    Re: Do you have a fly rod problem?

    Here is the thing, a problem is something you cannot control. I have 8 fly rods. I can control that 'issue'. I might buy more in the future, but right now I do not have a 'need' for a new fly rod. I...

    Re: How do I go back to trout?

    I vote for small streams or high mountain lakes! I chuckle when someone says, hey lets head to the Missouri, it has huge fish and they put up a great fight!!! Uh, so do bones, tuna and sharks. Once...
  3. Re: What do I need to change fly line at home?

    "Well part of it is to keep your fly line from getting bunched up and looking like a phone cord".
    That was true with older small arbor reels. But large arbor reels have may be an inch depth, that is...
  4. Re: What do I need to change fly line at home?

    I am still missing what is so important about the amount of backing on a large arbor reel. The average large arbor reel is less than an inch deep. The pick up rate or tension of the line is pretty...

    Re: Label your fly lines new flyers!

    That was the advantage of the old small arbor reels, you had a wide side of the spool you could put the sticker on to tell what it was. Now the large arbor reels don't have the space. I label the...

    Re: Cost to spool?

    Two things I will comment on. First, taking your fly line, reel and backing to a fly shop and bragging about how much you saved online, than asking them to put it on for free is pretty bad. It is...

    Re: How To Hold A Trout

  10. Re: HELP! First Guided Bonefishing trip on boat (Castaway Cay - Disney Cruise)

    crazy charlies, gotcha charlies are the two I have always used. Shrimp patterns are the ticket. They can be dies with dumbbell eyes or chain eyes. Chain eyes for shallower water. I would practice...
  11. Re: Is there really a difference between freshwater and saltwater rods?

    I have the one beer rule. Break the rod down to two pieces, and set it in the corner of the shower. Turn cold water on it. Head to the bar for a beer. 10 minutes of a cold water rinse should work...
  12. Re: HELP! First Guided Bonefishing trip on boat (Castaway Cay - Disney Cruise)

    Best advise I got before my first flats trip, learn to cast better. I know everyone can cast. But, being able to change directs, "pick up put down 10 ft out and to your left" are not normal things...

    Here is what I don't get. If you call a plumber because your pipes are frozen or you have a major leak do you tip the guy? How about the guy fixed your roof, painted your house, resealed your...

    Re: Organizing your fly box

    One box of nymphs one box of dries and a box of streamers. I might carry 75 to 100 dries and 100+ nymphs. Probably 50 streamers. I only use a half dozen flies.

    Never thought about sharing a trip! That might make more sense. I was just thinking about shore fishing, but a boat with a guide might work too.

  24. Re: What rod for new fly fisherman in the Pacific NW

    Here is my advice, if you are just getting started why buy a $500 rod and $400 reel. Look at a Douglas, Echo, Mystic or TFO in the $300 range. Than add a Lamson Liquid Reel at $100, or the package...
