Re: High end ultra light rod

bear,

I had one also, but I sold it? I don't even know why? My Helios is nowhere as good for those little bluegills.

I had the original Superfine with the ring handle. That 7'6" four piece rod...

Re: what stage are you in??

I've loved fishing all my life, fly fishing the last 20.

I still remember the first fish I caught with a fly rod! A "stockie" brown trout, about 11", on a WalMart black stonefly nymph and my 5/6...

Re: Set-Up For Bluegills

I've been using a 3wt 8'4" and having so much fun with the 'gills.

A couple years ago, I had a 1wt Superfine, and it was a "thrill" to catch a 6" bluegill with that rod. I sold it, and I'm so...

Re: Fun with "Feather Flies"

dp,

I sure do! Pinchot is shallow, and the fish bite there first of the season. Also, it's perfect for a float tube.

My "There be Lilly Pads" post was at Pinchot. >50 Bluegills on beadhead...

You do come across as a professional writer? LOL

Good job! I enjoy it when people use the English language with creative sentences! If you did write a book, I'd buy one.

Re: Smallie Success

Cody,

Nice pix, but lots of words! I had to skip over most of it! LOL

Is this a test for a book?

Re: God bless the Bluegill!

Just a random vid on youtube! I posted it because I was having some "backsliding" issues, like fox?

"Presentation" is the key to fly fishing. He explains that in the vid. If I just couldn't catch...

I've already done that! Even though I'm a "born again" fundamentalist Christian, the more I read the Bible the more I'm finding faults with that also! I have a scientific background and...

"The night I put my Fly Rod down"

$800 fly rod, $400 reel, $100 line, high tech waders, Stetson hat, "realistic" feather flies, and years of experience, but the Gulp Alive baits on a spin rod will make you put the fly rod down every...

Re: Embracing The Future

"Orvis Sonic Seam" breathable chest waders!

Perfect fit, and so easy to put on and take off. I've had them for a year now, maybe 200 fishing trips, and no leaks!

Sonic seam means no stitches at...

Re: Best fly fishing video ever!

So funny!

So very true about the "fly fisherman" with his bobber and mending like a idiot! That's where I use a UL spin.

Fly fishing is only great with top water or a streamer and no stinkin'...

Re: "I Give Up...(almost)" Update

I just don't understand this casting thing! The very first time I picked up a fly rod, I could make a perfect cast every time!

Re: Hot summer water, I backslid to drop shot!

old,

Or you could use a "slip float" with a UL spin? Set at any depth? Very easy to cast, with no long leaders to tangle you up?

These modern slip float setups are really neat!

Hot summer water, I backslid to drop shot!

All the fish moved to deep water in the lakes I fish. I'm catchin' like crazy with a drop shot on my UL spin gear.

I know that I'm a back slider, but the big fish stay in deep water in mid summer....
