  1. Patagonia River Salt Jacket - M - almost new

    I wore mine a total of 3 times in the 6 months I've had it and it is like new. Wife surprised me with an early Valentines Day present of a Simms wading jacket, so the Patagonia River Salt won't get...

    Some of our maples started showing hues of red about 2 weeks ago in my area. Saw my first fully orange tree yesterday in my travels. Can only hope for an early leaf drop!!!

    I don't think we can agree on that. They're not a pretty fish a all, at least any of the ones I've see come out of Erie, Ontario or the Finger Lakes. Brookies are a pretty fish.

    I guess it comes down to you call them whatever makes you happy. All have their place, but usually don't mix well.

    From the people I know and fish with, I think there are three general types of...

    Graphite weight

    I keep reading (not only here) about new rods. Have been reading the same stuff for many years now, probably since I first discovered fly fishing magazines. One common thing I read about new rods...

    AMEN! And if we were smart consumers, we'd stop buying the stuff completely until the prices were at a better level.

    I believe I casted all of TFO's rod models and have yet to find anything that comes closer than med-fast. If you're use to casting the ultra-fast rods that are on the market these days, I'm guessing...

    Check our Radio Shak. It would be a level line instead of DT, but they sell a lot of plastic coated wires. I'm sure one of them would fit the bill.

    Maybe, but a broom handle is much closer to a fast rod than a wet noodle is to even the slowest fishing rod in the world.

    There hasn't been a slow graphite rod made to my knowledge for quite some time now. If there has, I'd like to know about it. Orvis' original "Trout" 8' 6 weight is a nice slow rod for graphite...

    This should say something interesting for all those who like a rod that mimics a broom handle with snake guides. There's nothing interesting at all for those of us who like a slow rod at Sage. :-(

    Both will work

    I either fish a 9' 8 weight or an 11' 6 weight for Erie and Ontario tribs. Both have landed 25+ pound salmon and many steelies. Go with what you fish with the best.

    As already said, dubbing. But not only the run of the mill twisted on on the thread dubbing method, but dubbing loops too.

    I catch an equal amount of walleyes on really big black buggers and large black rabbit strip leaches. Usually with cones, but sometimes with dumbell eyes. No flash, just plain old black.
