  1. Msg for Troutbum2 and all others. I'm new at this game and was wondering why you do not recommend the barbed eyelets? I find them easy to use and haven't had a problem with them yet. I haven't caught any thing over 3 lbs though... Explain in detail please !
  2. Thanks for the welcome! D. Flogger, your comment brings back memories of years past. I was stationed North of Tokyo and went fishing up in the mountain streams. We rented fishing gear from the locals. It was not much, a ten foot cane pole with line and a hook on it. Not true fly fishing but close. We bought live bait, such as bugs and minows. We had a group of GI's and we caught many rainbow trout. The one thing that stands out is that I caught a golden trout. The local Jap was so happy for me saying that I was very lucky. I didn't even know there was such a trout. This all happened back in 1966. Further research told me that the golden was not native to Japan. I believe they originated somewhere in Colorado so they had to be relocated to Japan. I saw a big rainbow caught out of a space of water that was only about 2 feet wide. The other memory of that was that the wives of the GI's cooked up the fish, some deep fried and some baked. They tasted just great....
  3. I'm a 66 year old dog learning new tricks. I enjoy fishing of all sorts. I had to give up tourney bass fishing due to the long hours in the sun. I enjoy wading in the streams at a slow pace. I'm sure I will have many questions for the lodge forum. I'm also learning about these PC's and all the options in the forums.

    I'm new to this forum and fairly new to fly fishing. The question I have is: What are the pros and cons of the different fly rods pertaining to 2 piece virsus 3 and 4 piece rods? All opinions appreciated.
