Re: wich line works best?

The Rio Grand lines are also 1/2 line weight *heavier* than marked. That may have been a factor in your friends improved casting. I have a couple Rio Grand lines and like them a lot, but like the...

Re: Everything is Relative! E=MC2

Well, I can't cast them into the next time zone but I have a little Scott F 6'6" 2 wt, a Kettle Creek Riffle Glas 5'11" 3 wt, and a 6'9" bamboo Fitch Purist 2/3 wt, and I can push all three of them...

Re: Do U use protection?

I had my first bout with skin cancer in January. I rarely burn and I almost always wear a watch, so what happens?

Apparently, on those few occasions each year when I don't wear a watch I get...

Re: Everything is Relative! E=MC2

I'll try not to make my comments overly zealous :D:D



I understood the "fact" to be that a rod is designed "correctly" if it can cast the line weight for which it is designated to cast. This...

Re: Rod Weight Question

I'm with Sasha on this one. If you're regularly fishing 3x, 4x, 5x, or even lighter tippet, your tippet will break *long* before you stress a UL rod to the point of breaking. A heavier rod does...

Re: Taking Good Photograph of Panfish/Bass

Hooking, playing, netting, beaching, lipping, holding in your hand, unhooking, and yes--laying a fish on the ground can all damage a fish. Yet we all have to use our judgment... or take up golf. :-)...

Re: Taking Good Photograph of Panfish/Bass

I have a TZ5 which is a slightly newer version of your camera. I use the default (Intelligent) metering mode, set the exposure comp to -1.

I've been very happy with the camera.

Re: Reel change today!

I really like the rod! It's a blast with a fish on and I've taken some pretty decent bass in open water, a few trout, and a ton of bream. I like the sensitivty of the tip as well.

Re: Taking Good Photograph of Panfish/Bass

I usually underexpose by 1 f-stop (I use exposure compensation on my point & shoot, and manual mode on my DSLR). A lot of my pics of fish come out washed out if I trust the metered setting.

Re: Reel change today!

I alternate between two BBS I's and a CFO on my 1 wt Superfine. The BBS I balances the rod better than the CFO but the CFO looks and sounds pretty cool. Both are great reels.

Re: I dont quite understand the reasoning behind SAGE'S BASS ROD..........

Tie something big and furry on, like a big Dahlberg. That's one of the things that impresses me most about the rod. It doesn't feel heavy but it can still turn over a very large fly.

Re: I dont quite understand the reasoning behind SAGE'S BASS ROD..........

I have the Smallmouth version and really like the way it handles. I also have a Sage XP 9' 7wt, and to me the XP is more tiring to cast. It's hard to explain but I can sidearm 'flick' 40-50' casts...

Re: 2 wt fly line

Yeah, I think you're right about the peach and Clear Creek being similar. And I know what you mean about the confusion--Cortland has so many variations of their lines now it's hard to keep them...

Re: 2 wt fly line

I use a WF 444SL line on mine, but I just checked and it looks like they don't sell it in a 2 weight any longer.

My understanding of the Clear Creek is that it's a 444 line with a longer level...

Re: Okay, this is embarrassing...

Thanks! I'm thinking about putting together a new line of "minnow rods". #0000 weight seems a little heavy--I might have to go with a -1 weight and a hook size a little smaller than 32's. Golden...

Re: Okay, this is embarrassing...

It does look very much like the fish in the picture, but it's a species we don't have here in Texas, although, judging from the attainable size, I wish we did! :)

"Bream", in Texas anyway, seems...

Re: Okay, this is embarrassing...

Thanks! I'm just not used to seeing "bait" that big :smile: I just looked it up and the Texas state record for a Golden Shiner is just over 8 oz. I might have to go trophy hunting :wink:

Re: 1st post, looking for urban fishing in North Texas

Thanks for the welcome Frank!

Hi Bryant,

Thanks for the reply! I'll have to plead ignorance here and ask what the "214" is? Checking out the Dallas Fly Fishers meetings sound like a good plan. Do you have some specific...

This is my first post and I'm hoping to get some help finding a few urban creeks or ponds around Plano/Frisco/McKinney in North Texas.

I moved up here after spending 12+ years in the Austin...
