Re: Fly gear prices back in the old days.

Of course one way to look at it, what else can you buy, use on pretty much a daily basis for 50 or 65 years, then sell it for more than you originally paid for it. I know this is certainly true for...

Re: Fly gear prices back in the old days.

Not sure how representative these prices were, but deals could be had.

I bought a new Leonard Duracane rod for $175 back in the late 70's. When my son was born in 1985, I bought two new Hardy...

Re: What is this? (Hardy)

Google Center Pinning. It's a method to achieve very long, fairly drag free drifts when fishing rivers usually using a bobber/float. Was fairly popular for Great Lakes steelheading a while back. ...

Re: Another reasonably price fly reel about to come to market.

When it comes to Medalist reels, I've often said it is hard to name another product that you can buy, use daily for 60 or 70 years, and sell it for considerably more than what you paid for it. Maybe...

Re: When the fishing ends

Re: Tenkara Introduction

Actually once you figure out using a lilian, it's alot more straight forward, easier, and quicker to use than would a loop.

As you've come to find, there are at least a few more preferred line...

I'm not personal friends with Joe, but if you do a google search on Joe Messinger and Morgantown WV you should find at least a few leads in getting ahold of him.

Re: Steelhead and salmon in eastern Wisconsin

I don't know anything about fishing in Wisconsin. From a Michigan perspective, late Sept would be at least a couple weeks early if you wanted to target steelhead. On a normal year, the salmon would...

Re: Suggested patterns for a new tier?

If you like things that sparkle, head over to a fabric (sewing) store and get some sparkle organza. It comes in a ton of colors, if you buy a fraction of a yard, it will last you a lifetime. It's a...

Re: Messinger/Arbogast Frog Research

Have you tried to contact Joe Jr ? I met him a long while back. He was a fairly young guy back then, or course, so was I. Last I knew, he lived in Morgantown West Virginia

Re: Suggested patterns for a new tier?

Using foam is alot of fun. It's not particularly classical when it comes to flies, but it's cheap, easy and effective. A great source for foam is to go the the local dollar store and buy a pair of...

Re: Musky on Fly Near Traverse City ?

If you have your heart set on catching muskies, if it were me, I'd head to Lake St Clair. It's big water and you probably will need a guide, there are at least a couple of guides who specialize in...

Re: New to fly fishing

For what it's worth. I'd target primarily smallmouth, they are ideally suited for presentations with a fly rod. Yellow perch, not so much. Not to say they can't be caught, but come August they...

Re: Why do I have all this stuff?

Here is the sum total of what I carry when I fish. I am fishing waters I know real well, so if I'm expecting a certain hatch I'll add a few flies to my box (just in case). But 90% of the time I...
