Re: "If you run into a grizzly...this might not work"

My strategy is always a paralyzer to the chode, with the one exception when there's a cub around. In that case, I follow this T-shirt's advice:

Re: Do stockies holdover?

Yeah, it's weird isn't it? I totally agree with you about this.

Re: Best all around rod

There are lots of good options at your price point, but don't forget the used market.

I scored a SF made 9' 2pc 5wt Scott G a few years ago for around $180, so a little 'bay sleuthing might be...

Re: Do stockies holdover?

Stocked trout are certainly capable of holding over if the watershed will maintain the necessary oxygen levels (i.e., temperature). Browns in particular are better at surviving heat spells. I'm...

Re: High-End Rod Appeal

I really like the high end stuff, but only when it's the previous generation of high end stuff.

I'm like one of Pavlov's dogs when I read the word "closeout" in connection with a fly rod or reel. ...

Re: How to use a steel

There are as many theories about how to sharpen a blade as there are types of blades or uses for blades.

Re: Hey. I started a Blog. Now what?

The most important thing is to post regularly. In time, like-minded individuals will find your blog. It may take longer than you think before that happens.

Re: 5wt To Handle Carp

In that situation, why not just point your rod at the fish and reel?

Yup! I almost caught a tandem bicycle, too.

Got off my duck for 2015

I had my first kid on October 2, last year. He's doing great; he's really good at being a baby, and being a father is awesome. I'd say that it's cut into my fishing time, but I have to admit that I...

Re: Bull trout Pics

Honest question:

Are there places in the US where it is allowed to target Bull Trout?

I thought that there were not, so taking pictures would be frowned upon. My understanding is that immediate...

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

I have no experience with the GVX line, but I'm sitting on the sidelines hoping that your concern is valid. Wouldn't it be amazing if a modern rod company made a graphite rod that behaved like a...

Re: Classic Sages?

Surely some Z-axis models will achieve "classic" status. I'd nominate the 9' 6wt and the 10' 4wt but recognize that others may have different opinions.

I also love my 7'6" 3wt ZXL. I don't know...

I'll throw the 7' 6" ZXL in the mix. Great rod.
