Thumbs up Re: Charlton

Very entertaining read on such a beautiful reel (Signature). They looked stout the first time I handled one at Anglers All in Denver in the early '90s. I agree with all that's been said about them...

Re: Do you take any special precautions when fishing during hunting season?

It's probably a good idea. We lost a local teenager who was bowhunting with his father to an out of state muzzleloader just a few weeks ago. That hunter just had to enter a plea in local court...

Re: What is in you vest/pack?

Xicaque,
It's amazing how much one accumulates in each pocket. I've tried to simplify and I just can be as much of a minimalist as I'd like. I'll keep 3 fly boxes, a spool keeper, weights, strike...

Re: The Broken Rod Poll; Edited, New Catagory added.

Re: how often do you keep your catch?

I've gone from 60% of the time to about 2% of the time in the case of trout. The last time I harvested my limit was for some diehard trout fans I liked. The last time I tasted native wild trout was...

Re: Week vacation with NO FISHING…..

I think that many things have changed in the last 40 years. We VR, MRSA and many, MANY more new superbugs. With many hospitals paranoid about infections, it's no wonder hospital staff are paranoid...

Re: What did you catch this weekend?

Re: Candle wax on your ferrules?

Sage and St. Croix recommend wax but Winston does not and even hinted they may not honor the warranty if you develop a break at the ferrule and they find wax. There is a bottled liquid compound that...

Re: Anyone try the new Air Lock strike indicators?

Latex balloons are very biodegradable and thus pose no long term effect on the environment. Eventually sunlight degrades them much like latex gloves and they disintegrate quickly to dust. This is...

Re: Winston or Orvis?

I wouldn't say junk, merely fishing preference. I bought an 8wt BIIX for my personal health reasons. It's served me well for redfish but though it's light, it is handicaped by the wind > 15 knots. ...

Re: Vintage Glass Fly Rod

Re: Off Topic - So you like to Mountain Bike?
