Re: 3D Printed Fly Reel

I spent a good portion of my career in the 3-D printing industry. The need for experienced trades people will not disappear. What most people don't realize is that the main utilization of 3-D...

Re: No need to buy a 5wt reel anymore...

Vulpes,

By coincidence, I was sent a link today for a $349 3-D printer (https://printm3d.com/). Don't know anything about the accuracy or reliability, but this is the lowest cost 3-D printer...

Re: Bad day to be a Bull Redfish

Amazing! Did you see the shark hit it or just felt it a sudden change?

Smile Re: 3D Printed Fly Reel

Any coincidence that your reel photos look identical to those posted by hokiehunter (http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/forums/general-discussion/365126-no-need-buy-5wt-reel-anymore.html)?

Re: No need to buy a 5wt reel anymore...

Unless you have steady use for a printer, you are better off having occasional prototypes made by a service bureau. Unless things have recently changed, "good" machines are still expensive, materials...

Re: New guy from North Dakota

Haven't lived in ND for years, but still visit family there every year. Not aware of any hot spots in Southwestern part of the state that would be worth a drive from Minot. Suspect you can do just...

Re: No need to buy a 5wt reel anymore...

Good conversation piece.

Do you know what process was used to make it? Looking at the surface texture, I'm guessing it was done by a Stratasys machine (fused deposition modeling). Were you...

Re: New guy from North Dakota

Welcome to the best fly fishing forum I'm aware of. I've only fly fished for about four years and I've learned a lot from the members of this forum.

I grew up in Southwestern ND and know it's not...

Re: Your experience with prismacolor markers?

I use Prismacolor and Copic markers to tint/color some synthetic materials (Pearl color Estaz and Palmer Chenille) and haven't had any problem with bleeding or fading.

Re: A couple of lines and some Tacky Fly boxes

Quick question on the tacky fly boxes, since I've been considering them. Did you not like them for some reason?

Re: I finally did it!

Congratulations! I did it couple of years ago and wish I could have done it sooner. Probably the biggest benefit is that now you can fish anytime during the week instead of on crowded weekends. ...

Re: Finally some Montana carp

Nice job!

Pound for pound a carp puts up a bigger fight than most freshwater fish I've caught. I'm still struggling to catch a carp this year. Not sure why, but anything I've tried in the past...

Re: Line snaps?

It's my perception that knots tied with only one pass of line through the eye of the hook are far more susceptible to breakage than a double pass. That's why I use the Trilene knot whenever I can...

Re: a few new carvings

Truly impressive carvings. Also enjoyed the pictures on your website.

Just curious, how many hours do you think you have invested in the brown trout? Seems like it would take a lot of time.

Welcome Vector.

There are members with far more experience than I, but I'll throw out a couple of suggestions anyway. If you strictly want to stay below $200, then two options are:
