Re: $2.00 Seine Net

"Handbook of Hatches" was the first fly fishing book that I read. I felt that it gave me a clear understanding of what I was getting into. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

I live on a small lake, 70' from my back door with small panfish. The Atlantic Ocean is 4 miles and the Everglades are 10 miles away. Trout? Forget about it, I'm near Miami.

However, the Swift...

Zingers or Retractors?

I use "Tie Fast" brand zingers. I have tried other brands & found them too weak. The "Tie Fast" are strong & of high quality.

They are also stronger than the built-in retractor on my Cabelas...

Re: How small is too small for a Wooly Bugger?

I've never considered tying buggers that small, but I can picture them using ostrich or cactus chenille. I have a lot of ostrich, hmmmm.

Re: TFO Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series 8wt and 12wt rods?

I had a TiCrX 5wt and it was a broomstick to me. I gave it away to one of my sons. For him, the price was right.

But for fighting game fish, that's probably it's forte.

Re: Fly boxes ?

I really like the C&F boxes best out of several I've tried. Sturdy, waterproof, easy to open but still secure. Now I just buy those, but for different size flies. I even have one for saltwater flies....

Re: Rio Gold fly line at over 50% off

I ordered WF-5-F line. I generally like lines with long rear tapers. They seem less likely to hinge when I have a lot of line out for a long cast. Mend easier too.

Re: Proper Reel for hardy 9ft6wt Zenith

I have a Hardy DD6000 that I use on a 9' 5wt rod (not a Zenith).
Balances perfectly.
