    Classic Ross Cimarron Reel and Spare Spool

    A recent addition to an already embarrassingly large number of reels and spools that I've amassed over the years has led me to the difficult decision to start selling some that aren't getting their...

    Lamson Litespeed Spool

    Longshot I suspect, but I'm looking for a spare spool for a Lamson Litespeed, and there are two models that are interchangeable apparently and would work with my reel. One is the Litespeed G5, and I...

    Sure have missed your reports Scott, especially given what has become such a sleepy state of the board in general. Thanks much for sharing!

    Hmmm, that doesn't sound familiar. Seems like it could be something with the board software, perhaps the admin or someone else can chime in?

    The native photo editing app in Windows 10 is called, originally enough, Photo, and I assume that's the one that opens when you double click on any given photo. Once it opens up, you'll...

    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I don't trust the electronic keypads like I do the good old-fashioned combination locks. Unfortunately those are virtually impossible to find these days. Did your...

  11. Costa Del Mar sunglasses, brand new, never used

    I know things are kind of slow on this corner of the board, but thought I'd try offering these up to my fellow fly fishers first before posting to the broader public on FB Marketplace. I have a pair...

    I don't fish lakes a lot, but when I have, it seems like the movement/retrieve that you mention is more important than the specifics of the fly itself. Keeping the nymph at or near the bottom is more...

    I'm anything but an expert, but I've been happy with the TFO BVK 8' 3 wt. rod with the available conversion kit to turn it into a 10' czech nymphing rod. The price of both is still pretty reasonable,...

    You could get an endless number of recommendations on this, but in my view, I'd just buy something you can afford and like the looks of and leave it at that. I've spent a fair amount of money on...

    It might take some experimentation, but maybe a little rubber o-ring or even one of those small rubber bands for braces. You'd probably have to double it up and/or find something small enough to...

    Don't forget that the VPS (introduced slightly later) was the same blank as the RPL, just with less fancy hardware. I have that one in a 6 weight and it definitely is a fine rod. Expand your search...

    We have both in this market, and have historically had little or nothing in the way of local fly shops. This sale has been rumored for a while, and was something I had hoped wouldn't come true. These...

    I recently purchased a rod with the sliding rings as well, the first I've ever owned like that. Mine has a cork reel seat, so perhaps that leads to better performance than what you've experienced,...
