    Re: Seeing Red

    Tailingloop, what you're describing is a little different. Particulate in the water such as algae blocks all light and makes everything dimmer. Light passing through gin clear water starts slowly...

    Re: Seeing Red

    I'm an avid diver and an avid fisherman. I dive a lot deeper than I fish! Here's why that's relevant.

    Yes, red is the first color in the spectrum to "disappear." It doesn't disappear at first, but...

    Re: Tip of the Cape

    Jed, glad to hear they're hitting on the Cape. Things are still slow here in the western LIS. Hoping that will change when the weather does. We've got TONS of bait in the water.

    Re: A line to practice casting

    DT vs WF is only one variable, and neither is 'better' than the other. Practice with what you fish with.

    I would submit that a (not good the best) way to improve your casting is to use different...

    Re: Floating lines in the surf

    I think the key factors are the distance you are fishing at and where in the surf zone you are trying to play the fly.

    If you are fishing the water close to you and are working the fly primarily...
  15. Re: Exterior Rod Tube for a vehicle - Anyone made one from PVC?

    I'd be worried about the rods sliding inside the tube and getting banged up. Padding at both ends and some non-skid material down the length would help.

    As for a lock, a cable lock run through the...
  16. Re: Diddymo found in New Hampshire and Vermont

    A serious concern for sure.

    Re: Orvis T3

    I've never used the T3 trout rods, but own an 8wt fast action that is a wonderful rod for saltwater fishing. Nicely built and very light.

  21. Re: Fly tying can be a test for your marriage

  22. Fly tying can be a test for your marriage
