Re: New to this...

The St Croix is probably worth about $65 but you might get more from the right person.
That's the kinda rod that I collect but I'd pass at even that price.

The 9' H-I, a little more. Maybe as...

Re: Up and Down locking reel seats

I have a Phillipson Royal Wand spin/fly that has a classy looking sliding skeleton reel seat
You can position it at any place you like on the grip.

I've had problems with downlocking cork seats...

Re: Need youth waders

Cabela's has kid's waders
My son wore the 3Forks bootfoots until he grew out of them...didn't take long
Put a hole in them the first day too. :rolleyes: But that's what kids do.

Re: Up and Down locking reel seats

Vintage rods used down-locking to better balance the heavier rods.
Modern rods use up-locking to help keep the reel from getting caught in your clothing.

Re: Does your state have a trout season?

We have a closed season here in CT and always will.

Re: Can anybody help me identify these two reels?

The 67A is a good solid vintage reel. Use it in good health.
The 81 automatic,,, Automatics aren't all that popular now-a-daze, but they still make them.

Re: Interchangeable articulated fly

Re: What flavor was your Kool Aid?

Product tie-in with the "Ghostbusters" movie

I'm up to at least 20 glass fly rods at this point, but the eureka moment came when I got my kayak.

Re: CB Radios. Anyone, besides me, still carry those on the river?

Where we fish, there's no cell reception. Everybody has CB radios in their trucks. You'd be a fool not to have one.
Mine is just a little portable emergency radio that I keep under the seat.
Plugs...

There's a lot of time, effort and money that goes into raising hatchery trout.

Re: Should I say something?

No they're not

It's hard enough to keep them alive during transport and stocking
Drugging them would only make that more difficult

Re: Should I say something?

I wouldn't worry about it.
When I stocked trout for the state, we'd always drop them from a height
That may have been by holding the net up as high as possible or even dumping them off a bridge....

Re: Neoprene Leaks

The compression leaks that Silver speaks of have nothing to do with boot foot waders like yours
A leak like you have is caused by stress, not compression, and should be easily repaired
Just be sure...

Re: Neoprene Leaks

Yup, they should be rolled rather than folded or hung up by the boots.. away from any ozone. Like your furnace.
To find the leak, fill them with water to above the suspected area. Just don't hang...
