    really? do you think that a rod company is obligated to replace an accidentally broken rod? Sounds to me like they went above and beyond by replacing it for a nominal fee.
  3. Clouser's Deep Minnow and Wooly Buggers, it's nice to have a top water too. Those will get you fish for sure, for Wooly Buggers I usually go with Olive tones and with Clouser's just tie them sparse. Carp I can't help you though I have seen them heavily feeding on top for caddis flies on the Fox so maybe some larger Caddis patterns (size 12,14)
  4. anyone doing this? I'm thinking about getting a line and heads for my 6wt and I'm looking for recommendations. Rio 250 grain?

    The Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club

    I stumbled upon the Golden Gate Casting club in 1990 with my then girlfriend(now wife) while walking through Golden Gate park. There were only 2 people casting, a man and a woman. The guy could shoot line like you wouldn't believe, or at least I couldn't at the time. It had been a good 12 years since I had tried to fly cast(fish), watching that was one of the things that got me fishing again later in life.

    I have a friend who intentionally says "the Jewels" in an ironic fashion and now his kids say it with no irony intended. Steve, we should wack some yellow balls some time. Don, Are you going to start the smallie noodling league?

    my first really decent sized bass was on a blue/purple Nick Creme pre-rigged worm when I was a kid. It was at the National Bureau of Standards in Gaithersburg MD. We used to sneak under the fence, probably get shot these days trying that.
