Re: Short rods for big flies?

More leverage while fighting fish to keep them out of the weeds. Easier to handle in a boat or kayak. Easier to land a monster while in a float tube or toon. Easier to bury the rod tip in the water...

Re: Is Spey/Switch for me?

For a switch rod that can handle steelhead you will not want to single hand cast it for more than a cast or two. Too much strain on the shoulder and elbow.

Re: Is Spey/Switch for me?

Anglers Roost 7/8 spey rod and an old Medalist reel would set you back maybe $200.

Coke is clearly superior. Anyone who prefers Pepsi is obviously a moron.

Re: Royal Wulff Ambush fly line

I have the 7wt. Don't get me wrong, the Ambush is probably my favorite line but its just not designed for mending. Very short and heavy head and a thin running line with hardly any rear taper. Still,...

Re: Underlining a rod

Underlining doesn't really fit the fishing I do. I'm usually trying to load the rod without much line out. When I do cast long its usually by shooting line and not by keeping a bunch of line in the...

Re: Royal Wulff Ambush fly line

Not the best line for indicator nymphing. Doesn't mend well.

Fly fishing and scotch, yes. Fly fishing and a nice cigar, sure. Fly fishing and LSD, never again!

Re: Good all around spey outfit. Beginner.

I would honestly go inexpensive and/or used for your first spey rod outfit. When I was a beginner, it took quite a while for me to become a proficient caster and there was no way I would have even...

Re: Rod Warranty

I've found that having no warranty is usually no big deal. Most of the rod manufacturers will sell you a rod section for less than $50. Even the manufacturer of a $700 spey rod was selling the tip...

Re: Life expectancy of monofilament?

Mechanical properties of nylon are negatively affected by acid, alkali, U.V., and O2 (time-temperature Arrhenius relationship). Of these factors, U.V. is probably the most commonly encountered...

The Anglers Roost I'm aware of operates as a web business (ARE or Anglers Roost Enterprises). They might also sell on ebay. While they are low cost blanks and rods they are generally regarded as high...

Re: Beulah Platinum Switch Line Recommendation

Rod power ratings in the spey/switch world are basically meaningless. One company's 7wt may pair with a 400gr head and another company's 7wt may pair with a 500gr head. Take the Beulah recommended...

Re: 6wt rod 8ft ish.

+1 for the vintage glass suggestion. The Fenwick FF806 is pretty fast (8', 6wt), or you could try a FF807 and underline it with a 6wt line. These can usually be had for $50 and often sell for more...

Re: Long Hike, Great Times

Those F18's ARE actually from TopGun (Miramar NAS) and I believe they use the Needles (those granite domes) as a visual reference for some of their drills.

Re: 9', #5 Rods - master of nothing....

I'd argue that most of the good natured discussions (ie arguements) on this board are mainly due to regional differences in the local fisheries. Someone who mainly throws dry flies to 8" brook trout...

Re: Thoughts on ideal rod length to fight fish?

I remember reading on a rod building sight that the way to make a rod stiffer was to paradoxically cut iches from the butt end. This could sometimes even push the rod into the next higher weight...

Re: Thoughts on ideal rod length to fight fish?

It occurs to me that this is probably a more relevant consideration for 2 handed rods since they vary widely in length and are commonly used to catch 10-20lb (and higher) fish in heavy current. I...

Thoughts on ideal rod length to fight fish?

I've heard both arguements: a short rod is better for fighting fish because it gives the fish less leverage. A short rod is worse because it gives the angler less leverage.

From an experience...

Re: On the idea that using UL fly rods demonstrates "expertise"

S&S: I've always heard the rod length leverage arguement with respect to the fish, not the angler. Interesting. I think I'll post a new thread so as not to derail this one.

Re: Online Movie: The Lost World of Mr. Hardy

Snag Films is legit. Like Crackle or a whole host of similar sites/apps.
