Re: What materials are a must to begin tying trout flies

Anyone tried the C&F bobbin? If so, what are your thoughts on it? I know it is expensive...is it worth it or is the price a lot more than the product is worth?

Re: Orvis Battenkill or Lamson Guru?

Guru was voted Field and Streams reel of the year. I don't own any Lamsons currently but they do have several that catch my eye.

Re: what would you get next?

I have a 3 and a 5 wt. My next rod will either be a 4 or 6. Once I have these then the majority of my fishing needs will be covered. Now who wants to loan me a couple grand:D
