re: Stripping basket for kayak fishing

I'm curious what happened to this tread. I posted a reply with photos, that disappeared later in the day. I now see that Rip Tide's reply is blank. Can anyone explain why this happened?

Re: stand up paddle boards?

One thing that may not be obvious is that your feet will almost always get wet with a SUP, which is not the case with a kayak. Just something to keep in mind.

Re: Deciding on a New Reel.

The Cabelas Prestige Premier fly reel is normally $90, but on sale now for $45. It's a cast reel, but should be more than adequate for your needs. The Orvis Clearwater is also a cast reel.

I use the same technique as Rip Tide to make poppers except I use flip flops that cost $1.00 a pair at the Dollar Store. A pair of flip flops will make a lot of poppers. Those in the attached photo...

Re: Kayak questions

I have a Native Slayer and thoroughly enjoy it. Personally feel a SOT is the way to go for most people because of the stability, ease of entry even in open water and it can't be sunk. Assuming you...

Re: Fly tying kit or Buy decent vice?

Agree with the other responders that you should buy a vise instead of a kit. I found the Fly Fish Ohio Vise Review to be a big help in deciding what vise to buy.

Re: Show off your kayak

Agree 100% with Rip Tide. Safety isn't an issue if you use a SOT (sit-on-top) kayak and always wear a life vest. The SOT kayaks bob like a cork and can't be sunk.

I also found it a bit more...

Re: Dubbing tool

Loved your response Flytire. Just not sure if you are still looking for the "right" dubbing tool, creating homemade gifts for fly tying friends, or starting a collection of creative dubbing tools.

If the fly hook has a big enough eye to accommodate two passes of line, use the Trilene knot to attach the fly to the leader. I use it all the time, except for flies with very, very small hook eyes....
