re: Looking bass and sac a lait fly suggestions - ccard257
If they have something that looks similar, the little guy on the bottom right in this picture has been killing it for me on some small ponds lately. [img]http://i.imgur.com/A6tSCqJ.jpg[/img]...

re: Looking bass and sac a lait fly suggestions - ccard257
Plenty of both have been caught on wooly buggers and clousers so that's as good a place as any to start. For the buggers, olive, black, chartreuse, and white are good places to start. Sizes in the 6-10 range. For the clousers, Chart./white, olive/white, Blue/white are my usual colors. 2-6 range ...

re: Anyone do any fly tying? - ccard257
They were recently discontinued but if you can find anyone who still has a Winston passport in a 5wt it is awesome, especially lined about a half-weight heavy. If you happen to find it in a 6, let me know. Also picked up an Allen Volant recently that I really like. It's a 10' 4 weight though, ...

re: Anyone do any fly tying? - ccard257
I've got a cabelas by work and a localish shop by the house so if I need something right now I go to one of those. Bass pro has stuff too if there is one near you. Lately I've been ordering hooks and beads from Allen. Here is a thread from another forum that had a decent list of online retai...

re: Anyone do any fly tying? - ccard257
I bought a vise, a set of basic tools, and the specific materials for a couple of flies I wanted to tie. Then I just added tools and materials as I needed them till I now have way more crap laying around than I thought possible. Looking back I think that was the right way to go. The materials...

re: Beginning fly fishing - ccard257
Lots of good advice in this thread so i'll try to hit a couple of new points... when you do see that indicator go under or do something funky or you just get a funny feeling, lift the rod tip straight up. It might just be the bottom or a rock or weird current but hook sets are free. And it could ...

re: Deer Blind for 2 people - ccard257
you don't need any fancy woodworking skills to build a blind. nail some plywood to a frame of 2x2s and you'll be pretty much there. Lots of good examples with a quick google search. Whether you have it built or build it yourself, you can easily plan for transport. I built one that size last year...

re: TFO BVK Series Fly Rod - Reviews - ccard257
[quote]Their return policy is second to none. Doesn't matter how it's broken I'm told.[/quote] This is correct, although not uncommon with nicer brands. When I broke my TFO it was only $25 to replace. Winston charged $50, neither asked questions. Since TFO is in dallas, I just went over to their ...

re: TFO BVK Series Fly Rod - Reviews - ccard257
I've got that rod in 8wt and its awesome, especially for the price Put a line on it that's about a half weight heavy. I have the Orvis bass on mine right now. As far as distance, I'm not the worlds greatest caster but I can consistently hit 70' with it. I fished with a guide who cast the entire ...

re: Fly Fishing Startup - ccard257
don't forget to budget for and research line too. Line makes a big difference on a fly rod. You may have to try a few to figure out what your rod/you like(s) TFO as mentioned makes great rods for the money. Their BVK in 8wt is a great all around salt/bass rod and one of the better values anywhere...
