Vedavoo Sling Pack Arrived

Today I tried out the Vedavoo Tightline Sling Pack on the river for the first time. I was out for about six hours. So I thought I would write a brief review. There are in-depth descriptions and...

Re: Wow Patagonia (new Atom Stealth pack on the way)

I'm interested in the "sits on the wader adjuster" problem. I never thought of that. I guess that problem would also be greater or lessor depending upon how much stuff you have in the pack and how...

Re: I Want to Fish With These Guys!

I guess that is in New Zealand, but were they speaking Swedish? What a great piece.

And did anybody notice that the guy catching the most fish was wearing a Nascar hat?

Re: Cortland mini-head kit!

I'm interested in this too. I have never used a sinking tip, but it seems as if it would be easier to deal with than pinching on lead weights in terms of casting ease. Is that a fool's paradise? I...

Re: Kelly Galloup Article.

It may be that I entirely misunderstood you post in the first place, but I don’t think you would have been waving the NASCAR flag and plugging the national bass marketing campaign as a positive model...

Re: A kind and thoughtful gift

Great story. These rare moments of generosity and kindness are a blessing especially, when there is an element of someone else's span of time and memory. And for it to be this book...that's the...

Re: Savage River MD

I'm in Baltimore, so I haven't made it out to the Savage river, though we hear quite a bit about. The Gunpowder is only 25 minutes away, so I always end up there. Great looking fish. Looks like it...

Re: Not quite yet...

This is the Gunpowder river in Maryland, a tailwater of the Prettyboy reservoir dam. It is a gentle river for the most part except for its choke points, at which the rapids become very powerful and...

Re: Video History of the Adams Dry Fly

Before the 1930's all the commercial fly tiers at Hardy's in England worked without vises, doing everything in their hands, sitting at benches by light mostly coming in the windows. That's just how...

Re: Sling Packs-like the idea but.....

Re: Stream dynamics and geomorphology
