Re: Question for those with the Patagonia sling pack

I glued a few pieces of velcro to the outside of the small pocket and just took the foam patch that is inside the small pocket and stuck it on the outside. It's been working for me the last 2 years....

Re: Dear God, the NE tiers of States are about to get pounded with more snow.

Snow levels in Madison haven't been too bad this year--just bloody cold. We average about 50" or so most winters; but a few years back it started in early December and never stopped snowing. Every...

Re: What ever happened to Sharkskin?

I must have bought a bag from the same guy. Great quality and a lot of different types of furs. Having the names on the back of each piece is very handy.

Re: Selecting a kayak paddle

Trouter

If you ever get up to WI to fish the Driftless you might want to take a trip to Rutabaga in Madison. Great kayak/canoe place with very knowledgable people and an extensive selection of...

Re: Techniques for very narrow creeks

Oh, no, another fly rod? Well, if that is what it takes, that's what I'll have to do :) .

Re: Techniques for very narrow creeks

The knee pads idea sounds good.

I started this thread because this is the type of challenge that got me interested in fly fishing to begin with. I think I've got enough ideas to just get out and...

Re: Techniques for very narrow creeks

yeah, this looks a lot like what I'm talking about.

I appreciate the pointers. I don't have any problems trying lot of different ideas--floating flies downstream (thanks for the pointer on...

Techniques for very narrow creeks

I was out yesterday and came on a creek that I will be going back to. My difficulty was in trying to figure out the best approach to fishing this water. It is a meadow creek-nice structure, but very...

Re: Kayak fishers, I'd like your opinion.

I'm using the WS Commander 120. Very stable, clutter free in front. The seat can be slid under the middle cross structure for either standing, or sitting on what is referred to as the "Captain's...

Re: This!

I lived for 4 years in Northern BC--unfortunately, this was before I fell in love with fly fishing. Lived close to a river very much like those shown.

Especially love the diy rod fix at the end....

Re: Good day today...new toys and gear

I've been using sling packs for the last 3-4 years. Started with the original Orvis (can't remember the name). Liked it, but it was really small. Moved to the Stealth Atom last year and love it. One...

Re: Fiberglass rods

Another great Fenwick is an FF75 (7.5' 5wt). Ignore some of the outrageous prices for Fenwicks on *bay. There are some people that think their old rods are made of gold. On the Fiberglass Flyrodder...

Re: What I've gotten for free from this forum

I'll agree with all of the above. I'm still relatively new to fly fishing (well, any kind of fishing), so I find I read more than I post. But people have always been generous in their replies to my...

Re: Another Method of Fishing (or not)!

I spent some time in NE British Columbia back in the '80s. Part of that time was living on the Alaska Highway in the middle of nowhere. A few of the locals used to occasionally fish with "C-I-L...

Re: Glass...Performance or Nostalgia?

I've only been fly fishing (actually, any fishing) for about 3 years. My first rod was graphite--because that's what you buy when you're new and really don't know anything about what it really feels...

Re: Wristwatches What You Wear And Why

Seems like I'm in good company with those that love watches. I've had a few over the years but currently have two that I alternate.

My wife bought me a Raymond Weil Parsifal for our wedding (I...

Re: Got pictures of your packs?

Add another one for the Stealth Atom (Patagonia). I really like size and the way the pockets are divided. I did make one modification. It comes with a foam patch inside the small pocket for sticking...

Re: Who all got the $100 gift certificate from J. Stockard?

I had the same feeling. Then I thought it might be a scam of some sort. Then I got the follow up e-mail. Oh well.

Re: Besides Fly fishing, What do you like to do?

I'm a self-employed artist, so that takes up a lot of my time. I also take care of running the house (my wife's job takes up a lot of time and energy). I've learned to really enjoy cooking and...

Re: Fly shops in the Driftless Region?

edit: I also should add that On The Creek fly shop in Cross Plains, WI (outside of Madison) is also a nice little shop. Plus, it sits right on a trout stream. Literally your one stop shop. :)[/QUOTE]...

Re: Bamboo Rods! Are they worth it?

The "old" versus "new" technology seems to come up in almost every pursuit. I build custom furniture. I use old tech (handplanes from the 1800's) and new tech (planer, jointer, table saw, etc.) Is...

Re: Fish alone or with friends?

Yeah, I've also come to that realization. This is my 4th year at it. Good thing my wife doesn't go into the basement very often--she probably thinks I have fewer rods than I really do. Although, most...

Re: Fish alone or with friends?

I came to fishing just a few years ago in my early 50's. I've always been more of a loner than a joiner, so I fish alone. Actually, I only know one other person that fishes more than once or twice a...
