Ifly has a trade up program where they give a store credit for your old equipment.  I've used it and think its pretty nice.

Tying Chat / weighting EP flies
« on: March 29, 2013, 07:13:09 PM »
I'm tying some EP fiber bait fish patterns.  Even when sparsely tied on 2/0 hooks, they barely sink.  I fished one on a sink tip line in Belize easily enough, but on a floating line?

Any suggestions on the best way to weight these flies?  Lead wire, bead or cone heads? Mid-shank or behind the eye?  I'd like a fairly slow but dependable sink rate.

thanks,

jerry

General Discussion / Would be fly Fisher
« on: February 05, 2013, 06:56:46 AM »
I met a chap from Wales on Sunday, who comes to the United States every quarter for two weeks. He very much wants to get into fly fishing, and asked me to recommend a good introductory book to fly fishing generally. I know Dave Hughes has written a book on basic fly fishing (which I have not read), but I am looking for additional recommendations from members that I can pass on to him.

Over in the UK, he will probably be fishing for trout on rivers, using a one-handed rod (not a spey rod). But he is looking for a general introductory book, not one limited just to trout fishing.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

yes, and it happened two days after I turned 66.  It's good to know there is still life left in the old dog.

Outing Chat / fishing at D7L on Nov. 3
« on: November 04, 2012, 02:59:55 PM »
Yesterday, I went down to Damon Seven Lakes to fish with the estimable Michael J Arnold as my guide. At his insistence, I tied on an orange crazy critter that I had tied the day before. Fishing was slow, but I finally got a hook up right before encroaching lightning shut us down. All in all, not a bad day.

Events and Information / Re: Mini Expo/Knot tying table
« on: July 15, 2012, 09:30:41 AM »
I use both davey (Wotton's) knot and the Orvis knot to attach flies.  They are similar and both are easy to tie.  I think either works better than the clinch knot, improved or otherwise.
