Re: ZG Helios 5 weight

The Helios "mid flex" is the ultimate rod ever built! Lightest, and best casting rod in the world.

Try some SA Air Cel WF6F (order online from WalMart for $17) or pickup in your local WalMart.

Re: Good for fish... Not for fishing

Re: fish finder on a float tube ?

I have a portable Humminbird 110 (only $112 at WalMart) and it is a wonderful thing to have on a float tube!

Re: Crappie on a 3wt

Larry,

Everything I tie is a variation of a Woolybugger. The three in the middle are what I'm catchin' the crappie on. I get a little crazy with a permeant marker sometimes?

A couple years ago, I noticed a couple Amish guys fishing at one of the lakes I visit. Lancaster is close by (I admire the Amish, and I especially like the hats they wear). They don't like cameras...
