Just to let everyone know:

I exchanged emails with Charles Osborne, our new webmaster, and he advised me that he has been in a pretty intense training session all week, but will get on to updated & revising the website shortly. Please be patient as he's swamped right now.

Thanks!

General Discussion / Re: Orvis Access Saltwater Fly Line
« Last post by big_bad_John on March 25, 2015, 09:02:01 PM »
Thanks. I noticed the same about the reviews. Nothing negative. I'm planning on using the line again next week and then I'll probably talk to someone at Orvis. I'm going to watch more closely this time to see if it was just the weight of the fly pulling it down.

Yes I agree. I've always had great experiences with Orvis customer service. I bet they'll replace it if I need to.

Thanks.

Outing Chat / Harmon Creek White Bass?
« Last post by Wormdrowner on March 25, 2015, 08:18:43 AM »
Was thinking about heading up to Harmon Creek with Tracy this Saturday. Think the sand bass are still up in the creek or have they moved out to the main lake? Looking for a nice, easy place for her to catch a few and for me to run the freshwater boat a bit.

Some thoughts:
1. Reviews of this line at orvis.com are overwhelmingly positive. No comments on sinking.
2. You could talk to Orvis online (online chat option) to see what they know.
3. Orvis is really good about customer satisfaction. If you bring it to the Westheimer store, I'll bet they'll replace it immediately if you ask.

Damon's Seven Lakes / Re: 2015-03-22 trip with grandson.

Even after all the rain we've been having the fish were doing their thing.

Bass were in the shalllows, looking for food, and the large bluegills were staging in the deeper water just outside the spawning beds.
