    I've done a fair amount of cycling to fishing spots, but I'm always a bit of a minimalist, and when I'm cycling recognize that I'm even more so and really "travel light". I wear what I want to fish...

    Not sure which Board you are referring to, but in two of the three above, the members will hand you a Teddy Bear. In the other... you're more likely just to get a pat on the back.

    I'm not saying that you don't have some justification for feeling the way you do. Certainly a lack of response from Winston (either timely or non-existent) does not speak well for them. But here is...

    I still throw a dry. If nothing comes from that, sometimes I'll tie on a small streamer or soft hackle. But more times than not, I'll tie on something like a Royal Coachman. Fish it dry until it...

    I relocated to Indiana (Bloomington) about six years ago, and really miss the trout streams of the West. So I'd probably answer the "Who needs trout" question with, "I do." ;)

    The Masters (including the reference to their green jacket) is just a play on words, and not meant to be a direct correlation here. In fact, really everything preceding the final paragraph is simply...

    Who deserves a Green Jacket?

    In the vernacular of the world of fishing rods, we often have three terms that get bantered about: Designer, Maker, and Builder. In this thread I really don't want to get into where the line should...

    I'm still in those dark ages, even though I didn't start tying until post Tiemco, Daichi... I may use a few more styles than a 94840 and 3906B, but not many more and all my hooks are Mustad. ...

    No question about it, that one flew right by me. I was (am) clueless as to why that is important. So much so, that I didn't even recognize your use of the term "fly rodding" as anything more than...

    Big Bad Wulff and I are pretty much on the same page. I have yet to find a reel that isn't serviceable for the fishing I do, regardless of price, material, or design. And like him, I've "had some...

    I'll second that.

    "My way" is the "right way", and everyone else can say the same thing. (And be speaking the truth.)

    A quality silk line (as in real silk) has virtually no memory once it is well broken in. But that can take quite awhile in some cases. Phoenix silk lines are the lone exception to this (in my...

    Rather than post links and direct traffic away from FAOL, I'll just say that I also visit sites that target specific niches within fly fishing, namely: Ultralight, Fiberglass, and Bamboo.
