Re: a good reel for under $50.00

There are a number of good, serviceable reels available for less than $50. You certainly wouldn't go wrong with a Medalist. I like the simplicity of the click and pawl reels and Pflueger made fine...

Line recommendations for TFO Pro 11' switch?

It sounds like this is a fairly popular switch rod, the 11' 5-weight TFO Professional. Which lines have you found to work well and how are you using it? I'm curious to learn the different ways this...

Re: magnifiers

I finally found a pair of over-the-counter reading glasses that work well for me, providing 1.75x magnification. I'll occasionally use a 3x magnifying glass mounted on a suitable base that I can...

Re: Scuds: Antenna and tail or not?

I've never used antennae and tails on my scud patterns and they've worked just fine. I've seen some beautiful patterns featuring them, but not locally.

Re: tying with out a vice

I think it's a beautiful job, but does have the random tweaked fibers so common to flies tied in this manner. As I said on that other forum, I couldn't match it WITH a vise! :thmbup: If you'd like...

Re: Looking for a 3wt, any advice?

Just posted the below response on bubbaman44's thread. Pardon the copy and paste, but it sounds as though it's relevant to your thread, too:

Re: Slow Water Streamer Flies?

Excellent advice from Jim. Just remember when you're tying that the dry example sitting in your vice will look completely different when wet. Ard's "Answer" offers one of the best examples of this...

Re: Which 5 wt. rod?

I really like the feel of Redington's Crosswater combo in the 9' 5-wt. I had the opportunity to cast one recently and was shocked by how well it worked, considering the price. I think the whole...

Re: how cold is too cold?

Sorry for my omission, but apply PAM/Carmex to the affected rod sections, too. It can get tricky when it comes time to separate your rod for the trip home, though.

Re: how cold is too cold?

There are several commercial products designed specifically for keeping your guides as close to ice-free as possible, but I can't think of the names of any of them. I've heard a number of...

Re: Found a new stream!

Noah, just let me know if you'd like to team up for an expedition. This is some of the best looking water I've seen in this area. Meant to call KYDFW for their input today, but finally stepped away...

Re: So, You want to tie your own leaders .. buy line, where?

Way more knots than I could stand to fish, but I'd love to see how one of those 7-knot leaders would turn over!

Found a new stream!

Well, new to me at least. One of our new forum members, bm3moose, guided me toward this jewel last week. Neither of us had ever fished it but he'd heard it was worth a look. I was pretty excited...

Re: LaCrosse Custom Rods 7' 2-wt review

I explored a new stream today and almost took the LaCrosse. At the last minute, I backed out and took my old 9' 5-wt all-arounder, as the wind was forecast to be in the 10-15 mph range. The stream...

Re: Hello There

I'm in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. I fish everything from moist ditches you can step across, up to the Ohio River that runs alongside the city and is almost a mile wide. I'm quite involved in Spey...

Re: Bluebird fly rod

What Pocono and Ard said. I think I've actually handled a "Bluebird" some time ago. On par with a Shakespeare, as I recall. Very fishable, but not quite a Hardy or T&T.

Re: New guy from Indiana

Count me in! I don't have the Katoom set up for serious ADV work, but it can work just fine for fishing duties. I've got some cockpit time on both the Yamaha WR250R and the Honda XR650L, as well as...

You should PM me the name of that S stream, Noah. I'm only aware of one possible nearby but have never fished it. I've often thought of hitting it but there always seems to be somewhere else that...
