    I'm glad you guys liked the interview. I'm especially touched that Uncle Homer sent me a nice, autographed 8x10 of the photo I used in the web landing page. The guy is about as cool as they get - I...

    An Interview with Two Angling Legends

    I've just published an interview with Homer Circle, aka Uncle Homer, on the www.flyfishohio.com web site. He's joined in the interview by Glen Lau, perhaps our greatest angling cinematographer and...

    Re: New Sage smallmouth and Bass rods

    The rod is purpose designed to deliver top water and 'vertical drop baits' to targeted cover. It will work wonderfully with something like a big Calcasieu Pig Boat. I think it will be fine with...

    Re: New Sage smallmouth and Bass rods

    The line that comes with the Sage rod is made, as has been previously determined, by Rio. I asked the folks from Ria and the line isn't a "Rio" product but is a Sage product manufactured by Rio. It...

    Re: New Sage smallmouth and Bass rods

    The rod is completely graphite. It is sold with the line and according to Jerry Siem it is designed for that specific line. The line is also sold separately by Rio. If on the chance you want to...

    Re: New Sage smallmouth and Bass rods

    I don't see how that rule passage bans fly rods. It doesn't specifically mention them, but it also doesn't specifically ban them. It does say you can only fish one rod under 8' at a time - but it...

    Re: anyone use indicators for bluegill?

    I often use indicators for panfish both on stillwaters and in creeks. My favorite indicator is one I've NEVER seen mentioned in the fly fishing lit - a little, tiny Thill float. They're 2 for $2 at...

    Well I know what I'll be looking for at the World Fly Fishing Retailer trade show next week! This is excellent news. It's about time the old guard decided to expand the horizons of the sport.

    Great idea, a flat wing Muddler. I'll have to try that one out. It sounds a lot like a Zoo Cougar, but with saddle hackles....

    Flat Wing Streamer for Fresh Water

    I've fished the Nine-Three and the Needebah, but never really got excited about traditional flat wings. I read Ken Abrames book several years ago and immediately got hyped on his Razzle Dazzle style...
  15. Re: The Partridge and Yellow- A Classic Trout Fly

    For the waters I fish I prefer a lighter wire hook so I can fish the fly in the top 5" of water. Primarily a caddis imitation on the local trout stream. When I fish them on bottom I hang one off of...
  16. Re: The Partridge and Yellow- A Classic Trout Fly

    If I'm fishing stillwater I like a very slow hand-twist retrieve. Perhaps 1 to 2 inches per second. I also like to use a flourocarbon tippet to sink the fly. I've also found it effective to hang a...

    Nice Ties!

    The thorax of the flies shown at the top of the thread is touch-dubbed mole. You can use any of a a number of soft, fine furs or even synthetics, but mole is a bit more traditional and...

    I might be heading your way in the next couple days - and possibly a few times over the next three or four weeks. Care to fish the "Big Water"? I'm even thinking of a trip up to Presque...

  20. The Partridge and Yellow- A Classic Trout Fly

    This fly has been catching trout for more than 500 years, but it's my "secret weapon" for post-spawn finicky smallmouth. Give it a try for bluegill, too. I think you'll agree this is a fly that you...
