Re: Looking to get into some new glass

IMO

The Orvis 7'6 4wt. is indeed the sweetheart of their line up. Since you have a generous budget it is indeed well worth the $$ over the Butterstick, which again imo is not the best production...

Feed them meat...

Haven't posted a report in some time. I've been tying up big meaty streamers lately and seemingly been on an anti-nymphing kick. I took a skunking last week so I derived a plan to fish a stretch of...

Re: So evidiently I can tie game changers really well but can't fish them....

What kind of line did you have spooled up on both outfits? Big, water retaining streamers imo need a short heavy head to turn them over and get them into the target zone quickly.

On my 7/8wt. I...

Re: My streamers won't swim or orient the way I want them.

Like Rip said... use a non-slip loop knot. This should take care of the "sideways" problem. As far as your streamers swimming "wrong side down", without enough caffeine in me and without a picture...

Re: Streamer junkies!

Indeed is really good stuff. Roll casts better than anything else I have tried, including Rio Outbound short. I have been either using a 9' Rio "Bass" leader 10lb. or a Rio Versi-Tip sinking leader...

Re: Crayfish Patterns?

Larry, that is a small lobster.

Our Ozark waters are full of crayfish. This is what I am tying up these days. I am hoping that the jig hook and dumb bell eyes makes this sit like a real craw in...

Re: What have you been tying today?

Yes it is "Cheech's Low Fat Minnow". I take absolutely NO credit for this design whatsoever.

Re: Itch's Trip Report

Itchy,

Looks cold, but good. It's been awhile since I was there but I really miss it. That Leprechaun was a little creepy. I hope they drink Fat Cow for St. Patty's day up there.

Re: Kabuto Glass rods

I owned a rod built on a 7'3 Kabuto blank. To me it was on the fast side of glass. Too fast, as it seemed to really like a 4wt. line in my hands. I have heard that the 8'0 5wt. is the sweetheart...

Re: Getting a 3 weight for streams and creeks. Fiberglass vs graphite

Welcome to the forum.

+1 on what everyone else said here. I personally don't fish the Roaring River, but what I have read is sound advice. Presentation trumps fly selection in most instances.
