Re: Superbowl 50 Pick and Tell Thread;

I agree Ard. I'll take a VET in a big game when I have a choice, but if it ain't working the Broncos have an option. If the Broncos get down more than seven points due to a lack of offense it...

Re: Galvin Brookie: What are your thoughts?

It's not really what I would call a drag. More of an over run protection when stripping line. Adjusted mine once a few years and called it good. Very nice reel for a light rig. Beautifully...

Re: Age of folks on the forum

I am 53. Unfortunately my back feels like 83 this entire winter. I took up fly fishing late. This is season three coming up. Spin fished all my life.

Re: NFL Playoff Thread 2016

You really think over padded is harming the game? I admit I used to enjoy watching Dick Butkus and Jack Lambert hit guys real hard. I remember Bradshaw getting pile drived once and I thought they...

Re: Someone trying to tell me something?

Hotels swaying 3-4ft would be way more than enough quake experience for me. :eek: Most all of us have our own local natural calamities but the inability to predict an earthquake puts it on a special...

Re: Someone trying to tell me something?

Any significant damage anywhere ptarmigan? Ground open up anywhere or was it too deep? I assume all modern buildings are designed to withstand quakes around 7+ without issue? I've never...

Re: NFL Playoff Thread 2016

They might be able to keep up with the Cardinal offense but we'll never know. :)

Broncos defense will show up and give them a chance against any team IMO. Manning will have to reach deep for...

Re: NFL Playoff Thread 2016

Patriots are tough as always. Brady is an incredible QB when he has a few healthy receivers. I've never seen him under pressure like today and that made him average like it would anyone QB in the...

Re: NFL Playoff Thread 2016

How you like that Bronco fans? :thumbsup:

I am pleased Peyton can finish it like this. Win or lose in the Superbowl he's going out like a champ and class act that he is.

Re: Pike fly pattern with Rabbit Stripes

Re: How Often Do You Tie?

It's a winter hobby for me, and I have slowed way down this year. First few years I was motivated to learn all the techniques I could, whether it was likely I would actually ever use the flies. I...

Re: How cold does it get in the Midwest?

I think there may have been a time when the windchill numbers would cause people to take reasonable precautions like dressing properly in the event their car broke down or got stuck. Everybody...

Re: How cold does it get in the Midwest?

I had not done that since I was a child so I had to test the theory. Yup, still works. Throwing a pan of water is pretty cool too. Temp has to be about -20 or colder with some wind for best...

Re: How cold does it get in the Midwest?

You learn how to dress and your body will acclimate to your locale in a relatively short time if you are truly exposed to the outdoors everyday. Very few people truly work outdoors all day long when...

Re: Nipper Comparison...just what you've been waiting for!

Back on subject, if only for a moment. :) How does the design of the springs compare? I ask because I saw a few pairs of Simms on sale at a fly show last winter. The spring appeared to be failing...

Re: How cold does it get in the Midwest?

This would seem impossible to me if I hadn't tried to operate the next door neighbor's brass door knocker with my lips when I was about five years old. That may have been the day I learned how...

Re: Flyfishing club activities.....

Good point! Not too much during my short time with the club. Seems to be split fairly evenly between trout, smallmouth and panfishing. I've heard a few of the guys mention they are a little uneasy...

Re: Flyfishing club activities.....

I meant to ask how large your chapters/clubs are? I think we may have 40 members on the books but I think 15 is a decent turnout on average. I assume that clubs near good fly water have considerably...
