    You state a good reason for going with the smaller quantity, particularly if you're one of those ultralight hiker types that treks into the most remote locations to fish (as you sound to be).

    Only the spindle requires lubrication. If you have some hot sauce on-hand, or don't mind paying $10 for .75oz, you're good to go. If not, then there are plenty of less costly alternatives that will...

    "Uni-Thread" is the bonded, polyester thread that's been popular for many years. But Uni Products also offers a nylon thread marketed as "Uni-NYLON" and sold in denier sizing (70d and 210d). It's a...

    Of the two, UTC ties the flattest, but not by a significant margin. But it's also more flossy than Danville and more prone to fraying in my experience. I prefer Uni-Nylon to either.

    I look at stream "class" relative to its location.

    Hey Joe,
    Veevus 30d GSP is half the price for a 50%+ larger spool than semperfli nano. Same traits as any other gsp, including being stronger than you'd ever need.

    It's a water-based paint that sets at room temp overnight and is then thermo hardened in an oven @ 300-325 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I don't imagine that's warm enough to disturb the hook temper.

    He exaggerated. It's a muni code, not federal law. And it protects a population of free roaming birds. Residents can still keep their own poultry.

    Only one blade is serrated; sharpen the plain edge blade if you wish, not the serrated blade.

    IMO, for $15, I consider them disposables.
