  1. I was looking to make a light cahill, but I don't have some of the materials listed for it. Are there other alternative materials that will serve the purpose just as well for this dry fly?
  2. thanks I'm rather proud of that one.
  3. yes, it is the 1494 reel. not the driveway. but the lawn/street. about 50/50. we went to one of our fishing spots today to really try it out, and well.. let's just say that I felt like a kid just learning how to fish all over again.
  4. thanks for all the replies! I finally bought this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pflueger-Medalist-9-Deluxe-Fly-Kit-3pc/20742841 to start with. I practiced with it yesterday (no fly/hook of course, just a little paper to mimic the weight of a fly) on our street and my daughter was standing at a specific spot on the road and my aim is excellent (always within 1-3" of her feet). I think my aim is better with a fly rod than with a spinning i plan to go out and have a go at the marina down the road from here today. i'll be sure to post a status report
  5. ha! I'd be interested in buying a used rod from someone, assuming it's in the "budget". eesh.. Honestly, I'm not willing to travel all the way to TN to look at and possibly purchase fishing gear. The chattahoochee is a fairly large river. I fish it just below Buford Dam (right at the dam). I've seen many fly fishermen wading out into the middle, when the dam isn't released. When it's released, the only option would be a boat (which we don't have) or from the banks. Other than that, we stick to Lake Lanier and it's many little coves/bays. We recently found a creek/stream with some nice bass, etc. in it that I would like to try.
  6. I figured I would need two separate rods. Thanks for the info. I see them occasionally at pawn shops around here too. But the last one I saw was HUGE (must have been for saltwater).
  7. I'm new to fly fishing, and was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on a good (and affordable) beginner rod/reel/line? We fish for trout in the Chattahoochee river, and also anywhere from the bluegill, crappie, smallmouth, largemouth, spotted, and the striped bass in Lake Lanier. I will be using it the majority of the time (small hands), but I'm sure my fiance would like a go at it too.
  8. what about this? http://thedragfreedrift.blogspot.com/2013/02/fly-tying-dying-feathers-with-kool-aid.html
  9. I can't offer any insight on your questions, sorry. But this is an informative post.. good read
  10. I feel a bit lost on the terminology mentioned here. However, that is an awesome pic! Worth framing!
  11. oh what a great idea! we have an oriental short hair that is mostly white (with a couple spots of "blue") and he SHEDS LIKE CRAZY. you can literally harvest fur from him just from petting him! I'm going to look up the info on dying. Thanks again.
  12. thank you for the warm welcome everyone! and yay tidewaterfly for returning to the south!
