Re: How do you organize your fly box?

I carry 3 C&F boxes with me all the time. One's set up for strictly for tiny midge patterns, another is dedicated to "San Juan Dries", and the other is set up for nymphs, copper johns, etc on one...

Re: Bummer!!!

Hey Neil,

Just talked to my Mom in Woodville and the power is out there now. Hope you're surviving the storm OK. We have a camp house on the east shore of Galveston Bay (at Smith Point), and I'm...

Re: Best trout rod under $150

Keep an eye on the Sage Fli series of rods since they're being discontinued. I've already seen some 4 pc rods go for as low as 160 bucks or so. That's for a rod that had a MSRP of about $315.

Re: Been Awhile!

Thanks Guys!

It's gonna be nice going to the new job tommorow and working on "real" planes for a change. DC-9s, DeHavilland Twin Otters, a Lear 35, and a Gulfstream G-3. While it's older stuff,...

Re: Rod Question

I'd definately look into the Sage Fli series of rods. Rumor has it Sage has discontinued it for a newer model. 4 piece rods that were going for 300 plus can now be had for sub-200 if you look. 2...

Re: New Sage SLT 8'9-3wt---Need line?

I use the Rio Grand on my 586 and my 389-5. I also use it on my ZXL 490-4. I think my SLTs are terrific rods, but the ZXL sure is a Cadillac of a rod :thmbup:. I had gotten an Airflow Ridge for...

Hey Ya'll,

It's been awhile since I've checked in here and I just wanted to say hi. To say things have been a little hectic for me lately would be an understatement LOL.

I finally had...

Re: Flycast reel

I agree with Frank. Got my son a flycast reel last summer and put a Cortland 444 line on it. Out the door was somewhere around 100 bucks and he got a pretty darn good starter outfit. Spend a little...

Re: Wearing your waders ?? Yes, or no

Waders here. The San Juan is about 42 degrees year round. As stupid as it sounds, I wear wool socks, even when it's pushing 100 degrees air temp. I don't like cold...brrrrrr. Haven't had the boat...

Re: What Reel and Line?

Pneumatic,

Rio does in fact make a line like this. It's the Rio Grand and I've got it for my 5 wt SLT and my new 4 wt ZXL, which I plan on breaking in tommorow morning on the San Juan. Within a...

Re: Carp flies?

Hey Joni,

Just got back from Sportsman's Warehouse here in ABQ, and they've got the yellow crystal chenille. Might check one near you.

Re: My new Toy!

Hi Frank!

Believe it or not, I don't even have a surgery consult until this coming Friday. At this rate, I'll probably have the cutting done around Christmas :wink: . From what I've read and...

Re: I fished the San Juan and look......

Good for you! The Juan is an absolutely awesome river and I'm glad you caught some fish. The downside to the river is it's popularity. Those fish sure get schooled in a hurry. I've had them move...

Re: What Reel and Line?

Hmmm. I believe you really get what you pay for when it comes to lines. The last guide I went with told me you can use a "checkout line" rod, a so-so reel, but the top of his list is the line...

My new Toy!

Hey All,

I picked up a Sage ZXL 490-4 last weekend while on the San Juan from a local shop that was getting rid of all his Sage stuff (huh?). Because of having a rod stolen last month, he upped...

Re: Carp flies?

My son caught one Sunday at the San Juan in a back slough. Believe it or not, on a size 20 parachute BWO...LOL! We may tie some flies specifically for them. Those are some great looking bugs,...

Re: Fly Swap Guidelines

Hi Frank,

I'm kinda on the fence with this one. While the idea of a little change going to the meister to offset the hassle is a good thing, I absolutely hate going to the Post Office to mail...

I'm not near as sore as I have been, but I'm not stupid, either! A full blown hernia is one heavy box away and I know it. I'm hoping to get in to see the surgeon sometime this week to get things...

If you're looking for a new chest pack, there's a smokin deal on eBay for a William Joseph Coastal pack. It's like the one I had stolen, but a different color. If I...
