Re: Need Advice Planning a Trip to SW Montana

I would say with three full days and a plan to stay in Ennis that you might want to think about really just fishing the Madison those three days.

Other big rivers are a good distance away from...

Re: New Echo Classic Spey rod owner, time to pick a line.

There's nothing particularly "easy" about skagit casting compared to casting a scandi. If anything I think casting a scandi is easier.
There are subtle differences in all the different casting...

Re: More Dopes on Dope Harming Wildlife

That part's really easy.
You just load the full file and then you can set start and end points for a section you want.
The software should walk you through the process.
I've only done one little...

Re: Any made in the US companies match Orvis' warranty??

No and I was going to post that I've never received a new rod for any of the five or six times I've sent rods back.
They just replace the section with the issue.

Re: Show me your poppers!

Tpo, those are beautiful.

I'd almost be afraid to use them in the mid-west because you just know some little northern is going to cut them off after 10 casts.

Re: dh rods to bind or not to bind

I use wax, mostly.

If I know I'm not going to take the rod apart for many days I'll tape.

I've had rods come apart casting twice.
The first time required a trip back to the manufacturer and...

Re: Any made in the US companies match Orvis' warranty??

Well, since I seem to be the only one here who breaks a lot of rods I'll go on record as someone who really likes paying for the warranty.

I like knowing that if/when I break it I won't have to...

Re: Tell me a little about trout fishing where u are ?
