Re: Pike on the Fly

I would take a few large gurglers. A few really flashy large flies along with a few bright flies such as firetiger and perch as stated above. This should get you into some pike. Large clousers will...

Re: Chasing Carp in Town.

The one thing that I have learned so far in my fishless carp ventures is that they don't like loud clicking reels. I had an Old SA reel made by Hardy which is basicly a click pawl reel with a fairly...

Re: First attempt for carp this year.

It has been said that one can not catch the silver carp on regular fishing gear but it does look like a silver. What did you catch it on if I may ask?:confused:

Re: New to fly tying

You don't say what kind of flies you will be tying. I am a minimalist in my tying and fishing. I have lived with one bobbin for 45 years but it is a must have. A good pair of scissors or two. One...

Re: Fly rod for a 13 year old

I have no idea as to what or where you will be fishing. But for a young man such as yourself I would recommend a glass rod. They will withstand much more abuse and ill handling than a graphite rod. I...

Re: 8wt Reel

Yes sir Mr. Sweet you are correct. I have not yet been exposed to any plastic that will work properly but that does not mean that they do not exist. Most plastics will absorb moisture and will...

Re: 8wt Reel

If you are on a budget don't over look a die cast aluminum reel. They are also machined and are more than capable of holding up to big fish. As stated above size, weight, and drag are the most...

Re: Fly fishing kayak or canoe

The Coosa is terrible in the wind and difficult to keep straight without a rudder. The heavier you are the longer yak you need. I have heard good things about the watercraft native as an all round...

Re: When do you like to fish poppers?

Hey BigJim, that is quite a collection of surface stuff. I thought I had a lot of floaters. You should be proud. I do have a couple of questions about the bombers. Do you use them for bass? What size...

Re: When do you like to fish poppers?

For bluegill in streams I always will try small poppers to start regardless of time of day or year. Anytime they are on the bed you can slay them. In some parts of the country the bed off and on all...
