Re: "God" is "Dog" spelt backwards?

Fred, I know a dyslexic agnostic who lies awake at night and wonders if there's a dog.

Re: Favorite Movie

Oh man, too many favourites to list here. A bunch of them have already been mentioned--some good movies in this thread.

Re: Able nipper, what kind of Zinger?

Just use a piece of paracord to make your own lanyard. You'll never lose your nippers unless your head comes off.

I can't wait until someone starts the Abel zinger thread.

Re: Too good a deal to pass up

I just picked up two Sage rods on closeout, an 8 wt. Xi3 and a 6 wt. VXP. Both were over 33% off and were just too good a deal to turn down. As I often say, the gods were screaming in my ears!

Re: Is it possible to enjoy fly fishing when you catch no fish?

I always say, there's a reason we call it "fishing" and not "catching".

There is a grain of truth to the old saying: a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

And, to paraphrase...

Re: Vintage heavier-duty reel?

That's a beautiful reel, Dave--what is that?

Mark, I like Ross Reels--I fish with a Rhythm, a CLA, and a Momentum--and those older models are excellent as well. You might also want to consider a...

Re: Sage Flight opinions

Welcome to the forum.

I've got two Flights, 6 and 8 weights, and I really like them. I also got mine on closeout buys, which is how I buy most of my rods. I've used the 8 weight for salmon and...

Re: Are you a thread killer?

I've got blood on my hands from killing a few threads. If you're going to post on an internet forum, then you're going to kill.

That said, I predict this thread will have a long life, maybe even...

Re: You have to see one of these fires to understand.

I sympathize. Here in the NWT we're having one of the worst year for forest fires in recent memory, almost 200 burning right now. The one and only highway into Yellowknife has been closed on and...

Re: G. Loomis NRX 8/9 Spey

Re: Laces vs BOA

Good old laces for me, for the reasons others have mentioned. The BOA system just seems too gimmicky to me, and I'm not yet convinced that the system will last or work consistently in the long run. ...

Re: So many choices for Breakfast.

Apple crisp sounds really good for breakfast. Or any time, really.

Best corned beef hash: Bamboo Cafe, Haines, Alaska. You get it as a side instead of bacon or sausage.

Re: BVK vs. VXP vs. Response vs. Imperial

I have the VXP in an 8 weight and love it. It'll throw streamers or other heavy stuff no problem. And they're going on sale now, including at cabelas, so there's that.
