Re: Caveat Emptor

How does one use this type of hooks for fly fishing? I used some of the larger hooks with a nail knot to hold the hook to some backing, for stingers on articulated flies but other than that??

Re: So I found some old fly gear in the attic...

The rods from Los Pinos should be great rods. The Los Pinos rods on Sage blanks are, in my opinion, much better made than Sage rods.

Re: Bead Fishing in Fly Fishing Only Water

Stan

Re: Cool Water Trout Line for 5 wt. Sage XP?

I have to agree with Chi about SA Mastery Textured WF 5 WT GPX. I have that line on my 5 wt XP and it is wonderful. I was amazed how well it casts.
