  1. Hi old hat Hope you will reconsider. I am going to move the due date to October 30th. You can do a very easy leader by using tippet ring for each step down in your tapered sections. Just use an improved cinch knot to attach the tippet to the ring. Easy peasy
  2. Hi Old Hat There are a number of configurations for Tenkara. I'm talking about a combination of a level line and leader or a braided line and leader . Some people incorporate Czech nymph leader formulas making sighter leaders for nymphing . If you'll sign up I can point you to some links and resources.
  3. Hey Dave So glad this was new to you. Usually when I give someone more than they asked for, an apology soon follows, lol. Hope it helps you with your nymphing too .
  4. Hi David Have you seen George Daniels leader formulas? Also the Czech nymphing leaders are good also.

I've done a bit of tenkara line/ leader fabrication research and experimentation, but I'd like to see your links. Hopefully you've turned up something I haven't. I am always looking to learn something new.</p></blockquote>
  6. Hi Bob It's a really fun way to fish. So simple and more focused and for me, meditative. If you're looking for good rods, TFO's soft hackle series is super. Enjoy!
  7. Hi David HE Thanks for joining. You're in. I'm going to limit the swap to the first six. Once we have all six ill set a new due date
  8. Hello everyone: I'm going to make the swap limited to the first six. That leaves only two more. Once we get six I'll set a new due date. Come on guys lets get this going. If you need help with patterns or leader formulas let me know and I'll send you some links
  9. It's been quite a while since I've been on this forum but I'm ready to get things moving again in my tying skills. Tie 12 kebari fly patterns of your choice and 12 Tenkara leaders. Swap limited to the first 12 to respond "I'm in". Due date October 15th. 1. Troutnabout : #16 biot kasa kebari sulphur, 12.5 ft tapered sighter leader. 2. Rockworm 3.JBurge 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
  10. I'm going to Hartford the third week of october and want to flyfish local waters. Where do you suggest?
  11. I'll tie #12 red quill since quill gordon is already taken. Where can I get Rhode Island Red quills?
  12. Masterfully tied Jaydub. Impressive!
  13. You got that right. I'm never gonna sell it. just didn't want to do anything to de value it. I can't wait to land my first fish on it. Unless my daughter has a son,it will go to my nephew who is my fishin buddy
  14. Wow, thats interesting, it's just part of the original manufacturing? That's even better cause I like the comfort grip design on the handle. looks like it will only need some ferrule replacement and some re-wrapping on thread.
  15. Here's some initial photos of the rod.reel and creel. Better ones to follow.
  16. Steeldrifter sounds like it's the $60- $80 range. Needs some re-wrapping and guide replacement. also, comfortgrip handle is dried out and has split rings showing. Thinking about having it restored so I can use it. I'll post a pic later today. Thanks for the info
  17. Thanks troutguy. That's a great idea !
