Re: Knee pads (under or over waders)

Basketball kneepads. I've worn them for decades. How else can you fish in full-on stealth mode? $10-15 at your local sporting goods store.

Re: Tying tippet to leader

I use a double Surgeon's knot. Works fine for me, easy to tie.

Re: Black flies

I use the mesh bug jacket and a head net. For working outside as well. It's a good thing they're only around for a few weeks or Maine would be largely unpopulated. Um...well, it is..

Re: fly line Knots - a problem

A clinch knot is not sufficient, as you've discovered. Use an improved clinch knot.

Re: Eat that fish, or release it?

Yep, I agree. Another question for those that do take fish- would you drink the water they're living in?

Re: Source you use for tying?

Opening that Herter's box was better than a birthday sometimes. Stuff for me, stuff for my Dad. I still have my first vise from Herter's, and some of the tying materials as well.

Re: Source you use for tying?

It's not about instant gratification, it's about competing in the on-line marketplace. When your competitors outperform you they're going to take market share, and deservedly so.

Re: Source you use for tying?

I've used a couple of those with really nice catalogs, the problem is that they take so long to ship. Shipping an order on the third or fourth day after receiving the order is just not acceptable....

Re: Small flies - what box (or other method) do you use?

I use the CF boxes. The midge box with the threaders is perfect for the little flies.

Re: West Canada Creek

I've fished the Trenton Falls immediate area quite a bit. There's really no need to get into the water there at all, and really nowhere to safely do it. Downstream around Partridge Hill is where a...

Re: Anyone else just slop it out there?

Kneeling behind a fallen tree or a boulder or in the grass, fishing with more leader than line, no room for a back cast... there are no style points to be had. If your basic gear includes basketball...

Re: Finally got around to tying a couple things...

When it becomes apparent that you've got too much dubbing, strip the excess down the thread. You've got Charlie's book, he says " There's no law saying you have to use all the dubbing".
