Re: Jewels of the Driftless

This sounds like a stream I fished last summer with a friend. He nearly blindfolded me before taking me to it as he was afraid I would tell others where it is. It was heaven with a dry fly.

Re: FS: Excellent 1950's Hardy LRH + Block Leather Case REDUCED

Re: Magic river ?

One of the issues here is fly fishing is a lot like Fight Club. The first rule of Fly Fishing is if you find a magic river you don't speak of the magic river's name.

Re: Question regarding oversize rod for smaller flies?

Re: Sunglasses

I use inexpensive Berkleys and have 0 issues with them. I've stepped on them and played ball with them (I dive a lot for the ball) and bike through the woods with them. No lense peel or frame crack.
