Re: Carp ??

I started carpin last year. Man oh man! What a rush. I have yet to actually land one, I've managed to hook into 3-4 of them. They can peel off 50 yards of fly line before you know what hit you! They...

Re: Class ain't so bad....

I wasn't apologizing my any means. I wasn't actually targeting them, I just happened to cast out by some rock structure and on my first strip this guy took my fly.

Re: Looking for used soft action rod

Re: Twisted leaders

A twisted leader is not a true furled leader. I refer to them as poor mans furled leader. However, I love that you can "customize" them to your specific needs.

Re: Class ain't so bad....

Re: Reddington

Clearwater is a very good set up. You can also look at the Cabelas RLS+ combo. I know a lot of people get caught up in brand names and what no. However, for the price point, I think the cabelas combo...

Give it a day or two. I'm sure they will respond. I know it's going to be a long painful wait, but I'm sure in they end they will take care of you.
