Re: How many of you have broken rods while casting?

I had one snap off just below the joint between the second and third section of a 4 pc 5/6 wt rod. I was also casting for bluegills, with a small BHWB. I didn't hit anything with that cast, but I...

Those that came to the vinyard at the end of the day received the same pays as those that came in the morning.

Re: what do you think of carp.

I don;t see why people get excited about catfish; they always seem to taste muddy to me. But I've had carp, taken from clear clean trout streams, that when smoked by someone that knows what they're...

Re: Fly suggestions/advice

If your lake has murky or dingy water, such as we have on many of our Tennesee lakes, you may have better luck with streamers than with surface flies. Cousers are very good and versatile, but I'd...

Re: Multi-species warmwater fishing

Wooly Buggers in Black, Olive, or White are the ticket on Old Hickory. Also Green and White Clousers. (All these, other than the White Bass, Skipjack Shad, and Sauger, were caught while targeting...

Re: bluegill rod

On calm days I use an 8 ft 4 wt; on windier days I use an 8.5 ft 5/6 wt. I usually cast a weighted Wooly Bugger under a fairly large foam indicator, to keep the fly at the right depth. Our lake...

Re: Line recommedations

I haven't tried as many lines as you more experienced guys, but I thought my Cortland 555 was very good, until I bought a 5 wt and a 6 wt Rio Gold when they were on sale last spring. Man, I love...

Re: leader/tippet length for trout

I frequently over-line a rod by one or at most two weights; using an 8 wt line on a 3 wt rod might be asking for trouble. If you keep casts very sort, though, you might get by.

I have a 6.5 foot...

Re: Multi-species warmwater fishing

I love it (no I really don't) when I'm flyfishing from shore at the local lake and someone comes up and says "I didn't know they have trout in this lake".

I've caught Drum, Catfish, Largemouth,...

Re: Fly Fishing Boats?

The boat was rock solid, but you can see in the pic that the current isn't that strong.

Looking at this pic, I think I was wrong about the non-duck model. That's a lot of stuff he has in there,...

Re: Fly Fishing Boats?

A good friend of mine (president of our local Fly Fishing club) has a RiverHawk B-52 (not the Duck version) and absolutely loves it. I've seen three people standing and casting out of one on one of...

Great Walleye, Dan!

Here's a link to a little video of my daughter on her 4th fly fishing outing, her first in over 5 years, and her first using a sink tip line. She learned fast!

Re: Fly Fishing Boats?

I Like the SOT Kayak, but I use it for transportation only. As Frank said, it's just too uncomfortable to cast from that possion for long. If your kayak doesn;t have a rudder, it can be very...

Re: Greatest Bream Fly

For years I always used foam spiders or the smallest popper I could find. One day someone convinced me to use a hare's ear or similar nymph on a dropper below the popper. I caught 80% of the fish...

Re: Chasers no takers?

The particular fly is a size 6 white Wooly Buger, so it has a farily long marabou tail. One fly caught 20 trout last week, and lost several others. By the 20th fish the hackles were ripped off the...

Chasers no takers?

Lately I've had a lot of trout chasing my white streamers but not hitting it. Sometimes as many as three at a time would come rushing up and then stop just before the fly. Many I "hook" get off and...

Re: What is the best single piece of advice you would give beginners?

Don't let Perfect be the enemy of Good.

A few classic flies, like the Bead Head Wooly Bugger, Hares Ear, Elk Hair Caddis, etc got to be classics because they flat out work. I've wasted lots of...

Re: Please help me figure this out

If the air is full of flies, does that mean the water is full of emergers? Maybe the fish are gorging on the nymphs below the surface.
