5 driftless rods?

Like most of us I'm guessing, I'm always thinking about my next fly rod. I like the idea of waiting for closeouts, sales, and even used rods to obtain them on the cheap, but occasionally I find one and I'm not sure if it's worth it, if I'd use it, if it's the right length, etc. So I got to thinking ...

Re: Wading Boot Outsoles

Thanks for all your thoughts. For now, I've ordered the Orvis Ultralights which have Vibram rubber soles. I like the idea of the hiking boot feel. I'm going to forego the studs this fall (and for the off chance I get out over the winter) and will add them later if I miss them. I'm a little skeptical...

My wading boots are officially done. I'm wondering what everyone is using for outsole material. Mine were studded felt and they were great. I don't remember slipping even one time in them. As I look at newer models though - like the two most recent offerings from Orvis, they don't even have a felt o...

Re: Wounded Warrior Fly Tieinf

This is great - a good cause and a reason for me to dig out and get back on the vise after moving a few months back! Put me down for a dozen as long as it stays an end of March deadline. Let me know how to get them to you. Also, I know this program is geared toward fly fishing, but is there ever any...

With no rain to speak of in the forecast until that night, I think you will find a pretty decent amount of fishable water by Wednesday, especially if you're willing to drive around just a bit.
