Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

Thanks, Ard for the advice. You know, the shirt I'm wearing in the photo is a dark olive color which I picked thinking it would be more of a camouflage :o I need to work on approaching the water. ...

Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

Ah! Longer leader and tippet! I'm still learning as you can see. I will try that, but I still think buying a new rod is more fun and exciting though :D
I think I still need a # 2 or #3 weight...

Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

Thank you, Troutwhisperer. I'm trying to decide on the size and weight of the next rod to get. I fish with my 9' 5wt all the time, but often I thought a lighter weight rod and line would more...

Re: Small stream Stories and Pictures;

Beautiful photos and stories guys!

Quick survey: What size rods are you guys using on these small streams.
What do you recommend for a small stream rod of around ~$300?
Thanks.

Re: Reel for Thomas & Thomas XL4 864

Thanks, Mosca!
Do you have a similar T&T rod? How do you like it?

I tried fishing with a Redington drift 5/6 with this rod and it was very top heavy. It was not balanced at all. However, I...

Reel for Thomas & Thomas XL4 864

Hi guys,

I am back in the market for a reel to match my Thomas and Thomas XL-4 864 rod. I don't have access to a nearby fly shop so it's very difficult to try on different reels to match the rod....

Re: Hardy Featherweight, Lamson Guru, Orvis BattenKill LA, or Orvis CFO or

They didn't have the GPX as part of the promotion. Should I have chosen the wt 6 line instead of the 5?
My reel came and it looks great! Have not had a chance to try it out yet.

Re: Hardy Featherweight, Lamson Guru, Orvis BattenKill LA, or Orvis CFO or

Thanks, Jaybo.
I was wondering if there was a balancing reason for choosing one over the other, but your reasoning makes sense.
I think Ill do the same.
Once I get the reel and everything setup...

Thanks, Comeonavs,

Re: Hardy Featherweight, Lamson Guru, Orvis BattenKill LA, or Orvis CFO or

That's a thing of beauty Jaybo41. I like the color combo of your setup. Sweet!
The prices are slightly higher than my budget. Hmm. :mad:
But it's so awesome looking.

Hi FrankB2,

I will definitely look at the Ross again.
Thank you for your help.

Re: Hardy Featherweight, Lamson Guru, Orvis BattenKill LA, or Orvis CFO or

Thanks for your input Ard. How often does the CFO IV show up on eBay? I'm also unclear about vintage vs. non vintage, are all CFO IV considered vintage because they're discontinued? Or only the ones...
