Re: Fiberglass or Graphite?

The first time I fished a slower rod, I definitely saw a huge improvement in my casting. The loops were straight and smooth, and I was able to deliver the fly much more intuitively.

Re: Family friendly, semi-inexpensive Caribbean destination?

Yeah, I live about 25-30 miles from St. Croix currently, so the fishing would be similar to what I have here. I am mainly looking for someplace where the wife and baby can enjoy a resort or nice...

Re: Eleuthera

We started our trip near Rainbow Bay (I think that's what it was called, it's been several years), so probably pretty close to there... there wasn't that much fishing in that area. We then spent a...

Re: Eleuthera

We went for our honeymoon for a little under a month... The flats in Governor's Harbor can be decent, you just sometimes literally wait in line to fish them. Savannah flats (I think that was the...

Re: PostFly Box Review

I bought the tying box for a gift for someone... hoping it just gets them tying, not necessarily anything fancy. The idea was, having a step-by-step, with just the materials for a few good flies,...

Re: Looking for Photos

I'm a photographer by trade, and seeing stuff like this makes me sick. "Hey, give me free content so I can make money from your intellectual property!". What a joke.

Re: 100 ft casts, real or fiction?

My old Echo 8wt could do this, but my current 8wt seems to fold at 70-80ft of line out of the guides. The Echo felt like a much heavier rod, and was far from delicate, but you could carry a mile of...

Re: Big ol' Steelhead

My largest was a fat 36", likely pushing 18lb. It was clipped and it tasted delicious. I can't imagine a 46" fish. That would be a long, long battle.

Re: cabelas prestige plus lines -- any comments ?

I have the Prestige Plus Saltwater on my 8wt. Good line, nice coating... a little stiff, but shoots really well. I like the taper as well... Heavy, short head that carries big flies well, yet still...

Re: School me on Snook

Incoming tide during sunrise this week... looks like high-tide will be at 9:30AM+, so hopefully it will be low enough when I get out there at ~6AM Tomorrow.

Re: School me on Snook

The shoreline is mixed... Vieques is off the east coast of PR, and I can only access the western half of the island (eastern half is closed). I know of really only one spot where a lagoon pours out...

School me on Snook

So, there seems to be overall limited information on flyfishing for Snook... at least, in the capacity that I can actually fish for them. Here are the questions I can't really seem to answer:

Re: Bonefishing Areas - semi-DYI?

Eleuthera in the Bahamas is a great DIY destination. Some other great activities, and some very accessible bonefishing. Almost everything is done wading on foot, and there are miles and miles of...

Re: Looking for a reel recommendation

Pretty great deals right now on the Hardy Ultralite's. I think one in the size you are looking for will be over $150, but it's a lot of reel for that price. If I only had $100 to spend though, I'd...

Re: Best fly reel $100-200

I just picked up the 4000DD and it's a very, very nice reel for what you pay for it on closeout--one of the nicer reels I've ever used. It also makes much nicer clicky noises than my other reels :D

Re: $2485 will almost get you the "essentials" to fly fish

I am headed back to OR for six weeks, and just dumped ~$600-700 and got a very nice rod/reel, waders and pretty much everything I need to spend a few of those weeks trout fishing. I could have done...

Re: The Unicorn...

Yeah, it was very intense, sort of hands-shaking, poor-decision making intense... sort of spent the rest of the day thinking about what I would have done differently, switching to a crab fly, etc. I...

So, saw my first permit today.

Not necessarily a big deal for people who see them often, but this was a little more special. I was checking out this little pocket flat, mainly to target snappers...

Re: The American Southwest - trip advice?

Can anyone verify this? How much is a boat rental? We are only planning a day there, so it may be worth it to rent a boat.

Re: The American Southwest - trip advice?

Thanks, that's a great start. So far, I have Lee's Ferry and the San Juan on my must-fish list. I'll definitely add this to the list.

Re: For Those Who Need Fishing Pliers;

I'd probably use them just to cut mono 99% of the time, and occasionally to cut wire bite-tippet when chasing 'cudas. Looks like they'll work :)

Are they aluminum or stainless, or just plain steel? I want a pair of heavy pliers for the salt, and they seem like the best budget option. Mustad and P-Line both make some as well, but they have...
