    A friend of mine was French fly fishing champion a few years back. Whereas in American competition they seem to win boats and trucks, his prize was a box of hooks

    I have never used scented sprays on a fly..or a salmon egg....that's cheating...... I finally got my lighted magnifier setup..the cheap plastic mounting clamp finally gave out ..so I got a steel rod and drilled a hole in a wood area by my couch..its perfect...now I got to find my fly vise or get another...everything else I got still...yeehaw

    so long as you don't put salmon eggs on your nymphs, it isn't cheating...it is OK to spray them with the Berkeley GULP stuff, though...

    For top quality gear for a reasonable price, check out "Reddington" reels....You won't be disappointed...and their disc-drag system is amazingly smooth...
    went and checked them out yesterday, like what I see. drag seemed VERY smooth, and under $90 to boot. thanks for posting on them....

    spring is headed our way. i need to buy a high(er)-end fly reel with a good drag to go with the 9' 6" graphite surf-stik. a regular no-drag fly reel is an invitation to disaster when a big hybrid or rockfish hits your streamer & heads toward a different zip code...
