Re: Falling in love with my glass Superfine

Once you go glass...

I have read that the 7'6 4wt is the sweetheart of the three offerings. Might have to get a blank when they become available to builders.

Re: Gulf Shores

Great thread with a happy ending! Glad you learned to double haul. Your wife would've been way hacked off if you got that clouser stuck in the papoose carrier!

Re: New to the sport and the forum - few questions

Scotty... something to learn about dry fly fishing is not to focus entirely on 'just' your/the fly. Keep the fly at the top of your peripheral vision, in focus, but look at the water around and...

Re: Fathers Day on my home stream

Thanks for posting Joe. You know it is always great when you/I/we are out on the water and the time just flies (no pun intended). We are immersed in the moment. I've said it before and I'll say it...

Re: Do you ever fish with Two Rods....?

I should duel wield more often than I do, but that means I have to lash a tube to my pack, wear a larger pack. I guess I'm just too lazy to do it more often.

Size of water fishing
Size of patterns presenting
Style of patterns and rigging
