Re: Glue for wading shoe soles

I ordinarily use Shoe GOO but just re-glued felt soles on an old pair of Simms Guide boots. This time I went with Shoe GOO for Boots and Gloves. I almost opted for their E6000 adhesive (same company,...

Re: Zebra Mussels.... BAD NEWS!

I lived off of Lake Saint Clair in Michigan when the lake was overrun by zebra mussels. I kept a long stick in the water next to my boat to see how the zebra mussel population was doing. The number...

Re: Addendum to "The Phantom Punch..."

It sounds like you might have had coiling on an aneurysm up there. If so and if in the future they have to repack it, tell them you want the catheter. It's yours so take it with you. While you're...

Re: Durable Practice Fly?

Being in Florida I'll guess that you're using big chunks of yarn. When practicing with any amount of yarn one thing I do that seems to save the yarn and the fly line is flip the rod tip up after the...

Re: Head cement options?

I've settled on Clear Cure Goo Hydro for finishing most flies that don't need a head build up. It's absorbed into the tread and seems to hold quite well. I also have Hard as Nails (quick setting...

Re: Classic dry fly rods

In the above I'm not so sure you took into consideration the types of places people might use the smaller weight rods. Lately I rarely use under a three weight rod but when I use the dinky rods they...

Re: High-End Rod Appeal

Re: Well, that's one way to make my blood boil

It appears that OUR national parks (and more) are under worse attack by the critters in Washington DC. I'm ever thankful for the riches the generation before ours passed on to us. It's sad to say our...

Re: Missleading Fly Line Names - Ignor Them

S&S, I've not compared the Touch and standard Rio lines. I expect the Touch to have more sensitivity and to be better at distance because of the core.

Re: Question about maxima leader material

Unless Maxima has seen the light, this could be because Maxima measures out larger than its stated diameter. It seems to me any leader material would be stronger if allowed to be .001-2" oversized.

Re: casting noise

brook rookie, use sound to improve your cast. Keep things quiet until the last part of the stroke then try to whip it to get that sound. That's the 'speed up and stop' you may have or will hear of...

Re: Looking for help selecting a 6 or 7wt for the C.I. Exam

When you decide on a rod (I tested with an old Scott S3 7 weight) make sure it works well for you in both short and long casts. Thank goodness your testing now when most manufacturers have caught on...

Re: it fly fishing?

I think this entire Tenkara deal is mainly a case of masterful marketing. If it's fly fishing because you use a fly, there no reason it can't be called fly fishing using any kind of rod as long as a...

Thumbs up Re: Net bags?

I'm sold. It's off with the old mesh bag and on with the new. Thanks all.

Re: Flycraft ? Anyone see this ?

Has anyone else noticed that the leaning bar is sort of downplayed? I'm not sure I can find a picture of it on the site. Not being graceful, without good leaning support I'll have to fish from shore.
