Re: Best Insect Repellent?

Thanks for the info silver creek on the thermacell. I can't imagine getting sick from it unless he was in an enclosed space or highly sensitive to it. We use out doors and are usually slowly wading...

Re: Best Insect Repellent?

Thermacell insect repellent device saved us in June on the AuSable Michigan from the hordes of mosquitoes. Best part about it is that it generates a vapor and does not get applied to the skin. We got...

Re: Spey Fly Line Head Lengths Defined

Is there a category for the double taper lines used on a two hander? I occasionally take one out to really punish myself when I get into bad habits.

Re: The Slow Demise of "Honor..."

Well, when your reputation or credentials is established only on the internet, I guess it is easy to be less than honorable. Anyone can just assume another identity without accountability. That is a...

Re: Getting the line out there

Given enough room I never false cast over a fish, I always try to false cast well off to the side and then change direction to cast/shoot line to the fish. With not enough backcast room, then I shake...

Re: A terrible practice day

My two handed casting comes and goes, just depends on the day. I don't know why, but I think it means my timing and anchor placement is off.

Re: First Guided trip on the Jefferson!

The guides at the Stonefly really have the Jefferson dialed in. Some of the best dryfly fishing I have ever experienced. Glad it produced for you!

Re: Favorite Movie

2001 Space Odyssey- because when I saw it in the theater I thought there would be a hotel in space by 2001.

Re: Parachutes

Sage one, are you talking about the parachute pattern effectiveness or the posted wing? If you are asking about the wing itself I don't think it makes too much difference but then again I have more...

Re: 5 Weight Bass Flies?

Fish a Wulff Ambush 5 wt line and you can throw some pretty big stuff (1/0 and 2) with that. It is a short heavy head with a pretty abrupt taper that loads your fly rod like a sinker loads a spinning...

Re: St Croix's standing in the fly fishing scheme of things

I believe that they aren't considered top tier mainly because of price. They make really good rods and in the past their warranty and service was pretty good. Friend of mine broke his Legend ultra 8...

Re: What fly did you catch your first trout on?

That was forty some years ago and I think it was kind of a hornberg type/mallard flank feather streamer.

Re: Maybe i spent too much on my 5wt?

I think that if you want a really fast rod that there aren't very many under $400.
Most of the rod companies have those rods as their premium priced rods even in the the lower priced companies....

Re: How to evaluate the risk of Smaller-sized Companies?

I would not let a lack of an unconditional warranty keep me from owning and fishing a rod that I like. I have broken a rod before and paid for the repair. I liked the rod and it was less than the...

Re: Found another rod I didn't even knew I had.

Fred, maybe this needs a lower grip installed for the trout spey you were looking for.

If you are casting BIG flies then also use a BIG piece of yarn and get it good and soaked to practice with. It will more closely match what you are trying to do or practice cast on the water (...
