Re: Click on Nautilus NV Reel

I did not go back to ask that dealer. I bought the reel from him several months ago, and had not used it until recently.

Click on Nautilus NV Reel

I recently bought a Nautilus NV 5/6 reel and extra spool from a dealer online, after I was unable to locate one from a local fly shop/dealer. One is a gigabyte spool and the other is the regular...

Re: Yep, sorry, but it's another Best Drift Boat thread

Geno -

I am located over in Paradise Valley on the Yellowstone during the summer, and like you, am retired.

I have a fairly new Hyde, and before that had a Clackacraft for a number of years. ...

Re: The Girdle Bug... This fly saved the day

Using epoxy will surely result in very secure legs, however, I find that if I wrap the body with lead (or a lead-free alternative), wind over the lead with tying thread to secure it, and then tie in...

Re: Montana Fisheries Letter

Yes, that seems to be the reason it didn't work for me either. Once I tried on my desktop computer, the link worked fine.

And thanks, Bob, for providing this info.

Re: Montana Fisheries Letter

The link doesn't work for me either. I would love to read the report, but I am also unable to locate it on the FWP website, or by doing an Internet search.

I had wondered how they were going to...

Re: Felt sole or Rubber with Studs?

For me, hiking any distance with spikes is a lot harder on my feet than hiking with felt soles.

If you want the most comfort, combined with good footing, then I'd go with felt.
If you want...

Re: Patagonia wading boots suck (only not any more)

Patagonia has fantastic customer service, similar to LL Bean's, and a few others.

If you are not satisfied with any of their products, let them know and they will resolve it, in my experience.

Re: Summer FF related work in MT

I'll second that for the lower Madison at least. Had my truck shuttled to the wrong take out there last spring. Fortunately, I saw my truck as we floated by there, and only had to drag my boat back...

Re: The Little Things

Those 99 cent ponchos might be a bit better than nothing, but I've seen them torn to shreds in a matter of a few minutes when the wind picks up, as it invariably does most afternoons in MT (and...

Re: Nautilus (as a whole)?

I spoke with the Trout Shop via phone in early August, as I recall, and they had the exact G5 in stock that I was looking for. I could have gotten that one from them, but by the time I called there...

Re: Nautilus (as a whole)?

I had planned to buy 2 new Nautilus reels this past spring, an NV G5 and a G7 from 2 different fly shops in SW Montana near where I spend the summer. One told me he already had the G5 on order and...

Re: Winter storage pontoon ?

It goes without saying that your pontoon should be dry before storing it for the winter. I just roll my tubes up and put ithem in a dry, but breathable, bag. I've kept my pontoons in an unheated...

I am located on the Yellowstone, near Emigrant, and I have a Hyde XL low profile boat that I've had for the past couple years. Before that I had a Clackacraft low profile.

Re: Montana Fly Fishing

There is no good trout fishing in MT. However, a friend of mine and I each got 2 nice cutthroat yesterday in Wyoming 19" to 22". I hooked and lost a couple more comparable ones.

Re: Where the Yellowstone goes.

I saw it last year, and was just telling a couple friends about it the other day as we floated and fished the Yellowstone. Enjoyed it.

Re: Looking for opinions on Nautilus NV reel

Thanks for your comments. That sounds like something was defective in the drag mechanism of your particular reel. Do you think that was the case?

Re: Looking for opinions on Nautilus NV reel

I will be sure to look at these new reels when they come out.

I take good care of my cork drags now, but I'm sure there are others that are as good, or better, and easier to maintain.

Re: Looking for opinions on Nautilus NV reel

Thank you for your thoughts and input.

I, too, appreciate the importance of balancing the rod to the reel.

I've found that my ported Abel .5, at 4.6 oz, loaded with a 5 WFF line and backing...

Looking for opinions on Nautilus NV reel

I have been mainly using Abel reels for the past 15-20 years, shortly after they first came on the market. I have used Abel .5's for my everyday trout fishing, and Abel Big Game 1's for streamer...

Re: Itinerary from Bozeman to SLC (MT, WY)

Ric -

There is a KOA in Four Corners, that is a bit pricey but not bad otherwise. You'd probably want to drive a bit farther up the canyon to fish though if you stayed there. Or, there are a...

Re: Upper Yellowstone drainage snowpack at 158% of average..

I know exactly what you're saying, seriously! And being on the river at 10,000 below town is also not for someone with a high life expectation, in my already long life opinion.:)
