Re: Rio Steelhead line

Overhead casting and underhand casting were mentioned, so I will not go into that.

I have skimmed the replies and no one has mentioned line control for when the line is on the water.

The longer...

Re: Rio Fly lines:Mainstream vs Grand

Rio premium lines have higher quality coatings that allow the line to float and shoot better. It also makes the line more durable. Mainstream lines lack this technology.

And yes. The technology...

Re: Reel choice

I just looked up the specs on the reel. You are right about it being rated for 7 to 9 weight lines. However it is nearly 8 ounces, so the weight may be there for the rod. For backing, you may need...

Re: Building A Quiver: Step-2

I may be reading between the lines, but it seems that you really want to get yourself a creeking rig. If you want to do that, make the commitment and do it right from the onset. Buy the rod and...

Re: Reel choice

Mass is part of the equation. It should balance well to your liking.

Another is line capacity. Spey lines take a lot of space on a spool. If you are going to go with a head setup, you will need...

Re: Hot Creek/Owens River area questions

Looks good. However you might be able to go lighter on the rod if you choose to do so.

I think that Mikel and Planet Trout would be able to give you a more detailed response. I have never fished...

Re: Need help with my striper setup.

Hi Colin,
I'm not sure where you are at, but here on the West Coast, more striper fishermen are preferring to use the TFO Mangrove over the BVK. The forum has covered the topic fairly well, so the...

Re: Gurglers for trout

A Pyramid Lake Tadpole is a Gurgler with a marabou tail instead of a deer hair tail. However the tadpoles are fished subsurfacely with sinking lines.

Re: Abel reel quest

If I recall correctly, the Big 3S was renamed Super 7 Standard Arbor. You may want to expand your search going that route.

Re: Thoughts on heavier rod

Ooooohhhhh... You're building a quiver!!!

A nine foot six weight would be a good jump. It should have enough umph to throw the payloads associated with trout streamer and SMB fishing. Yet it...

Re: Rod choice

The way that rods are being made today, it seems that modern seven weight Spey rod is replacing the eight weight. Nano resin technology and better fiber alignment is making for lighter rods that can...

Re: Rod choice

Just wondering. Do you really need an eight weight Spey? What kind of fish do you intend to target?

Re: First Bonefish Trip Fly Rod and Reel Suggestions

I have fished both the TFO Mangrove and the BVK in the eight weight configuration for Striped Bass on the same day. If you are looking for a casting stick, go with the BVK. It is very accurate from...

Re: line/reel suggestions for Scott F2

Since you have a Colorado made rod, why don't you get a Colorado made reel? Ross has the reissue of the Gunnison. Look at the G1 model.

That rod casts the Scientific Anglers Mastery Trout in the...

Re: Thoughts on leader

I have never been a fan of those little barbed eyelets. A strong enough fish will pull it out of the line.

You should tie a foot to foot and a half long piece of .024" (about 30 pound...

Re: TFO BVK 6wt fly line suggestions

To overline or not to overline. That is the question.

In your situation, the reason to overline is to load your rod more to throw out larger than average flies in weight or bulk not associated...

Re: Line weight

Line up the rods, and cast them. Whatever line weight feels right is what you should use.

You could use your own lines, or go to a fly shop that has demo reels.
