Re: put-take fisheries

I used to fish put/take fisheries when I lived in PA quite a bit. Look, I have no problem with people keeping the fish. My issue, I suppose, is selfish in nature to some point. If they dump in a...

Re: Those clip-on magnifier things...

I've used them and they do work for me. Getting them just right takes some getting used to but once you do it's very helpful. I had eye surgery and haven't had to use them since.

Re: Am I over thinking this?

If you want it and can afford it buy it. Do you need an Abel TR-1 on a 3 weight. Well, no. It's simply a click/pawl reel. There are others such as the Pocket Water by LL Bean, the Drift by...

Re: Jewels of the Driftless

Nice. Fabulous day.

The gill plates on all those brookies look to be in good shape. Did you catch any with damaged gill plates and gill lice? I've noticed an increase in the number of streams...

Never! I'd just add to the quiver more reels I certainly don't need :D

Re: Stream rules: rant content... beware.

I actually did lose it a bit when fishing Erie, PA for Steelhead this past November. Erie is notoriously crowded, you deal with it. But I'd been fishing a run for hours because of crowded...

Re: Stream rules: rant content... beware.

Not to turn this into class warfare, but high dollar resorts can have clients who are entitled to fish wherever they want, regardless of ethics.

Other people are just simply clueless - on the...

Re: Favorite thing about Fly Fishing

The woods, mountains, meadows, wildlife and experiences are what draw me to fly fishing. It used to be catching fish and ultimately, that's what I'm there to do. But I live and work in the City of...

Re: cleaning rods after a trip.

Warm water, soft cloth. That's it for me. Same for the cork.

Re: Loomis.....losing fans and market share?

I have two Loomis rods and I love both of them. If my shop actually stocked them, I'd probably have more. But since they stock Sage, and I can cast Sage against their other rods - Scott, Scott,...

Re: How do yall hold your tippet spools?

I use a tippet post with spools of 1x - 6x for trout and 0x to 5x for Steelhead - staggered down in size. This is expecially useful when I'm standing in the river and building out a leader. I must...

Re: Sealed Drag Reels

I'm no flats fisherman but I find it intersting that there were no Abel's or other draw bar reels. I'm not surprised that there were no tales of reel failure, because there are some really high...

Re: Loomis NRX

Big fan of the NRX. Bought my first one this fall-10'9 weight and it's a beast. Smooth casting and impressive. It will not be my last.

As an aside. Green? C'mon man! If you're fishing a NRX ya...

Re: 9'/#5 Burkheimer, Method, Radian, Solar

Never cast a 9/5 Burkie but I have fallen in love with my 489-4 DAL. Different in every way from my Sage fly rods, but a pure pleasure to fish.

I'll probably buy a Radian one of these days. I've...
