Re: Getting the line out there

You might try this:

Joe Humphreys - YouTube

This is a very efficient way to get your fly out there if you have little/no room for a backcast, low overhang, etc. I've been experimenting with...

Re: Overnight Float and Fish

Re: Does made in USA matter?


You're going to get lots of opinions here about rods and reels, so I'll leave most of that to everyone else. I will say that I do try to buy mostly American-made rods and reels, as...

Re: Want to buy or trade for a 9' 5 wt 4 piece rod

Maybe I'm just tired, but I don't understand the problem. You can still get a brand-new Redington CT for $99 from several retail outlets, which according to many of my fishing buddies, is a very...

Re: Fish Cat 4 Opinions Advice Denver Area

Don't know a lot about fishing in the DEN area, but I know a lot about the FishCat LCS 4 and the Deluxe LCS 4.

Re: Where to start? Hike In/ Out Fly fishing trip

Re: Lightweight Backpacking Advice?

Was wondering when someone would mention hammocks. Below the tree line I would much rather spend my trip in my hammock than in any tent. I've had mine for 6 years now, and honestly, if I could, I'd...

Re: all around trout rod
