Howdy, I'm just getting into Fly Fishing this year and was wondering what people here recommend in terms of gear. I currently live in Southwest Montana, so I'm looking for a 6 or 5 weight 4 piece 9 foot rod. I'm currently looking at one made by LL Bean on eBay, but there is also a "swap meet" for Fly Fishing gear coming up this Saturday. What brands have a reputation for being higher end, reliable, and durable. Also, does anyone know of a good bag for hiking that a travel tube could attach to?
You've chosen a good weight, size, and configuration for all-around general purposes. Beyond that you start splitting hairs and it doesn't really matter for a beginner.
I would suggest though that you don't go cheap on the rod. It is worth investing about 150 for a good rod, not much worse than the higher end rods, yet a huge step up from the $50-60 budget ones. Manufacturing technology is amazing nowadays and it's super expensive to make a fantastic rod. If you have to go cheap do so... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My friend has two milsurp ones I think they're polish, they combine to make what I think he called a lavi. Was like a 2-3 man round house and was very warm. All you needed extra was to fashion up a stick for one center pole. Neat huh
It's not often that I interrupt your routine and perhaps it's not all that topical, but I have a small request to make - I represent this board in the 4CC, which, for the uninitiated, is a tournament between teams that represent boards run in Pro Evolution Soccer for a bit of fun, and I've run into a small dilemma, reaching out to you for help.
Specifically, I want music from you. Soundtrack needs updating, as it were, so pitch in and show me the songs that you feel encapsulate /out/ as a board. From your submissions,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>699467 Truth be told though of you don't wanna go and enjoy the outdoors you never will embrace it and it'll be a waste of time. Talk to some people at your gym and see if anyone does hikes. How old are you and do you work?
Depends on how big of a pond we're talking about and what species of fish you want to stock it with. It also depends on if you'll be primarily doing catch and release fishing or if you'll be taking fish out of the pond on a regular basis to eat.
My 70 year old father put a pond in on our wood lot. I borrowed a d6 cat Dozer and damed off a brook that usualy runs dry in summer. He's a member of a local wildlife club they have built a fish hatchery box. It's currently has about 100000 rainbow trout eggs that will be hatching round April. They stock local lakes for fishing we usualy keep around 300 each year
You are gonna loose some from eagles, Hawks , raccoons n local kids sneaking in to fish. It's nice to be able to walk out back door n go fishing whenever you want. We even got funded through... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
