Re: Brand New TFO Mangrove 9' 9wt

Re: Testing Kayaks for Flyakking

Re: Loomis GL3 and Pro4X

Never touched the GL3 but have a 6wt Pro4x and it's one of my best rods. Casts dries and streamers very well and has been my most versatile rod for trout and bass. I have to force myself to use my...

Re: Canoe vs Kayak vs Pontoon

Hi Bill, That Fisherman canoe is pretty wide and could be a challenge to track as a solo canoe on flat lake water with a breeze. The widest I'd go is 35" with the Heron, Aurora, or Solo Plus if you...

Re: Anchor rope?

So last Sunday my son and I were out slinging poppers and I hooked into a tree limb. Instead of pulling up the anchor to go retrieve the fly, I told my son to untie us and leave the rope in the...

Re: Watercraft Advice Needed

Todd, the block is just a standard roof top canoe carrying foam block that comes in a set of four. It just slips on and is great for holding flies at the ready (See pic below). I have no experience...

Re: Watercraft Advice Needed

That's a lot of questions but I'll add my 50 year old experience. I fly fish from a canoe just about every weekend and have found my Wenonah Heron is a great platform for solo and tandem fishing. ...

Re: What happened over the 4th of July weekend

Dam!! I thought you were going to say she was chucking streamers with a ten foot 8WT. Throw some ice on it and mend well. Good luck.

Re: Hot Weather Bass

Hi Mark, I'm no expert but I find that casting poppers into covered/shaded areas produces strikes. Usually overhangs and fallen trees under shade is where these guys hang out when it's hot and sunny....

Re: Solo canoe Fly fishing?

An anchor makes all the difference when fly fishing alone. Recommend using anything nontoxic and heavy that you won't be sorry to cut loose if it gets snagged.

Re: Solo canoe Fly fishing?

I love fishing in my canoe solo and tandem. I use a fifteen foot Heron which is flat bottom and although doesn't track great, it's very stable for casting. Usually my son goes with me and rows but I...

Re: Casting fatigue question

I do something similar to my elbow when casting heavy weight slow rods. It's like tennis elbow. You may want to look into wearing a thumb-wrist wrap that you can adjust the tension. sf

Re: Brand new Loop XACT 2 890-4

Loop is one of my favorite rods. What are you interested in for trades? Do you need a 6 wt?
