Re: Help With Fly Patterns for Brown Trout (Lake)

We are fishing from a boat, and we do have a fish finder, but the lake drops off so quickly it is hard to pinpoint structure or that which we find is very deep.

We have fished along the shore with...

Re: Help With Fly Patterns for Brown Trout (Lake)

WOW guys!! Talk about some pigs...great pics.

I have never seen a crawdad in the lake, but that doesn't mean anything, since I have never really looked for them. The inlet comes in on a pretty...

Re: Help With Fly Patterns for Brown Trout (Lake)

Thanks for the tips. As far as I know, there are only Browns in there, and I have yet to hook up with one.

Re: Free Speech Censorship or Careful Monitoring.........

If a MOD/ADMIN wants to yank it...well they can have at it. I posted it to let others know that they might want to take their business elsewhere. Versitex sells Fly Rod Building Materials, and the...

Re: Terrible Customer Service from Versitex (Gudebrod Supplier)

Versitex or Gudebrod?

Either way, my problem isn't with Gudebrod - I didn't order from them. My issue is with Versitex's lack of consideration for the customer. I explained my point to them,...

Terrible Customer Service from Versitex (Gudebrod Supplier)

I just wanted to let you all know about the poor customer service I received from Versitex after trying to order some Gudebrod Braided Butt Leader. I placed an Internet order for a 50yd spool of...

Re: Share your thoughts on the Sage Xi2 10wt

Thanks Allen. The speed of the Xi2 might be the issue that some people are experiencing. I like a fast rod, but don't care for the ultra fast rods - they often feel like a broom stick. I was...

Share your thoughts on the Sage Xi2 10wt

I am looking for a 10wt for a trip to FL, and I have been told to stay away from the Xi2 in 10wt, as it doesn't load up. I have read reviews however, on other forums, where the reviewer claims it is...

Re: Ross F1 Experience?

I had a Lamson Litespeed 3.5 and it wouldn't balance my 8wt. That was the 2011 version. They made them even lighter for 2012...

Re: Ross F1 Experience?

Aside from the fact that I don't need the F1 drag on my 5wt, I think the weight is spot on. On my new Sage ONE 590-4, my 5oz reel is way to light to balance the rod. I think reel companies need to...

Ross F1 Experience?

Have any of you used one...
