Re: 1wt for general purpose

I've been trout fishing a 1 wt pretty much exclusively for the past 17 years. I am a self professed dry fly bigot, that's how I like to fish, so my rod is more than capable of delivering and fishing...

Re: Orvis C.F.O.

I've been fishing a British made CFO 1 on my Orvis 1 wt for the past 17 years and have nothing but good things to say about it. Of course, I'm not sure what changes may have been made by Orvis to...

Re: Two More Converts

I think you'll find you will at least have a shot at trout up to 15, maybe 16 inches. After that, the odds increase exponentially in the fishes favor.

That may not necessarily be all bad, there...

Two More Converts

Using a fixed-length line system seems to be a potentially popular option with a range of fly fishing folk. Folks new to fly fishing will be able to cast and fish their fly after only a few minutes...

Re: connecting tippet to level line?

Like Stan, I like to terminate my main line with a small perfection loop. Makes it easy to change leaders/tippets.

Re: Tenkara

Best advice I can give you, if catching larger fish in fast water is the goal - use a reel. Tenkara rods work extremely well for their intended purpose - to accurately and delicately present a fly....

Re: Needle Knot

Yep, I see what you are saying regarding needle/nail knots. That was my mistake or my ever failing memory, I can't remember which. Sorry about that.

In the distant past I did mess around with an...

Re: Needle Knot

I've always used needle knot (strike that, I always use a nail knot), and still do. Never had a problem or had one fail.

If you want to tie a needle (er, I mean nail) know, using one of these...

Re: Vintage heavier-duty reel?

I've caught countless salmon on my Cimmaron, it's never so much as hiccuped.
I don't think you will be disappointed.

Re: Say wot??? $89.95?

Actually that's pretty cheap seeing how the $14.99 line I use cost almost half as much as a $21 Eagle Claw Featherlight rod or the $25 Medalist reel I sometimes use.

Once I convince you it's...

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

Fred,

I was actually asking the OP to figure out what click mechanism he had in his reel.

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

There are a couple of different clicker arrangements used in Medalist reels, depending on the model. I'm assuming yours has a triangular check that is held in place with a leaf spring. If that's...

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

Fred,

I was thinking the exact same thing. I'd consider it an honor and a privledge to wear out a Medalist.

Kid,

I take it your reel model has a non-adjustable drag?

Sounds like you...

Re: Tenkara Czech Nymphing

You hit the nail on the head stressing the need for a stiffer rod. The design of many tenkara rods make them ill suited for deep fishing a weighted nymph. They are very good at what they are...

Best fly fishing tip I can give anyone - wind or no wind, if a dead drift isn't working; try something else.

Re: First aid kit

One thing I'd suggest is a pre-tied loop of line for fish hook removal. Granted you can probably jury rig something on the spot, but if you have a hook embedded in you, it's easier to have something...

Re: Is there that big of a difference? Old vs. New

So you've answered half your question.

Do you NEED to buy something new? NO

Now you just have to answer the second half of the question, do you WANT to buy something new?

So what exactly are the shortcomings of your current equipment that you would like to resolve with the purchase of newer stuff?

Re: First tenkara trip

Fixed length-line systems are a specialized tool. They are extremely good at doing what they were designed to do. However there certainly are situations where it's best to use another tool.

Re: First tenkara trip

At least for me, that's one of the big appeals fishing a fix-length line system - the effortless casting. I find sometimes when I'm really concentrating, the casting becomes automatic. I look at a...
