  1. Here’s more info let me know
  2. Spooled but hardly used in orig box $35 shipped $30 if Montauk pickup
  3. I’ll take the 9wt Outbound Short in touch 6s if avail
  4. This year really got into small stream stealth fishing I will be doing much more later in the year and next ill also be getting a proper rod i have an 8.6 5 wt but need to scale down a bit. I catch too many branches and branch trout don’t fight much in thinking it will be a 4 wt bet 7 and 8 ft what are are your favorite rods for this? i like the orvis superfine, Clearwater, Thomas and Thomas makes a nice rod in the 500 range I also see folks using glass this is all about crawling upstreams on knees if necessary and delivering a near perfect cast knowing you might only get one shot. What a blast what say you?
  5. Somehow after all these years never fished Martha’s before. So it looks like I’ll be up there late June / early July. Suggestions on places to fish and places to grab a brew?
  6. Hi Mark! Hope all is well. Agree with all of what you say. We should have a thread of all the good stuff that’s been discontinued
  7. Yes I understand my only feeling is that if you are suspected of being a terrorist, seriously, some deep self reflection about life choices might be in order.
  8. The Patriot act identified how the modern financial system keeps terrorists and criminals in business. If you open a bank account making believe you are a humanitarian relief fund, but you are actually collecting and wiring money to train terrorists Or plot attacks, US agents have the legal tools to identify you, arrest your sorry ass, shut you down, and go after all the other nut jobs in your ring.
  9. FWIW I’ve had some problems with certain plastics creating nasty scuff marks on the boat not sure how or why but a heck of a time removing it the plastic used in the Orvis baskets leaves no marks.
  10. I remember coming out of the building in all too vivid detail There was nothing like what you describe. this conspiracy theory stuff is a social phenomenon I do remember immediate references to Nostradamus
  11. 2 wood Gibbs 3 Oz bottles 2 wood sm Gibbs darters the bottles may have been in the bag, but I doubt ever casted i doubt the darters were ever used $38 PayPal includes shipping $32 Montauk pickup
  12. I saw pretty much the whole thing first hand, in the building and on the street you saw some crazy doctored version on the Internet I never thought the day would come when some crazies would try to challenge what went on that day. Then again I remember the thing about folding a $20 bill a few times a certain way and supposedly you can see the twin towers on fire.
  13. Ha ha ive already thought about knee pads for the waders so I can crawl more and keep a low profile.
  14. Ok sold n sent thx
  15. New in box never used $38 includes shipping PayPal or can do a slightly better deal for pickup in Montauk
  16. All great points I guess one of the true isms of smaller stream fishing is the overhanging growth. all the shade keeps the water colder and the fish happier At times some places are really unfishable with even a 5 foot rod not sure how crazy I want to get here
  17. I don’t have a price point but I really liked the Orvis Superfine and the TNT. Super light and well built but the Orvis Clearwater was good too 250
  18. Ok I’ll pm you
  19. Your outfits sound good My leader is 40-30-20 and then 16 flouro for Albies Maybe I’ll experiment a bit lighter this year but pretty happy with that setup
  20. The resource is stressed and all the signs are there. no need to debate it, I’ve played the game for too long
  21. Like them all but really really like the red with green in last one
  22. I tested that rod out versus the other higher end rods I really like it i bought the reel a few weeks ago but you can’t have too many click n p reels like that Targeting native brookies doesn't get much better
  23. That Capt Jason Dapra’s Boat you should pop him a note with the question. He seemed pretty happy with it
  24. If you don’t sell this outfit I’ll probably be looking you up this winter ill be looking for something like this for the spring trout fishing in NY
