You can definitely fish one rod on any stream. I did it when I was first starting out. An older Cortland nine foot five weight. It is definitely advantageous to have a three weight (and a two, and a...

Re: Blacksmith Fork, UT

I never make it up there in the winter so I can't comment on it right now, but me and a friend fished it once in late summer and did well. This was before access was restored so we were very limited...

Re: So I won the caption contest, what happens now?

I won it a couple months back. He set me up a credit on his site under my email address.

Got some pretty sweet swag with that credit too. If not in the market for a rod or reel, seriously look at...

Re: New rod advice

I too am in Utah.

Of the two, I would definitely steer you toward the Imperial. It is a great rod and made in the USA.

The CT is a phenomenal casting rod as well, though the 9' 5wt is my...

Re: Roto Molded Cooler Review

I researched the RTIC brand when they started advertising. They are made in the same factories as Yeti from what I can gather, and have the same technology. Yeti is like any name brand; Coke,...

Re: immigrant reel invasion

I have a couple Asian reels and they are quality, especially reels from manufacturers like Sage, Allen, Cheeky, ETC. But I do think we are accepting too much from outside the US here. Our jobs are...

Re: Do we need expensive rod to fly fish with?

Do you need an expensive rod?

Yeah, maybe..

If you want it and have worked your butt off to have the things you have, then by all means, you do need it.

I have fished, owned, and sold, a...

Re: Echo Base vs Greys GS

Have you tried a different line on the Greys?

I have heard good reviews of that rod, and can't imagine that another beginner rod will give you that much more.

I would see if a better line...

Re: trout stalker

Everyone can give you an idea of what line they love, and that is a good starting point. But you may get that same line on the same rod and absolutely hate it.

Try to get to a shop and cast some...

Re: Dubbing tool

I have several different ones that I no longer use since getting the Stonfo Elite.

It is amazing. Costs a bit more but it truly does everything it claims.

Re: What fly line?

See if you can find a Scientific Anglers Air Cel. They have been severely overlooked in the last several years as they are "Old technology" but the fact is that they are great lines that have a...

Re: Decent inexpensive 3-4 wt reel?

A reel that truly surprised me is the Cabelas Wind River.

You can get them from Cabelas for under $20 and honestly, they could sell them for much more. I bought one as a cheap throw behind the...

Re: So, I don't have enough fly rods and I need some advice....

I will second the High Stick Drifter in the 10 foot 4 weight. I am by no means a euro expert, but it is something I turn to on occasion and it is very effective in the right situation.

Re: Warning Label - On a Fly Rod...Really?

Got a Blue Halo rod in the mail today that had one on it.

Pretty pathetic that people are so sue happy that we need such things.

But that is the world we live in.

Re: Fiberglass or Graphite?

There is no reason to pick either over the other for all situations.

But there are times when both shine where others they may not.

I have an Epic 686 that will lay out a ton of line into the...

Re: Keeping Mildew out of rod tube?

I always leave the tube open on the way home after a trip and when home I set the rod out overnight.

Never put it back wet and close it up. Not only can it mildew the tube, but it can also swell...
