Re: Best Insect Repellent?

Re: Fly Fishing Near Indianapolis

I've hit West Park in Carmel quite a few times, location is a little farther north though, 116th and Shelbourne. There is quite a bit of cover and I've caught some decent largemouth there, but it's...

Re: Megan Boyd movie on Netflix Instant

Thanks for the tip, will have to check that out. Big fan of the instant view on Netflix and always try to keep an eye out in their documentary sections for things like this. Any other good fishing...

Re: Fly Fishing Near Indianapolis

@ pjcalla, great idea on the updates/reports. On that note, a little farther out than local waters but I gave the stretch of the Big Blue River in Wilbur Wright SRA a try yesterday. It's probably one...

Re: Little Elkhart River - Northern Indiana

I'll mainly hit it off of 146th around town but my preferred stretch is up in Anderson at the park. Most of time I'll hit Geist in the kayak but checked that out last week and my usual put in spot...

Re: Anyone fish Isle Royale

Isle Royale is absolutely gorgeous. Spent a week hiking up there years ago, mostly around the shoreline and did a little canoeing through the smaller outer islands. The water was crystal clear and...

Re: Christmas list help.

Those Overlook chest packs from Umpqua have been catching my eye lately. Big +1 on the single malt suggestions too, anything Ardbeg puts out is worth sampling.

Re: First Fly Rod..

Been looking at that one myself, all the reviews seem great but have never had the chance to cast one. If you have opportunity to do so you should probably try out a few different rods before...

Orvis Encounter Rod/Reel outfit, any thoughts?

So I just couldn't resist stopping by the local Orvis on my way home this evening to look around for an 8-wt outfit. Last time I was in they had one of their Streamline combos marked down really low....

Re: I love CTs part II

Been reading your reviews on the CT's and decided to go for one in a 4wt, kicking myself now though as the Cabelas $75 sale apparently just ended (up to $99 now). Was there another retailer you know...

Re: What is important to you when buying gear?

For me, when considering large item purchases (fishing gear or otherwise), I tend to first look at versatility-how much use in different situations or applications can I get. Couple examples, for my...

Re: Who carries more than one rod while fishing?

Along the same line of multiple rods, do many of you bring multiple spools along to over/under line your rod? i.e. bringing an extra spool lined with a 4/5wt line to throw on a 6wt rod? Or vice...
