    Re: tarpon leaders

    Exactly - I don't want to allienate the guide, but I do want to have a chance of saving the fish from a shark.

    I picked up the fluro point from the Chard video.

    Re: tarpon leaders

    Thanks for this. I've watched the Chard video and ordered a couple of the Rio leaders.

    If the guides will accept Rio leaders that seems the way to go. I ordered the Rio leaders to show the...

    tarpon leaders

    I'm about to make a trip to Holbox where the guides apparently "insist" on using 80 or 100lb straight through leaders. I'm not interested in IGFA standards, but I suspect the core strength of my...

    Re: Cuba on the fly....

    Keep up the negative stuff on Cuba please. Because of the increase in number of americans visting the rates on the Georgiana have gone up 20% for we Brits.
  6. Re: Nicked fly line, is it salvageable?

    You can repair the line with hollow braid as used in braided loops. Slide the braid up over the damage and then whip it in place either side of the damage.

    Whether to repair it or not depends on...
  7. Re: My Fly Line Has No Welded Loop, What knot please

    Just a couple of things to add..
    When you say you tested it how hard did you pull and how much of a jerk did you give it?
    Don't hold back, far better for you to break it now rather than a fish...

    Re: I did a little experiment today

    Here's an idea that may be sacrilege.
    Provided that the line isn't a complete misfit for the job in hand you will adapt your casting to the line on your rod.
    It's similar to knots, the best knot...

    Re: cleaning your saltwater reel

    I'd make a couple of points.
    It's not just rods and reels that need cleaning - it's any kit that has the potential to harbour salt even if it won't corrode itself. This includes reel covers and rod...

    Sometimes I think there should be an option to DISLIKE as well as like or thank for a posting.
  12. Re: braided backing to flyline, which knot?

    Why on earth would you do that - the whole point of loop to loop connections is the ability to undo them.


    On factory loops I use a double catspaw with my loop to loop to spread the load because...

    Re: Perfect Fly Patch for Flats Wading

    Absolutely - I have used a credit card/business card sized dodad but a cheque book sized one would accomodate bigger flies. It's simply to avoid used flies loose in your pocket. I got the idea from...
  15. Re: knots and welded loops - saltwater applications (bonefish)

    Yeah but don't forget that if you're doubling it it will need to start twice as big.

    Re: What Did You Buy Today?

    A new pair of flats wading pants (I'd like to think the old ones shrank - but maybe my bum grew). Columbia Silver Ridge, only one criticsim there are no drain holes in the back or leg pockets .

  18. Re: An STH Eliseo's 12 .... Can the Wind Direction be Changed?

    That's it ! (I don't recall it coming with an operating manual;) )

    Incidentally this thread title makes me wonder about stopping the tide coming in.
  19. Re: An STH Eliseo's 12 .... Can the Wind Direction be Changed?

    It's just a piece of plastic to clip your line in when wading to stop it dragging out too far behind. I bought it out of curiousity. If I'd used it more it might well have snapped. No idea if anyone...

    Try asking STH, but beware before sending anything to STH.

    Re: Fenwick HMXF 909-2

    I know nothing about Fenwick rods or the sort of fishing you plan to do, but conventionally 909-2 is a 9ft #9 2 piece rod. If you are planning to travel you ought to be looking at 4 piece rods.

    Quite a lot of responses saying leave it in the truck/car. OK but how do you guys protect your electronic keys?
    Or do they work after submersion?
