    We will need to lock in dates with Miles.

    WTB: Supreme 207XP or TopWatwer E Class with Jet

    I very impressed with the jet boats popular on the Current River. Lots of new and used options out there. Top Waters, Shanees, and Supremes are great too. It depends on what you want.

    Question about Nanofil

    Gee a Whiz Gavin, I wish you would try it on a non critical trip first. I love it, but I’d hate for you to spool up and hate it.

    Question about Nanofil

    I don’t remember having any problems with it freezing to itself on the spool. I guess it might, but it didn’t last Saturday or Sunday morning. I try not to go when it’s less than 20 degrees unless somebody Asks me to go.

    Question about Nanofil

    I like having a weak link to break when I have too and I don’t want to burn through braid or nano when doing lure changes.

    Question about Nanofil

    Gavin, I was using Power Pro 4/15 (I think-it’s been a little while) and had more issues with getting loose line coming off the spool than any issue with Nanofil. Yes, you get twist with Nanofil and with braid, but neither has the “body” of mono or co-poly to cause the tangle issues. The twist in nano is usually just the last couple of feet and you can get most of it out by pulling the nano thru your fingers I liked the no stretch easy strike detection and hook sets with braid, but did not like that noise of braid going through my guides or the decreased casting distance associated with braid. I would have two rods one with braid and one with co-poly and same weight Zig Jig tied on both. The co-poly casts further with less effort. first trip with Nanofil, I kept throwing my Jig way up the bank because the Jig was going lots further with less effort in the cast than my braid rod or copoly rod. i was given my first spool of nano by a friend with an industry connection. I thought it was just another braid. I had no expectations of it out performing braid and certainly had no idea that it was going to become the line I use on spinning 90% of the time. I don’t get anything out of preaching the Gospel of Nanofil. I just think it is a superior product and I am amazed that so many struggle with it or dislike it. It isn’t a perfect product. Light baits in wind is an issue, but I’m gonna use it until something better comes along. I use 6,8, and 10 lb. if I need something stronger than that I will go back to braid (Power Pro 8/20 or whatever).

    Big brother is in on every digital conversation. You should have no delusions about privacy.

    Question about Nanofil

    I use small diameter tippit for fly fishing and fluro for bass fishing, but not a user of fluro for leader with my nano

    Question about Nanofil

    Yeah Pete, I do. I would not consider Lower visibility to be worth the extra BS and expense of a fluro line BUT AGAIN everybody should do what they are happy with
  14. Ham

    Question about Nanofil

    I don’t understand why ppl use Fluorcarbon lines for leader material. I’ve never read an explanation or justification for putting up with the difficulty getting good knots from fluro. What upsides offset the potential downsides?
  15. Ham

    Question about Nanofil

    I think a leader knot has failed on me ONCE on a fish. If you hang up and try to pull free, it’s 50/50. Ill be glad to demonstrate Alberto to anyone that fishes with me or just tie your leader on
