over if the leader is...

Re: Are specialized fly lines overkill?

I couldn't have said this better myself. Agree 100%.

Re: Redington Sonicdry Waders, Your Opinion?

I'm a big Redington fan. As has been said, I think they put out a quality product at a reasonable price point.

I don't own any of their waders, however, only because I can't seem to kill my G3s.

Re: Short 6 wt

I overline mine a step with a 7wt front-loaded bass taper. But we may not be talking apples to apples. My Predator is the old model; the brown, pre-Sage acquisition (I think), version. Liked it so...

Re: Short 6 wt

A second vote here for the Predator. The 7'10" 6wt is a fun little rod. I use it when wading for river largemouths, throwing medium-sized clousers and poppers. Handles the flies and the occasional...

Re: Sealed Drag Reels

Interesting. Yours is the second comment I've read this week on the possibility that textured lines might be spooking bonefish. I give a LOT of credence to "keen observation." My first thought was...

Re: Sealed Drag Reels

The NRX looks inviting, but I'm mounting mine on a Scott S4s #8 and loading it with Chard's Grand Slam. A sweet setup, for sure.

Re: Fly fishing magazines, your favorite?

Southern Culture on the Fly might not be your cup of sweet tea, but the pub hits a certain (and fast growing) demographic, dead center. Your suggestion that there's "no real information" in the...
