No New Posts Knot testing: Improved Clinch, Blood and Duncan Loop (Preview)
I recently tested the knots I have been using for many, many years. I discovered that the knots Ive been using were not as strong as they could have been. The three knots I tested were the three knots that I use most frequently: the improved clinch, the blood knot and the duncan loop. For my test I used 5X Um...

No New Posts Boat building (Preview)
Has anyone built a pram before? Something I have wanted to do for awhile now. There are tons of plans on line but I'm not sure where to start. This sort of piggy backs on the tube versus pontoon question. I have a tube already and thought about getting a pontoon but I want one I can stand in that has a lean bar....

No New Posts float tube or pontoon ... any advise for either... (Preview)
Hi Gang, I've not posted in a while ... simply not had time to get out. But, I am seriously thinking about getting a float tube. Kind of excited about it!  Any advice on brand? Approach to learning? Safety?  (I plan to wear some sort of appropriate floatation device... I am a pretty strong swimmer, but no...

No New Posts I have to ask (Preview)
Well I'll admit I am a bit embarrassed to ask this question, but hell that's what the board is for, right?  Anyways I was out fishing the lower american last night and I was having a hell of a time getting my leech patterns tied with rabbit strips to sink, and I was having a hard time getting a few of my all mar...

No New Posts rod repair question ??? (Preview)
Yesterday I was fishing and the threaded part of the reel seat came off my rod. I stuck it back on and it seems ok but I want to glue it to be sure. Any suggestions on what a profesional rod builder would use ? This was pretty disapointing since this is a very expensive fly rod. It has a lifetime warranty but do...

No New Posts spey casting or trick casting can be done with............. (Preview)
Single hand spey or trick casting can be done with any weight rod.  I have done it on different weight rods.  The key to doing it right or smoothly is to understand that while doing the spey cast, one must use the water as an anchor.  To do it all from my own personal perspective, one must learn the SWITCH CA...

No New Posts spey casting with non-spey gear (Preview)
I can kinda do the spey casting with my 5wt Sage. But I can't do it well with my 9wt. Its a 9foot 9wt Echo classic with WF9F Rio Clouser line + a shooting basket. I understand that one needs to have moving water, but is there anything else to consider? Is my gear too heavy? Do I need a particular type of line tap...

No New Posts Soft Hackle Fly Set-up and Fishing Technique (Preview)
Lately I have been really interested in fishing soft hackle flies. However, I am not exactly sure how to rig or fish soft hackle flies. I tried fishing a few soft hackle flies this past Sunday.  I used a standard 9-foot tapered leader with one fly and small piece of shot about 15-inches above. I fish...

No New Posts Rod Building ( 1 2 ) (Preview)
After thinking about it for awhile, and talking about it with my wife almost nightly for too long, she got me a G.Loomis GL3 to build.  Does anyone have any hints for a first time rod builder?  I looked at the directions today, and well they are about as helpful as a turd in a punch bowl.  Thanks for any help...

No New Posts strike indicator????? (Preview)
When does a strike indicator become just a bobber?  I have never used strike indicators and I have nothing against them but, I saw a guy today using  a bobber that was three inches long and one inch wide. It was such a bright pink, I can't even describe it. He was casting this thing up river and had no idea...

No New Posts Tying droppers to the first fly (Preview)
I don't know about you, but in this colder damper weather I have trouble tying the dropper fly to the upper fly with cold fingers. As an aid, I use a small piece of closed cell foam cut from a 1/6" thick sheet. I run the point through the sheet and loop and tie off the tippet along the bend as usual. This w...
