Re: Flycraft ? Anyone see this ?

They are pretty tippy and you need communication between the guy in the bow and the rower when he is standing up. That being said for specific bodies of water they are pretty awesome.

Re: Bozeman reels

There is a link at the bottom of the order page for the individual reels. All the way to the right the price of the spools are highlighted in blue and linked to the order form.

I'd post the link...

Re: Clutch Rods.......

They are building a pretty big presence in Florida. Lot of respected salt guides in the keys swear by them. I've got the Archipelago in 10wt for permit. A buddy that guides in the keys turned me on...

Re: Roadtrip through Canada, Help!

Also take note that some provinces require the use of a guide so you'll want to do your homework on where you might fish and whether your going to have to book a guide for that time frame or...

Re: Bozeman reels

I went down and knocked on the door of their shop as I wanted to see how one would balance on my 5wt. That and I was curious about the operation as I'm starting to see a lot of the reels on local...

Re: Caye Caulker Belize??

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on Caulker as what I've read looks pretty cool. If I were going solo I would just go back to Punta Gorda as I love that area. However, Permit fishing isn't...

Re: Fishing opportunities in and or outside of phoniex

Look at the Salt River to the East of Phoenix. We caught small mouth out of there and chased some pretty large carp as well. It's also stocked with trout at certain times of the year but I think...

Re: Your Top Three Books.....

Caye Caulker Belize??

Anyone ever fished out of there? My wife wants to spend her vacation time somewhere warm in April and that means Belize in my eyes. I've done Ambergris Caye and Punta Gorda but not been to Caye...

Re: Bozeman area members?

Re: Fishing Field Notes

I wouldn't do it out of respect for the few others that have found the locations on their own. Since very few fish it this means they probably haven't told others. If I were them I would be severely...

Re: Maine

Thats a beautiful area and should be a great trip. You don't necessarily need a 7 or 8wt though. I used to fish them a lot on a 5 or 6wt. We used to use a pattern called the Golden...

Re: Tarpon in mid Mar 2015 : Keys or Everglades?

Tarpon are there in March but obviously not in the numbers as during the migration. I have a buddy that is a guide out of Marathon and he is very dialed in. I've seen Tarpon every time I've done a...

Re: Vacation booked now HELP WITH A ROD

Which lodge are you going to? El Pescador carries high end rods and reels so unless your going to have an extended use for it I would borrow the 10wt from them. Just make sure the lodge does have...

Re: Ebola in Northern Maine?

As someone who grew up in Maine and spent the majority of my life there I think I can fairly say the biggest dangers are drunk drivers and Moose.

Ebola....not so much.

Re: Bozaman & Ennis

Montana Ale Works on main street in Bozeman. It's always busy but you can usually find a seat in the bar area. Lots of local beer and everything on the menu is pretty good.

Re: Week long float fly fishing

Thanks Ard. I also have a 13' raft that I love for two/three man floats but it needs a trailer and I can't portage it solo. The Flycraft excels in that area. It's also really quiet and...

Re: Week long float fly fishing

I'll chime in as I have a Flycraft as well as a larger raft. You won't need a trailer as it can easily be secured to the roof of a truck or even a car. Lot of people strap them down on there...

Re: Reel for 5wt Winston

Not on your list and a bit more money but have you looked at the Bozeman Reels? I just put a 3 to 5 on my 5wt and it's awesome. Rod made in Twin Bridges and reel made in Bozeman. Pretty good combo....

Re: Reel for Sage 7wt (without totally breaking the bank)

Another vote for Allen. I have an older trout II when it was made in 5-7 or I believe it was the trout II. Either way I paired it with a 7wt Sage One and use it primarily as a streamer rod with a...
