    Sorry, I just noticed the message. No I'm not worried, just want to make a good choice based on sound, logical advice and of course experience. between you and oakman I've made up my mind that I'm gonna own that 12'9 11 and since I not a rod builder I,m gonna ask mike to build it. did you know that there is a place that still has a limited amount of that beach line in intermediate and sinking

    hi Connor, was wondering if you can tell me if there is a substantial diff. between the 12'9" 11wt and the 12" 3"10wt as far as fish play. at least in your opinion. I've been looking at these rods and although I would like a rod that will push through the wind and get good distance, I don't want to feel like i'm fighting a schoolie with a broomstick. Am I wrong? any guidance would be a help

    Connor, I have two float tubes that I am not using. Both have been stored for several years and I am looking to get rid of them. Both are made by Bucksbags I believe. one is red and the other is tan and green. I took out the inner tube type rubber bladder and put in a light weight silicone bladder. They have back pack straps and I have two sets of fins. I would need to dig them out and blow them up and make sure they are good to go. I will sell both to you for the price of one type deal. I just want to get rid of them to someone that can use them. Drop me a message at Jamieh1257@yahoo.com and we can discuss them.

    Connor,
    Fly fishing and fly tying are two separate though related activities. Over the past 70 years I have done some fly tying some serious and some just to save money. Now I do a little just to save money. The so called cheap flies from Blue Cafe http://www.blueflycafe.com/ were recommended to me by a guide. They are just as good as any fly most folks tie and are tied on the best hooks available.

    For myself now, I just tie simple flies like the olive wooly bugger in all sizes with whatever junk feathers and stuff I have; including plain old hooks. With few exceptional situaltions,they will and do catch trout as well as the most expensive flies.

    Hooking the bottom and losing flies is the way to catch fish since 90% of the time they are on the bottom. Fancy flies and fancy casting do not catch the most fish. When you have time and money you can get into the fly tying thing full blast which it is for some fishermen.

    "When a fish is caught on bait, I feel bad for it being so gullible, unable to resist - often gut-hooked. When a fish is caught on a lure, I sometimes feel it's been abused especially if there are barbed galvanized treble hooks or umbrella rigs involved. But when I catch a big, smart striper (or a native steelhead, or a double-digit bonefish, or a remote lagoon tarpon, or....) on a self-tied fly, I feel that neither of us have any shame when we look eye to eye." -Juro
