Re: who keeps a flask in thier gear and whats in it?

I apologize if you thought this was about the question...I like the question. The tone of some of the responses is what I directed the "hammered" comment towards. I shouldn't have side-tracked the...

Re: who keeps a flask in thier gear and whats in it?

It has been Tito's Handmade Texas Vodka, but I'm thinking it's time to change over to Glenlivet 12. I take it to the mountains when we fish there. Never pull on it if I will be driving anywhere. ...

Re: Russian wife?

I've just had the "Zhanna is looking..." ad running down the side here at 4pm Eastern time. She must really want a life partner pretty bad to be hittin' up a bunch of fishing bums...;)

Re: Whats the deal with fibreglass?

On a less technical level, I see fishing different types of rods as being like dancing. No two girls dance the same, but there are darn few not worth dancing with. My favorite old glass rod is a...

Re: Whatcha listenin to?

I'm in awe. Clicking "Like" seems inadequate. She rips that thing up with a passion. Thanks so much for posting this up!

Re: Knowing what you know now......

Knowing what I know now, which in the area of high end gear is very little, I would build a 7' 3wt, a 9' 4-piece 5wt, and a 9' 4-piece 6wt. I'd build them on blanks that fit my budget, all IM7...

Re: Fun picture my wife took

That's a little girl who knows that she is more important to Daddy than those little feather things he so much likes to make. They are right...frame it and hang it over the bench.

Re: 2014 Fish Goals

Re: Lower Susquehanna Smallmouth Bass dying

Re: support your local fly shop!

I miss The Evening Rise in Lancaster as well. As far as I can tell, there are no fly shops left in Lancaster County. :( It makes it difficult as I am a person who likes to hold it and look at it...

Re: New to tying flies! Have a few questions.

A tip I would give is that when you are learning a pattern, don't shave down or discard all the ones that don't look great. They can still catch fish and panfish especially are not art critics. ...
