Re: Doing a term paper on fly rods and the natural resources used in them

Quick update here:

Finished my first draft (20 pages including references). I'm looking for information on past retail prices of graphite fly rods. From 1974 to today. Every rod possible would be...

Re: Classic Trout Half Off

Re: Doing a term paper on fly rods and the natural resources used in them

To sort out any confusion: I would like to specify my topic and keep it as small as possible, and as modern as possible with an analysis of graphite fly rods only. Yes, obviously a book could be...

Doing a term paper on fly rods and the natural resources used in them

Re: Orvis or Cabelas - Equiptment and Warranty

I will agree with the above post.

I'm on my third RLS 5wt. Love the rod. First one broke after about a year of hard use (think 5/7 days a week). Snapped while double hauling for no reason. I was...

Re: Long time Fisherman...New to the Fly

I started with a 9ft 5wt Cabela's RLS, and I would definitely recommend it.

Like everyone else is saying, 6wt should give you some wiggle room in terms of how big your fly is. If you're into lake...

Re: Paddleboard Fly Fishing for bass or pike or any fish?

I think a paddleboard sounds just as useful as a kayak, easier to stand on as well. Maybe a little slower. In the flats though, I would definitely go with a paddleboard.

Re: Major Flooding in Michigan

I'm surprised the Huron River Drive didn't flood like it usually does. We haven't had that much rain, and the melt didn't blow it up as much as I expected.

Re: Soon I'll Go From This................

I see 9/10 days with lows higher than freezing. It means that winter should have gone away a long time ago.

Re: Spring

I'm in SE Michigan and everything is still frozen up. Usually by this time rivers are starting to heat up.

I think we're just going to jump from winter to summer.

Re: Best line for a Redington CT 3wt

I put the cheapest of the Allen lines on it, WF3, and it seems just dandy for dries and small streamers.

Re: Seriously, Where is Spring?

Michigan hasn't seen a lick either. I think it's going to be winter straight into summer.
