I am goin' fishing this weekend uh huh uh huh uh huh!

Recommended Posts

I have tied a few flies, mostly wooly buggers and a few fun flies. Spiders, ants and a Swamp Witch. The time has come to get 'em wet! I have practiced (wet and dry land) casting, had fun, no problems casting! This weekend I am going to go fishing a few hours north of Edmonton, Alberta. I borrowed a fly rod and reel from work. How do I put the fly on the line? How do I reel in? How do I let im go? Does anyone have any web site suggestions? They have Rainbows and some kind of suckers there, I would love to eat a fish that I catch!

this guy is gettin rediculous. Line is not that fragile and your rod is not that fragile. You do not have to parifin your ferrule either. this fella is s a bit paranoid id say

I wax my ferrules.... St. Croix recommends it....Not sure what exactly it does though..... keep a tight fitting or non slip?? Before I had my Legend Elites... I never knew anyone did was ferrules and never had a problem......

Can't say I've ever waxed my ferrules but I'll treat my guides with silicone line treatment on a regular basis to keep them slick and clean.

Good luck with the fishing bugcam!

I put a little bit of turtle wax on a q-tip and put it on my guides, then take a clean q-tip and polish it off, and I can tell a big difference in the casting.
