Re: Abel, Ross, Orvis, Sage...wife is going to kill me sale :)

Your Superfine has received my interest, as I'm enjoying my 7' fullflex way too much. Maybe the tipflex would be just as much fun!!

PM sent.

Respects,
Richard

Re: Float Tube Worries

Yes, the very same. They were terrific on our 150 mile float trip, and very simple to set up, hardly any time involved. As far as hanging together, these things really are tough!!! We went through...

Re: Float Tube Worries

These are very tough little boats!

3 of us took a trip up to Alaska, and took two of these little boats, folded up, and tucked under the wings of a float plane. We drifted back down the Dawson...

Re: Float Tube Worries

I hope this isn't taking you off topic, but have you given any thought to a canoe, or perhaps one of the light pontoon boats.

After stepping on treble hooks, two different times, while wading out...

Re: Orvis superfine fullflex 3.0 vs Midflex?

Thank you fly-guy.

I am looking forward to compairng these two rods. I imagine the Orvis will be a fine rod for drys. The LL works well with drys, and nymphs.

Respects,

Richard

Re: Orvis superfine fullflex 3.0 vs Midflex?

All I'm going by is the tag on the rods. I am just not that familiar with the Orvis line up.. Wish I was!

Orvis superfine fullflex 3.0 vs Midflex?

Hi Guys:

I'm looking for opinions on these two. I have the opportunity to choose between on these rods. The fullflex is a 7' rod, and the Midflex is a 7'6" rod.

The rod would be used for some...

Re: All around 4wt

Were it my choice, I would choose either the Circa, or a ZXL. Both are smooth casters, and either would work very well for what you're looking for.

It's hard to argue when you start spouting drivel. I know, you're probably confused about the word drivel, so here's a definition for you: "childish, silly, or meaningless talk or thinking;...

Dan, I know you think your word is gospel, but it doesn't work that way. It's only your opinion, and your opinion holds no more value than mine, or any other member on this forum.

Re: Sage Fly Rod Cosmetics

I like the looks of the Sage rods (I must, I have 8 of them). But rather than argue which brand has the snappiest looks, there is a much simpler solution, Dan, you buy your flying pigs, and I'll...

Re: Take care with Fishwest !!

It seems strange to me that they didn't issue a "call" ticket for a UPS pickup at their cost. Their error, their cost!!!

Thumbs up Re: Fly Line conditioner ?

Hey Diver Dan:

Good to know.

I'll buy a bottle of it today, and give it a try. Worst that can happen is, if I don't care for it, I can use it on the Jeep!!

Respects,

Re: Fly Line conditioner ?

If the STP is a petroleum product, I would be leary of using it. If not, I might give it a try myself.
