    Bruce,

    To the best of my knowledge the waist belt on the LL Bean pack is unique to that pack/vest combo (Fishpond doesn't have it). As to the tight closure, though it isn't shown the Fishpond...

    It looks like there are three reviews on LL Bean's site regarding it and two are positive, one is slightly negative. It looks to be a knock-off of the Fishpond Wastach Tech Pack with a few...

    Walter,

    As others have posted it's really tough to make a living on the internet if you aren't going big. Free content is simply too plentiful and often it's of amazing quality. On another board...

    I have a pair of the Orvis Pack and Travel wading pants and am very happy with them. As Steve noted Orvis was supposed to release a Sonic Seam wading pant last year but it turned out the convertible...

    Walter,

    I'm only a little way into the book, but it is really good so far. Your writing style is excellent and very engaging. If I had any criticism of the book it would be the order the...

    gbv,


    As others have stated this has gone on far too long and now the truth has come out. You need to involve the lodge manager ASAP. If the guide has offered two nights at the lodge and two...

    Wow! I figured when there was no response you'd been taken care of. As Betty has said the time for being nice has come and gone and it's time to put the screws to the lodge/outfitter and the guide....

    Thanks for this discussion. I'm thinking about going to a 10' rod for nymphing (most of my fishing) in western streams where casts are rare (mostly dappling), and this whole discussion confirmed for...

    Gerri,

    So that is what that loop is for! However, the way I wear it (on my hip) that loop sits on my left shoulder so I can't use it for it's intended purpose, but I'm glad to know why it's...

    I use the same pack and to carry a net I usually shove it in my wading belt if wearing full waders, or inside the waistband of my waist high waders. Both work decently well when using the Waterdance...

    I too have used a guide many times in the past and have never seen this practice, nor would I use a guide outfit that subscribes to it. I have been asked to pay for the flies I used (which I think...

    Phil,

    Largely depends on how far you are willing to drive. Heading W out of Colorado Springs on US 24 will take you into Park County (about an hour - hour and 30 minutes) where you'll find the...

    Rodney,

    Given your criteria the Sage Response ($395) is going to be your best bet. However, you may find some closeout Sage Flight (the Response is the replacement for the Flight) rods that will...

    Marco,

    No offense taken. I take a fair amount of criticism for being a stickler for grammar especially in the age of texting where the use of even a properly spelled word is too hard for many.

    Marco,

    Back in the day I used to proof read college textbooks, so grammar and spelling are biggies with me. As Royce noted when you are asking folks for $75,000 you need to do so very...
