8 1/2 and heavy.
Just picked up a Wonderod, and I'd really like to fish it. There are no markings on the rod nor reel seat, so I'm not sure what line weight it'll throw. Google only helped me with approximate dates...
Kinda, but not really...
I built a 5' 4wt. on the same blank used for the Bushnell L'il Streamer rod. I love it.
If you bought the aquanova line, I hope you have better luck with it than I...
Wow! That looks like fun! Nice fish!
Until then, best of luck to you. Hope your recovery is quick!
Of the 14 takes today, only 2 came on flies with eyes. Plenty of refusals, but no more than any other trip. All on the same pattern pictured above!
Research will resume next weekend, provided...
Used to tie 18" or so to the bend of the fly way back in my Eerie Steelhead days. Worked fine. The majority of fish took the bottom fly.
That is cool!!!
I'd go with some sort of trail shoe. I picked up a pair for a Colorado trip off Cabela's clearance page for under $40. Sierra Trading Post might be a good place to start. Sandals work, but are very...
Those eyes disappeared with the first fish I hooked on that fly. The next two casts resulted in two more fish... We may need some more research. I'll volunteer.
I couldn't make it out until 2. It was hot.
There were 2 bluegill.
Down the road, I cast to some gar. I lose close to a dozen fish. I cross over to the other bank to free a snagged fly. I...
When I want my fly to land here, it lands there... I aim in front of a fish, it lands on top of the fish, etc.
Sorry to hear of your loss.
Rest assured, according to His promise, you will be reunited again...
Perfect conditions today for chasing snook off the beach! In usual fashion I broke off more than I landed. Fished a VXP 6 wt. that I recently built.
I had accidentally ordered black guides. I...
Blood knot and super glue.
I have a 1495 1/2 DA that has a patchwork of at least 3 different backings...
1. Make sure the anchor is tied to the rope. CHECK IT NOT ONCE, BUT THREE TIMES. Nothing is more humiliating than trying to run down a wayward kayak on a soft bottomed flat.
I can send you a package of Hareline small, if you'd like. I have two packs that are too small for anything I tie down here.
Forgot about the Eagle Claw Featherlight! Got a blem for 29.95. Perfect for the trunk!
I can't imagine how much fun a channel cat would be on a fly rod! Nice report!
I picked up a cheap blank of eBay years ago, and it is tied for first on my favorites list.
That looks like a blast. If only...
Another great one!
Is this the guy?
Church ended late, so I was on the canal around 12:30. It was hot. I knew I wasn't gonna catch anything. It was windy, so I had brought the fiberglass 5wt.
A gar swims by, I cast and it eats. ...
