re: venice guide finds large rattlesnake on property - ccard257
[quote]I have never understood why people do this. Everyone knows the drill and doubts whatever length you give them since you held it so far out. Why not just hold it up length wise next to your body, which would take all doubt out of it?[/quote] Exactly. Surely there is a tape measure somewhere...

re: Anyone with a F-150? - ccard257
2013 xlt 3.5l w/ 94k. Love it. I have the offroad package which is one of the ways to get the 36 gallon tank (or was that year at least). 500-600 miles/tank is very handy. Biggest downside is this thing is a fricking magnet for people hitting me. No accidents prior to this truck. I've now been...

re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - ccard257
My rule of thumb for bass is 0x or bigger. I don't worry so much about breaking strength as diameter, abrasion resistance is key. Check you leader after every fish. If its abraded, cut and re-tie. If its just a little creek or pond that's not going to have big fish, ignore the above and use what...

[quote]Shoot. A seiko 5 for like $60 is pretty good for what it is. I hear they even keep pretty good time.

[quote]Clinch. is that the problem? [/quote] No. Are you holding your rod correctly while stripping? Rod tip should be down, at or even in the water. Edit: sorry if this comes off as insulting, but if I remember right you just started fly fishing so I want to check the basics. When you are re...

There is decent fly fishing almost anywhere you can fish. Within 1-3 hours broken bow, OK is very popular for trout. Recommend going on a week day or in the rain. A few decent white bass runs in the area, Sabine river is best if you have a boat. Lake fork is close for big bass, Texoma for stri...

big flies for (hopefully) big bass I like an 8 and would go up before down. If you're looking at stripers, pike, etc. as your other large fish, that's the way i'd lean. If your looking at smallies, whites, carp, etc. i'd probably go with a 6. ...

re: Food while Camping - ccard257
if its only for 3 days and you've got a vehicle and an ice chest you can pretty much cook whatever the frick you want. just don't open the ice chest every 5 minutes if you've got sushi you plan to eat on the last day. Or keep a second ice chest with nothing but ice that you don't open at all for a co...
