Re: Kayak Fishing

I didn't find the position relative to the water to be a problem (I had a WS 120 Commander), but points two and three strike home and are the main reasons (especially point 3) I sold my kayak.

Re: Confession...

+1 for me, too. I have a number of 7 1/2' glass rods, and find this especially useful with these rods.

Re: Thief stole my fish and fly.

Somebody sent me a link a few years ago from Youtube of guys salmon fishing in the Northwest. Guy has a nice size fish on when a killer whale decided to have a snack. All that was left was the head....

Don't be lazy--check that tippett

Was out smallmouth fishing in a nice wadable river. Five hours of great fishing on a beautiful summer day. This river isn't known for huge fish--most are in the 9" +/- range. Large is 12-14". Got the...

Cocoons Sunglasses question

I've been using Cocoons with an amber lens for the last few years and have been happy with their performance (forget about how they look--my wife walks 10 steps in front of me if I'm wearing them).

Re: Fiberglass might be the answer

I, too, started off with graphite, but could never get comfortable with my first rod (Cabela's L-tech). I can't remember how I got onto the Fiberglass Fly Rodders board, but I became intrigued. Nine...

Re: What and where can I buy one of these!?

I picked up a box (empty, of course) exactly like that at Michael's craft store last year.

Re: Favorite Old Rod

I, too, do like old rods.

50's Heddon that I rebuilt this winter--replaced the guides, converted the metal ferrule to a spigot. This is my small, small water rod. Loves a 4DT and can handle just a...

Re: Question for those with the Patagonia sling pack

I glued a few pieces of velcro to the outside of the small pocket and just took the foam patch that is inside the small pocket and stuck it on the outside. It's been working for me the last 2 years....

Re: Dear God, the NE tiers of States are about to get pounded with more snow.

Snow levels in Madison haven't been too bad this year--just bloody cold. We average about 50" or so most winters; but a few years back it started in early December and never stopped snowing. Every...

Re: What ever happened to Sharkskin?

I must have bought a bag from the same guy. Great quality and a lot of different types of furs. Having the names on the back of each piece is very handy.

Re: Selecting a kayak paddle


If you ever get up to WI to fish the Driftless you might want to take a trip to Rutabaga in Madison. Great kayak/canoe place with very knowledgable people and an extensive selection of...

Oh, no, another fly rod? Well, if that is what it takes, that's what I'll have to do :) .

Re: Techniques for very narrow creeks

The knee pads idea sounds good.

I started this thread because this is the type of challenge that got me interested in fly fishing to begin with. I think I've got enough ideas to just get out and...

Techniques for very narrow creeks

I was out yesterday and came on a creek that I will be going back to. My difficulty was in trying to figure out the best approach to fishing this water. It is a meadow creek-nice structure, but very...

Re: Kayak fishers, I'd like your opinion.

I'm using the WS Commander 120. Very stable, clutter free in front. The seat can be slid under the middle cross structure for either standing, or sitting on what is referred to as the "Captain's...

Re: This!

I lived for 4 years in Northern BC--unfortunately, this was before I fell in love with fly fishing. Lived close to a river very much like those shown.

Especially love the diy rod fix at the end....

Re: Good day toys and gear

I've been using sling packs for the last 3-4 years. Started with the original Orvis (can't remember the name). Liked it, but it was really small. Moved to the Stealth Atom last year and love it. One...

Re: Fiberglass rods

Another great Fenwick is an FF75 (7.5' 5wt). Ignore some of the outrageous prices for Fenwicks on *bay. There are some people that think their old rods are made of gold. On the Fiberglass Flyrodder...

Re: What I've gotten for free from this forum

I'll agree with all of the above. I'm still relatively new to fly fishing (well, any kind of fishing), so I find I read more than I post. But people have always been generous in their replies to my...

Re: Another Method of Fishing (or not)!

I spent some time in NE British Columbia back in the '80s. Part of that time was living on the Alaska Highway in the middle of nowhere. A few of the locals used to occasionally fish with "C-I-L...

Re: Glass...Performance or Nostalgia?

I've only been fly fishing (actually, any fishing) for about 3 years. My first rod was graphite--because that's what you buy when you're new and really don't know anything about what it really feels...
