  1. Do you still watch it with Jimmy and the gang? Been watching for years now!
  2. Dude, thanks for this. Mine were looking a bit haggard and more like a parachute. This was helpful. Cheers.
  3. I will be traveling mid-May to Colorado from Michigan. I haven't flown since 2004 and that was with scuba gear. Any seasoned vets have advice or tips for modern airlines? I will need a weekend of wading clothing, two rods (have tubes), stockingfoot waders and boots and a small sling of the usual. What would you be willing to check/carry on? Thanks.
  4. That's a lot at once. I was just complaining about another 12" here. Good luck.
  5. Solid advice. Really I just need a bass rod but didn't care for the TFO and Orvis they had in stock. Just need to find one that feels good. There is definitely a budget. Thanks!
  6. It really is. I'm in the market for an 8WT and my only local is a Cabelas. I'm hoping to make it to the Midwest Expo so I can actually cast a bunch. Some things you just have to get hands on.
  7. That's good advice. I'm sure my local shop would let me tie a few on both. Didnt think of that. Cheers.
  8. I appreciate the insight. And yes, this will be something I purchase down the road as I progress. Thanks!
  9. This forum has really been an awesome find, and I have only looked around about an hour. After running walleye charters in the Great Lakes for years, I finally picked up a fly rod. You all know the rest of the story. If I'm not playing guitar I'm thinking about fishing. Started a little over four years ago. I love to fish the AuSable, and will be heading out to a retreat on the South Platte in Colorado this year to try my hand at cutthroats. Wintering in my state means it was inevitable for me to dive into tying as well. It looked really intimidating at first but I see the zen even in the mistakes. Just wanted to say hey, and introduce myself before I start firing questions at everyone. Cheers! - Andrew
  10. That model keeps coming up everywhere I ask. Thanks a lot. I am really leaning that way. Cheers.
  11. I was raised on the Lake Erie Islands running walleye charters with my father. I still take the lady out panfishing, but if I'm being honest I have kind of done it all on spin and trolling gear and was looking for something more in-depth. Came across a ragged copy of "Trout Bum" by John Gierach about 4 years ago and slowly began the process of accumulating fly gear. This is my preferred way to fish now and I don't see that changing.
  12. I have an old Cabelas Master Vise, but am kind of unhappy with the quality. It's just OKAY. I would mostly be tying dries and nymphs. Most my streamer friends pray to a Regal, but I'm seeing a lot more professional tyers using a Renzetti. Anyone have a hot take as to why one over the other? Total greenhorn here. Thanks!
