Venice, Fl. in February

I may have an opportunity to fish for one day there next month. Should I bother with the fly rod from the beach or jetty? If so, should I throw clousers and deceivers on an 8 weight?

Re: Fly fishing on the honeymoon.....where

Just say "Thanks, but it's about us, not me."
Go back on a vacation next year and fish then.

Re: Favorite relaxing drink

I've been enjoying an inexpensive bourbon - Evan Williams. One small cube and I'm good.

Re: Line Weight vs Rod Weight

It's become like a speed limit - just a suggestion.
You need to cast a rod before you buy, trying lines above and below the listed weight, to find out if the rod feels right TO YOU.

Re: Up lining or Down lining a fly rod

Wouldn't the taper be within the first 30 feet? Doesn't the taper just change the distribution of the weight within the first 30 feet?

Re: Favorite line clippers?

William Joseph makes a nice pair. i don't know how much they cost, mine came on a used Confluence chest pack. They work really well, though.

Re: Perfect rod

Use the above tape suggestion, changing it until you've found the shape that feels best to you. Take the rod to a rod builder and ask him to replace the grip with one of the exact same shape and...

Re: Weight questions

You can overline or underline any rod for the immediate situation. The question is: should you need to?
What rod is it and what are the fishing conditions: species, setting, wind, distance needed...

Re: 7'6" vs 8'6"

Take both. The 8'6" will be better for holding line off the water for better drifts.
If the currents aren't too bad and you can wade closer, use the 7'6.
Either is a good back up to the other in...

Re: Orvis Recon or TFO BVK

Get the Recon.
I got the 904-4 and it's shown me that I'm more accurate than I thought.
This rod is good at 10 feet, 20 feet and 30 feet. And it'll shoot loooong if you do your part.

Re: A Newbie's First Fly Fishing Attempt

Congratulations.
On a lighter note, you're either a fantastic in-law, or they're trying to give you a reason to go fishing instead of being around your wife.

Re: Is this a good kit for a newbie ?

Go to a fly shop, explain that you're a beginner and ask for help.
They'll suggest a serviceable combination of rod, reel, line and backing in your price range. You can also get some casting...
