Re: Hacking my way through hyperbole

Thanks, theBoz. Hey, is that a Dolphin Super Skiff in your avatar? That's my skiff, man....best ever made, in my oh-so-unbiased opinion. :icon_mrgr

Re: Sanibel Island, Ding Darling

Redfish and snook will hit many types of flies, from spun-deerhair monstrosities to subtle, almost dainty flies like a white DT. Study the tide charts since they will have a profound impact on your...

Re: Hacking my way through hyperbole

Note to self: buy or tie some Simrams. Thanks, Gary. I've been assembling a mess of flies based on advice I've picked up here and there—headlined by #2, 4 and 6 tan Gotchas. Oh, and that's a gorgeous...

Re: Hacking my way through hyperbole

Thanks for the replies, mr.fzx and sweetandsalt. I've decided to roll the dice with my 7 wt Echo Ion overlined with Rio 8 line, which essentially renders that (heavy) rod an 8 wt. I may pick up an 8...

Re: Hacking my way through hyperbole

I think I get it. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a new rod or reel purchase runs through it (the credit card machine).

Hacking my way through hyperbole

In keeping with my status as an annoying newb, I added the post below to two other sections of the site before realizing that there was a devoted saltwater forum. I'm sharp like that. Anyhoo, I'm...

Re: Snook in the flats... Rod/reel recs?

Re: Saltwater reel
