    Re: Line for 2wt

    You have some amazingly thoughtful advice in this thread. At this point I'd suggest a trip to a trusted local fly shop. Bring your rod and ask to test both the Rio Creek which I have on my three 2wts...

    Re: Leonard rods and Foyle's War

    I've seen a couple of the episodes. Good show. I was unaware of the fly fishing connection though. Interesting.

    Because there always seems to be places to cast from shore, read rocky outcroppings with some kind of obstruction, read very gnarly trees behind you, it seems regular fly rodders there get pretty...

  7. Re: Has Anyone caught ANYTHING on the Potomac this year?

    Funny that you mentioned wading. From the DC side wading is actually illegal and from the VA side the dropoff from shore is quick, deep and dramatic between Chain bridge and Fletchers Cove. There...
  8. Re: Has Anyone caught ANYTHING on the Potomac this year?

    Back when the shad run was "scheduled" to occur I saw a guy catch one way down stream from you at Fletcher's Cove. Down that way guys regularly are catching catfish on tackle as well as one big...

    Re: Simms Aluminum Wading Staff

    My Folstaff wading stick just arrived. I held off buying a wading staff because I already own x country ski poles, mountaineering treking poles etc making a wading staff seemed redundant. So I used...

    For those of us not yet into tying flies, can you buy this anywhere?
  14. Re: I might be just cluing into an already existing thing but a salmon cannon?

    Yeah, my understanding is that the first versions of this came online in 2014. Apparently the early versions required human handling of the fish, i.e. that they had to be fed one at a time into the...
  15. I might be just cluing into an already existing thing but a salmon cannon?

    If my general fly fishing rookie and complete spey rookie mind has this right you would use:
    1) A scandi head to present flies on the surface and
    2) A skagit head setup to swim wet flies, correct?...

    Well it turns out that the rumours are true. Beulah just came out with a member of the Platinum Spey series, the G2. I had a pre-order in after getting a tip. They arrived on Wednesday and it just...
