Re: Vapen Red Wins Best Fly Rods at EFTTEX

I would like to see weight "shaven" in the top half of the rod, not at the handle.

Re: lifetime warranty rods / outfits?

I've been following the discussions on this thread and I feel I gotta throw in my $0.02.

Re: Cork handle filler falling out

Re: Rod Supplies by Roger

I am getting ready to build my first rod. I am waiting for the guides and then I'm gonna start putting it together. I almost bought the same blank (11' 3wt) but I chose to go for a 10' 3wt blank (by...

Re: Snow shoe vs. Deer/Elk

Nice one! I used something similar for the last two years, but I made the wing out of a bit of poly yarn, topped off with deer. Thanks!

Hi guys,

I ordered some snow shoe rabbit feet and I intend to replace the deer/elk on some of the dry flies (caddis) I tie, especially in the smaller sizes (#14,16,18?). Here are my questions:

Re: Finally got the new Sage One out today

Congratulations & enjoy your new toy!
You could overline it with a 4 wt WF line; it will work better for short line applications.

Re: Greys Streamflex XF2 10' 5wt.

Give it a reasonable shot if you have proper water and fish at close range. You will never know if you don't try it!

Re: Greys Streamflex XF2 10' 5wt.

Just my $.02...
I think it's too fast/stiff for czech-ing...
It is a great indicator nymphing rod, but in my opinion it is not a great Czech nymphing rod. I fished the 11ft #4 Streamflex and I felt...

Re: First fly rod

Sage One is not for beginners. A moderate or mod-fast would serve her better.

Re: Loop connection

No, i don't have issues with this variation of inserting the leader into the fly line. Whithlock's procedure pierces the fly line coating, creating a weak spot. The tearing will continue with...

Re: Caddidflies

Dean,

I don't have pretty patterns. I am of the belief that fly pattern is only 10% of the game, 90% is skill (I am not that "skillful", but I am working on it). If I need more than 6-7 minutes to...
