  1. Re: Any lamson guys here? Help with "clicker" needed.

    The Lamson Liquid I bought new last year is like pic #1. I considered cutting it out completely since I don't care for the click.

    Re: In the trunk

    I use rod caddies, too, and a magnetic rack on the hood for going hole to hole. The safest way to travel with it rigged is in a caddy either a two piece rod or a four piece in a two piece caddy. I...

    Re: tin shot

    I've never tried it, but I would think I could make my twist-ons with the no-tox wire I use when I tie if I was concerned about the lead.

    Re: tin shot

    I used Loon putty for a long time but found it too soft in summer and too hard in winter. I don't add weight often but now mostly use twist on lead that I make from scrap: Melt it, pour it, hammer it...

    Re: Slit foam recharging?

    No, I have never done this. I buy cheap plastic boxes and line them with whatever foam I can find. Then I stuff them with the terrible flies I tie. I'll never have one of those cool looking boxes...

    Re: St. Croix

    I got my St Croix IF 904 Imperial in the 90's. It doesn't say where it was made. It's still my favorite rod, though I don't fish it as often as I used to. When I get it out after a while, it always...

    Re: WTB : Vise and tools

    Like most folks my age, I started with a book-the pamphlet that came with my kit. Soon, I bought a better "fly tying 101" type book. Youngsters these days are more used to instructional video and...

    Re: Old School "thread body" flies

    Whiting 100's are a good deal if you can't spend fifty bucks on one material. I also preferred buying materials of a grade more commensurate with my skills

    I really can't count up and be sure of the number. It is surely time to get a list for the insurance and some photos.

    I found that when fish strike my indicators, regardless of which I'm using, it really ticks them off or makes them wary. It seems to take an especially long rest period before they come back to feed...

    Re: The “seldom seen” trout rods

    After my Cortland 8'6" 5/6 died, my next rod was a W Grigg 8' 6" 4 weight. It didn't pick it for it's dimensions-I really wanted a 9 footer, but it seemed that 6 inches really drove the price up. I...
