Re: Need advice on cold weather fly fishing gloves

Lots of good suggestions here.

I struggled with the glove issue for years, and finally ended up with a pair of Simms fingerless merino wool gloves. Those things are amazing. Warm, grippy, keep...

Re: A Few Pictures & Some Text;

Great story and equally great pictures Ard. For some reason I find that the ones that get away are the ones we remember the most.

And, to quote Homer Simpson, "He'll be back."

It must be nice...

Re: Addiction

My wife calls my fishing an "obsession". I think that's an ugly word. "Passion" is a better one.

As long as you can afford it, and get pleasure out of it, go for it.

But I warn you--hanging...

Re: The phone call you don't want to get.

Fred, please accept my condolences on the loss of your friend. Getting that phone call must have been a real blow. I'm sure he'd want you to remember him with a drink or three, some laughs, and...

Re: Sage accel reviews?

Thanks Rick. I'm certainly not going to run out and get an Accel, but I do find it interesting that Sage felt compelled to replace the VXP. As I said, I really love those rods.

Sage, more than...

Re: solunar calendars

I'm starting to wonder about solar and lunar cycles myself.

I was in Belize this past April fishing for bonefish. The fishing was good but not great (at least not as great as it was when I was...

Re: Sage accel reviews?

I see Midcurrent now has a review of the Accel.

Isn't the Accel supposed to be the new replacement for the VXP? At the risk of repeating what I said in the thread about the new Sage Salt, one...

Re: Best advice from fly forum members

I would be hard-pressed to come up with a single bit of "best" advice I've gotten from this forum. I can honestly say that I come away with something worthwhile every time I visit. Probably the...

Re: War of 1812. Another interesting read.

First off, let me apologize for sort of hijacking Fred's thread, and for possibly getting too political--not my intention at all.

King Joe, I totally agree with everything in your post. I was...

Re: essential books

There's a thread similar to this that was started a while back.

In that thread I recommended Tom McGuane's "The Longest Silence", one of the best books on fly fishing ever. And pretty much...

Re: War of 1812. Another interesting read.

Our deficit-obsessed federal government saw fit to spend about $28 million (Cdn $) on celebrating the anniversary of the War of 1812 a couple years back. Not sure it was worth spending that kind of...

Re: Sage SALT

I'm with von behr. The only thing I know about the Salt is that Xi3s are now on closeout and I got a great deal on one.

Of course, 5 or 6 years from now I'll probably pick up a Salt on closeout...

Fred, I know a dyslexic agnostic who lies awake at night and wonders if there's a dog.

Re: Able nipper, what kind of Zinger?

Just use a piece of paracord to make your own lanyard. You'll never lose your nippers unless your head comes off.

I can't wait until someone starts the Abel zinger thread.

Re: Too good a deal to pass up

I just picked up two Sage rods on closeout, an 8 wt. Xi3 and a 6 wt. VXP. Both were over 33% off and were just too good a deal to turn down. As I often say, the gods were screaming in my ears!

Re: Is it possible to enjoy fly fishing when you catch no fish?

I always say, there's a reason we call it "fishing" and not "catching".

There is a grain of truth to the old saying: a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

And, to paraphrase...
