Re: So, tell me about the pitfalls and stumbling blocks of flyfishing

Floating vegetation mats that appear to be the bottom. Thought I was stepping from the bank down into 6" of fast water, turned out to be 2-3'. Lost my favorite sunglasses and got a big gash on my...

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

What he said. At least for the last several years of the Winston Forum the term was applied to the BiiT 8'6" 4weight.

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

I hesitated to post this since I have not experience with either rod in 8'6" length so take this for what it's worth.

I own both rods in 8' 4 weight. I think the GVX has a bit more backbone and...

Re: Sage One: very fussy going back in the tube

Both ONE and Circa have the smaller diameter tubes, at least in the lower weights. I don't think it was an oversight or a cost cutting measure. If I remember correctly it was a marketing thing when...

Re: What if?

#14 hare's ear soft hackle. Grease it and fish in the film, natural and fish it a little deeper or add some weight and get it to the bottom.

Re: Just good to get out

Thanks, I do like that rod/reel setup on these small creeks.

Those particular fish are right back where they were yesterday after about 30 seconds out of the water for quick pic and I'm sure they...

Just good to get out

Got out for my first fishing of 2015. I knew it wasn't going to be great but based on the 10 day forecast I also knew it was probably going to be the best chance for the month. Yesterday and today...

Re: Sage Circa for rod #2?

I have the 486 One and 479 Circa and think they compliment each other well. Since you have the 590 I would guess if you dropped to a 3wt you might want something in the middle:) BTW I recently...

I wouldn't call those small hooks so I'm out of ideas as to what the problem could be.

Re: Dyna King Trekker. Hook slipping.

How thin of hooks are slipping? I don't tie on a Dyna King but iirc the grooves are for large and medium hooks, smaller hooks go ahead of the grooves??? could be way off, maybe someone that ties on...

Re: Leader Question

Yes, they are reusable. They are made of the same or similar stuff as old fashion mono fishing line on a spinning reel. The design is different though. For example a 9' 5X leader will be somewhere...

I have a minimalist travel kit. I mostly use the travel tying kit for killing time in hotel rooms when on non-fishing trips. It is always packed so I can just grab it on the way out the door.

Re: Anyone tried the Regal imitation?

Absolutely go with the real deal since that is specifically what he asked for.
