Re: Flyfishing adventures--a shameless boast

I'm planning on studying for the bar in a similar way - I want to work it so this summer I have only two distractions, study and fishing during low light. My plan is to get in the truck and head...

Re: 7 weights....why no love?

I would compare it to the 16 gauge shotgun. Ive always wanted a 16 gauge. Its a handy size. But I dont see many 16s, or 16 shells, when I go to a sporting goods store.

Like with shotguns, most...

Good deal on fly rod

Just picked up a TFO professional series 9 wt at BPS for 70 bucks.

Re: From the front page of Yahoo....

I guess I missed that on the video. It looked as though the tarpon had his fist and he couldn't get the fist out, at least thats what I thought I was seeing.

Re: From the front page of Yahoo....

Yeah, I don't see the big deal one way or another. They are essentially pets, and one of the pets bit the hand that feeds. I don't think the guy doing the feeding should be up for a Darwin award,...

Re: GoPro camera

As I understand it, the GoPro is as well received as it is because it is very small, waterproof (in its housing) and takes video in 1080 resolution.

Re: Fly Giveaway

I live in Montgomery, so that means locally I bass fish on the Coosa, and sometimes the Tallapoosa. I've been over to the Flint in georgia fairly recently as well. I also sometimes head down to...

I'm not sure if UA has a fly fishing team yet. I do know they started the bass fishing team the year after I left.

I would like your facebook page, but you understand I can't have...
