Re: Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta

I don't fish many places where I can't pack iron and the walk-in accesses are teeming with roving bands of heavily armed thugs. I'm kinda funny that way I guess.

Re: dry fly hackle?

Re: dry fly hackle?

If you want to make your dubbing, get the hare's mask. And buy a full hungarian partridge skin, not loose feathers. The loose feather packs are a complete waste of money for tying soft hackles...

Hey, Luke. Bought my Weimaraner, Smoky Joe, at the Jack In the Box just off I-44 there in Sullivan 10 years ago. Met the breeder there for lunch and to take possession of the pup.

Re: Roll casting and rod action

Yep, shorter front tapers transfer energy faster to the end of the line and are less effected by wind, etc. Thus, they are best suited to casting heavier terminal tackle and in conditions where soft...
