    I only used Tenkara rods for about a year. ( They are too limited in range for the rivers where I spend my time. )

    Hmmmmm....

    I haven't tied a traditional parachute style fly for years.

    In 2011, I started using the 90 degree hackling technique, aka 9dh. The best description of this technique in the the FOTW archives, at...

    John -

    I hope someone has something that you would like and can make a reasonable deal for a used rod.

    But if nothing works out for a used rod, I suggest looking at a TFO BVK 8'6" for 4 wt rod,...

    You are quite welcome.

    Another possibility, depending on how far along you are in building a new jig, is the personal furling machine from the eclectic angler. It is currently listed as out of...

    A couple weeks ago, I became acquainted with a young couple ( 30ish ) who are early into a seven month 48 state tour to fish and find waterfalls. A recent entry in their blog reminded me of the...

    Hmmmmm...

    There are very few fly patterns, if any, that one could learn to tie from the content in the Fly Tying section of the website archives.

    There are 19 years worth of patterns and ideas on how to tie...

    The Thompson is one of my favorite smaller rivers. I haven't been up there in the fall, so I can't tell you what to expect. And it is a bit of a drive from Missoula, but a pretty drive at that.

    Castwell Knot

    Several years ago, I attached a furled flouro leader ( shorb loop at the butt end ) to a Rio nymph line.

    Good to see some real fishing reports posted. Don't find those carp any more appealing than in years past, but good for you and your success chasing them.

    Yep - 28" is a BIG surprise.
