Re: favorite western fly rod

"Out west" is way too vague. In general, though, the same rods that work in the east work in the west. There are as widely varied of set of conditions in the west as there are in the east, and...

Re: Multiple Sales Posts

It's called spam. The moderators ususally do their best to delete them as soon as they appear, but obviously there is going to be some delay time before the mods see them. To help out, you could...

Re: light weight fly rods

I owned a 00wt Sage TXL for a while, and liked the way the rod casted and fished on lakes, but thought that the tip was too soft for the average small stream situation. When a fly gets caught in a...

Re: Daddy long legs

In America, these are commonly called crane flies and the term daddy long legs is used to refer to a spider-like arachnid with long, slender legs. In Canada, the UK, Australia, and many other...

Re: A small, but perhaps challenging, question:

Even if Lamson were in a lawsuit, you could still sell the reel. Used Lamsons routinely sell on ebay. I actually recently sold my Lamson Velocity Hybrid (older model) 1.5 for about $150 (incl....

Re: 5wt or 6wt?

Fly rod action (http://www.flyfishinggear.info/buyers_guide/fly_rods_action.shtm) will be different for different rods. A slow action 6wt might feel identical to a fast action 5wt, and you could...

Re: Barb or Barbless?

There are MANY long threads already on this subject. A forum search would be very productive.

Re: Landing: on the reel or not?

I've lost some very strong-fighting rainbows that were in the 15" range in deep, fast water because I didn't get them on my reel right away--using a 3wt rod that is. However, usually I can strip...

Re: How do you organize your fly box?

I have 3 of those lightweight Morrel foam fly boxes. One is designated for dry flies, one is designated to nymphs, scuds, emergers, and the last one is designated to buggers and streamers. All...

Re: It's hot! What to wear under waders?

I'd just wear swimming shorts and leave the waders at home. I have no idea how people can wear waders in the middle of summer. Yes it can be more convenient to have everything dry, but waders are...

Re: New Sage SLT 8'9-3wt---Need line?

I own that very rod and have tried it with a few lines. Of all my fly rods, it's the one that I'm not able to easily roll cast with. I don't know what it is about that rod. I can roll cast short...

Re: Catch And Release

It sounds like you've thought a lot about catch and release. It's always a good thing for there to be more c&r anglers in the world. It means you're doing a favor to all us other fishermen, whether...

Re: need help with waders!

Personally, I wouldn't wear waders in September. But then, I have trouble understanding all these guys fishing in waders in July and I guess the later half of September can start to get chilly in...

Re: TFO vs. St. Croix

I think the Series One is the older version of what they currently call the Signature Series, right? In that case, I would pick the TFO hands down. Unless you step up to the St Croix Avid, Legend...

Re: Leaders?

I figure I should start tying my own because I haven't yet figured out a way to buy them cheaply in bulk, but the kits are really expensive. I'm learning how to conserve my leader by tying my tippet...

Re: Fly Fishing in a Kilt?

I could imagine somebody using a kilt for flyfishing if they liked to feel "freer" and more "airy", but still wanted their thighs to be covered from the sun. That would be the same reason why anyone...

Re: Ffishing the Hatch

Re: Do you fish with 2 flys? Why not 3 or 4?

I fish with two flies in the dry/dropper configuration where one is a nymph or a bugger and the other is is a big dry fly. That way, even if they're not hitting on dries, the dry will serve a...

Re: TFO Rods

That's an interesting website. So the Signature series is a little slower than the Professional series.

Re: TFO Rods

I forgot about their 2-piece series. That's a very good value for what I understand to be essentially the same blank as their Professional series.
