Re: In The Aftermath Of The Storm...

Holy Cats Momma! I hope the house is OK structurally.

Great explanations by the way. Thanks.

Re: Spool size, new to fly fishing, help!

Welcome, hope you stay around and ask a lot of questions.

As ts47 said, check with Orvis.

Re: Laugh of the day - not FF related

Re: What's "high end", "mid-price" & "low end"?

I'll tend to agree with Mikel but tweak it a bit:

low <$300
