Re: Tying tippet to leader

What knot are you guys using on your tippet rings? I started using tippet rings last fall using improved clinch knots and am wondering if a different knot would be better?

Re: private property along rivers

There's a lot of threads regarding private property and trespassing on the Ohio Game Fishing Forum. Most of them get pretty heated. http://www.mcrealestate.org/search/commonsearch.aspx?mode=address...

Re: So you caught a sucker/fallfish what do you do?

I caught my first sucker this spring while steelhead fishing. Nice size to her but didn't fight much. I threw her back, the steelhead were lining up behind her eating her spawn and my spawn fly.

Re: My First Original Fly

Very impressive. You should definitely send them out for testing to all of us so we can verify they catch fish.:)

Re: Teaching fly tying to my buddy.

Had to look that one up. From the pictures I found they must have similar lineage. Tucker is half Airedale and half Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. A gun dog breeder in Tennessee raises both for...

Teaching fly tying to my buddy.

He finds it fascinating. As soon as I open my tying cabinet he starts following me around. My other dog could care less, that's him napping in the background.

Re: What's the purpose of neoprene wading socks?

What cutthroat said and they do keep your feet warmer. Unless you specifically get a dry sock they will fill with water even without going over the top. But the water should warm to your body temp...

Re: Simms Nippers

I thought it was just me. Mine are also extremely dull. I've only used them maybe a dozen times and today couldn't cut off the knots at the eye of my flies. My 3 year old wally world nippers are...

Re: Virginia Beach Area in Mid-May….? Any thoughts?

+2 on Bubba's. I've never fly fished there but there should be plenty of places to hit. We caught more fish and different types just a mile or two off shore than I could keep track of. On the...

Re: Flies for fast river smallies

In fast clear water I mainly use anything that looks like a minnow or bait fish. White chenille or estaz, flashy material for buggers with bead heads or cones, not too heavy. Or un-weighted...

Re: Fly tying saves money?

I think I'm saving money. Yes, the vise and initial materials were fairly expensive but I can get dozens of flies out of a limited amount of materials. The flies would have cost me on average $3.00...

Re: Secluded places in western ohio or nearby

Re: Used Winston sellers/buyers beware

That brings back memories of my senior year in college. Our star Canadian hockey player slipped on the ice outside his dorm, broke his leg and missed the entire season.:(
