    Re: Beginners advice.....

    The first part of the commandment is that the last thing you do when get ready to fish is to assemble your rod.

    Get all your equipment on before you assemble your rod and reel.

    If the rod is free and you will later be buying a better rod, you might learn to cast further. So the WF line could be better for you later on. It all depends on the distance you will fish at. The...

    Re: Furled nylon leader-T material.

    What is T material? Do you mean the tungsten that is in sinking lines?

    If you do mean tungsten, then why? It would decrease the ability of a leader to allow the fly to move drag free?

    Interesting sparse pattern. Kind of looks like a reversed hackle stacker with a short thread body coated with head cement.

    Looks easy to tie.
