Re: Tippet Ring Knot

I agree. For the size of trout I chase, a simple Davy knot on both ends of the tippet works for me. :punk:

Re: New Dead Abel

IMHO they will offer further releases to encourage sales similar to that of collector plates, as a collector you can't just stop at one. You have to continue buying in order to complete the set....

Re: Abel Dancing Bears Grateful Dead Series Reels

Not sure what this well known manufacturer is trying to do with their image. :confused: This looks like something that you would hang over your grandson's crib for a mobile. Are they trying to appeal...

Re: skunked real bad need help

Good one guy! I have been skunked on a number of occasions but never regretted it so long as I was able to get out and enjoy nature. On the other hand, I have been "skunked" by the real thing and...

Re: Rod Love; the Fly Rod Picture Thread

Thanks Ard, this is a rod that will take some practice getting used to. Heavy in comparison to my 4 weight glass rods so I can't use any of my Lightweight series reels. The builder suggested a DT4F...

Re: Any Sage Light Line fans?

Hey catskilljohn,
I don't think that I am related in any way but you can reach out to me as well if you find an extra 389-3 LL. Mum would love you for it but I just can't pay $600.00 for it! :D

Re: The Shimano Beancounters Just Wrecked Loomis

Re: Floating Leadres and Tippet

Check out the Cutthroat Leader website. They have an excellent flottant for their furled leaders and if you are fishing a boo, don't use a silicone based product. Good thing is Mike also carries an...

Sage Rods
