Re: Scott s4s7or 8 wt for general bonefishing in the Bahamas

If you already have a 9, then I would think that the 8 would be somewhat redundant. I'd lean towards the 7 to give you a little wider range. But then you probably are already thinking like that, thus...

Re: Scott s4s7or 8 wt for general bonefishing in the Bahamas

I was very happy with my S4s 8wt when fishing Long Island last year. If your question is Which do I get?, I'd suggest that the 8wt would handle the wind better.

Re: St. Croix Imperial vs. Avid

It occurs to me that I should mention how I came to acquire my Imperial. I went to the shop with $700 dollars in my hot little hand, completely ready to bring home a 5wt G2. Jim nodded his head, but...

Re: St. Croix Imperial vs. Avid

My gut feel is that the Avid would more closely replicate the G2 action (not sure which Winston you have), though I have not had my hands on that particular St. Croix. I do have a 5wt 8'6" Imperial...

Re: Best nippers?

Picked up a pair of the Simms yesterday and am impressed.

A factor worth mentioning is whether or not you will be using your nippers in the salt. A lot of the cheaper options suggested here will...

Re: new to fly fishing need advice on a setup

Having just spent a few days fishing out of SPI on the Laguna Madre, I can say with complete confidence that there are no redfish in southeast Texas. There is, however, lots and lots (and lots) of...

Re: What length bass leader

I think I've just been called a redneck. :upset:

Luckily, it's true.

Re: What length bass leader

I use 7-9ft of straight 15lb floro for most of my bass fishing. Start about 9ft and let it shorten with fly changes. When it gets to be about 7ft, re-add a couple feet or start over if the leader is...

I couldn't have said this better myself. Agree 100%.

Re: Redington Sonicdry Waders, Your Opinion?

I'm a big Redington fan. As has been said, I think they put out a quality product at a reasonable price point.

I don't own any of their waders, however, only because I can't seem to kill my G3s.

Re: Short 6 wt

I overline mine a step with a 7wt front-loaded bass taper. But we may not be talking apples to apples. My Predator is the old model; the brown, pre-Sage acquisition (I think), version. Liked it so...

Re: Short 6 wt

A second vote here for the Predator. The 7'10" 6wt is a fun little rod. I use it when wading for river largemouths, throwing medium-sized clousers and poppers. Handles the flies and the occasional...

Re: Sealed Drag Reels

Interesting. Yours is the second comment I've read this week on the possibility that textured lines might be spooking bonefish. I give a LOT of credence to "keen observation." My first thought was...

Re: Sealed Drag Reels

The NRX looks inviting, but I'm mounting mine on a Scott S4s #8 and loading it with Chard's Grand Slam. A sweet setup, for sure.

Re: Sinking line/tip question

The website does indeed say that the S3 is 315 grains, but the labeling on the box that I'm holding says 330. I'm not sure which it is - or that the 15 grain range is a very big deal.
