I've been using a folding anchor on lakes for several years: 3 lb Galvanized Folding Kayak Anchor at Get:Outdoors (http://www.shopgetoutdoors.com/3-lb-folding-kayak-anchor.html)

Re: Solo canoe Fly fishing?

When my wife and I fish from a canoe, I get to play guide. I'm not sure, but don't guides get to fish once in a while during a trip, because I don't. :confused:
She sits in the bow, and doesn't see...

Re: Is This a Tick?

Hi Guys,
In the reading I did a few days ago, I found the Deer Tick is now called the Black Legged Tick (as Rip Tide mentioned). Seems that someone thought the little bugger was a new species 30...

Re: Solo canoe Fly fishing?

We eventually settled on behind the sofa. :D It's a David Yost design, and is deceptively stable and fast. The black color is carbon fiber, making the hull quite stiff (Kevlar alone is flexible)....

Re: Sage noobies

If nothing else, the Accel is a nice shade of green. Speaking of green, my 9' 5wt Z-Axis became my main rod again last year. That position had been occupied by the Sage 4wt ZXL, but I fish a local...

Re: Is This a Tick?

I should mention that only one flew away, and I flicked off the others. This was the sole clinger, and it kept scurrying around while I tried to take a pic. I saw them on the tops of rocks in the...

Re: Is This a Tick?

Hi Guys!
Well, one of them flew away, so flying beetle sounds right. I live in Southeast PA, and Lyme disease is rampant here. My father sent me for every type of blood work imaginable last week,...

Is This a Tick?

I'm way too tick ignorant, unless I see them sucking blood from someone's arm. I've been picking these of my waders, but I'm not going past any type of vegetation....???

Re: Casting long leaders -- tips

I tied the Borger version of the Harvey leader a few years ago, when Jason was using four sections. They did what was advertised, and I only used them on a few ocassions. I agree with you completely...

Re: Casting long leaders -- tips

If you want to save time, google up Gary Borger Harvey Style leaders. Borger ties them with just THREE sections. I've used them, and they work well.

Re: Orvis' new Superfine Glass rod - video

Good to be here. :)

I saw the rod being loaded into what appeared to be a long PVC tube, and wondered if they decided to go one piece. 4-PC rods just work better for me, especially since my car...

Re: Orvis' new Superfine Glass rod - video

Hi Larry! :)
Fishing was slow this year*, so I didn't have much to say. Even catching little the little ones was tough, so this rod might be nice if next year is the same as this one.

* The...

SA was very good about two lines I had problems with, but they were much less than a year old.

Re: I'm warming up to my Z-Axis...

A salesman at Cabelas strongly recommended the 905 Z-Axis when they first came out, and I bought one. It was true love at first, but then I became frustrated with casts beyond 40 feet. I realized...

Re: Sage Z-Axis question

It's been my experience with a 9' 5wt Z-Axis that the rod does not like to be pushed or rushed. My casting stroke is very compact with the Z-Axis, something I developed after finding the rod very...

Re: Joan Wulff's DVD?

I had it, and sold it here. Joan is an overhead caster, and I cast sidearm unless an overhead is the only thing that will work. There's not a lot on the DVD that you can't find on YouTube from Lefty...

Re: My first Abel question

I had a couple of Abel TR reels, and they were definitely more loud when on the rod. The rod is a hollow carbon cylinder, and I suppose that amplifies the sound of the reel. Drove me crazy sometimes,...

Re: Polorized glasses.Yes or NO?

They won't help you see better in murky water, so don't expect that. ;) They can't hurt, and after wearing cheapo clip-ons for years, I finally plunked down $450 for prescription polarized...

Re: 2013 5-Weight Shootout

I looked at the shoot-out, and think George is all over the place with his opinions. The Circa is too soft, but scored higher than the ONE which he also said was too soft...???? The praise he heaped...

I have a modesty award already, and have only myself to thank....LOL! Seriously, Swirlchaser's report deserves an award. That's great stuff.

Re: 2013 Swap #3 : Clouser Style Flys

NICE! I was going to do a test exactly like this, and will. ;) My fly catching the big one isn't surprising. There are some people I'd like to thank before accepting the award..... :D

Re: 2013 Swap #3 : Clouser Style Flys

Speaking of temperature, it's in the upper 70's here!

I forgot to thank John for putting this all together. You're one of the good ones. ;)
