    A factor here could also involve the type(s) of fishing one does. The Far and Fine, for example, was/is a wonderful rod for close to moderate distance trout fishing. Sorry Orvis decided to drop it....

    SEMI-realistic, Alan? If I were a trout, the screen would have fish lip marks on it! Cool.

    I love this fly. I've fished it for years in the olive version, and trout have been very happy to munch it.

    The original tie for the Maine Gray Ghost used cheek feathers that were cemented as a unit to aid in production tying. If ol' Carrie could do it and not get pilloried, I think you're O.K., Ray!

    Hi, Bruce. They are used for the wings on the traditional version of a Gray Fox. But why not post this question on the Tying Board? Might have more success.

    I've fished the 7 1/2' 3-wt. Three Forks as my go-to small stream rod for years. I prefer a 4-wt. line for casts up to 30 feet, but it's a terrific rod. A good while back I tried to get a blank from...

    Good info and opinions, as usual here. Not everyone can spring for a $70-100 line, especially for multiple rod weights. DaleW made some good suggestions about that. I would also suggest looking into...

    Winston Passport rods

    Hi, folks. Cabela's seems to be clearing out their stock of Winston Passport rods. I'd be interested in a 4 wt., if it's a true 4. Does anyone have any experience with them? Thanks. Chuck

    Aw, it's all just in fun. A little ribbing is part of the "fraternity", isn't it? I put "fraternity" in quotes, partly because when Martha Young (Paul Young's wife) handed me her Driggs model rod...

    About a dozen years ago, a friend had a 9 foot, 4-weight Sage rod. Don't remember the model. He was a pretty experienced fisher, and caster. He (and I) had a devil of a time loading that rod with a...

    Sorry, Buddy. I have to disagree with you. A tyro needs to have a line that is correct for that rod- or maybe a bit heavier, for starters. Then he/she can feel the cast so much better. I'm a pretty...

    I guess the AFTMA line weight standards are just so 20th Century. Don't need 'em anymore, apparently. Rio and Cabela's, among others, have some lines that are listed as being one line weight heavier...
