? re Hydros sl reel

26 December 2018 - 01:59 PM

Does the Hydros sl have "reeling in line resistance"?  I currently have a 5 wt reel that picks line up easily, by just spinning the arbor.

Trouble with rod

My trusty 5 wt that I've used for my entire fly fishing career {all 3 yrs}, is giving me trouble lately and seems to getting worse. The ferrules come apart regularly. Is there a quick fix for this?  I suppose I could just super glue and make it into a two or one piece.

small salmon fly hooks

15 May 2018 - 06:45 PM

I'm looking to tie some smaller size hair wing salmon flies, {for fishing}, blue charm, thunder and lightning, etc. The obvious places stock sizes down to 8. I would like to tie some size 10 and 12. Does any know where to source these, or have alternatives.

A tip of the hat to members of this Forum. I made good use of tips, information, and fly patterns found here. They added positively to my trip to Florida. I managed to catch Ladyfish, Spotted sea trout, Snook, Mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, Flounder, Redfish, Gafftopsail catfish, Pompano, Silver perch, Bluefish, Lizard fish, Whiting, Pinfish, Jack crevalle. I had twenty fish days in Rookery bay,and off Crystal River, Bird creek and Cedar key. The area I enjoyed the most was St George Island, I spent 4 days wading the flats on the bay side. Top flies were the Clouser, Seaducer, and Glass Minnow type of streamer  all copied off this site.


That's me wearing boots and waders to the beach.

I have browsed thru a few salt water patterns. It seems that pink is a legit color for Florida saltwater patterns. I noticed a u tube video touting bubble gum pink, paddle tail soft plastic as a top color and lure for sea trout. Do many favor pink materials in tying for the Florida gulf?
