Re: LL Bean canvas/leather 3 tube rod bag.

Re: Filson Vests

I enjoy my Filson Foul Weather Vest and have found myself grabbing it often for quick evening jaunts to the river this year. Like all Filson products, it has a very "old school, tough-as-nails" feel...

Re: Eat that fish, or release it?

While I probably release around 95% of the trout and salmon I catch each year, I have no problem keeping these fish to eat on occasion. Unfortunately, many fly fisherman have bought into the idea...

Re: Favorite number of rod pieces?

This is a great poll...its interesting to see where people's preferences lie on this. I rarely fly much anymore (would probably have voted 4 piece if that was the case). With that said, I'm really...

Re: Best starter rod outfit

I would absolutely recommend purchasing something from LL Bean when you're looking at lower priced starter outfits. If, for whatever reason, it doesn't last as it should-or you aren't happy with...

Re: Gotta Love Bluefish

Yes they are! We see Blues up here from time to time- no doubt...big difference though from where you're located year in and year out.

Re: Need Advice: Reel for 9 wt

I'd recommend a used Hatch Finatic at that price point- call the factory if you are concerned about the warranty- I have a feeling they would help you out (if you ever needed it) even if you are the...

Re: Gotta Love Bluefish

Very nice Rip Tide! Blues get a bad rap sometimes, but I really miss the days when they were thick here in Maine...the early 90's were a lot of fun up here with them!

Re: Fly line..

That's great- I love that ad!!! I'm a pretty big fan of Airflo lines nowadays...seem to last and perform best in my opinion. NONE of them are cheap however!

Re: is Simms insane?

Keep in mind that while many products that Simms sells under their brand name are, in fact, made in the USA...many are not. This is a lot to get into, but I can tell you that I switched to Patagonia...

Re: Best fly reel $100-200
