  1. Good info, I saw the Skinner video and i also got the feeling he was trying to fail with the inlines. I spent the better part of Sunday replacing all the rusted and sketchy hooks and ran out of trebles. Will set up some inlines and test them this spring/summer.
  2. Anyone replace the trebles on bombers,sp minnow etc with inline vmc hooks? Does it effect the hookup ratio?
  3. I would rather see cars like that Pat. i couldn't stand when the dads would build cars for the kids. We had some cars that you knew were built from components bought online. The only thing the kid did was take it out of a box at weigh in. Told one dad that his kids cars would only be allowed to run in No rules class next year. Was very gratifying when i showed whole troop how to build legal and fast cars that blew the doors off the dad built cars.
  4. I have 2 sets of youth skis, poles and possibly boots sitting around taking up space. I will check with ski shop to see if binders are on indemnification list. volkl ac jr 140 with marker m7.0 demo binders for 218 to 315 bsl. Rossi FunGirl 130 with Salomon binders for up to 4.5 DIN. If my shop says they can still legally work on binders all yhey need is a tune up to edges. You can have them for shipping cost or meet me on long island(i work on the road in nassau/suffolk)

  6. Thanks for the heads up on the tunoids. i guess its time to start using my 6 weeks of pto left to chase the albies bonita and blackfish. That looks like a crazy good time on a SUP.
  7. Rods and reels received yesterday.They look and feel brand new,Thanks Tom
  8. sounds good will send payment later today if you get me your payment info. Off to dr to see if i need knee replaced,wont be home till tonie
  9. I could use the Tradewinds xs8,xs10 and the 789Torrent to fill in for some broken gear. Would you Do $500 for a package deal.
  10. In my own opinion having fished the eastern sound since the 70's the quantity of large(10# +) Tog are definitely getting thinned out. Tons of smaller fish everywhere but since they grow extremely slow the pressure put on them will cause devastating effects if fished to the brink. That being said they are my favorite fish.
  11. Thanks for the info, friend owns an apple orchard and a tree company is right down the road. time to start bribing with smoked fish and brisket.
  12. I am looking for split or whole logs for my smoker . Any one know where on long island they sell in bulk and small quantity?
  13. Johnp Ihave the 10wt for most surf situations but looking for something a little more finesse for wading creeks and shallow flats on the boat.
  14. Mightyrime I want to get my hands on the Aetos. In my collection of rods are two Fenwicks which were dirt cheap but would put up against any new high tech rod and get laughed vat until they are wondering why im picking fish on evry cast or drift.
  15. Thanks for all the insight and help. i just looked at yellowstone 8wt shootout also and will probably pick up 2 cheaper(medium/fast) rods that the wife daughter and son and can learn to cast efficiently on and then pick up a Scott meridian for the long haul. Most of my fly gear is !5/20 years old and still works as well as most of the new stuff out there. Should probably get them casting lessons so they dont pick up my bad casting habits.
