I've got a 9+" section of drain pipe, pretty light actually. Might be 4" by 10' from Lowes. I used to use this, but went back to just hanging my assembled rods from the coat hangers in my mini van. I...

Re: need some rod and reel opinions fellas

Your set up looks great. Haven't used either.

I was into setting up a ultralight 3 weight recently & came across these reels.

We bought 2 Cabelas Traditional IIIs and 1 Cabela's TLr Fly Rod this past week for 50% off. Gave the L-Tech Fly Rod a toss too when we were there, and had it been on sale, it would have been hard to...

Re: 2nd week with the Fly Rod

Glad to hear you are enjoying it. My kids fly fish with me. They got bit by the fishing bug at an early age too, and progressing into fly fishing just happened naturally. One completely turned to the...

Re: Guide Costs and Gratuities

I couldn't agree more. They earn the tip & on top of it, they pay taxes on that tip whether they get a tip or not. If you don't tip those workers, they'll still pay the 20% worth of taxes from your...

Re: Guide Costs and Gratuities

When I used to use guides regularly, I typically have given at least $50. Most of my guides have gotten $250-450 for half a day. I'll go up beyond 20% gratuity if they have treated me great & done a...

Re: really awesome video on mousing

Re: New fly rod.

I don't think a 6 wt is enough, at least for the carp we fish for. They are a nasty nasty fight. 8wt OR even higher. I got a 9 wt after hooking into one with my 8 wt Orvis Helios & realizing it...

Re: Guided trips and fishing spots

I'm not a guide.

With that said, I've only had one guide ask me to not tell anyone else about his spot. I agreed, and I have fished that run many times. Never told a sole. What was great about...

20lb OR 30lb Dacron backing on Salmon rig

We fish for salmon here in Michigan on the Betsie River, and there are plenty of logs to get hung up on. Anyways, just wondering if using 30lb backing would be better/best for a 8wt Salmon set up?

Re: A vest with a fish pouch too...

I remember this. I actually grabbed some ferns & dip them into the cold river and tucked them into my present vest to help keep the fish cool till I got back.
