Re: Lets talk Furled Leaders

My favorite ones are the Feathercraft furled leaders. They turn over very well, and have a tiny little ring on the end that makes attaching and removing tippet very easy.

Cost of furled leaders...

Re: Do you tell?

I have two people I would tell. They are my regular fishing buddies and I can trust them not to blab far and wide. (plus, I'd probably be taking them there anyway.)

Other than them, no, I...

Re: Vest, Chest Pack, Lanyard, or Hip Pack?

I would recommend the LL Bean Rapid River Vest Pack

I own quite a few vests and fishing packs. I have three larger packs, and three vests, and a couple of small shoulder packs. The Rapid River...

Re: reel questions

If the Orvis Madison has "British Made" stamped on it, it's probably worth about $50.

Re: I received my Combo Kit in , now what?

You should already have a fly line

I googled the crystal river combo kit, and this is what it is supposed to include:

3-piece 8 foot fly rod
#6/7 weight rod and reel

Re: Franche-Comté (France)

How different. Here in the US, you are highly encouraged to catch and release.

I would also say that in the US, it is the pinnacle of cool to be a fly fisherman. :) :)

Fish with big teeth

Check out this fish that was caught in a local pond.

I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to try to remove a hook from its mouth.

Re: A better knot

Here is something that I use to tie my improved clinch knots:

I have my hemostat attached with a swivel so it will turn freely. I clamp the hook of the fly in the hemostat, thread the hook, then...

Sharkskin Guide Wear Update?

I've occasionally heard rumors about the new Sharkskin lines increasing wear on guides. It's never been first hand information, however. It's "I heard from someone that he knows someone who had his...

Re: Leaders and Tippet Material

Based upon Joni's recommendations, I've been using furled leaders and flouro tippet for a while now. I've been pretty happy with the way it casts and the way it fishes. It's not exactly what you'd...

Re: breathable waders and condensation

I was banned from FAOL, (and I'm proud of it.) I committed the unpardonable FAOL sin of recommending some gear made by a company (William Joseph) that was not a FAOL sponsor.

Re: breathable waders and condensation

No breathable waders will disperse moisture when they are under the water. If you are standing in a stream all day long, your waders won't "breathe" the moisture laden air into the creek. This is...

Re: Another Deckers Beauty

Pictures help me remember what I was doing. They also remind me of how big the fish really was (or wasn't)

They also are good for sharing with other people. When I saw the original poster's...

Re: Wearing your waders ?? Yes, or no

I wear them all year round.

The water here in the Colorado high country is COLD. I'm too much of a wimp to wet wade for very long, even in the summer time.
(and the cold water keeps me cool...

Re: Another Deckers Beauty

I take lots of pictures of fish out of water.

My rule of thumb is that I only take the fish out of the water for 20 seconds. Typically, I have the hook removed while the fish is still in the...

Re: Good short backpacking rod?

I own 3 March Brown rods.

I have their Hidden Waters rods in a 4 weight, 5 weight, and 8 weight.

Even though they are 7 piece rods, their casting actions are very smooth. I think they cast as...

Re: Just out of curiosity...

I don't use wool for anything other than my socks. It takes too long to dry out if it gets wet.

I wear polyester long underwear and fleece on the bottom, with polyester top and a softshell on top.

Re: Is Cabelas overpriced for fly fishing gear?

I think that Cabela's "house brand" stuff is usually very reasonable in price. Their fishing specific clothing, equipment, rods, etc. are pretty nice and very competitively priced.

As for the...

Re: How hardcore are you?

Except for winter, I'm fishing at least once a week, more likely 2-3 times a week when water levels are favorable, and I'm not a guide. Is that hard core?

Re: What I wish I knew before I spent the money...

William Joseph Fusion Vest.

It looks really cool, but I found it to be bulky, heavy, not that comfortable, and if you put a hydration bladder in the back, it rides up in the front.

Re: Right or left

I am right handed and have the reel set up for left hand retrieve. I find it easier to play the fish with my dominant hand and work the reel with my left hand.

Re: How many fish older bamboo fly rods?

It's my newest bamboo rod.

The rod is a 7"3' 3/2 for a 5 or 6 weight. As you might be able to tell from the pictures, it's a beautiful rod. It's made with alternating strips of blonde and flamed...
