Re: Do you take any special precautions when fishing during hunting season?

It's probably a good idea. We lost a local teenager who was bowhunting with his father to an out of state muzzleloader just a few weeks ago. That hunter just had to enter a plea in local court...

Re: What is in you vest/pack?

Xicaque,
It's amazing how much one accumulates in each pocket. I've tried to simplify and I just can be as much of a minimalist as I'd like. I'll keep 3 fly boxes, a spool keeper, weights, strike...

Re: The Broken Rod Poll; Edited, New Catagory added.

I was hiking along a river and slid down a slippery slope and my rod hit the ground hard. I scratched my reel which irritated me but it was when I prepared to cast that I noted the top 3" sliding...

Re: how often do you keep your catch?

I've gone from 60% of the time to about 2% of the time in the case of trout. The last time I harvested my limit was for some diehard trout fans I liked. The last time I tasted native wild trout was...

Re: Week vacation with NO FISHING…..

I think that many things have changed in the last 40 years. We VR, MRSA and many, MANY more new superbugs. With many hospitals paranoid about infections, it's no wonder hospital staff are paranoid...

Re: What did you catch this weekend?

Being seriously deprived from a solid 18 months of busy work I hit the Eagle River for 3.5 days in the pre-runoff and lightning plagued Memorial Day weekend. Fishing was sparse but I managed to C&R...

Red face Re: Candle wax on your ferrules?

I stand corrected! I returned a graphite rod to Winston 6 years ago with a cracked female ferrule. The rep advised me NOT to use wax at that time and recommended this liquid formulation. His...

Re: Candle wax on your ferrules?

Sage and St. Croix recommend wax but Winston does not and even hinted they may not honor the warranty if you develop a break at the ferrule and they find wax. There is a bottled liquid compound that...

Re: Anyone try the new Air Lock strike indicators?

Latex balloons are very biodegradable and thus pose no long term effect on the environment. Eventually sunlight degrades them much like latex gloves and they disintegrate quickly to dust. This is...

Re: Winston or Orvis?

I wouldn't say junk, merely fishing preference. I bought an 8wt BIIX for my personal health reasons. It's served me well for redfish but though it's light, it is handicaped by the wind > 15 knots. ...

Re: Vintage Glass Fly Rod

Question Re: Vintage Glass Fly Rod

I was given a Garcia Conolon 2541 8ft 4 pc by my Father in law. He included some vintage dark green flyline he bought in 1970. I had to find and buy a Pflueger 1776 click/pawl reel which I'll need...

Re: Off Topic - So you like to Mountain Bike?

Re: Albright...

Yes, I think you're overreacting. I had to replace a section after a canoe accident and that wasn't too bad. BTW, I paid around $120 ea. for 2 A5s and have enjoyed both rods immensely before and...

Re: question on a rod weight fellas
