  1. Re: Montana Shuts Down The State...except for 'Outdoor Activities'!

    It's up to 108 now and will continue to climb. It's possible that those of us who live in rural areas will be less likely to be exposed because we are not in the proximity of as manly people. ...
  2. Re: Supporting the fly fishing industry during this time

    I've done some online shopping from some large and small fly fishing retailers. Had a mind to outfit a couple light line rods, reels and lines so I decided now would be a good time. I'm staying in,...

    Re: Fly fishing progression

    For me, the second form of fishing progression has to do with why we fish, what we get from it.

    It's like the saying, "first, you want to catch a fish. Then you want to catch more fish. After...

    Re: Fly fishing progression

    For me, there are two kinds of fly fishing progression.

    The first is largely about methods and skills we develop. When I was a kid, I read Ted Trueblood in Outdoor Life or some such magazine, and...

    Re: On Vintage Fenwick HMG Fly Rods

    Lewis,
    I wrote the GFF on the blank when I finished it because that's what I thought the designation was for the factory made rods. I'm sure you're right, and the blank designation was GFL.

    Nothing wrong with being sentimental. Not everyone is. I have a streak of it, however.
    That's an amazing story of your trip to Argentina. Whether or not a person is sentimental, the memories are...

    Re: On Vintage Fenwick HMG Fly Rods

    Lewis asked me to supply some photos of the 9' 6wt HMG that I built in 1982 from a Fenwick blank. The focus of these photos is to reveal the blank color, among other things. However I threw in one...

    Re: [Question] Need screws replacement

    I had an EXR III and a couple EXR IV. I fished the III constantly in in the late nineties and up to like 2003. I had to send it in to Orvis reel repair three times. My problem was with the drag...

    Re: Cleaning Rod and Reels

    I believe it. I stopped using it on my car's interior decades ago. What saved me from using it on fly lines back then was the availability of products designed to treat fly lines.

    I like the contrast depicted in the photo. A lone angler juxtapositioned against the city in the background. Just says something. Good.

    I used to fish with a guy who put Armor All on his rods and used the same on his fly lines after he had cleaned them. I followed suit for a few years back in the nineties. My motivation was to...

    That's the way it was with my loomis blank IM6 490 2 piece. I would come back to it after nymphing on the big river with a Sage XP, and I had to let the IM6 remind me how it needed to be cast. ...

    Re: Winston 7' 3wt WT vs Pure

    The WT 6'6" is the first 3wt I've ever owned. Since I live and fish in places where the wind can come up at any time, I feel a 4wt is a little more versatile. I got the little WT for a brook trout...
