Re: Sinking or sink tip line for a 3wt??

The reason sinking lines are hard to find for a 3wt is that it would be extremely difficult to get that line up and out of the water to cast. I use a 4wt for lake panfish and understand your...

Re: Fly Tying Material, not from a fly shop ??

I have had good luck with the foam from craft/sewing stores. What I buy is the same stuff as I get from the fly shop except about 20x for the same price. Colors are limited (can't find dark green)....

Re: northern california

Just moved to Sac. a few years ago and have been spending most of my time on the Delta. I would appreciate any advice on good streams/smaller rivers that I can take my 10 yr. old son to get trout.

Re: Next flyfishing question:)

Go to your local fly shop (or two) and tell them what you want to fish for and where - they should be more than happy to show you what works in your area.

Re: Panfish fly selection

Re: Stripped Bass Flies

I believe the best fly for stripped bass, largemouth, smallmouth and just about anything else with fins is the Clouser Minnow. It slays them! Check out this site Tying Flies with Bob Clouser...

Re: 4 wt, 5wt or 6wt ?? Newbie help again

If the salmon are still running you are in for a treat. Throw an egg pattern behind the salmon and get ready for a good time. The trout up there follow the salmon and you will catch some very nice...
