I don't think any color fly line will save you from a bad...

Re: The Great Lakes 'running out of water?' Interesting read.

Here in the Port of St. Joseph, LaFarge is likely going to totally close their plant down due to the fact they can't get their ships into port full any longer.

At least here, it's not so much lake...

Re: Camo fly line?

Surprising that after viewing the information in that book, I don't know of a single company making "white" fly lines.

Anyone know of any? Would also aid in knowing when to clean your fly line...

Re: Camo fly line?

I like a mossy colored line as I always figured it MAY be mistaken for weeds or a stick or something.

However, I don't really let the color of the line dictate how I feel about it.

Re: Literature...

Sorry! I guess I should have been a little more specific!

Makes you wonder if the change in ownership had anything to do with the smearing of that apparently ex-stakeholders last name... LOL

Re: Streamer rod suggestion

Scott S4 and VXP in my opinion have too soft of a tip to be good streamer rods, especially big streamers.

One thing you may consider...

The Sage reel is made in South Korea

Re: Reel suggestions for 9ft 5wt Hardy Zenith

Out of those 3, while all having great drag systems, the Galvan is the most sturdy for sure, but the other two aren't junk by any means.
