Wink Re: Duck, Duck, Goose

They're Canada Geese, unless of course they're actual residents of Canada
Then I guess you could refer to them as Canadians

Re: How long does it take from your home to the water?

I have a wild brook trout brook across the street from my house but there's also 2 stocked rivers and 2 stocked lakes here in town.
In fact I once figured that there were 22 fishable lakes, ponds,...

Re: St Croix's standing in the fly fishing scheme of things

In '95 I bought a Pro-Graphite 9wt when my go-to saltwater rod broke just before a trip. That rod could throw a full line without breaking a sweat.
It had a little tip wobble, but it was worth...

Re: Leader question...

I wouldn't go with a 10' leader at all.
While I might use a 12' leader for flats fishing, 90% of the time I use an 8' one. And as short as 3'-4' for kayak trolling with a sinking line.

Re: Canoe vs Kayak vs Pontoon

My elderly cousin had an old one until recently. She sold it because it "was too heavy for her to handle by herself"
She's in her 80's and bought a canoe to replace it. :rolleyes: What great boat...

Re: Canoe vs Kayak vs Pontoon

That's very true.
Not that I frequent places where "everyone else" fishes, but I have never, ever even seen someone fishing from a pontoon and you rarely see a float tube either.

Re: Leader question...

I use a 3 part tapered leader because it turns the flies over better, but I know plenty of people who just use straight 20# mono.
One guy that I fish with uses straight 30# mono and purposely ties...

Re: Daytime stripers south of Boston

Finding daytime stripers from shore in the summer is rare.
They do feed in the surf on worms and crabs but they are few and far between and you'd need to sight fish for them rather than blind cast....

Re: Underlining a rod

Are you guys talking about casting or fishing ?

I have one rod that I always underline, but only because it works better that way.

When I'm fishing at a distance I'm almost always using large...

Re: Does everybody have that "one" fly that never seems to let you down?

For me, if a fly is working *too* well, I'll often take it off and try something else. Just to see if it's the fly or the circumstance.
An exception would be with bluefish. They really tear flies...

Re: Pflueger Purist Fly Reel

When you remove those 2 screws be very careful. There's a spring and pawl behind the ratchet that has a mind of it's own.
Oil that spring before putting everything back together

Fish don't know what fly line is, but they do recognize that it not part of their natural world.
Normally you're not showing your line to a fish that you're targeting so it hardly matters whether...

Re: Pflueger Purist Fly Reel

No.
The 2 smaller sizes, the 1492 and the 1492 1/2 can't be switched without major surgery. It's more involve than most people would consider worthwhile.
Those are the reels with the pawl and...

Re: Wader fitment

I've gotten all my waders from Cabelas for better than 25 years
Never once have I had an issue and that's with 6, maybe 7 pairs.
I have no problem recommending Cabelas waders to anyone.

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

Fred, Most Medalists have the adjustable brake drag
The 1492 and the 1492 1/2 models have just the pawl and spring to slow the spool.
Those two are also right hand wind only .

When I bought my last pair of waders, I knew that they were going to have to be "stouts".

Re: What's the good and bad of a Cortland Peach DT6F?

I have a few of the peach lines including a DT6. They're very supple and cast really well on my slower action fiberglass and cane rods. You'll find that the tip will sink rather easily but that never...
