    Yes. I have a packer so it's likely a matter of my poor technique. It takes a while to properly spin, pack and trim hair. Alternatively, I can cut foam and glue it to a hook much faster to...

    Thank you.

    I've paddled the Ultimate 14.5 Solo extensively in FL.

    It's a very seaworthy and comfortable boat. I think it would be great for fishing here in open water. But it is heavier...

    I never mastered spinning deer hair. The main thing I didn't like about it is that with use the deer hair absorbed water and eventually got heavier to cast. That's when I turned...

    Poppers are my "go-to" fly. I started fly fishing with poppers and I'm glad I did because not only are they effective (in warm water) but they require you to learn a good casting stroke. ...
