Re: Prescription sunglasses

I don't like grey. Definitely amber for me, but I would even go to yellow or (I've heard) pink. Supposedly pinkish lenses give a great definition to under-water objects...
I think I'd like a pair of...

Re: Entry level vise and tools

I concur to what the other guys said.
When I started tying, I was advised not to skimp on the vise and scissors, and make the vise a true rotary one. I am very happy I listened to the advice; I...

Re: How do you keep them straight?

I don't have too much trouble identifying my lines because I don't have similar lines (with exception of the lake lines). It is not difficult to make distinction between a 0DT and a 3DT, a 5DT, a...

Re: Carpool to Arkansas or Fryingpan?

Hi guys,
I never fished the Arkansas and wouldn't mind meeting some of the members of this forum. I could drive or share the cost of gas. I live just north of Denver.

Cheers,
Alex

Re: Nymphing - indicator or no?

I have to commend Silver on his deep analysis of nymphing: Indi vs no indi.I totally agree with him.
I would also like to add that by Indicator, most of the fly fishermen understand a suspension...

Re: Splitting Flex-Floss for legs and tails

Thanks PT,
I've seen the Senyo dub in a fly shop but they had only 2 bright colors. Those strands are mostly curled too; not as bad as when I split the flex-floss.
I already have f-f in the colors...

Splitting Flex-Floss for legs and tails

Hi fellow tiers,

I like using Flex-floss for legs on my bigger flies; the problem is that for the smaller flies I need to split the strand and after splitting it becomes curly. Do you know of a...

Re: Euro nymphing rod

Hi,
You are probably fishing the Vrain and the Big T. (at least most of the time). A 4wt would be overkill for those waters. A 10ft 3wt would work nicely.
I have a 10ft 3wt and a 10 ft 2 wt...

Re: Vapen Red Wins Best Fly Rods at EFTTEX

I would like to see weight "shaven" in the top half of the rod, not at the handle.
Anyhow, it's but ugly.... I won't spend my $$$ it.

Nice one! I used something similar for the last two years, but I made the wing out of a bit of poly yarn, topped off with deer. Thanks!

Re: Finally got the new Sage One out today

Congratulations & enjoy your new toy!
You could overline it with a 4 wt WF line; it will work better for short line applications.

Tight lines,
