Re: polarized sunglasses- what color lenes best for fishing ?

My Grey Maui Jim's are great driving glasses but cut out way too much light for nearly all fishing situations except perhaps flats. I use Action Optics "amber" polarchrome which are yellow for...

Re: Eyes" for streamers: Does it really matter?

You'll probably get the variety of opinions but besides the obvious functional application of weighted dumbell eyes, I think eyes are more for the fisherman than the fish. I've had them bitten off...

Re: Eastern Sierra Update?

Thanks guys. Thought I'd update you on my trip. My timing in both directions wasn't so good. I got snowed on and froze my b***z off camping and fishing the East Walker for two hookups. Both...

Re: Winston Vapor fly rod 4 a begginner or other options?

Just goes to show you you have to cast them yourself. Two completely different opinions on action from two owners who have fished them.

Re: Anyone use a Sage SLT?

I picked up a 490 last summer when they were starting to be offered on sale. It's deceiving in a way. It's got a lot more flex and feel than my 590 Z or my 710 3wt. TXL but it's got quite a bit of...

Eastern Sierra Update?

Hello all. I'm heading out on a road trip from the Sacramento area to Phoenix to visit some friends (and some fish). I'll be traveling the 395 corridor and am hoping to put in a couple of days of...

Re: What do you wear ???

Long legged mirco fiber wicking underwear in warm weather and various weights of long underwear and fleece during the winter. I don't like the clammy feeling of skin up against the waders regardless...

Re: Fly Fishing Gone Wrong....WAY WRONG!

My God Frank, that scared the heck out of me just looking at it. She came so close to a very serious problem. Please, please, please, don't fish without eye protection. Was the barb pinched on...

Re: Stocked trout question ;)

You have good advice here. I wouldn't worry about farmed raised stockers being leader shy and would focus on a balanced fishable setup. Those fish should be pretty suicidal once you find them. ...

Re: Winston Vapor fly rod 4 a begginner or other options?

Hi Frank,

I broke the Z in on a three day Green River float last August. Pretty good trial by fire for it (and me). Mostly dries but I've had a chance to do a fair amount of nymphing with it...

Re: Winston Vapor fly rod 4 a begginner or other options?

Hi Frank,

When I bought my 4wt Vapor, I bought a 9ft 5wt. with it at the same time. I ended up selling that for a 5wt. Fli, which I in turn sold to buy a 5wt. Z Axis. I agree completely that...

Re: Left or Right-hand reel'n?

I switch casting hands constantly depending on wind direction and the shape of the cast. I can reel comfortably with both hands but I'm much more proficient reeling and managing line with my right...

Re: Winston Vapor fly rod 4 a begginner or other options?

I have the 4wt. in 8'6". It's a nice rod and certainly one that would be kept in the stable as you collect more. It's a medium action which should help you develop timing and feel. It really comes...

Re: Which fly would you choose

I know I would catch fewer fish but I don't think I could fish subsurface for a year straight so I'd have to go with a dry attractor of some sort. Maybe a green and copper triple double in a 14 or...

Re: short rods vs. long rods

It's likely to be a bit stiffer and quicker than it's nine foot brother which should make it a little easier to cast heavier bugs if say you are a bass fisherman. If I were to go shorter with a...

Re: Age/Experience

That's a good one. There is also the fact that one angler's year is not necessarily equal to another. There is a difference between someone who fished a hundred days a year for multiple species at...

Re: trout on Kauai

If you don't find any local responses, check the Trout Unlimited Hawaii chapter webstite at tuhi.com. I found it when I was checking for trout in Indonesia.

Re: waterproof Camera

Fly2Fish, just wishful thinking. I don't know whether or not it has the same vision engine. I didn't know it was out until this thread. I do like the changes to the interface and having near SLR...

Re: waterproof Camera

That jog wheel on the 1030 is a nice change from the 770. I really hate having to toggle linearly through picture modes. Looks like some good updates. Now if they fixed the weak color/light...

Re: Tippet vs. Tapered Leader

I'll add just a couple of additional comments. Many nymphers see little advantage to spending the money on tapered leaders and construct their leader systems with straight mono tippet material.

Re: waterproof Camera

No Problem Neil. The other tradeoff on size and form factor is ergonomics. An earlier poster mentioned that the Pentax is easier to hold. I have large hands and long fingers. The Olympus is kind...

I've let it hang from the lanyard in the stream for extended periods while fishing and releasing fish. I've taken underwater shots of spawning Kokane and Rainbows, and I've hung it from a lanyard...

Re: Age/Experience

I think it's useful to note for us old guys that got in to FF late, whether or not you are new to fishing in general. I've been fishing since I was 8 but just took up the Fly a year and a half ago.

Re: waterproof Camera

to the earlier question, the Olympus has a smaller footprint than the Pentax.

I've completely tested the underwater capabilities of the Oly (770 SW) and it's solid. You can dunk it at will.
