Simms Classic Guide Jacket

Anybody own one? How do you like it?

Yesterday, Sierra Trading Post had 40% off of their already low prices, on everything. I got the jacket for $130 with a $10 voucher I had, when it's still...

Re: Broken rod tip question

Ha! To be honest, It was a cold morning, spitting snow, I had some ice build up that I needed to get out of the guide, I reach up to to push it through and it just broke in my hand. Biggest fluke of...

Re: Do any of you fish in western NC/eastern Tennessee?

I've been fishing here my entire life. :)

I know just about every water there is to know is Western North Carolina.

Broken rod tip question

I have an older Scott Rod that I broke the very tip off yesterday, right at the last guide. It's an 8'6 3wt and I took it to local fly shop to see if they could handle the warranty for me. One of the...

Re: the F word

I think it's all part of the culture change in fly fishing. The competitive 'bro' culture with flat rimmed ball caps, skateboard style t-shirts, and just an overall aggressive approach to the sport....

Good purchase or not?

I broke down and finally bought one of the Redington CT rods in a 8'6 3wt they have for half off on Cabelas. I have a 3wt Scott V2 6'6 that I love but on some rivers I don't like how short it is. It...

How do you fish midges?

My entire life I have always fished a midge ridge by tying to the hook eye and the bend in the hook. The other day I used the dropper loop concept, and I hated it. That thing kept in a tangled mess. ...

Re: Catch and release argument

I agree, to each his own. I did get out of hunting for a year or 2 about 10 years ago but I found myself very worried about what I actually buy from the grocery stores these days. There is no...

Re: Catch and release argument

Saying you won't keep a fish based upon ones belief in not killing is completely different than not doing so from a conservation standpoint. If that is your stance, then say so. That is a completely...

Re: Catch and release argument

Sounds like it. Never had to deal with that nor have I been around it. Kind of glad in sorts.

I understand. Go with your gut, and I'll go with mine.

Re: Catch and release argument

I believe in Murphy's Law in that 'if it can happen, it will happen'. In other words, if you don't keep said fish, somebody or something else will. So don't believe for one second that if you don't...

Re: June Caption Competition-Sponsored by Allen Fly Fishing

Catching more zzzzzzz's leads to catching more fish. It's proven or at least I'll prove it today.

Re: Steal of a deal

I talked him down $10 prior to me knowing his reason. When he gave me the flies on his own accord and then told me his story, I slid him the $10. It still wasn't enough but it was all I brought.

Re: Steal of a deal

You're exactly right. It's rare but a great feeling. I hate it had to come at his expense but him and his wife seemed very content.

Steal of a deal

After breaking an older LL Bean rod I had, I was left looking for a new small stream rod. I happened to stumble upon an elderly gentleman in the local classifieds who had bought some fly fishing gear...

Re: Let The Battle Begin

I have been buying Bass Pro flouro and never had any issue with it. It's $8 for 30m spool which is almost half price of everyone else.

Re: It's not your dads Buick.

I try to steer clear of the 'fad' fly fishing group. You know the ones who look skateboarders on the water.

My old pickup, worn out denim shirt, and greasy old ball cap suit me just fine.

Re: Allen Fly Fishing CS issues?

This is why I love Allen. I bought an ATS rod last year and haven't put it down since. Love their customer support and their integrity, which is hard to come by.

Thanks for all you do Justin.

Davidson River, NC 5/9

She put up a good fight, no doubt about that. You never know how much you'll run/swim around a small river to gain position until you've hooked a hoss on a 6x tippet and you have to protect that...
