I'm guessing your Uniform sink is Type II. In that case there would be a substantial difference in diameter. They also made that line in a Type IV and Type VI (though I'm not positive they did a...

The best new rod for under $300.00 would be the TFO/BVK in my opinion. The only way to do better is to buy used. I own several of the BVK rods and find them light, fast, and very accurate. Almost...

I guess it depends upon whether there are many nymphs in the ponds or lakes. I'm guessing if the wooly bugger quit working most nymphs wouldn't do much better. What you want is as much lifelike...

Help us out a little bit. Are you talking Maine or Alabama, rivers, lakes or flowages? If you're north of the Mason-Dixon line I'd say probably a tip-up would be your likely answer. If south and...

Yes, it is too large. But, that doesn't mean it couldn't be used in a pinch. The 5/6 would have been much more suitable. Other than appearing too large on the rod and weighing quite a bit more...

It depends upon the pattern and size, but most of my flies tied on #4 or smaller are tied on Gamakatsu SL45 bonefish hooks. They look like large trout fly hooks, but are amazingly strong. Since #4...

They might. I've never tried them. Most of my dry stuff up there has been done with LARGE bombers. Truth is, though, that the timeline you're talking isn't the best for dries, whether dead drifted...

The black and green stonefly patterns used up there are a lot different than a stonefly nymph that a trout angler might use. I almost added those two to my list above, but knew they were just a few...

The list is near endless, but I wouldn't go without the Silver RAT, Rusty RAT, Picasse, Green Widow, Sugerman Shrimp, and John Olin flies in my box. I also had luck there with a Lax Blue which you...

Cack-handed

I've never learned to cast with the non-dominant hand up, and believe me I've tried. Most of the casts I use are single speys done Scandinavian style with the RL being done cack-handed. Even though...

Speyfishing

Leo,

I've done quite a bit of canoe fishing on the Restigouche and Matapedia Rivers. It takes a little modification, but speycasting is possible from the middle and the back (actually the front)...

Unfortunately, other than being aware that it exists, I have no information on the details of such a trip. During my trips there I only did saltwater fishing. You might try to Google "Trout Fishing...

Sharks

Lemons can be a fun catch. Blacktips and spinners are incredible. Another common shark on the flats is the nurse shark, which is near impossible to entice to a fly. The toughest part is casting a...

Hi. Welcome to the board. I've fished in CR several times. I might be able to help you. To do so, you should provide some additional information. First, where in CR are you going to be? What...

Clear lines

I've used Monic's clear fly lines in the Bahamas, the Keys, and elsewhere since they first came out. I love them. For one thing, you can get by with shorter leaders which can make casting in the...

I get the feeling that the last three paragraphs were all tongue-in-cheek. If so, well done, as you had me going for awhile. They need to come up with a true tongue-in-cheek emoticom (or not.)

Howie,

1. I think that would make your flies illegal in all scheduled Atlantic Salmon rivers. I'm willing to be corrected on that, but it's adding weight to the hook.

2. That's what I do. ...
