  1. Re: What 's the best season for a trip to Bull Shoals?

    My best trips have been in mid-summer and fishing at night (for bass.) Not sure that will work with your plans to wade. Truth is, there's not a lot of wadable water there, depending upon lake...

    Re: Nippers and plyiers

    Yep. I use one for both pike and musky and they don't have to be deeply hooked for it to work just fine. They are a godsend for deeply hooked esox.

    Re: WTB: Cliff Herron fly reel

    Yep, that was me and Cliff quit supplying dealers in the mid-'90's, and I had about two dozen that were on order. He had constant problems with anodizers and lost a lot of his production by having...

    Re: WTB: Cliff Herron fly reel

    Any size or style? I used to be a dealer for Cliff so I occasionally come across one for sale. Have you checked Vintage Fly Tackle? They had one not too long ago.

    Re: FlYSlingers Musky Fly, Husky Musky

    I'm reactivating this thread because I'd love to know how this fly worked for you. In addition to the concerns guest59 had, I'm wondering what rod you could use that would actually cast it. Fly rod...

    Re: cleaning your saltwater reel

    Be sure your owners' manual doesn't disallow you to soak the reel in water. Depending upon the design, it can have permanent negative effects. Henschel reels used to come with an orange sticker...

    Re: cleaning your saltwater reel

    I would think doing so is often required. It's really a matter of how intensely you do it and how far you strip the reel down. I clean the reel thoroughly, dry the line and backing, and even give a...

    Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    Not all saltwater flyfishing is for huge fish. For those that I pursue(d), they are all loaded with Hatch. However, I've also been known to spend a fair amount of time pursuing snook, redfish,...

    Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    I have a few reels which have been rigged for years and are still used in saltwater. Many of them have SA System backing in 30#. I won't normally use it for rigging anything new or re-rigging...
  11. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    In fact, some of the shirts I wore were chambray. Chambray and Madras appeared at the time to be two names for the same thing. I still can't tell the difference as when I looked it up they referred...

    Re: Bass Flies/Streamers for a 5wt

    Don't discount that opportunity so easily. Our local fly shop has Saturday lessons most weeks in April. They do from 8am to noon and 1-5. I know a three hour round trip seems like a lot, but if...

    Re: Bass Flies/Streamers for a 5wt

    Keep the size within reason and the additional weight added to a minimum and you'll be fine. I used to throw Sneaky Petes with a 5 weight all the time and all day long. #2 Dahlbergs as well, at...

    Re: Key West fly fishing

    Of course. Actually Angling World was an old company that was part of Hunting World out of NYC, I believe. Joe Saracione made a fly reel for them in the late 1980's and that's how I became familiar...
  15. Re: Any magic tips for casting longer distances while sitting in a kayak

    I bought a 10' rod to use in the old donut style belly boats where you are even deeper in the water I think. I also felt it didn't work out. The extra leverage the rod exerted on my system tired me...

    Re: Key West fly fishing

    Lenny Leonard, Dexter Simmons, and I think Will Ryan will guide out of Key West. You could also contact Angling World (a fly shop) down there and ask whom they suggest. I know they won't steer you...
  17. Re: Any magic tips for casting longer distances while sitting in a kayak

    I'm trying to figure out if this is tongue-in-cheek or if you're just not making your point. Casting harder is a good way to blow out your shoulder and/or elbow. Let us know if that's not what you...
  18. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    Re-read my post. I was thanking you for clarifying the difference between woven and knit. I was not aware of that until now. I hadn't even heard of sunscreen until about the mid-70's, maybe even...
  19. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    Somehow I haven't made the point with you that the modern stuff DID NOT exist when I started flats' fishing. I had no option and frankly there wasn't anywhere near the concern about it that there is...
  20. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    Let me help you with those words. I used Madras cotton for years before TarponWear revolutionized the market. Not only did I never burn, I never even colored slightly tanned. Not sure why in this...

    Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    7TCU asked the question, or more correctly made the statement. I agree completely and suggested one that works better, though not great. As I mentioned on a previous post I haven't used any nail...

    Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    No, I know an Albright from a nail knot. And I know both can be tied with additional locks on them. This was referred to as a saltwater nail knot starting, my guess, about fifteen years ago.

    Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    Since I would guess you're saltwater flyfishing, you might want to look into a nail knot that has an extra lock involved, which eventually became known as the saltwater nail knot. I'm guessing you...
  24. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    My genes are Scottish and I have the same blonde hair that has a red base, as my beard was red before it turned grey about twenty years ago. Therefore I've covered up for a long time. I have had...
