    Straps fit for me better under, this way I still had access to the inside pockets of my vest. By the way I never zip my vest. The only other time I didn't like the box was in a heavy rain. None of...

    Byron I have 2 Richardsons, an old 3 draw that got slightly crushed, and a 4 draw. I always wore them under my vest. Put them aside several years ago when I tried to lighten the load a bit. Although...

    Really Byron a little lead really matters, take a look at the Animas River in Colorado this past summer. Now that is disgusting beyond words, all of which has gone pretty quietly.

    I've been under the impression that rod manufacturers are now designing rods as 4 piece models. Like Byron I have sold most of my 2 piece rods and bought 4 piece. If I want to use them as 2 piece I...

    Byron, I consider it an adult, but as I said I do tie some with a shuck as an x-caddis and a few with a bright green stub of z-lon. Kind of a universal place to start. So until I add the shuck, it...

    Well without the shuck it should be called a "Neff caddis". A gentleman by the name of Sid Neff was tying a caddis as far as I know back in the 60's. Craig Mathews added a z-lon shuck and you have...

    Bought a few back in July, also had 5 wonderful breakfasts too. The only thing he didn't have is a light dun saddle. One other thing Byron isn't showing the best wall either.
