WTB spare spool for Lamson Litespeed LS2 (previous model)

Title says it: I'd like to buy a spare spool for the previous model of the Litespeed LS2. I could also trade an LS1.5 spool for an LS2, if that would interest you.

Bass Pro gift cards at 20% discount

Hi guys,
I have two $100 gift cards from Bass Pro Shops that I decided to sell for $80 each. I need to raise some cash because BPS doesn't carry the "toy" that I'd like to buy.

Re: Line for a 3Wt.

I think a DT line would serve you better. Your fishing will probably be at short to mid-range; you don't need a running line behind the head. If you would of needed a rod to fish at long range...

Re: Fly tying saves money?

TS47 pretty much nailed it for me. Tying flies made me become a better fly fisherman.
I also enjoy giving away some of the producing flies and "teaching" others how to use them.

Re: Nymphing and weights

How about trying european style nymphing? No shots needed... The weight of the flies is all you use.
And you will probably catch more fish too....
Watch this to have a better idea:...

Re: Fly Vise Help

Happy B-Day!
When I started tying flies I was advised to buy a true rotary vise and use the rotary function. Don't skimp on your first vise, get a quality one that could serve your whole life.

Re: Prescription sunglasses

I don't like grey. Definitely amber for me, but I would even go to yellow or (I've heard) pink. Supposedly pinkish lenses give a great definition to under-water objects...

I concur to what the other guys said.
When I started tying, I was advised not to skimp on the vise and scissors, and make the vise a true rotary one. I am very happy I listened to the advice; I...

Re: How do you keep them straight?

I don't have too much trouble identifying my lines because I don't have similar lines (with exception of the lake lines). It is not difficult to make distinction between a 0DT and a 3DT, a 5DT, a...

Re: Carpool to Arkansas or Fryingpan?

Hi guys,
I never fished the Arkansas and wouldn't mind meeting some of the members of this forum. I could drive or share the cost of gas. I live just north of Denver.

I have to commend Silver on his deep analysis of nymphing: Indi vs no indi.I totally agree with him.
I would also like to add that by Indicator, most of the fly fishermen understand a suspension...

Re: Splitting Flex-Floss for legs and tails

Thanks PT,
I've seen the Senyo dub in a fly shop but they had only 2 bright colors. Those strands are mostly curled too; not as bad as when I split the flex-floss.
I already have f-f in the colors...

Splitting Flex-Floss for legs and tails

Hi fellow tiers,

I like using Flex-floss for legs on my bigger flies; the problem is that for the smaller flies I need to split the strand and after splitting it becomes curly. Do you know of a...

Re: Euro nymphing rod

You are probably fishing the Vrain and the Big T. (at least most of the time). A 4wt would be overkill for those waters. A 10ft 3wt would work nicely.
I have a 10ft 3wt and a 10 ft 2 wt...
