    My wife mentioned something about Valentine's Day little while ago. I guess it is coming up soon. She suggested something but I can't really remember what she said. Maybe she wanted a new fly rod?...

    Cabin Fever

    This is that time of year when many of us start getting cabin fever.

    1hook,

    I don't think that by using thread wraps you would increase the chances of the tip section of the line sinking. However, that said, I seem to have problems with the tip section, like the...

    Don't forget about dry flying around the reeds and shallows. My favorite dry flies on lakes are the Parachute Adams, Renegade and Griffith's Gnat.
