Essential Saltwater Flies by Ed Jaworowski is a good one with SBS.

Re: Tanago

I was an expert at that. The difference is, I could catch those size bass on 5/0 jigs. It's why I quit fishing bass tournys.

Thanks for the tip! I have one of those that's been hanging in the garage for a couple years. Going to give it a try.

Re: Help with carry on rod tubes

I carry 2 tubes strapped together with velcro. United and American count it as one carry-on. Delta and SWA didn't.

I have a way to attach them to my regular roll-aboard so it looks like one, but...

Re: Furled leader -- bad attitude about them

Would a furled leader be acceptable for bones? Say an 8' with a 5' tippet?

Re: Fishing chicks?

In 1983 I was talking to a gal at a party. She said she was going fishing the next day and asked if I wanted to go with her. 31 years later we still fish together. A little differently for the...

Re: fish finder on a float tube ?

I had to think about this, but Mojo made a great point. A depthfinder like that will allow you to see the bottom contours and structure/cover that you'd normally have no clue about by just looking...

Re: need advice on bass tornament

MM81 gave some important tips. I tie in a weedguard with 10-12# mono. I also like to tie them to ride hook up. Easier to drag them thru the sticks and over the goo with less fouling. The "strike"...

Re: need advice on bass tornament

One of the better hard baits for cold water is a suspending rogue jerkbait. If perch are present, firetiger is a good pick. Twitch-twitch-pause. (10-20 seconds, repeat) Slow is the key.

Re: Rotary Vice Functionality

Is it necessary? No, not really.

Is it convenient? Yes.

My old Thompson A is a good vise. I can tie everything I need on it. I haven't used it since I got my Griffin rotary, though. I do a...

Re: Questions From a Beginner

Going from bait casters to fly rods is not the same as switching from spinning rods to casting reels. It would be a REAL GOOD idea to get some instruction. Someone to show you the basics before you...

Re: Bonefishing setup

I kind of typed fast on my reply. I was happy with the SA line. It DID work well. Not picking on it. Whatever line you decide on, spool up and practice with it. Normally you have a bunch piled...

Re: Bonefishing setup

I was using the SA Mastery Bonefish line until it got torn up on some coral. Worked well in hot weather, but I thought it was a bit stiff. I fish in Hawaii and it really never gets too hot there. ...

Re: Spotting bones over grass

In my experience, bones seem to spend their time searching for food rather than waiting for it to drift by. Generally though, they feed nose into the current. Where they go when they're off the...

Re: Spotting bones over grass

A lot of good info here. I'll toss in my own ideas. I have only fished for them in HI, but the bottom you fish sounds similar. The wind blows constantly there, so trying to sight fish can turn...

Re: Fly Fishing Apparel Questions

For boots, I've been wearing these for a couple years. Light, comfortable, and inexpensive. They've seen many miles on the hard flats of HI, as well as our OK mud ponds. They last.

Re: A Vise for Christmas

I have a Griffin. I tie from 8's to 2/0 stuff. My son does the trout thing and uses it for flies down into the 20's. Good vise.

Re: Need quality fly tying equipment

My suggestion is to just start out with a rotary vise. My first thought after getting mine was "Why didn't I get this stupid thing a long time ago?" And bobbins. I have lots of bobbins. I'm lazy....
