    Re: Galvan Brookie or Ross Colorado LT?

    Wasn't even aware it existed in green. I'll have to check that out.

    Re: Galvan Brookie or Ross Colorado LT?

    I had my Brookie on a 7ft 2WT. I think it is a beautiful reel that just screams fine machine work. Light as a feather. Does it do anything functionally better than a $30 Cabela's reel? Absolutely...

    All things skagit of course. Some of the best skagit info comes from the PNW for sure. There are not near enough active two hand casters that post to justify spreading us out. Even less scandi...

    Re: We Have a New 2 Hand Category

    Being a baseball nut, I think of it like this. Hank Aaron might have hit 1500 home runs if he'd just stayed in the minor leagues. It would have been so much easier if he avoided facing Koufax and...

    I am going to go beyond the "cosmetic" aspect with my answer. My Alumacraft Walleye boat is 22 years old now. I purchased it new long before I started fly fishing, but it fly fishes lakes very...

    Re: Drowning because of waders

    Just started fishing with unknown this year. "Let's try this Dewayne, it'll be fun". I've read enough now and I'm putting a pfd on my Christmas list. :)

    Re: 2019 Driftless Pictures and Reports

    I need to figure something out so I can request time off. I won't have time to make it all the way up north for steelhead this fall, but I promise we'll get something arranged. Work, the spring...

    Re: Drowning because of waders

    I never wear a wading belt. I need to correct that bad habit before I become the first fly fisherman to drown in a D.A. creek. I say that jokingly, but it causes me to not pack one when I travel to...

    Re: Tenkara Rod Help For A disabled Friend

    I'm interested too. Mobility on the stream bank would be the tricky part here. I take a few elderly folks crappie fishing annually. I use spinning gear and all I have to do is get them into the...
  14. Re: Best nymping technique for slower deeper pools???

    Here's something to be mindful of. If you only use a particular fly, fly type, or even a lure out of pure desperation when nothing else is working at all, you will soon condition yourself to believe...
  15. Re: Anybody interested in an $18,000.00 collectible reel?

    Neat find Coutlaw. I'd say the price might be realistic for a one of a kind Leonard reel. The "unobtanium" factor is going to be too much for a serious Leonard collector. The signature piece that...

    I agree, it's much better when there is more traffic. Forums are not nearly as popular as they were 10 years ago. There is much competition from modern social media sites, and the rising popularity...

    Re: Big Changes at Pure Fishing (Hardy USA)

    I don't know for sure if it is the same outside the US (I suspect it is), but I find it sad when an iconic brand goes away. It doesn't really die though. Whether a Hardy reel, and old IH farm...
  18. Re: Best nymping technique for slower deeper pools???

    I know you said nymphing, but when I decide to fish a slow deep pool it is often with a wet fly like a partridge and orange or peacock. Just a very slow drift and sink in very slow water. Some days...

    Welcome to the forum Dan! Fly rod building is very rewarding. Most of us do our first few builds with a cheap blank, because that just makes sense. You should start a thread on the building forum....

    This is solid advice. I bought about 8 rods my first 18 months on the fly, because I hated about five of them and couldn't sell them fast enough. It took a few years before I truly knew what I...
