Re: Need to find a new pack

I use the pack as storage for items I don't need immediate access to. Rain jacket, snacks, extra fly box, etc. When I'm thirsty I just reach behind me and grab the bottle. By loosening the...

Re: Need to find a new pack

The Nimbus with suspenders worked great. I wore it all week, fishing about 7 hours per day. The lumbar belt on this pack is much improved over previous designs. Very comfortable. Saved my lower...

Re: Has anyone used the "Fas-snap " fly attach?

Hemostat knot (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDUm9iZi4qg)

Re: Allen Trout Reel Clearance!

I don't know what they would do to improve on an already great product. I love mine.

I hope entirely new and entirely updated doesn't translate into an entirely new higher price.

Re: Which pack?

Had a waterdance but gave it away. It was ok but was heavy even when empty. That flip down fly tray was more gimmick than useful. Plus where to hang the net?

Currently looking at the...

Wow! This knot is greatness. Especially for us old guys with fat shaky fingers. Thanks Dave. I've got it down to about 5 seconds after threading the eye. Now I need something just as fast and...

Re: Vest, Lanyard or Chest Pack?

I've used vests, fanny packs, daypacks, shoulder bags, lanyards alone and in different combinations. Having an arthritic neck and shoulders doesn't make it any easier.

Best combination for me...

Re: Just bought Korkers, need help.

Hows the sizing on the 3.0's? Have they changed the rule of going up a size? Last time I tried on the Korkers I just couldn't hit the sweet spot of fit. Seems the 11's were too tight and the 12's...

Re: Wading boots?

Getting Korkers myself based on the ability to change out soles. Probably go with the Redsides though. While the lacing system on the Chromes is no doubt convenient, I prefer the simplicity of...

Before this gets off track and turns into a political thread I'll just weigh in.

Re: Release your trout gently

What kind of maniac drives 75mph down a fishery road? Most fishery roads I've been on I wouldn't even drive at 40mph. 75mph is insane.

I release my catch with the maximum gentleness. ...

Re: Release your trout gently

I carry a slingshot and shoot, err.. release, them upstream from my location so they can slowly drift back by and I can catch them again. ;)
