I deal with smaller hungrier fly rod makers for just this reason Sure, in some cases, but there are also a lot of examples of "smaller, hungrier" companies that are a shitshow and take forever to repair a rod. Agreed though, that TFO seems to always do right by people. Heard lots of good stories. I...

Damn, ginger it. I used to work until recently for a Sage dealer, and in both my experience sending a few personal rods back, and doing it for many, many customers, Sage's turnaround time was far and away better than most others. It would be unusual to not have a repair/replacement b...

It would be an accomplishment if they could just figure out one that floats on water.

My hotel. I was stuck on the 25 floor for 5 hours yesterday, and just knew it was going to topple any second. Raw, unadulterated fear. Witnesses say the Hotel Grand Chancellor is almost warped and is believed to have sunk three metres in just 10 minutes this afternoon. Several internal floors have ...

The only way to counter the inevitability of death is with living every day to its fullest. Dogs have much to teach us in that regard. And waking up to an all-expense-paid tour of Trask's digestive tract was a pretty unforgettable experience... My favorite 'Ask Trask' ever ('07 issue): Q: Dear Trask...

Cat hair dubs a jillion times better, and won't make every fly in your box smell like wet dog butt. I find the handiest way to harvest it is to throw the cat in the dryer on "high" for a half hour or so, and then you can just pick what you need off the lint screen when it's done. Most cats are good...
