  1. look up Capt Ed Hurst. Been fishing with him for the past 15years.Well worth the cost to find the best places to fish and then go out on your own. Beaches are very busy so dawn or evenings (bugs can be an issue ) are your best bet on the beach.
  2. did you got to NB high?
  3. i would advise you to put anything sharp including flies in your checked bag. Normally no problem but one time at jfk they would not let the flies go thu and i had to check my carry on . Almost missed my flight. Better safe then sorry Just my advise.
  4. thanks all for your comments. I will look no furthur.
  6. do yourself a favor and get in touch with David Skok. Great guide. Had a day with him a few summers ago. Best day of shallow water stripper fishing i ever experience.Gurglers on top.
  7. orvis makes a great travel case for 4 piece rods. It can hold 4 rods and as many reels. As far as my other gear all flies, and hooks or anything with a sharp edge goes in my checked bag. Had a bad experiece traveling to Hawaii a few years ago when the tsa would not let me pass with anything sharp in my carry on. Had to hold my breath and chech the carry on before they let me pass. Almost missed my flight as i had to get back on a very crowded TSA line. Nothing was stolen,danaged or lost t but that taught me a valuable lesson. Don't put anything sharp in the carry on. Hope this helps
  8. For all who have the everglades qc and are looking for a spare spool the spool for the 7/8 Signature will definatey work with the Everglades QC. This was confirmed by Tibor today. Mobfly you are correct according to Tibor that the 7/8 Signature to Everglades QC is the only combo that would work.i will be ordering a spool. Thanks all for your input.
  9. Fishawk 11 thanks for your response. I wanted to try for himself and I took a spool from a signature 7-8 and fit it on my everglades qc It seems to fit perfectly.Did you have another reason for your response? Something perhaps i should be aware of.
  10. does anyone know if a spool from a Tibor signature 7-8 will fit the older Everglades Qc? Been looking for a spare spool for my Qc a while now
  11. check our trident fly fishing. They had sage one rods on sale for half off so you would pay the same price for a sage one as a recon. $450 I picked up a 9wt and i am really happy.
  12. Knight Just found out Redington/Sage will not repair my AL10. One went for $42 on ebay last week but i was waiiting to hear from Redington/Sage. I dont want to insult you with a low offer but if you get no offers i'll take it for $50
  13. i know this is an old post but by any chance to you still have the everglades qc spare spool
  14. Looking to get a new intermediate line for 9wt. any recomendations. Northeast mostly stripers, blues, and albies.
  15. try Bears Den in Tauton mass. they have fly rod holders on suction cups you can mount.
