    I tried it once out of my tube. I caught some fish, but it was not a fun experience.

    I fish when I can. That's generally in the middle of the day.

    The heat can be brutal, but you usually have the fish to yourself.

    :shock:

    How in the world does this happen on a rod that retails for $260?

    Full disclosure: I do not own and have never cast a BVK. From the online comments I've seen, though, I've come to two conclusions:

    1) The BVK's are the lightest, prettiest, best casting rods...

    If you're throwing BIG flies, you might also consider the TFO Mini Mag. Never fished one, but I've heard good things.

    I fish bead heads a lot but never use a strike indicator. I don't think the pattern matters much.

    I do love my float tube, though. ;)

    I like the Orvis (Becker) knot. Art Scheck recommended it in his Fly-Fish Better book, as did the late Bill Nash, the West Coast knot guru.

    It's strong and very easy to tie.

    I was at my local Bass Pro yesterday. The fly shop just started carrying Fenwick fly rods, and they had whole rack of new Fenglass fiberglass rods. I handled the 8'3" 8wt. Seemed like a decent rod.

    If $100 is his "upgrade" budget, I shudder to think what he paid for his starter combo. That being said, I do feel for newbies walking into a fly shop for the first time. "Abandon all hope, ye who...

    BP just brought back their 270 rod. If I were to buy a BP rod, I think I'd go with it.

    For the life of me, I will never understand the people who pay a fortune for gear but won't spring for a casting lesson.

    Interesting. My local Bass Pro stocks Sage, Orvis and St. Croix, but TFO outsells 'em all.

    Interesting color choice. On most my smaller jigs, I use solid black or solid red.

    I'm a big fan of bigger chartreuse jigs. I'll have to try the smaller versions.

    This will be my first visit to a Cabela's. The Acworth store is 100,000 square feet, but I don't know how that compares to the others. I think our local Bass Pro is 130,000 square feet.
