Re: Sling Pack Recommendations

+1 on the Academy Magellan. How can you lose for that price? Especially if you are testing the concept of sling packs.

Re: What was your first fly rod? and why fly fishing?

I suppose many of you got your start by following in your fathers' footsteps. My dad was a good guy, but no sportsman. I took up hunting rabbits & birds in my late 20's and deer in my 30's. ...

Re: The Skeleton Fish Has Landed...Next Stop Islamorada!

Hey - we could start an NRX "fan club."

Re: Orvis Encounter

I like the Orvis 101 fly casting clinic idea. I just took it this weekend. It was pretty basic, but they wouldn't let me sign up for 201 until I took 101. Learned some good tips. AND...they...

Re: Lost a fly box

I left a box on the bank one day, returned & found it - luckily. Now I put a strip of neon pink tape on the front & back of every box.

Lesson learned.

I own a 10' 7 wt Pro II and like it & I'm fairly new at this game. (I already had an Orvis 5wt.) I considered a BVK 7wt, but the Pro II has more backbone -- for steelhead.
