Re: Rods You Just Can't Part With

My Winston TMF, seems like all my best days on a number of different streams have been with that rod in my hand

Re: Moving to Portland

Can't speak much to the west side of the Cascades but the Deschutes is 2 hours from Portland and the Metolious and Crooked are about 3 hours. If you can swing it, leave Saturday morning (I found the...

Re: Tipping a Casting Instructor

Craig, great stuff thanks. It'll be a bit chilly next weekend so I'll bring the coffee. I've been flyfishing for 10 years or so and have developed some bad habits (including the occasional wicked...

Tipping a Casting Instructor

For 2015, I've resolved to work on my casting. I'm lining up a casting lesson with a Master Casting Instructor. What is the standard/norm for tipping casting instructors? Thanks,

Eric

Re: I made the leap, could use some help

Mike,

I quit 20 years ago after smoking a pack a day for 5 years. Good on you man. You'll still get the urge, but they'll be fewer and far between as time passes. What I noticed about my smoking...

Re: 2015 Yellowstone Angler 5-Weight Shoot-Out

While I would like them to tweak the shoot-out to let rod companies submit a line of their choice for testing their rods, don't get me wrong, my hat is off to Yellowstone Angler for doing the...

Re: 2015 Yellowstone Angler 5-Weight Shoot-Out

I suggested this after previous iterations of the Shoot-Out but I think it would be helpful if they allowed the rod companies to submit a line for their particular rod. I know they are striving for...

Re: Oh boy Abel

My apologies, I was inarticulate. I should have said "we were discussing the new Abel sealed-drag reels and the discontinuance of the Abel Creek."

Re: Oh boy Abel

I was at a local shop test-casting a rod and the guy from the shop and I got to discussing the discontinuance of the Abel Creek and the Abel sealed-drag reel. He mentioned that Abel is "killing it"...

Re: What fly to use in a random river?

I'm with Jerry, on the day you described and assuming it's a river/stream, I would opt for a #14 Parachute Adams

Re: Are rodmakers changing their product lines a little too often?

I'm with James. As I look at my 20 or so (too many) rods, there's only one rod for which I paid full retail. The rest were discontinued closeout rods.

I know the new rods represent cutting...

Re: Bitterroot, "Epic MT" video

That's awesome, having lived and fished (including twice on the Bitterroot with a native Missoulian) in Montana for 4 years, it brought me back.

Re: 5wt??

As I look at my quiver (way too many rods), I realize I fish a 4wt whenever I can, a 6wt when I must. Just for reference, I have ten 4wts, three 5wts, and two 6wts.

If I started over, I would...

Re: Abel Creek Discontinued?

I thought the same thing. In fact, a couple of years ago I think Abel did plan to discontinue the Trout but due to the outcry, they kept it. Now they are discontinuing the Creek even though it...

Abel Creek Discontinued?

I just went to the Abel website looking for Creek line capacities and the Creek isn't listed in their current lineup. Has the Creek been discontinued?

Re: New Mexico Fly Fishing

Thanks everyone for the replies. If the move does happen, we could live in either Albuquerque or Sante Fe. The bride said schools would be the deciding factor between the two but if it's a toss-up,...
