Re: Masked fishermen

As mentioned - sun protection.

I am horrible at reapplying sunscreen, so I use the additional protection like neck gaitors, gloves, long sleeves, and hats.

Here's me at Pyramid Lake in Nevada. ...

Re: Abel Super 8 Reel- Issues?

I may be wrong on this. I think that the original Super 8 was a single pawl model. Later generations of the reel had a second pawl added for redundancy purposes. The sound of the two generations...

Re: Where do I start?

You can make entomology as easy or as difficult as you want. If you can learn the basics of caddis, mayfly, stonefly, midge, and other insects, you are more than halfway there. Just figure out size...

Re: Anybody remember Able fly rods?

Yes
They were priced on par with most of the premium rods of the day.
By today's standards, it may feel heavier than modern rods. If you can get past that, you should enjoy it.

Re: Upgrading gear for fishing the Wind Rivers

I have changed my tune on whether a novice caster should use a medium fast or a fast action. If you have a shop that you can cast a variety of rods, cast a few of varying actions. Whichever feels...

Re: Best rod for throwing articulated streamers?

The switch chucker is a good line for its versatility, but I think that a true shorter Skagit style head will be more efficient in delivery. On a 7 weight, you could use the different length...

Since you are resurrecting this thread, here you go.

I used to fish a 11 foot 6 weight switch with a 375 grain 20 foot Skagit head. Along with a 10 foot MOW style tip, you should be able to swing...

Re: Sage Method 8#

If you like how it casts, it is a fine choice. The rod is versatile enough to fish both short and long distances. It has enough backbone to handle what Mr. Boney is willing to dish out.

Re: Buyers remorse, do u ever get it? Please help lol.

Fish the snot out of the rig, and enjoy. Once you start catching fish on your new rig, you won't be caring much on how much you spent.

Re: New to Fly Fishing; need advice on these rods

One thing that you may want to consider is the 2 piece versus the 4 piece configuration. If you are traveling by car, either is one would be fine. If you plan on hiking, the 4 piece...

Here's a midge/mayfly emerger pattern that I use year round. I'll change the coloration and size for the seasonal bugs.

The great thing about emerger flies is that it can be fished in various...
