Re: Orvis Hydros reel

Hi- not sure if you have made your decision yet, but I acquired a Hydros V for my 9wt rod and it is too heavy. I recently tried it on a Sage Vantage 9'9wt, and it was even more unbalanced. Just out...

Re: New to Saltwater

Good tip- I expected to get knocked around, but not down there!

Re: New to Saltwater

Swirl- yep, it is the blank. I am going to go for a better rod next season, but I thought this would've lasted a little longer, even as a "starter" rod (i.e see some fish at least!). I would like to...

Re: PFD Vests in the surf

Thanks Mike. I wouldn't call the surf treacherous, although I'm sure a big storm can make it that way. I'm more concerned about me taking a tumble or getting caught in a riptide or something.
And...

Re: Menhaden: an 86% decline

This is really unbelievable. It is amazing that this kind of large scale dredging of the waters is still allowed to happen. Helicopters and spotter planes? Really? If you've read Mark Kurlansky's...

I live in RI, but work in downtown Boston. I can tell you that Orvis in Faneuil Hall is the only one in town. That being said, they still have a full fly shop upstairs, staffed with fishermen, and...

I've been using the Orvis slingpack since the summer. I really like it, but one thing I found out is that I think it is a uni-directional design. What I mean is, I sling my bags (briefcase, messenger...
