On a package of Dai-Riki hooks....do they have a website listed? or corporate contact info? The distributors we buy from don't sell them.

Favorite Hooks?

Just a general question for everyone. What brands of hooks do you like best? I'm trying to figure out if I should trim some things out...or more importantly stock something we don't now.

Thanks...

Bigsur,
I don't have any actual evidence to support this, but it seems that around the full moon, especially on nights with clear skies, the fishing reports from anglers aren't very good. I suspect...

Sometimes the higher quality reels have much less room for error or corrosion. They are machined to such close tolerances. I know on Ross Reels if you oil the spindle it can actually cause...

Mark,
I'm not 100% sure what the fly is that you are asking about. It is either a modification of a Rubberlegged Dragon or a modification of an Egan's Headstand. It might be some fly that someone...

The FlyRise would work very well. Another one to look at also, depending on the size of the rod is the Orvis Clearwater Large Arbor Reel. It is less than $100.

I usually line my rods with the line weight given for the rod. Sometimes I'll use a heavier line such as a SA GPX line to help load the rod a bit more.

FlyRed,
The RIO Gold is a WF line. We were using 5wt on a 5wt. The line loads faster rods well but isn't as heavy as a RIO Grand or SA GPX. I don't think you need to go up a line size with the...

Flyred,
When the sales rep had the rods here we were casting them with RIO Gold fly lines. That line loaded the rod better than the lighter trout lines.
