    Re: who makes the new Sage Trout reel?

    Exactly~... I like their rods- a LOT. Wish they'd change their mind about reel mfg and bring it here. Although, historically it has been difficult for a rod company to pull off the kind of price...

    Re: who makes the new Sage Trout reel?

    It does look sharp- and they seem to have a fresh focus on aesthetics across the range. But with so many great choices in American made product, I'm gonna keep my money here.

    Re: who makes the new Sage Trout reel?

    I believe that to be the case as well- So Korea. I found an article a while back (which, for a moment I thought was current) saying that Sage was inking a deal to buy Lamson. Anybody recall what...

    Re: Utah C&R Striped Bass Record

    I'm sure if she knew better, she'd have handled it properly- since she cared enough to release it. If people who care about such things, and DO know better, don't speak up- how do others come to ...

    Which may have died later for having been hung by its face like that~ If you're gonna be a catch and release angler, learn proper handling techniques. Big Stripers have heavy organs. Not cool to...
  9. Re: Hairy Experiences with animals while fly fishing

    My nephew and I were charged by a momma moose on the upper reaches of the Colorado in RMNP two summers ago- despite my best efforts to avoid her.

  10. Re: So how long does a dry fly leader really need to be?

    The difference in drag and presentation between 4X and 6x is significant- exponentially so as flies get smaller. I fish the entire length of the Blue frequently, and I've spent quite a bit of time on...

    Re: Slow stroke, fast rod?

    Those lines are going to become unwieldy if you try to hold too much in the air- much the same as a shooting head/running line does. So treat them the same way when you are going for distance. ...

    Re: Boot Studs - Aluminum vs all others....

    The kit comes with a drill bit- If your boots already have an insole- or if they have room for one, it would be pretty hard to screw if up! Remove insole- drill hole from below. Insert stud with...
  17. Re: So how long does a dry fly leader really need to be?

    That's fine if you're fishing hatches with bugs in the 12, 14, 16 size range. When midges are on the menu- 4X isn't gonna provide a drag free drift on a size 20-28. It looks like rope coming out of...

    Re: 8' #4 vs 9' #5

    8' is not much of a nymphing or streamer rod- you are getting down into specialized territory there. Smaller flies, less reach for mending, less mass for carrying larger or multiple flies. Yes, you...
  20. Re: So how long does a dry fly leader really need to be?

    "Long enough" is the answer, Luke.

    Seriously, though- 9' 5X has caught me more fish than any other configuration over the nearly 50 years I've been "tinkering" with this stuff. I'd say you'll be...

    I just used blue loctite- haven't lost one yet. Mine are the two part attachments to be clear. Sort of like a mushroom inside the boot.
