I've only ever heard good things about Cutthroat leaders, both the people and the product, and they are a site sponsor, though I've never used them.

That said, I've been exclusively using using...

Re: What companys are fully made in america?

I'm guessing you mean the CT (i.e. Classic Trout) and the model that briefly replaced it, the Tempt... no? I thought all Redington rods were made in China.

Re: Hiking boots

As you've probably noticed, most hiking boots are designed to keep water out, which means they also keep water in.

The exceptions are either pretty cheap boots that don't offer much in the way...

Yeah, MRFC is one of the first places I check when I need something... or even if I'm not.

Re: Ski/Snowboard Rack for hauling rods...

Just bumping this because I'm still curious if anybody has tried this approach and met with rousing success, damnable failure, or some middling middle ground.

Re: Line & Leader suggestions for beginner

To start off with, I'll say that I don't have any experience fishing for carp, so take this with a grain of salt.

As far as leaders go, a lot of us have switched over to using furled leaders. ...

My sister lived in Gunnison for a number of years. I spent two summers there in my early twenties... but, alas, I'd not yet discovered fly fishing.

Re: Finally got around to tying a couple things...

All of the video tutorials on the Pink Squirrel use some kind of dubbing for the pink. It does look like a good way to go. Of course, when I bought the materials for it, I hadn't tied anything yet,...

Re: Finally got around to tying a couple things...

So far I'm having a bit of trouble finding that magical line between, that's not quite enough dubbing, and oh geesh, that's too much.

Re: browsing Cabela's and I have a question

I also wouldn't spend that much money on a pair of pliers. I do value quality tools, but it seems like too much. That said, my old man bought me a pair of aluminum fishing pliers for a Christmas...

Re: Rod & Reel Combo for a beginner

That's certainly a good choice, the Lamson Velocity is a reel you'll likely never feel the need to upgrade. Two things to keep in mind. The 1.5 is on the small for a 5wt, you'll only be able to get...

Hardy Marksman 2 on sale at Amazon

They have the 10' 6wt for $250, which seems like a very good deal, though not something I'm currently in the market for. They also have the 9' 6wt for $314...

so, like, heads up.

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

They still had the 8'6" listed on the site, but not on the drop down menu to add it to your cart. One of the ways that I was able to justify it in my mind was that it's different enough from my...
