Re: Stoneflies

I'm sure that fly will catch fish, but plastic ready made bug parts are going over the line for me, to each his own though

Re: Sinking line extensions?

I have used them in the past. They do the job but you give up a lot in feel and control Vs a traditional sink tip. I thought they fished ok till I purchased a true sink tip in 15' and 24' and now I...

Re: Buy from Orvis

The only thing Orvis I'll ever buy is the Super Strong Mono Tippet and I do like their Hydros Fly lines. As far as the other stuff they can sell it to someone else at their "Life Style" stores
