Re: Casting fatigue question

Try a shorter rod. An 8' 8wt is much easier to cast all day than a 9' 8wt.

Re: How can I tell if an old line is floating or intermediate?

If it doesn't float, it's an intermediate line.

Stating the bleeding obvious, but geez, it seems simple to me. Regardless of what it was sold as, if it sinks now .

That says to me that many...

Re: Demon line!

This curse has been visited upon me a few times now. I don't know who I taunted in a previous life, but I feel your pain.

Since I'm an "old hand" at it now, I can offer a technique that works....

Re: What's a substitute for Hy-Flote Leader Paste??

Do you think the dog might have taken a fly if you landed it nicely? They put up quite a fight on a 4wt. The Popovic Tennis ball fly is the go-to fly round here ...

Thanks.

The exposure was made over a 10 minute timespan and it was f8 on large format film.

Re: Tfo mini mag 6-8

I've got both Mini Mags and love them to bits. Love 'em so much, I just bought a second 8-10wt version.

The 6-8 is really an 8wt or 9wt rod though. The sub-title on the label says 200 - 300gn, and...

Re: Why do you fly fish ?

Because I find it more challenging than any other form of fishing, and therefore, more rewarding when I land one.

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

N-1, where N = the number of reels I want.

M+15, where M = the number of reels my wife thinks I have.

If you count the two that showed up in the post today, it's 17, but you really shouldn't...

Re: Reel Idea...

A Solitude 4 would also fit the bill, but maybe taking it all the way to a 9 might be tough. Solitude have a "mid arbor" and a "large arbor" spool for their reels.

I've got a Solitude 5, which is...

Too cold for me, but I love that fact that you're out there and doing it.
