old fiberglass & modern fly lines

I have an old fiberglass 8 1/2 foot South Bend model 3370 that I'm pairing with an equally old Heddon 320 reel for bluegill/bass fishing. Any thoughts on what modern line would be a good match? The...

I have an old fiberglass South Bend 8 1/2 foot model 3370, rated for a HDH line, I'm pairing it up with an equally old Heddon 320 reel. I'm thinking it'll make a sweet bluegill/bass outfit. I'm...

Re: scientific anglers 2la 890

So does a 2la fall into the "vintage" range?...this one's fairly new (for me anyway), I bought it about 10 years ago for a North Dakota pike fishing safari.

Re: scientific anglers 2la 890

Mine is a dedicated northern pike reel (with a few bass adventures too)...it's one of the smoothest reels I've handled. If it is a Hardy manufactured reel, it's kinda like when Winchester used to...

Re: Greetings from frozen southwest Iowa!

It's great standing in the Madison in late October, snow falling, mist rising from the water, and swinging soft hackles. Oh yeah, there IS that line freezing in the guides thing though!

Re: Greetings from frozen southwest Iowa!

Yeah, there aren't too many cool water springs around Council Bluffs, IA! We do have some killer bluegills & bass though. It'd be nice to be blessed with both.

Smile Re: Greetings from frozen southwest Iowa!

Being raised in sw Iowa, warm water is pretty much what we have, except for right now. I fell in love with flyfishing at a very young age and started tying flies immediately (no money to buy 'em)'...

Greetings from frozen southwest Iowa!

I live in sw Iowa and have been flyfishing/tying for 50 years. A Hobie Floatcat is my current, and favorite, platform for the beautiful local farm ponds I fish for bass, bluegills, & crappies. When I...

Re: Float tubers....ASSEMBLEEEEEE!

Float tubes are a ton of fun! It was my main platform for local farm ponds for years...I picked up a couple Hobie Floatcats about 15 years ago and made the switch, pontoons are the way to go for what...

Jim Leisenring's "disciples"

Greetings! My first post, so pardon me if I'm in the wrong area. I have an old book "The Rough Stream Nymph/Lawrie" that I think belonged to one of Big Jim's group of soft hackle cohorts. Does anyone...
