    Ray- I see a winking emoticon in his post, so maybe it's really a tongue in cheek comment.

    Ray, if you've seen pics of Don Gapen's original tie, you know that the head wasn't a big ball of spun deer hair. It looked to me to be more like an enlarged version of an elk hair caddis head- just...

    A factor here could also involve the type(s) of fishing one does. The Far and Fine, for example, was/is a wonderful rod for close to moderate distance trout fishing. Sorry Orvis decided to drop it....

    SEMI-realistic, Alan? If I were a trout, the screen would have fish lip marks on it! Cool.

    I love this fly. I've fished it for years in the olive version, and trout have been very happy to munch it.

    The original tie for the Maine Gray Ghost used cheek feathers that were cemented as a unit to aid in production tying. If ol' Carrie could do it and not get pilloried, I think you're O.K., Ray!

    I've fished the 7 1/2' 3-wt. Three Forks as my go-to small stream rod for years. I prefer a 4-wt. line for casts up to 30 feet, but it's a terrific rod. A good while back I tried to get a blank from...

    Winston Passport rods

    Hi, folks. Cabela's seems to be clearing out their stock of Winston Passport rods. I'd be interested in a 4 wt., if it's a true 4. Does anyone have any experience with them? Thanks. Chuck
