Yesterday I went to Orvis to look at their chest or fanny packs. I wanted to find a simple large fanny pack to hold a few boxes of Saltwater flies and some tippets, clippers and "stuff". What I desired was one large pocket and one small pocket. What I saw at Orvis was comical.Their chest/ fanny pack...

Re: just a question

I have fished with some of these aforementioned reprobates. As for d.micus, I spent a night in a motel with him. I will not go into great detail, but suffice it to say if I ever do that again I will wear my waders to bed with not one but two belts.Evil Dave deserves his name. I will say no more.Flat...

Re: Chest Packs

I must be one of those old guys who does not care what I look like. For fresh water a vest works fine for me as it has lots of places to seperate things. In the salt, its a different matter. There I have been using a large simple LLBean fanny pack. A big pocket for three fly boxes and a small one fo...

Re: I feel like such a dumbass....

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you had that rod for 10 years and never felt the need to get something better then you've got a good combo for what you are doing. You might want to try a 4 wt line, but I would not be surprised if you find you like the 3 better.In general I think a lighter line w...

Re: Help me out here.

I have ahd several fast rods and I have gone back to a mid range or mid to fast range rod. The timing is much more critical and not being the best caster in the world, even after 35 years, I find that a mid action rod works better for me. I went to an Elkhorn rod.
