Re: I have a 8wt, what's next ?

It's more like an addiction.

For any hobby, remember this formula.

n + 1, where n equals the amount of rods that you have.

Basically it means that you will always need one more item.

Re: It's hard to support local shops sometimes.

Very true, Jim.

I actually posted a response yesterday, but I guess that I deleted it after previewing it. That's not my first time. So here is the abridged text of what I wrote.

Re: WTB - Lamson Guru 3 spool

Shoot Lamson customer service an e-mail. Sometimes it has carry-over stock of older generation spools. If a spool is available, your next step is to go to an authorized Lamson dealer, and make a...

Re: New Guy

Re: Fly Line shelf life...

I think that your line should be fine.

I say just go out and fish it. If it goes runs through the guides well and floats well, you will know your answer.

Re: Start off Surf-fishing?

I can add to acorad's eight weight response. Line strategy is important. Use a 300 grain sink tip/integrated line like a Rio Striper Line with a very short (four to five foot) leader.

As for...

Re: Reel shootouts

The durability issue comes to play with the models that are so milled, that the spool walls are very thin. They can get bent from being banged around or dropped. Easy fix. Don't let it get banged...

Re: Serious about streamers

You could choose a seven or an eight weight, but I'd err towards the eight. It will give you more options on payloads that you could throw. Also it will be versatile for a number of species (big...

Re: R.I.P. Sport Chalet

If you want a line winder, I'm sure that you could buy one cheap from one of its locations.

Just sayin'.

Re: Streamer fly line recommendations?

Make a 20 to 24 foot head out of T-8. It will feel clunky, but you'll get some depth.

Re: Deciding on a New Reel.

Good call.

One of the best values on the market is the Lamson Liquid 3 pack. For the size 2 model, the kit comes with a reel plus two spare spools for $159.95. If you further your skillsets, you...

Re: What Did You Buy Today?

I bought some UV Gray Steve Farrar SF (Slinky Fiber) Flash Blend and some size 2/0 Umpqua U502 hooks. I need to tie up some Threadfin Shad colored (gray over white) synthetic Clouser Minnows.

Re: First Fly Rod

I'm with Fred on the spread being too wide for just with one rod.

I would lean towards an eight weight for the heavier rod just for the extra power when the wind comes up.

I have one of those, and it is more than adequate for trout and light bass applications.
