Re: Fly-fishing Simplicity

Good article. I have found myself pulling out the Tenkara rod more and more when I get a chance to go fishing.

Re: It's been a while...

Thanks, guys.

I have been thinking about my sister and her son a lot. She has an old fruit press that she wants to get rid of. I stopped by after work on Monday and could tell she was...

Re: NHL Playoffs

I respectfully disagree and I think people can find footage of all sort of things every player does. I can pull up dozens of videos that show various players going after Crosby's head after he had a...

Re: NHL Playoffs

Jim Rutherford--both a Red Wing and a Penguin and an all around nice guy, or so it seems. He wasn't the best goalie in the world and he made some questionable moves as GM here (ever hear of Mike...

Re: NHL Playoffs

Touche about the overtime goal. But I honestly don't understand why Crosby is hated so much. The kid has taken a few beatings in his career and I applaud him for sticking to it after his concussion....

Re: NHL Playoffs

Angle,

Why do you hate the Pens? Sure, I am a native Pittsburgher and I am slanted but, well, there is no team I really dislike in the NHL except, maybe the Caps and Flyers a little.

I find...

What he said. :o)


I am much like the OP in that I never seem to be able to get on the water but at least he gets yard practice in, which is better than me. Well, I do get to practice on a...

Re: R.I.P Casey Wise

I am very saddened to hear this. My condolences to his family. I, too, only knew Casey from this forum. I enjoyed his posts and he taught me a thing or three.

RIP, Casey. You will be missed....

Re: How do you make the transition?

Yep, you all are right.

It's just a funk I am in. I can handle "the change" (I hope). But what scares me is that there are severe mood swings even early on. I guess I am wondering if it gets...

How do you make the transition?

It has been a long time since I posted. It's not like I haven't been lurking; I just haven't anything to say...at least not about fishing. :)

I feel like I am living the song, "The Cat's In The...

Re: Do you like to fish alone?

I fish by myself almost all the time. I like the quiet and solitude. People drive me nuts all day long and it is so nice to be alone.

Re: NFL Playoff Thread 2016

I just saw this. They picked a Super Bowl Golden Team.

Like I said, I am a Steelers fan and it feels good to see them so well represented! Seven out of 26 players!! That is over 25% of the...

Well, I am a Steelers fan but I am happy the Patriots are going home. That said, I agree about Manning.

Re: A few observations from the Cabelas Fly Catalog.

International Angler is not really north of the city and is probably the closet place for you but it is still an hour away from Belle Vernon.

Re: Is fly casting in itself a category?

You summed it up perfectly, casterjohn! I feel the exact same way. Just casting a fly rod is stress relief in itself. I hear what others say that is isn't in the same category as actually fishing...

Re: A few observations from the Cabelas Fly Catalog.

I agree, horsehead. I don't have a lot of money to spend (at least not til the two kids have self-sustaining jobs). More to the point, I am not a discerning fly fisherman.

What I mean by that is...

Re: Free Hooks! - Allen Hooks

Wow! Learn something every day. And here I was thinking that the barb would introduce a new step. I can't wait to see the video. I have always wondered how hooks are manufactured.

Thanks!

Thanks, Justin. I have used your hooks in the past and think they are great. I have come to need some #14 dry hooks and you have the barbless ones! I really want to try those once.

Golf is one of the most frustrating activities I ever engage in. Well, that and bowling. If my golf score were my bowling score and vice versa, I would be a happy man!
