    Dudley,
    Thanks for the tips. I will definitely scout it out prior to hitting the beach. The line on my reel is a floating line, so I'm counting on the weight of the flies to help sink them. The...

    Thanks for the tips Ted. The majority of the flies I'll be using are 1/0 & 2/0 clousers and shrimp patterns. I may even tie up some sand flea patterns for the pompano.

    I'll let you know how it...

    surf tips?

    Despite the fact that I've wet a line more than once in salt water, I've never thrown one into the surf. I'm planning on giving it a shot in a couple of weeks when I'm down at the beach. How easy...

    First of all, thank you to everyone who replied. Your responses made me slow down a click and take a closer look at the project ahead. I have decided to place the 'buddy build' (that's what I'm...

    Betty,
    Thanks for the reply. I think it would be more of him measuring and maybe doing the middle of the wraps. I'd do the epoxy myself. I'm trying to be realistic here and I realize that I'll...

    Going to build my first rod. . .

    So, I'm thinking of building my first rod. . . . .with my six year old. I've been looking for a project that we could do together and the wife shot down my idea to restore an old Jeep (though that...

    You would think that, but unfortunately I wasn't able to find anywhere in the regs that say you can't do that. As long as you're using a pole with a line, it's legal. :mad:

    I was thinking the same thing. ;)

    I enjoyed reading this article as I have been known to do both. When I was a kid, it was almost strictly to the pan for anything I caught. As I grew up, I...

    I remember reading about a club, which was based out of Morehead City if I recall correctly, that would go out during the Bonita run and absolutely slaughter the fish on a fly rod. Talk to some of...

    So steaming worked. The ring that holds the reel in place is holding MUCH better.

    My new problem is that I have an old Shakespeare Wonderod that needs a new grip as the cork that's on it have...

    Is that as easy as holding the handle over a pot of boiling water? How long do you recommend steaming it?

    Sort of. It's an end cap and a ring over a cork center. The lower foot of the reel goes in the end cap and the ring slides down over the top foot.

    Suggestions on how to fix my problem?

    Replacing a reel seat

    How hard is it? I have an old fiberglass 5wt that I'd like to use, but the reel seat is worn and the rings won't hold a reel for more than about 2-3 casting strokes. I'd like to replace the seat...

    One of the reviews said that once you put the stuff on, you'll never get it off again no matter how hard you try. So if you get sand, salt, dirt, etc. mixed into the grease you'll tear up your reel....

    The finish on the Ocean and the Medalist are both in pretty good condition, so I wasn't really trying to 'strip' them and re-finish, really just completely clean and re-grease/oil. The L.L. Bean...

    I don't know that a washer would do it (the screw is pretty short), but I'd much rather go that route if possible. If I can't find one that works, I'll give the Loctite a try.
