    WTB Fly Reels

    looking for a couple of used 5wt fly reels. Nothing really fancy or expensive, preference would be Redington Crosswaters or something of that sort of quality. If it has line on it already all the better.
  4. Posted in the for sale forum but though I would ask here as well. Looking for a couple of used 5wt fly reels.

Got a deal on a couple of 5wt rods so I'm just looking for a couple more reels to put on them. Thank you for looking, I appreciate it.

    TK 810 4/0 Jig hooks

    have you asked on Tackle Underground by chance? it's a lure building forum page and they are a TON of help. there are some big time bait builders on there that may very well be able to help you out. I use the "wire baits" forum for jig questions. if you haven't then give them a shot and see if that can be of any help to you.

    midge, scud and other fly questions

    so what would a guy throw on a fly rod in a boat with say 2 or 3 units running? I see guides and people doing that in the trophy area around ramp using fly rods as they drift along. a lot of times it seems with an indicator. What is good in that scenario for a fly rod?

    Trout fly questions

    I posted this on the Taney section but I also wanted to ask here as well since people don't visit both places all the time. any answers are appreciated. When midge fishing, are these always fished as a dropper off a jig? Or you guys fish a double midge pattern or even just a single midge pattern? When scud fishing, do you fish the scud on the bottom or really close to the bottom? Is this fished solo or do you double it up with another scud or midge or something of the sort up above it? Besides a scud and a midge what are other flies that are good for fishing with an indictor or used as a jig dropper? Trying to get a Trout fly fishing kit put together. How and when do you fish egg flies, san juan worms and mega worms? I'm assuming water flowing and with weight added, maybe even a drift rig of sorts for the egg flies?

    Tragic Event

    The whole thing is bothering me badly. The fact that there are 2 operators on the boat with cell phones, there is communication with the home base. They were on top of a giant mountain that you can see for miles and miles not 10 minutes before they got in the water. Last but not least the cell phone video from inside the duck that made it to shore showed them by the Belle and it shows 4 people in the video and none with life jackets on. I'm just broken hearted today.
