Re: Waterproof camera SALE!

I own the Olympus Stylus 850 ($199). The 180 Flip display makes shooting underwater images very easy. Good macro capability too.

Re: Forbidden Gadgets

It does all of the above and is a godsend for threading 18s (and smaller). It's earned a permanent spot on my lanyard. Short youtube vid here:

Re: Forbidden Gadgets

This little threader works great. I use it with anything smaller than a 14. It's called the 20/20 Magnetic Tippet Threader and can be had for less than $10.

Re: Drying motor

I use a motor from an old microwave oven (for the turntable) for drying. Works great and I got it for free - the oven was going to the e-waste dump. It turns nice and slow - 5 or 6 rpm iirc.

Patagonia Ultralight Wading Boots

For some time now I've been a more-than-willing passenger on the minimalist, lightweight bus that has driven through the fly fishing world in recent years.

Be it rods, reels, waders, packs, nets...

Re: More on UV vision and fly tying materials in trout.

My question then is, does the Adams in the example mirror the uvr of the mayfly it is representing, or is it simply an attractor?

Re: Need water proof camera help ?

Thanks, Ard.

To be honest, other than for macro work, the camera almost never gets out of program mode and it seems to handle most situations quite well.

As you can see, the optics are...

Re: Need water proof camera help ?

I like the Olympus Tough as well. Sharp optics and has an LCD screen that flips 180 degrees. You can flip the screen up, put the camera underwater and still see what's going on through the lens....

Re: Fly gear that should cost double or more?

I'm in the Sonic Pro wader camp as well. Third season, going strong.

Re: Colorado Walleye questions

Baitfish imitations are good - clousers, muddlers etc. Leeches are very effective too.

Looking for opinions/recommendations on whether or not to put a fighting butt on a 9ft 6wt 4pce Sage VXP blank I'm planning on building.

Re: Time for new boot ?

Shouldn't be an issue with winter conditions. The Boa system has been used on various snowboard and ski boots for a number of years.

Re: Time for new boot ?

I had korkers. The boa system was ok, although I prefer to leave the foot lacing looser and tighter around the ankle - something you can't do with the boa. It tightens equally throughout. They're a...

Re: Redington Sonicdry Waders, Your Opinion?

I'm starting my second season in my Sonic Pro's. No leaks, comfortable, no complaints. Great value for the price imo. My previous waders (also Redington, but not Sonics) leaked in the first year and...

Re: Boot for wet wading?

I wear my regular wading boots (Patagonia Ultralights) with a 3 mm neoprene sock, which is the same as my waders. Fits well and still offers all the traction, protection and support.

Re: 8wt BVK line weight

I agree with your overlined, short head suggestion. I've got my 8wt BVK lined with 8 wt. Rio Outbound Short. Seems a good match - at least for my casting style and ability.

Re: Beginner Waders

Redington offers a pretty good bang for the buck and they have excellent customer service to back them up.
