Re: Fly Fishing Near Indianapolis

I've only been out twice locally in the past month. I did make it out to MT to visit my brother in-law for a few days fishing, and it was fantastic.

I went to Eagle Creek Reservoir in my boat...

Florida.

Montana.

Re: Need help for choosing first saltwatet fly combo

Allen Fly Fishing (site sponsor) has, as their "deal of the week", a store credit ($50, iirc) when you buy an 8 weight rod, which you could put toward an Alpha or Kraken reel.

Or, you could buy...

Re: Double fly rig for finicky clear-water smallmouths

After spending 3 full days throwing hopper/dropper in MT, I'm going to "up the ante" so to speak for smallies. Great idea. I'm also going to try Flygrain's advice for the bucketmouths and water...

Re: Watercraft Advice Needed

No such thing as dumb questions. I just looked at my battery, and it's actually a group 27. I bought it at Wal-Mart for about $100, iirc. Yes, I have the power center. It's pretty slick, I like...

Re: Watercraft Advice Needed

Re: Watercraft Advice Needed

For the record, you do not want to use a cranking (car) battery for your trolling motor. You will want a deep cycle battery. Group 27 is the smallest I would go. You will also want to invest in a...

Well, I'm going to propose a solution that you may like. How about you get your jon boat with motor, trolling motor and trailer instead of springing for a new canoe. You can find some great deals...

Re: Old/New Fly Ride

Man, that looks real similar to the tin I just picked up. Mine's a 1970's, 16'6" Smoker Craft Sport Angler. I'm planning on a refurb this winter after fishing season is over.

Re: Chicagoland beginner

I'm not familiar with your local waters, but I would assume they are similar to mine here in Indianapolis. I would say a 5 or 6 weight outfit would fit your needs. I have fished a 5 for smallies,...

I've seen a "box pass" on another forum go bad, but I think the people on here can make it work, as long as newtyer1 isn't involved. I'd be happy to pitch in on the initial...

Re: Well, United Airlines won't get my money anymore.

Carry it on anyway. When you go through security, the TSA won't know the size limitations. Worst case scenario, when you get to the gate, the attendant will ask you to "gate check" it. They will...

My favorite way to catch bucketmouths are on top water flies in the evening or...
