Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

I'm a big fan of Surflon Micro Supreme. Its soft and easy to tie with. I've heard good things about the Rio Powerflex Wire Bite. I think they are the same or very similar. I think you'll like the softer wire materials. You definitely get better action to the fly compared to heavy fluoro. I started ...

Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

Vito: what's your preferred wire and connection to the fly? I know Dahlberg swears by that twist melt thing that he does, but I think I've seen some swivels in your pics before? I've been a 100lb fluoro guy for a while now and haven't been bitten of yet, but the chance is always in my head. I'd hate...

Re: The cost of new business.

You don't have to go far to see the impacts that this new boom has had on the area. Both good and bad. Unfortunately, shitheads like these guys will continue to fuck things up for both the industry, and the public. The Mahoning has already been overdeveloped and used as a dump for industry for years...

Re: January Smallies- TR

This is a joke. A very mean joke played on those of us north of the Mason Dixon. Very cool stuff man. :cool

Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

These are pretty solid sticks. At least they were for Peacocks. http://www.templeforkflyrods.com/products/rods/bluewater.html I had one of those. It was the "baby" model. Could've pulled the boat out with it at the end of the day. It was on the heavy side and for whatever reason, I couldn't hit the...

Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

It was a "modded" rod... Not species specific... "heavier tip for casting big flies" WTF? Guess it'll work, as well as a Redington predator. I've heard of a few going back to the factory...mainly cause shit fell off, like tip tops. But I guess it still lays it down FWIW (for what it's worth). Whate...

Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

I just saw that Scott is still making the "musky special" in the S4S line. Not to get all favorite 5 wt, but has anyone fished this thing? I'm curious to hear the reviews if you have.

Re: Musky Addicts Anonymous

I think a 9' #10 is about perfect for what we do here. The right 9' #10 seems to be a good balance between still being castable all day, and still having the power to throw the flies and turn the fish. I've been using an Echo3 for the last two years, and really like it. Great company to deal with to...

Re: Geoff Mueller Is A F@g!

Might I offer a suggestion? Let Raffa work some of his photoshop magic on the photo from the Erie article and maybe pair it with an article about the Beaver/private lease situation along the lake. I would frame that shit. The mag has gotten a bit soft as it has grown. Still better than the rest, but...

Re: Simms Going Direct

Works fine for Patagonia. That's what I thought right away. Whether this passes or fails will be determined by how Simms treats its retailers. If retailers are ordering items only to be told they are backordered, and then finding them in the direct online store, then there might be problems. Then a...
