Re: Best Low Cost Reel Options???

I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to buy a used medalist. Unless someone took a ball peen hammer to one, the more they are used, the better they work. I've always marveled at the medalist, there...

Re: Warm water fishing in winter

I realize this borders on sacrilege, but I'd encourage you to give ice fishing a try if you get the opportunity. Using a small fly reel, 1/2 lb test line and flies, it requires as much finesse as...

Re: Fly floatant Substitutes

I'm a self professed dry fly bigot, that's how I like to fish. I do apply a floatant to my fly at the beginning of the day. Sooner or later, the fly get a bit soggy. Being naturally lazy, I avoid...

Re: Newbie to Michigan Salmon & Steelhead

Quite honestly, you won't have trouble finding where the fish are. Just drive around on any weekend and look for the swarming masses of fisher (and some not so fisher) people.

Best advice I can...

Re: Let's talk about nets.

Maybe a dumb question to ask, do you really need a net? Certainly there are situations where a net is a good idea. Personally, I spend all my time fishing while wading in the water, I've been...

Re: Newbie to Michigan Salmon & Steelhead

I agree with BEF, I think you may be jumping the gun a bit for salmon even more so for steelhead. Trout on the other hand could be rewarding. Of course you could do some scouting for future trips...

Re: $500 Rod Option?

Just a thought, if you don't have an immediate need, maybe pick up a higher level reel or two. Consider it a fly fishing investment. Most of my top end reels are worth more now than when I bought...

Re: Two More Converts

I think you'll find you will at least have a shot at trout up to 15, maybe 16 inches. After that, the odds increase exponentially in the fishes favor.

That may not necessarily be all bad, there...

Re: connecting tippet to level line?

Like Stan, I like to terminate my main line with a small perfection loop. Makes it easy to change leaders/tippets.

Re: Tenkara

Best advice I can give you, if catching larger fish in fast water is the goal - use a reel. Tenkara rods work extremely well for their intended purpose - to accurately and delicately present a fly....

Yep, I see what you are saying regarding needle/nail knots. That was my mistake or my ever failing memory, I can't remember which. Sorry about that.

Re: Vintage heavier-duty reel?

I've caught countless salmon on my Cimmaron, it's never so much as hiccuped.
I don't think you will be disappointed.

Re: Say wot??? $89.95?

Actually that's pretty cheap seeing how the $14.99 line I use cost almost half as much as a $21 Eagle Claw Featherlight rod or the $25 Medalist reel I sometimes use.

Once I convince you it's...

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

There are a couple of different clicker arrangements used in Medalist reels, depending on the model. I'm assuming yours has a triangular check that is held in place with a leaf spring. If that's...

Re: Pflueger Medalist BROKE

Fred,

I was thinking the exact same thing. I'd consider it an honor and a privledge to wear out a Medalist.

Kid,

I take it your reel model has a non-adjustable drag?

Sounds like you...
