  1. Exact same screw broke on my renzetti. I have to admit that I did not ask them to replace for free. The $6.95 was not that bad but I think S & H was like $10.00 more. I was not to happy.
  2. Thanks to all for the welcome and to vices on the Walleye, I was on a trip for smallies and northerns in Ontario and heard that the walleye were right at the dock in 8 to 10 feet of water. Knowing that they feed on minnows, I put on a baby clouser chartreuse over white calftail with a little flash between the colors. I find I get better action out of the calftail hair in the smaller sizes. I used a 6 wt sinking tip and after dinner every night about 15 minutes before sundown would catch one on every cast right from the dock. This was good relaxation and fun after throwing big clousers and whistlers all day with an 8 wt.
  3. Hello to all. I am relatively new to flyfishing and tying, only getting serious over the last 5 years. I am originally from Florida but now live in Minnesota and belong to two flyfishing clubs, "Minnesota Flyfishers" predominantly trout and the "Flychuckers" a mixed bag of all including warmwater species. We fish mainly for Smallmouth, Largemouth, Northerns, Muskies, Sunnies and yes we even catch Walleyes on fly up here. We all enjoy trips to saltwater destinations also. The trout fishing is also quite good in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The only problem with living here is going through the long winters without fishing. I really enjoy tying flies and I believe it adds a lot of satisfaction to catch fish on a fly you have tied yourself. I also build my own rods now and really enjoy this hobby. I look forward to learning and sharing experiences with all of you and am certainly willing to pass on any knowledge that I have with respect to this wonderful sport.
