    Having just spent my first weekend at #47 last week, I would have to say that I would do it solo but be very careful. It is a tough hike in on a pretty established trail but there are a lot of rocks...

    Pick a big bushy fly that moves water. Cast at cover, strip fast, and repeat. When one follows, don't let your heart come out of your chest. Enjoy and good luck.

    Since you are using a spray and no how to put it on thin, go ahead and give it several coats. It won't hurt. If you do get a run, you can always sand it out after letting it cure and reapply. Most...

    To me it doesn't look like there is any varnish on the rod or wraps. Maybe one coat on the wraps. Typically you won't see any indentations on the tread wraps. Some builders will go ultra thin on...

    One of my favorite creeks down my way is loaded with drum. They are spooky but will take a crawfish if you get it in their feedling lane. They will definately put a bend in the rod.
