Re: New Mexico (southern) - Ruidoso area

Fireroad, thanks for the response. I'd much prefer Taos and along the NM/CO border - lots of good trout streams there, and prettier than San Juan - but my wife's only got four vacation days left and...

WayCool:cool:, thanks for the quick response.:bowdown: I too normally fish farther north in New Mexico, i.e. San Juan. However, this trip is a 'spouse-pleaser', so I'll have to make do with what's...

Re: Let's see your tying station

That's not for bait, is it?;)

Glad to Be Back!

Well, thanks to Ard for 'pinging' me to see how/where i was, but while I fell off the fly-fishing interest because of heavy work requirement, I'm back - and eager to be so. I see that Frank Whiton...

Re: Line Winder Question

Because if you don't know the exact amount of backing (remember, different types vary in diameter) to go with a specific fly line and reel spool, then to avoid hit-or-miss cutting you pretty much...

Thumbs down Re: Line Winder Question

The TensionMate website itself states that it is to be used for "spinner, side cast and bait cast" reels. No mention of fly fishing reels, which of course is the purpose of this Forum. Have you...

Re: Waders and boots

If we're talking about avoiding a dip in the river, a good wading staff should be at least as high on the list as the various non-slip boots we're talking about.

Re: Help with rotary vise decision.

Okay, I've got a Peak too and I love it; however, it is a bunch more bucks than a Danvise, so we're really talking apples and oranges here.

Re: spare spool vs. whole new reel

I'm probably the third 'candidate' for multiple spools per reel, because I know I've talked about them before. While I typically have a second reel for a given rod size, I will have at least two...

Re: Whats your vise?

I had (& loved) a DanVise. It is a terrific value, a full-featured true rotary for under $80, but as I'm currently pretty much restricted to tailwaters, the DanVise gets a bit cramped when tying...

Re: Water proof camera .. your suggestions?

I haven't been able to find anything out about the GoPro's dimensions and weight, but if it requires a waterproof enclosure as I've heard, then it's way too cumbersome for carrying while wading. Can...

Re: Tying Scissors

Another vote for Anvil Midge. I tie tailwater midges and nymphs #24-28, and these really do the trick.

Re: to use studs or not

I use Korkers, so it's no problem to change out the sole for one that works better in the conditions. Rubber for hiking, then usually felt with studs, EXCEPT when fishing boulder rivers; then just...

Re: Any casting differences between WF and DT lines?

Don't know if this is relevant to your situation (never cast a 10-wt.), but the DT would certainly be easier to roll cast. It would probably give you a more delicate presentation as well, but don't...

Thumbs up Re: Improved Synch knot or not

I have read that the clinch knot is actually stronger than the improved clinch knot in finer tippet. If I recall correctly, one reason offered for this is that the extra pass-through for the...

Re: Any tricks or surefire way to make sure line guides are straight?

I do, but primarily to make sure that my ferrules haven't loosened while casting (thereby hopefully avoiding ferrule female joint cracking). Easy to check guide alignment at the same time.

Re: Loop the Loop - which loop and why?

I'm surprised that Frank W. hasn't chimed in here with his (formerly, at least) preferred "Non-Slip Mono" knot (see FAQs, under Knots). While I'm no expert in this knot, I find it works great on...

Re: Do you still have the first fly fishing outfit you ever bought?

I still have my first fly rod and reel - Scientific Anglers System 5, bought new in the early 1970s. The rod is around an 8'6" fiberglass and the reel is a Hardy-made Marquis-equivalent. While I...

Question Re: SA's Sharkskin lines


Thanks for this. So you're thinking that a 7-weight Sharkskin steelhead taper would work better on a 6-weight ZG Helios 10' Tip Flex 9.5 for trout?

And also, BTW, Dennis, do you recall...
