Re: The finlaist

I bought a rotary Danvise for $80. I think it is a good first vise but if you have the $, there are better out there.

Re: is this a good setup for the price?

I agree with you Darkknight.


McFly,

You will likely catch just as many fish with a kit. You mentioned being serious. The two items you need to be serious are the rod and the fly line. Get a...

Re: is this a good setup for the price?

I purchased a 6wt TFO Signature as my first rod and I really like it. I think it was a good choice for me at $100. My mistake was buying an expensive reel. I do like having nice things but I've...

Re: trout net and vest d ring question

I know it was designed to work on a vest, but I have it on my Kayak. I've also found that the magnet is strong enough to hold my net on a metal surface such as a dock railing, etc.

It comes with...

Re: Newbie Questions

Not sure what you are fishing for or what flies you are using but as a newb myself, I understand :) I was using 13-14' of leader and tippet. It was not pretty. Now I am using 8lb mono for a tippet...

Crappie flies

I've been fishing Lake Winnebago near Kansas City for crappie in the past couple of weeks. I was really tearing them up on chartreuse/white clousers and pink/white buggers.

Re: Leader Question

These are the tips that you don't get at the local mega mart. I think I know why I trashed my first leader within minmutes of trying my new rod - I was using a 9' leader with 3' of additional tippet....

Re: Weight question

I'm catching crappie in 1-3' of water right now but I have a trip planned to the Ozarks in mid may. They will have probably returned to deeper water by then and the sinking leader may be useful....

Re: Leader Question

What about keeping the first 4' of a used leader?

I am using a 7.5' leader now. When it becomes worn, I am going to cut the last few feet off and add 4' of 4 or 6 lb mono.

Weight question

Going to tie my first fly tonight!

I'm sure there is no simple answer to this but at what point does a fly become too heavy to easily cast and what exactly will be the problem? Tailing loop?

Re: Kayak's?

Are you talking about the outriggers? That's pretty cool!

Keep in mind though that you can get a pretty nice kayak for under $500.
