    I've fished my 5 WFF Green Mountain all year thus far for LMB, Bream, and Montana trout. They work, float, and cast reasonably well. The only shortcoming is the short length. I think mine is also...

    Water Mocassin

    I've had copperheads cross my path on the tee box thinking it was a stick. The most recent surprise was fishing my lake in the early evening in the dark with a headlamp and catching LMB and Brim...

    I used to carry my 2 piece rods on trips but the last time was 2006. I've gotten to carrying my 3/4/5 wt rods on a fishing daypack along with flies, waders, jacket and sometimes my vest. This last...

    Backing?

    I've had trout take me into the backing about 10 times in the last 6 years. Not much but when you do hook that wild/native 16/18/20+ fish on a 5-7x tippet on a river watch out. 2 weeks ago I was in...

    I've had that experience once when I remembered wading at chest level was asking for trouble and I didn't want to test a myth so I backed out. I'm sure you can't trap air under your waders unless...

    Winston WT, LT and BIIX would all make good choices. Sage in the SLT, TXL, etc... Orvis gives you a Helios which casts like a BIIX to me. So many choices but I myself don't look at a number but at...

    When I learned to fish, it was described as "more sportsmanlike" to just catch and release. I was an impressionable 15 y/o laddie. Since then I've taken my share of trout that over the years I've...

    DG I'm with you on this. I too bought a 5wt/WFF Orvis line for $8 on Sierra Trading Post. It floats just as much as my Rios, Wonderlines and Cortlands and casts quite nicely too. I've caught a...

    Catch and Release
