Re: Best way to travel with gear

Talk about a thread revival here.

Re: First time failure

Just as long as you didn't do what I did. Which was catch my ear with a fly. Luckily I crushed the barbs down on all my flies.

Re: Best way to travel with gear

I just got a chance to look at the cabelas rods. I am going up there soon so I will take a look at them. They are a very good possibility at this point

Re: Best way to travel with gear

Yeah the 4 piece is the only way I can go and take my own rods. I will look into the orvis rods. But they are probably a tad out of my price range. The ugly stick is $40 so I consider that fairly...

Re: Best way to travel with gear

While I still have a lot of time to think about it. My father and mother said that I should just buy them down there. I don't really want to do that but they are saying that unless I can get a 3 or 4...

Re: Best way to travel with gear

hhmm. You all bring up excellent points. The farthest south I've fished is ocean city Maryland and I stayed on the beach and fished every night off the beach. I haven't got the slightest clue as to...

Re: Best way to travel with gear

Yeah that's the thing. All 3 rods are 8 or 9 feet long and two piece. I will also be bringing more than flies. I'd have surf casting rigs and lures and the hooks on them are big. But those would...

Best way to travel with gear

Re: Would you dare to cast a fly there?

Nice, I know I've tried to fish (and continue to) a tiny Creek. It's not even 9' across at its widest. But there's a ton of trout in there. I haven't caught one yet but I'm pretty sure I've spooked...

Re: "Road Kill," now what?

I have only hit a opossum and a few squirrels. I had a close call with a deer though. He was a big buck. The kind I'd love to see during hunting season. But my father's truck is called the "bird...

Re: Fly Fishing The Rivers of Alaska;

Some day go to Alaska. I've always wanted to go. Even before I got into fly fishing, but fly fishing makes me want to go even more.

Re: Does line price dictate quality?

Well I ended up getting rio gold line. I went to cabelas and wanted the airflo but they stopped carrying it in the stores. Why I have no idea, pretty dumb if you ask me. So I ended up getting the rio...

Re: Best rod for a kid

That's a good point about the length to keep the fly's away from their eyes and face.

I will check out cabelas right now.

Best rod for a kid

I am wanting to buy my brother a fly rod for Christmas. He is 8 years old and he has fished with me since he was 4. I know that I could get him a similar set up to what I have (cabelas prestige) but...

Re: Demon line!

This story made me laugh. Mainly because its happened to me before with some 6lb test braided line. The spool slipped out of my hand and it rolled down my driveway. Tangling itself all which ways in...

Re: Does line price dictate quality?

As far as how much backing in length I dont know. But when all the line is on the reel it fills it right to the top of the spool. Its almost as if there was more line it'd hit the little cover thats...

Re: Fly rod storage

I finally got around to taking the line off the reel and getting to washing it. I noticed that it wants to stay coiled up. Its at room temp (68*) and even if I tug on it it goes back to its coiled...

Re: Just Curious: How Many Fly Rods Do you Own

I only have 1. A cabelas prestige 5wt. I am looking into getting a 3wt maybe in 7' length for the smaller streams near me. My current 9' is just too long for some of them.

Re: Does line price dictate quality?

Perhaps orange isnt the best color then. I can see how certain colors would allow more of that color to reflect into the water. Maybe the better idea (from reading your posts) is to get a good line...

Re: Does line price dictate quality?

I like orange just for the visual aspect of it (person preference) but I do see what you mean by the fish seeing it. So maybe in that case what is the "best color"?
