    Bob,

    I think that's an excellent point. I wish I encountered more people like this on the saltwater, but I don't. Amazingly, with far more water to fish, jet ski, sail, putter around in power...

    I have yet to catch a fish, tie a fly, or anything else via the Internet. It's just another way to access information, entertainment, and communicate with other people.

    Yep. I understand your medical condition very well. Your detailed diagnosis and mine aren't that different, but yours is more severe. The nerve impingement and chronic pain, loss of control and...

    Wait just a minute. You asked about getting a longer rod. You can buy a good Tenkara rod for $60-100, and a line is less than $20. I fail to see how that would ruled out based on price when you...

    Go over to the Tenkara forum and begin researching this style of fly fishing. Forget the Japanese aspect. Fixed line, long rod fly fishing has it's roots in centuries past in cultures of the...

    We really have 2 choices when it comes to this topic: C&R or no R, just C. Fishing isn't going to stop. We're certainly not going to advocate it! The issue becomes, then, that fishing with the R...

    That is pretty much the average going rate for a full day saltwater charter these days all along the Gulf and Southeast Atlantic coasts. The range is $400-600, but about 95% fall within $450-550. ...

    Hmmmm. I think I'd have to cover that bad boy in Rhino Liner and some cool laser cut graphics then. :cool:

    It's easy if you just save up the money you normally spend on $13,000 Hardy fly reels. :D

    CR is supposed to be great for tarpon in turbid (read: muddy) water, and some excellent permit fishing in spots. I don't know what else they've got, probably some bones, too. Plenty of...

    I'm no expert on this, but I fish with a guy who is. It is entirely possible to fly fish for billfish from the same boats used for sport fishing tackle. They put the same downriggers out, etc. and...

    Bob,

    Key West is tough to freelance, especially without at least a kayak and good local area knowledge.

    There is a great MWR facility up at Marathon Key at the USCG station with bungalows and...

    Well, I guess we know where all those high-dollar fly fishing equipment buyers that Hardy says they've lost in this bad economy have gone. They're over at Orvis bidding $80k on a 50 year old travel...

    I merely said I wouldn't point to Hardy as an example of how great a company is doing after being bought by an investment firm when they just laid off 27% of their work force. I do know...

    Ummmm...Hardy just laid off nearly 30% of their workers. So I'd hardly point to them as a shining example of how well they're doing. And we're talking about the Abel that was owned by Bernie...
