Re: Skunked in Sarasota! :(

Sounds like midge fishing when there are thousands of the real thing around... Sometimes you have to use something outlandish to get their attention. I've had my fair share of salt skunks as well!...

Re: The Tailing Tide...tailing redfish in the grass

There are some huge grassies in Colorado. But, alas, they seem even spookier than common carp. I've tried cottonwood seed flies, crayfish patterns, etc. with no luck.

Re: How much water California needs to end drought

Drought is the norm in CA. Growing up there, it seems like 8 of 10 years will be extremely dry, with the rest producing torrential downpours and huge spring runoff. It is normal to see reservoirs...

For now I've cut some sheets of foam to fit tightly in the spaces to hold down materials when closing the box. Its a work in progress. I was thinking elastic straps, flexible clips, or maybe a thin...

Re: Anyone want to donate me stuff for my fly tying desk?

Arts and Crafts stores like Michael's have good scissors, feathers, beads, and organizer boxes. They also have foam sheets ridiculously cheap for foam flies/terrestrials, etc.

We're moving and I wanted to be able to tie on the road and in between living situations.

Re: Vacation booked now HELP WITH A ROD

I guess budgets are relative!

I personally wouldn't travel with a rod/reel combo that was worth more than $300-400. Flying, saltwater, crowded boats... I broke a fairly new 11wt falling in some...

Re: Moving to Wilmington, NC in January

I believe fly Fishing is enjoying a 'rebirth' or 'revival'.

Moving to Wilmington, NC in January

Looking for fishing partners, a job, a boat, a new 9wt, maybe a guiding job??? If anyone in the area is looking for a fishing buddy, I will be doing a lot of exploring when I get there!

if you've ever lived in CA or visited, then you probably know how much agriculture and water usage there already is in the state.

Re: My 4 Stroke Won't Start

Another thought:

Are you just idling the motor or are you running it closer to full throttle?
Are you trolling for long periods at slow speeds?
