Re: New to tying flies! Have a few questions.

I can't really disagree with anything flytire posted, other than the bug infestation bit. That shouldn't be a problem. I will say this though. I am still learning. And frankly it seems silly to buy...

Re: Favorite wt rod.

I use a fast 4wt 8'6" JK Fisher as my go to trout rod with nymphs and dries, and a 9' 6wt Sage RPL for streamers when trout fishing. Both rods are maybe a bit too fast, so I bought a pair of...

Re: Partridge Pelt Stench

The smell is part of the charm. I have a boat load of dead animals and birds I got off ebay. There is a definite taxidermists funk to them. But hey. When you pull out a fox tail, partridge skin,...

Re: New to tying flies! Have a few questions.

All good advice above. As for materials, Ebay is your friend. Look under fly tying lot or lots. Here you are hitting estate sales. Grandpa died and folks want the weird dead animals out of the...

Re: Redington Rise keep or return?

You and me both. I paid forty for the pursuit on Ebay. Same as you, no returns. I have and absolutely love two Redington rods, they just built a clunker here. It happens. You pays your money and...

Re: Fly Fishing Apparel Questions

I buy shorts and pants that have mesh skivies built in or go commando. Why wear cotton undies under a nylon pant?

Re: Redington Rise keep or return?

Ditto on return. I have a Pursuit which is the earlier version. Its not awful, but it ain't great either. Go to Cabelas and buy a prestige premire or an LSi, both with Lamson drags for around fifty...

Re: June 2014 Visit to Miami/Keys

For peacocks and snake heads the canal along the Tamiami Trail, AKA Calle Ocho and the lakes right by the Miami airport are easy access. I've fished the canal but not the lakes. If you go to the keys...

Re: 2014 Fish Goals

You'll get there. Just start using the fly gear as your default outfit. Keep the spinning rod in the truck. Once you get used to it, the fish will come. If a mediocre caster and **** poor tier like...

Re: vice package recommendation

The peak has a good rep. You could do a whole lot worse. Look at renzetti, dynaking and Axis and Griffin. I have the Griffin Mongoose. If I had it to do over I might have gone Peak or Renzetti. I...

Re: February in Florida

Ask on the board before sending that rod back. Mine is just one opinion, and I'll warn you I tend to be biased towards lighter tackle. I only get out the heavy stuff if I have to. There are some very...

Re: February in Florida

Unless you have visions of permit or big tarpon dancing in your head, you would probably be happier with a fast 8 wt. If you can exchange it.. A ten is great for big fish or a knife fight with a...

Re: Help me spend some money

I have the 8'6" three weight and love it. But if you want a two weight hit the classifieds Craigthor is offering a heck of a deal on a nice 2 wt outfit, rod, reel and line.

I fish out of Naples/Everglades City all the time. In fact I am headed there in about three days. Bring both the three and the six weight. You will get plenty of use out of both.:D
