Re: High end reels.

I consider Solitude high end. Maybe not price wise but that's just fine! They appear unique yet traditional which is important to me. From a small independent company, which is the most important...

Re: Salt water catfish on the fly, a question of scent

53 years fishing here in s.w. Fl. and this is the first time I've ever heard of anyone actually targeting them! This is sort of like reading a story about alien abduction, its just that hard to...

Re: Counterfeit Orvis CFO's?.....

I actually sometimes find myself liking a retro looking Orvis pack, but then see the price and come to my senses and stick with William Joseph. Hating Orvis comes from hating shimano, for me. ...

Re: Counterfeit Orvis CFO's?.....

Never in any catalog have I ever seen a currently made orvis reel marked or claimed to be made anywhere but China.

You may have established where something is made has little to do with quality. ...

Re: Counterfeit Orvis CFO's?.....

Since Orvis reels are nothing more than china made anyway, could there be any real differences between real and counterfeit? Surely the contracted maker dumps look a likes into the worlds market...

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

I find my Nautilus FW is so light that it just can't balance a 9' rod well enough for me. If you decide on a 10' rod I would look elsewhere for sure. I have come to appreciate the slight heft of my...

Re: What ever happened to Sharkskin?

Wal-Mart is an evil corporation, and I'll pay more to not shop there.

Thats very true but their business mind set is shared by every other big box store that tries to copy them, including Bass...

Re: Loomis.....losing fans and market share?

No I hate Pure Fishing. Abu died just as Hardy will die very soon. I collect relic's of a bygone day. Relics from a family owned business not a conglomerate. Shimano=Wal-Mart in their strategy. ...

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

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

Aren't the 2 you mentioned hybrid boards? Not so hot for rivers. All the rage here on the flats until a snowbird flips you with their unmannerly high speed wake. My OK Drifter is an ancient...

Re: nautilus fwx 5/6 reel

Flygrain, what a great experience! I have had a FW7 for many years and it has handled many Snook, Reds, Jack and small Tarpon. It is still as smooth as new. It demands a light rod to balance well.

Re: warmwater pics

Re: Reels and spare spools

I don't like carrying more than one outfit. Perhaps when I'm on a boat it would be more feasible. To me spare spools are much more logical, not that I'm compulsive but a diehard minimalist.

Re: Port Charlotte/Venice?

Don't get to green, our fishing isn't what it used to be. Snook are in the bays and river mouth. You could find them in the intercoastal along the greenbelt park and the bridge just on Venice...
