    Re: Yakima doublehaul??

    I'd like to see those in the flesh. I've got a Yak canoe rack on my Tacoma. They sound pretty slick, if a bit spendy.

    I like them Ard. Do you use any connector tube, or do you just jam the hook eye into the end of the tub itself?

    Fishing in SE Alaska we run into brown bears on the one river on pretty much a daily basis. You need to be mindful, but if you leave them alone and get out of their way they'll leave you alone. ...

    Nice. Your flies should be cast with a combo like that.

  6. Re: Difference between original Loomis GLX and Streamdance GLX HLS rods?

    Re: Do you have a fly rod problem?

    I don't think I've got a problem.

    My numbers aren't crazy compared to some: a couple 6 weights, three 8 weights, two 9 weights (my saltwater rods), a 5 weight double hander, and two 8 weight...

    Re: Almost $14k for a designer fishing rod

    Shrug. If the Abel nippers thread has taught me anything, it's that people can rationalize buying whatever they want (not judging those who buy Abel nippers, or anything else). And let's face it,...

    Poll: Re: Do you get lucky?

    I'm with Rip--I feel like it's luck every time. And I think that's part of the thrill of fishing, for me: that absolute amazement every time you actually hook a fish. If it was automatic, or you...

    Re: MEXICO fishing license on line?

    Carl, if there is one I couldn't find it when my wife and I went to Tulum last year. Also, I found conflicting advice online--some said you need a licence if you're going to deep-sea or offshore...

    Re: Abel Knife

    They're sort of the Abel nippers of knives. Lots of good and better knives for less money, but if you want those Abel graphics (and the Abel name) you'll pay.

  22. Re: Is it replacement time for the Loomis NRX and NRX LP rods?

    The only NRX I have is a 13' 8/9 spey rod, and like the other models described in this thread it is one sweet rod. It can easily handle the heaviest Skagit heads and sink tips, yet cast a lighter,...

    Re: Frankenstein switch rod

    What a great story. I've got two GLX single-handers and absolutely love them--I can see why you'd want a new one made.

    And is that a Danielsson reel? Nice combo indeed.
