    Clint

    I like idea of using silicone as opposed to using Weldwood that Joe Hyde used. I would think it would be a lot easier to remove from fiberglass it it became necessary. Never thought about...

    I also have that rod in a 5wt. I am currently using an older (1/2 wt heavy) Rio Gold wf5f line on it. And really like it. Loads well off the tip for close work and longer casts as well. I would also...

    I've always used a vest when trout fishing. I bought an Orvis sling pack when they first came out and after a few trips with it just didn't like it. With my vest I am more organized and know where...

    Just remind your "beginner" to be patient. If they've never cast a fly rod before, learning on a short 6' - 7' will have it's challenges.

    In the summer, whether I wet wade, wear hip boots or waders, I wear a pair of nylon quick drying convertable pants. That way on the drive home, I just zip the legs off and wear them a shorts.

    Try Aqua Seal, but my experience as others have suggested is that once the boots start leaking it's time to replace them. I think you can get a good pair of waders from Cabelas for around $100. By...
