Re: Aluminum V-Hull on the River?

Throw a bow mount electric on the front and you will be fine. I'd be stuffed rowing a boat all day and try to fish as well.

Re: TFO reels? BVK?

Beautiful large arbor and very light reel, but the drag tension sucks.
I use mine for bass as I don't need to depend on the drag.

Re: Taylor Reels on the Forum

I have an Array 5/6 and it is one sweet reel.
I'm a great fan of a reel design that allows the spool to be removed and soaked in fresh water without dunking bearings.
The drag is extremely smooth...

Re: For bass?? Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series

I think once you find the right line and leader set up for your casting style and the fly's you wish to cast, most rods will come to life.

Good luck with it.

Re: 10wt for bass fishing?

I think the place you fish and the distance you need to cast these bulky fly's will dictate the rod weight for you.

If you are casting reasonable close a smaller weight rod with the right line...

Re: Favorite 8 weight bass flies

I agree, gurglers are great fish catchers and very easy to cast.
I don't mind these slider style bass flys either.

If it's not on top it's not on!
Good luck...

Re: New 8weight bass/pike line

OBS lines are great for short casts with big fly's and also great for long casts with smaller fly's.
The only issue I have is matching it to a certain rod.
Not all 8wt rods will feel comfortable...

Re: Redington Vapen or Redington predator?

Not cast the vapen, but I absolutely love my 8wt short predator.
If fishing to shoreline snags in close the 8wt rio outbound short is an awesome match for great accuracy with larger wind resistant...

Re: Triangle Taper....Jack of all Trades...Master of None???

I enjoy the TT lost tip in an 8wt for saltwater fishing. Nice line, needs a good stretch staight from the box. Slightly heavier than that stated IMO.
Casts very well.
Not good for short casts,...

Re: Line for #6 Ross Flystik.

I've been playing with lines on this rod and found that a #6 trout line with the level tip cut performs beautifully with bass fly's.

Some say this rod likes over lining, not me.
Everyone has...

Line for #6 Ross Flystik.

Hi all,

I seem to be having issues casting this rod with a #6 Rio smallmouth bass line.
It feels very guttles at any distance casting deerhair bugs.
Is this line too heavy for this rod?

Re: Australian Salmon

They are regarded as a pest of a saltwater fish, but great fun on the fly.

The fly they seem to like is just some white bucktail and a few strands of flash.
