  11. Jim, I will post a step by step of my goto surf fly, I 'll post in saltwater tying, topic Cali surf fly. Very fishie pattern.
  12. JimR, You should hit the surf, so much fun never know what you will hook up with.Check out fliflicker, a So Cal surf fly fishing Board. It is great lots of cool pepole in your area. I fish the surf up in San Luis Obispo, I fish the surf a lot it is free and in our back yards.I REALLY want to help spread the word about Cali. surf fly fishing. There is not anything like it in the fly fishing world., I would love to show you how I do my Thing in the surf. After a while you will start thinking less about far off trout rivers and more about the next tide.
  13. Get Some! I think it is so cool that so many are goin' after so many kinds of fish. I dont even know what half of those fish are you guys are getting back east and in the South. I wana get on some of that.
  14. Star wars and fly fishing, YES!! Love the rod, That thing is slick, must be as light as a feather.I would like to see the reel more too.Thanks for sharein'.
  15. Ya, I here ya, I Dont really have any good trout around my area. Who needs trout anyway, When you got golden bones. Fish for what you have at home, that is how you get time on the water. I love dreamin' about Montana and Mexico and Alaska and... But use what you got.
  16. Thinkin' bout how many kinds of fish we all have caught and released on the fly. I am on 22 total: Fresh weter -Trout -Rainbow -Golden (Cali) -Brown -Brook -Large mouth Bass -blue gill -Red ear sun fish -Crappie -Sac river pike minnow -carp -Sqaw fish Salt water - kelp bass -lincod -halibut -Lepard shark -Shovel nose gutair fish -Barred surf perch -Wall eye surf perch -Jack smelt -Mackrel -White croker -greenling Still lots of new fish to target. Stripers and Corbina are on the list to get this year. I would like to here about all the kinds of fish you are all getting in to.
  17. Looks like you got the carp bug as bad as me right now.Those are lookin' mighty purdy. Very similar to what I am tying for the carp swap.your carp vid is cool looks like a fun place to fish, sorry if I am wrong but, you are in Ohio? looks very nice, a little cold for this California surf bum. How long untill the carp fishing slows down in your neck of the woods? I got till mid october or so before they go night night for the winter.
  18. Check out Tim Rajeff's Youtube video, I think it is on youtube, The video is on load and power. He shows how the rod bend at diffrent points on diffrent tapers. I thought it was cool.
  19. Gezz.. 16 species in one year, I'm on 17 species, only in 25 years. Good job, I wanta hook up with a pike on the fly. Whene I was about 13 or so I went to Minnesota with my grandpa, we got pike and I got one large musky, I still recall that day well. Way to go wayne, What others you goin for?
  20. You should had a bolth box to check. I use a ceramic for thread And a metal one for wire.
