Fishing in Acadia NP

My wife and I will be in Acadia in late July. This isn't a fishing trip (at least in her mind :) ), but I will have few rods with me. I'm not set up for salt water, but I noticed that there are a...

Re: Fishing with older rods

I started fly fishing about 6 years ago using a Cabela's graphite rod--never could get that rod to work for me. Started looking around for a different rod and fell into the vintage fiberglass rod...

Re: Boot waders, Boots, neoprene booty, something else?

I hated the one time I wet waded in sandals. Had to stop continually to get small stones out.

I use a high-top white water rafting shoe when wet wading. The upper is neoprene and seals around my...

Re: Boot waders, Boots, neoprene booty, something else?

As a fellow Wisconsinite, I use both stockingfoot waders (with separate boots), and wet wading. Depends on time of year and the water I'm fishing. A lot of our spring creeks can be quite cold year...

Re: fit over polaroid glasses

I've got a pair of photochromic (amber) cocoons. I find them to have good clarity. I find them better than the straight amber pair I used for years--easier to see in low light conditions, but darken...

Re: Do you like to fish alone?

In the five years I've been fly fishing, I've fished with other people once (last year). This was as a favor to a non-fishing friend who had a west-coast friend that had never been small creek...

Re: Age of folks on the forum

59. Got interested in fishing 5 years ago, and decided fly fishing looked challenging enough to keep me interested for a long time. So far, looks like a great decision.

Re: Graywolf custom rods?

I have two rods from Shane. Both are fantastic builds and great rods. My wife had him build me a 7' 3wt Ijuin Yomogi with a stacked bamboo seat. As she puts it "It's #$%^ beautiful"

I also have...

Re: Wading Shoes

VTD

I've ordered a bag of the kold kutter studs to stick in my wet wading boots. From the reviews I've read, I think they'll do the job.

Re: Wading Shoes

Thanks for the help. I think I'd rather be safe than sorry (falling hurts too much--or so, I've heard :) ) so I'm going to stud up my wet wading shoes.

Re: What Did You Buy Today?

Location doesn't matter; bourbon is legally defined by it's corn content (minimum of 51%) and aging process (new, burnt, american white oak barrels).

Re: Buy JUST a rod sock???

I've bought 5 or 6 socks from here. All have been very well made. My only (very, very minor) complaint is that I think the ties are too long. But I solve that problem by trimming them down to the...

I currently have 5 glass rods and one graphite (which I haven't used in 2 years). I use glass for trout, bass, panfish. I, personally, find glass suits my natural casting stroke better than most...

Re: Who has good hook prices?

I like J. Stockard house-brand hooks (made in S. Korea). I've found them to be sharp, well made and a decent price. They do run a few sales during the year.

Re: Parts for Daiwa SF 706 Fly Reel?

I, too, love these reels. I do have the SA (456) version that I dropped and broke the foot off. The outside lever on it looks the same as on my Daiwa 706 reels. Send me a pm with your address...

Re: What reel on a fiberglass rod?

I love both my 375 and my 373. The 375 gets used on my Fenwick FF75 (7 1/2' 5wt); the 373 gets used on my Ijuin Yomogi 7" 3wt. These are great looking, simple little reels.

Re: Fiberglass fly rods?

If you decide custom, take a look at the Ijuin Yomogi (7' 3wt or 7'6" 4wt--I might have the length wrong on the 4wt).

I have the 7' 3wt built up by Shane Gray (Graywolf Rods). It was a birthday...

Re: Looking to get into some new glass

I've got a 7' 3 piece Yomogi (built by Shane Gray). The price might be above your price point at this point, but this is a great rod. It's slower than the Kabuto and just seems to cast itself. Rig it...
