Re: Which reel for bonefish?

As usual, I agree with S&S, I would add Ross Big Game (if you can find one) to his list of favorites. Some of the other Ross reels may be as good but I have no first hand experience with them. ...

Re: Eleuthera

I'll be there early March for a couple of weeks and have been going every year for about 15 years. We usually stay mid-island so I can access both north and south flats. It's not a fishing trip for...

Re: Cross Country Fishing trip

No matter where you go or where you fish make sure you spend a few days in Yellowstone NP, there's good fishing but so much more. Every American should go there at least once.

Re: Is there a "Best" time of day to catch trout?
