    I'm sure I'll get excommunicated for this comment, BUT.... why not just buy a pack of Berkley Trout Worms in your favorite color and stop BSing around? They're already the right size, many colors,...

    I have used Prestige Plus lines for several years in different weights and tapers. Not on bamboo because I don't use it. The lines are the same or better quality of much more expensive lines. Last...

    Good God, don't ever come to any of the Lake Erie tributaries for steelhead. If you can somehow get a rod-length of open space on either side of you, it won't last long. It's not my preference......

    In many ways I am blessed to have learned, as a child, to fly fish and fish in general, with modest means. I had one hand-me-down fly rod for trout, bass, and...

    Just saying (primarily) that they should call it a TROUT tournament, not a "Fly Fishing" championship. Fly fishing is about so much more than trout.
