  1. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    How I fish works well for me. Just opine what works for you, disparaging a method that might not be your favorite doesn't bring much to the proverbial table.
  2. Re: For you Flats people, what is your favorite sun shirt?

    I like 100% cotton shirts. Back when orvis made their Casting Shirt I bought 20 of them so I'd have a reliable stash. I've recently noticed that Simms now makes a 100% cotton shirt. I need to...

    Re: Fixing wading boots

    I shoe-goo'd a pair of Korkers back together yesterday. They now have permanent soles instead of interchangeable, paracord instead of shoe laces, but there's no reason they can't get more time out...

    I was an early adopter of Adobe Photoshop, and I still (no idea why) have all the original DVD's the software was sold on at something like $700 per. When they went subscription-only I made my last...

    Re: Danner/Patagonia Foot Tractors

    The lacing is much improved on the new Foot Tractor vs the original version in terms of how snug you want a particular part of your foot, or the whole thing. The new ones aren't quite as wide...

    Re: Rod tip replacement?

    I've broken three rod tips (Sage RPLXi 10wt, Orvis Helios 5wt, Powell Tiboron 6wt). Sage and Orvis each replaced the tip under warranty, I had an independent shop replace the Powell tip as Powell...

    Re: Underlining Reels

    I wish there were less oft-repeated "rules" within fishing in general, and fly fishing in particular. When I got started fly fishing decades ago I recall my first trip for bonefish in Mexico. The...

    Re: ECHO BAG Quickshot

    I have no experience with that particular line. I've toyed around with a few different lines on each of the BAG rods I own and if I was going to err one way or another, I'd probably opt to underline...

    Re: ECHO BAG Quickshot

    I own the 6/7/8 BAG Quickshot rods and if I could only own one, it'd probably be the 7. Not because it's between the 6/8 but it just really seems to be a nice casting rod. The 6 is a tad soft as a...

    Re: Multiple fly rod "Syndrome"?

    I obviously meant four fly rods under 7', all 3wt. You need to learn to read fly fishing shorthand! :p

    The only fly reels I have ever had to send back (repeatedly) were "sealed drag" Charlton reels. I had to send three 8500 .8's back and one 8500 1.2. Several friends had to send back both an 8550...

    Over the years I've waved everything from a 3wt (dries) to an 8wt (streamers) on the Taylor and the Gunnison. If I could only pick one, I'd just pick a well rounded 5wt and tuck in an extra jacket,...

    100% barbed. For me it's occupation insurance: I shoot photos for a living and it's really tough to get a great photo of that fish that got away.
