Re: 4 and 6 weight, or just a 5?

If you have the budget, get the two rods. An 8'6" 4wt is a great rod and will be a much more fun rod for trout fishing small to medium stream than the 9' 5wt. A 6wt will be much better for nymph and...

Re: Fly Fishing Near Onaway, MI?

+1 ... Pigeon River Country!

I don't think that is too far away from Grayling and one of the most fabled trout streams East of the Mississippi. Stop at Harwick Pines state park if you go that...

Hi fratnik, welcome to the forum. You'll be here next week!

Re: Upper Soda Butte Creek Trout to be Eradicated

With respect, this missing the point entirely. They are not managing YNP for angler satisfaction, at least not in this case. It is a proposal based on science, calling it a "shotgun approach" is...

Re: Upper Soda Butte Creek Trout to be Eradicated

This is the rub, so to speak. And your argument is ignoring this important factor. Soda Butte is important spawning ground for the Lamar, which is in turn important to the Yellowstone. With fish...

Re: What did you catch this weekend?

I got to Rock Creek on Saturday, the Salmonflies were just starting, spotty but thick in the areas they were in. It rained. The big bugs didn't fly. I flogged away for about 5 hours and had numerous...

Re: Deconstructing a broken rod

Heat will soften the epoxy. A lighter flame will do it, but a heat gun on low works well. Since you don't have to worry about the blank I'd go with heat gun. Have a pliers handy. Evenly heat the...

Re: 2nd build disaster

You'll always know where the little flaws and are and things that didn't go just right on every rod you build. But most everyone else will never know.

Re: Arsenal is complete!

That's a nice start... :wavetowel

Re: I think we've seen the peak.

Ouch, PJ. I really wouldn't plan on it. The Smith get's low in normal years, it might be pretty bony even getting a canoe down it.

Even when you for recommendations from specific rod companies you get every rod that someone else likes.

Last thought; a lot of these high modulus, high end...

Re: 2nd build disaster

I can't quite envision this technique you are describing. The clothespin is clipped to the blank, but how are the spools attached to the clothespin? If you are just making trin bands then entire...

Re: 9'~ 7wt. Dedicated Streamer Rod....

The newest generation, high end rod I have is more than 10 years old, so I don't have any specific recommendations.

But...if you are partial to "medium" or mid-flexing rods why do you want a tip...

Re: I think we've seen the peak.

H2O; the saving grace has been this long cool spring, for sure, and the rain last week was wonderful. I'm staring out my window at 8000' foot peaks, there is snow but a whole lot of bare rock. ...

I think we've seen the peak.
