Re: Wet Fly Rod?

Before choosing an outfit, I set my budget at $500.00 maximum. To include rod, reel, backing, fly line and leader. Rod and reel are listed, but backing, fly line and leader are not. The rod and...

Re: Caddidflies

Hello all,

From my experience color doesn't seem to make too much difference. Where I fish there is never really a hatch of one species. Usually a mix of different species in any one moment.

Re: want opinions on fly fishing vests....

After three vests I thought it might be time to try the Orvis Guide Sling. A nice change in gear, it works well. It gives me enough room and freedom of movement. Worth the extra $$

Re: List flyfishing accomplishments big and small

I've thought about it, here goes -

Up early on a beautiful mid spring morning, have a hot coffee while breakfast is cooking. Chow down, make sure we haven't forgotten anything and head out.

Re: New Pope

Walk on water huh? Combine that with one excellent staff and there you have it - The Complete Angler. Would be cool if Francis I has a fond memory or two of being on the wading and casting side.;)

Re: what would you buy??

A good light with a magnifier is worth the few extra $$. Small hook sizes aren't as daunting and practice makes perfect. LOL

The creativity and variation on some patterns can be a reward, not to...

Re: Why we do it

I watched a couple of folks catching grayling, rainbow trout and silver salmon when I was a wee nipper in Alaska.

The idea of wire, feathers and fur to fish with proved to be irresistible still to...

Re: Strange things we do or don't do

I try to remember my fishing license and carry it while fishing.

At the end of the day, make sure the fly rod and reel have been put away instead of laying on top of the camper shell unsecured.

Re: Do you buy or tie?

I enjoy trying to tie stuff that looks roughly like what the natives may see, and hope they ride right in the film. Have to admit I gotta have the time, patience and enough magnification to crank...

Re: What's the worst fly rod you've ever had?

No doubt, a Wright & McGill 8'6" 7 weight fiberglass beast. I slapped more water, scared off more fish and hooked more of the local foliage than seemed reasonable. Did catch a few fish with it, but...

Re: Sage Flight, TFO TiCrX, or BVK...for pike

Nightfly,

What size water(s) are you fishing and how large are the fish? Might as well maximize your fun for the money. :D

Re: A couple of dry black Numbers

MFF,

About what size are the black? Those look like dead ringers for some of the small mayflies in our neck of the woods in NM.

Thank you for adding a little extra to me flybox.
