The increased acidity literally dissolves the exoskeletons of krill. These skeletons are made up of calcium carbonate. Hey! maybe I should look at the glass as half-full, this might just keep...

While War and Peace will certainly work, I think Moby Dick is much more apropo given what you'll be building. Additionally, even though Hemingway was rather economical with words, you...

I've tried rod wrappings tools and never liked them as well as simply wrapping by hand. Place your spool of thread in a coffee mug and run the thread through a book with several books placed on top...

Fluorocarbon is notorious for slipping knots. The palomar will take care of this problem at the hook. I don't doubt the other knots that have been recomended will work also. The palomar is just...

Gunner,
I hadn't heard about the 770SW and it looks like it has some nice improvements over the very similar 720SW. Besides being rated to over 3x the depth of the 720, it looks like they've...

Silvers are on an odd-year schedule? That's the first I've ever heard that one!

Use an interchangeabl tip line like a Rio veri-tip and you'll be covered. There's no need for extra spools.

jlsmithii:

Yes, you're absolutely right that the drag applied by a reel increases as line is removed. This is because the torque required to make the drag slip is constant. So as the lever arm...
