Re: Fly-rod-in-the-mouth pictures?

I won't even pose with my cane rods in my mouth...I know where they've been. Of course, if ya'll are comfortable posing with a rod in your mouth for a picture, heck, who am I to judge?

Re: First Official Visit To My Local Fly Shop. Advice needed.

Buy the Abel nippers, and they'll tell you all you want to know. And for heaven's sake, if you're wearing your tweeds and carrying your pipe, make sure you're packing your cane rod, a plastic rod...

Re: Waders vs. Shorts

Re: Sage Fly Rod Cosmetics

I thought when I discovered this forum, that it might be a cut above many others. In most cases, it is in fact not. This thread is testament to that fact. Like so many other internet boards, it comes...

Re: Sage Fly Rod Cosmetics

They're decent enough "looking" rods, never handled one, so can't comment on anything else. They do have a cool looking logo, and while not personally "brand loyal" I guess I personally will stick to...

Re: Im stuck between....

I fish with a Scott S4 in a 9' 6 wt, and use it for the very purpose you intend, plus nymphing. It handles all I ask of it admirably. It loads easy, tracks smooth and recovers quickly. A few weeks...

Re: Greys Streamflex XF2 10' 5wt.

Like everyone else, I agree the Streamflex is near perfect for high stick nymphing, at least as far as the waters I fish these days. I handled one almost daily in the course of my work, and had fully...
