Re: Rio outbound freshwater floating vs sinking.

I was going to reply yesterday but I thought my answer would be too candid.
Bottom line, those are two very different lines that require you to change your casting stroke and timing. I use an 8wt WF...

Re: The Sacramento delta compared to the Chesapeake

Hi Mike, My perspective is very simple. Out west you divert water south to an arid climate that is highly dependent on water for economic reasons. Here in the east we don't have that issue. From...

Re: A rod for Shenandoah National Park Brook Trout

I fish SNP a bit and would encourage a 7'6" 3wt. There's a lot of brush and a shorter rod will help a lot. I've used an 8'6" 4wt up there and it can get pretty frustrating with all the bush snags. It...

Re: Tying a bass leader

Well I tied my first bass leaders and they performed very well. I followed the ACA formulas using Maxima Clear and tapered down from 30lb to 10lb. Leaders were between 6'9" and 7'6" length. I'm still...

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

Try the VCFA fly club guys. They can help. Lots of resources on their homepage. I used to fish Lynnhaven inlet with a regular rod but I wouldn't hesitate to use a fly rod. I'd go with an 8wt and...

Great input. I fish mainly around the Potomac down by Quantico with bass plugs 2-6 and streamers a little smaller. I normally use an 8wt Rio WF bass line with a pretty short head. It can rocket a...
