Re: Who makes best chest waders?

Simms G3s for me. Got 'em on sale for about $299 and I love them. I've been fishing them for a few years now with no problems at all. I had a pair of Simms Freestones before that and they worked...

Re: How Dry Flies Float

OK... I have to be completely honest. That last video with the turtle chasing and eating the albino mouse was pretty sad. I know. Circle of life. Blah Blah Blah. But I had a hard time paying...

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

I just checked it out after you mentioned it. The picture looks surprisingly good! The color contrast seems nicer than what I've seen with the GoPro4 and the "splash proof" housing is a pretty nice...

Re: Whitefish Trip - Seeking Advice

I take a trip up to Kallispell/Whitefish every year to visit family. Whitefish has a great little fly shop called Lakestream Fly Fishing Shop. It's right on Central Ave.; you can't miss it. They...

Re: Dear God its about to get hot!

I'm with you Fred! Not looking forward to this coming week at all. We've already seen a week of 102-107. This next onslaught may just be the "beginning" of summer. :eek:

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

I usually stand in the camp of getting last years models at a sizable discount as compared with driving a new one off the lot. I don't think I will take advantage of the difference in quality enough...

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

Nice vid Pete! I currently have a Swann Freestyle HD (supposedly 1080P) for taking videos and it's not bad, but there seems to be a sizable difference between it and your GoPro Hero3. I have the...

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

Thanks Bloomagoo. I have done some simple editing up to this point and I can definitely see how an increase in quality will increase the demand on my systems resources. Maybe an upgraded video card...

GoPro Advice Needed !!!

So, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a GoPro for filming my & my daughters fishing adventures, but as I look at them, I am getting incredibly confused as to their differences. There are a...

Re: Just a little drawing of a fly fisherman I did...

Very nice! I love the oversized hook and the purposeful artistic scaling. It's so much fun when the scale of certain elements are over/under-emphasized for effect. :thumbsup:

Plus the fact...

Re: Switch rod uses?

Well said!

I just took my daughter to the lake for her birthday (10th) to fish with one of our Convert Switch Rods. It was only her second time casting with a two-hander. She uses two hands to...

Re: 4 and 6 weight, or just a 5?

I may be one of the weird ones on the forum, but I almost completely stopped using my 5wt and replaced it with a 4wt Sage RPL. I love the way the 4wt feels so much more in touch with the fish. I...

Re: Few people handle and release trout properly.

We all understand rants and can definitely feel your pain! At least you now know that you're among friends here. ;)

It's good to see people with a true respect for the fish that have given them...

Re: First Brookie - A MONSTER!!!!

I think it's always tough to determine the age of a fish without really knowing much about the waters that it was pulled from. Around here (Rogue River), rainbow of that size are usually sitting...

Re: A Fun (and Harrowing) Day On The Water

Great post and great pics! Thanks for the read. It's always fun to read the encounters that other anglers have on their home waters. I would love to be on the water more than I am, but if I can't,...

Re: Gills and bass.... Agood evening

Thanks Bruce! I've seen some pretty great takes on YouTube. I hope to get into something like that. I've been a trout/steelhead guy for (pretty much) the extent of my fly fishing career. It's...

Re: Switch rod uses?

IMHO, I would think that nymphing is the last type of casting that would require a special line. All the work is accomplished by the indicator and the tippet/fly setup. All the line is really used...

Re: What did you catch this weekend?

So, a friend and I went to the lake to do a little bass fishing out of belly boats with my Moriston Switch Rod and old school Ocean City click and pawl reel. Geared up, loaded up and went for a...

Re: Tying tippet to leader

I use a loop to loop for both surface and sub-surface. It makes for a pretty quick changeover if you are willing to pre-tie tippets/flies based on water column and style of fishing. You can have a...

Re: Tying tippet to leader

Is nobody using a loop to loop connection? I use a double surgeons loop on both. It saves the length of my tippets over time. Not a lot I know, but it doesn't take any more time than any other...

Re: Hook Keeper

Been doing this for years with spey rods. A huge benefit is that you have a lot more line out, ready to cast. No need to "wiggle" as much line out of the guides to get casting again.

I usually...
