  1. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    Except 303 is not Armor All- and I recommended against using Armor All

  2. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    It is important to wipe off the excess 303- says so on their packaging. Perhaps that's linked to the sinking reports? It's not a floating agent.

    Re: Airlock Indicators

    I use Dorsey style on weighted double rigs all the time- no problem. Floats for hours. Use the right yarn. Brush it out with a dab of floatant. Done. Only time I go Airlock now is in highly...
  5. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    You lumped it in with deet and sunscreen- why, I have no idea. Then went in two different directions on Armor All, so I'm not sure what point you are trying to make. I'm still trying to figure out...

    Re: Utah or Colorado fishing trip?

    Frying pan can be for sure, but you have the roaring fork and the Crystal nearby. Another good option is the Gunnison area- fish the Gunny, the Taylor and the East. Visit the Gunnison Gorge with...

    I think you will find that Colorado has more variety- particularly when it comes to rivers.

    Could you provide a few more details on what you are looking for? Do your grandparents fly fish as well? Driving? Flying? Accommodations? How much time you'll have? Looking to stay in one spot,...
  10. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    303 is recommended for PVC and urethane. It is excellent for flylines.

    You put your faith in an auto detailer. I will trust my wife- a polymer chemist with 8 patents.

  11. Re: Nautilus XL Max failure right out of the box

    You are comparing two different reels from the ones I mentioned. Look at SDS and CCF and the design of the spool attachment. X series is a crossover from freshwater. It is a light duty salt reel,...

    Re: SAltwater leader

    I've never had an issue with knots in the guides- Lefty taught me a trick many years ago. Turn your reel away from you when you are landing a fish- or if you get a tangle in your line that you need...

    And Nautilus uses ceramic bearings- which can never corrode- should there be any SW intrusion.

    Re: Best SA line for small streams?

    Another option in an "SA" line is the Orvis Pro Trout- same technology as the Amplitude lines (Orvis owns SA), but with a taper similar to a Triangle Taper. Roll pick up is excellent with this...

  17. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    303 is NOT the same as Armor All. 303 is safe for PVC. It is an excellent UV inhibitor and keeps the material supple. Armor All is the stuff you want to avoid.

  18. Re: Nautilus XL Max failure right out of the box

    I own 4 Nautilus reels- they have all been flawless. I would take the CCF over an Abel SDS all day long- because of spool flex. To me, that is unacceptable in a high end reel- and it is inherent...

    Re: SAltwater leader

    Keep it simple- 4/3/2 is a pretty good formula for a simple salt leader. 4' of 30 lb, 3' of 20 lb,and 2' of terminal- maybe 12 or so. You can add a little flouro shock if needed, using an...
