Re: Best 5wt for $150?

"The Best" would be very subjective to many folks. My subjective suggestion would be the Albright A5NS at $150 that's actually made in Korea. I'm on a quest to find the best 5wt for myself as well...

Re: Abel Hemostats

Re: Drying Boots ?

I got the PEETs as a present and I use them for all my shoes and boots-ski, wading, hunting, and even hiking boots that are wet. The boots are dry by morning.

Re: Lamson Velocity Reels

I have 2 for 3-4 wt and 5-6wt. They are excellent reels but mine were pre-alox. They have some marks but fish very well and handled some screaming trout runs into my backing several times on bigger...

Cool Re: I can see clearly now the rain is gone...

It's a state of mind for me working and living in SW Mississippi, on the blues trail for this high country drifter. I believe there was an older ski resort in Colorado named Purgatory. In the...

Thumbs up Re: Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Yikes, that looks pretty much what the other routes looked like. I saved some money skipping my annual stress test for this. Unfortunately my hiking boots both blew out their soles, I had to hike...

Re: Abel Hemostats

Re: RMNP fishing

I just love this park and though it's got big fish it humbles one quite often. I got some nice browns on the Big Thompson and I would have wandered further in for some of those greenback cutts but...

Re: Which New Wading Boot?

Re: Stripping Basket Idea;

I've a dedicated one for the salt where it's needed-BVKs I think. For smaller rivers the William Joseph does a competent job for casts under 70 ft and doubles as a belt that also tethers my net,...

Re: Abel Hemostats

Well actually yes, but then that's why they sell upwards of $300. I see Abel's products intended for those interested in quality for a lifetime of use.

I think I'll join you on the river. I'm visiting from out of town and my usual accommodations are full up on the Eagle River. Deckers would be almost as close but it may be a tad too warm this time...

Re: Lost and Found fly reel

Dave,
I got a call from a lady who described her friends reel to a tee reel and line color. I did see her the same day kayaking when I found it. It's on its way.
