Orvis Access WF Line

Anyone have this? I bought the Clearwater Line and it just wasn't what I was looking for. Although a good line for the money, it was too heavy with too much memory so I am contemplating returning it...

Re: Black quill, blue quill or BWO?

Asked a friend of mine who I would say might be the smartest fly fisherman I know and this was his response.

"That's a quill. If the body is alternating black and grey it's a blue quill. If there...

Re: What could I do better?

I can usually fish Cahills in May but it's been very cold (unseasonably) so I think it'll be right on time this year. I'll get 'em tied in Feb.

I've been tying some Skunkulators this month and...

Re: Allen Fly Fishing - Product Discounts

I love Allen gear. I bought an ATS last year and it's the only thing I fish. I only wish I would have waited and got the Heritage before they discontinued the ATS.

Re: What could I do better?

One thing I worried about was the thickness from where the wire meets the tail. Too thick?

Re: Trout fishing and camping in the Smokey Mountains Help!!!

I think the best water in the entire park is Hazel Creek just north of Fontana Lake. It might be the best in NC. It's remote and you won't run into a ton of other fisherman.

Re: Would you fish these flies?

I don't find these to be ugly at all but I don't think my grandfather was too attached to them. The only reason I'll probably put them back now is because of where they came from and the time. He...

Re: Midge hooks and the Davidson

I have always tied my midges on a regular emerger hook and no, an 18 is not too big on the Davidson. I usually go with a 20 but an 18 is just fine.

Re: Would you fish these flies?

I have plenty of other fly fishing items he gave me that are much more dear including some of his own flies but you are probably right maybe I'll just put these in with the other items.
