Re: Serious about streamers

You could choose a seven or an eight weight, but I'd err towards the eight. It will give you more options on payloads that you could throw. Also it will be versatile for a number of species (big...

Re: Trip to Sonoma County, CA

I don't fish the region, but my friends who fish there usually target resident black bass and migratory Striped Bass. From what I understand, salmon and steelhead fishing during the migratory months...

Re: R.I.P. Sport Chalet

If you want a line winder, I'm sure that you could buy one cheap from one of its locations.

Re: Streamer fly line recommendations?

Make a 20 to 24 foot head out of T-8. It will feel clunky, but you'll get some depth.

One of the best values on the market is the Lamson Liquid 3 pack. For the size 2 model, the kit comes with a reel plus two spare spools for $159.95. If you further your skillsets, you...

Re: What Did You Buy Today?

I bought some UV Gray Steve Farrar SF (Slinky Fiber) Flash Blend and some size 2/0 Umpqua U502 hooks. I need to tie up some Threadfin Shad colored (gray over white) synthetic Clouser Minnows.

Re: Help...what line?

Two plans of attack on this one.

Rio In Touch Salmo/Steelhead - If you want a long bellied line for the ultimate in line control and roll casting in big water, this is a good plan of attack. If...

Re: First Fly Rod

I'm with Fred on the spread being too wide for just with one rod.

I would lean towards an eight weight for the heavier rod just for the extra power when the wind comes up.

Nope. Someone has to run the shop.

My April opens up. I'll let...

Re: Sage SP ??

I owned the three piece version of that.


I used Scientific Angler's Mastery Trout WF4-F. Any standard weighted "trout" type taper should be fine. I can't make a comment about the modern "half...

Re: March trip to Northern California

If you are going to be fishing the Lower Yuba or Lower Feather, leave the 7 weight at home since it will be overkill.

The Lower Yuba is fishing kind of okay, but it is off color due to releases...

Re: Rio Steelhead line

Overhead casting and underhand casting were mentioned, so I will not go into that.

I have skimmed the replies and no one has mentioned line control for when the line is on the water.

Re: Rio Fly lines:Mainstream vs Grand

Rio premium lines have higher quality coatings that allow the line to float and shoot better. It also makes the line more durable. Mainstream lines lack this technology.
