Re: Old reel hard to seat on new Hardy rod

It is really frustrating to find a nice visual match only to find that the reel will not fit the seat. The Hardy ribbed reel feet are a bugger to fit several of my rods. Before you fire up you...

That Bean Pocket water s a nice reel for 99$. I have never liked the appearance of the Orvis Battenkill but for some people appearance does not matter. Okuma SLV is great for the price. Like the...

Re: Foam Fly Swap for 2014

Easy Migraine Hopper

Sadly these are named for a good reason. I tied a very simple fly because it's all I could do since the migraine has been so bad. It will catch fish for sure.

Re: Am I over thinking this?

If it pleases you then fish with it. That is all that matters. I sometimes fish with a Kineya reel on a Berkley fiberglass rod. Have fun!

Re: Fly tying bobbins.

I am fond of the S&M Bobbin. If I was to give away all of my other ones I would replace them with the S&M. It is so easy to adjust thread pressure and the grip in hand is just right.
