I'm a big fan of the TFO line and really like my 9' 5wt TiCr 4pc. If I were going for the multi purpose rod, I'd take it up a weight and stick with 9' TiCr.

Litefoot-
I like your list and especially the weight! I had the thought of loading a pack in a similar fashion and keeping it on standby. What sort of alcohol stove do you have?

Gear of the go-light fly fishers

A few years back, I started thinking about all the stuff I was hauling around in my vest-pack and not using. There was for example: a stomach pump, a fly retriever, two knot tyers, lots of fly boxes,...

Nantahala report please?

Hi,
I'd like to see if anyone has fished the Nan lately and could give me a fishing report. I've been there a few times before but not yet this year. Going in a week.
Thanks -
Bill A.

Re: Big South Fork?

Rock Creek is a good stream.
By October the water will be low but don't let that stop you from fishing. I've had some great fishing there in the fall.
There is a road (on the KY side) running...

Re: New Fly Fisher

Hi,
I imagine you will get all kinds of good advise, but the best thing gear-wise I've added to my stuff has to be a water filter bottle. It sure beats the extra weight of packing your own H2O. Also...
