    Re: Is fly fishing inherently better?

    Exactly this. He should go post the question on the B.A.S.S. tournament website and get back to us. And it just occurred to we haven't seen him for awhile. He's probably out fly fishing :)

    Re: The Underwater World of Trout

    That disclaimer also caught my immediate attention. It's only natural for us humans to give a little too much credit to animal's cognitive abilities. I do believe it is a matter of a fish noticing...

    Re: Baby Bass Airhead Minnow

    My first half dozen synthetic streamers weren't sparse enough. They didn't swim well at all and caught nothing. That's the only reason I mentioned it. No intent to be critical. Have you tied bunny...

    Re: Equipment that's too nice to use.

    I've really enjoyed this thread. It's given me some perspective. I already shared a long-winded post here, but it really comes done to this now that I have had the benefit of experience.

    Re: Is fly fishing inherently better?

    Good post Cootlaw. I thought I was reading my own fishing life plan for a minute. :) I too spend 90% of my time on the fly. When I can't find a little time to take my aging relatives fishing by...

    Targeting chubs is new to me for sure. As long as everyone is having fun it's all good. I have a friend near the CA border. Nets sucker's when the water is very cold after ice out. Smoke and...

    Re: Identify this fish

    Here, carp are coarse fish, which I understand are pretty popular on your side of the big pond. They are fertilizer here. It's all about perspective. The fish in the OP's post is what I catch on a...

    Re: Equipment that's too nice to use.

    Good thread. I'm a little weird when it comes to gear. I have some stuff from my spin fishing days like an Abu Ambassadeur bait casting reel from the mid 1980's. Must have been a good design...

    Re: Shorter fly rod

    What Riptide said. I inquired about repairing a musky rod my kid's pet rabbit chewed the cork off of. After I got a few quotes I decided it was time to learn to build rods myself.

    So the GMO fancy chicken feathers are not a by-product from Tyson farms? :shocked: Five years of my life wasted hanging out on the internet with a bunch of fancy chicken murderers!

    Somebody clearly isn't putting enough split shot on his tippet. Those floating lines are hard to sink down to where the eyes are feeding. I'd do a youtube tutorial if I could keep a straight face...

    Re: Slow stroke, fast rod?

    I'll be interested to hear Bills response, but a bass taper is just not as pretty. Clunky and in appearance but effective. In the the right hands a "traditional" fly line can cast a "normal" trout...

    Re: Is fly fishing inherently better?

    If your definition of "better" only includes your catch rate, then no, fly fishing is not inherently better for many species. Species that usually feed deeper are normally much more challenging on...

    It's pretty much a clouser with craft fur. I'd go very sparse on the fur and it will swim nice. Thanks for sharing your work.

    It depends is the answer I expected from the beginning. I asked because what I was doing did not look right at all to me, but it was working pretty well. A leader much over 9ft is indeed an...

    Re: Slow stroke, fast rod?

    No argument from me. I use a pike taper on my 9WT, because I don't care to cast the rod I really need for the big flies. Throw a weighted leader on and we are definitely looking like a spincaster. ...
