  1. Or giant hands
  2. Weight wise the sportsman is 3lbs more fully rigged, when you are looking at that size kayak, 3lbs is nothing. I am not a small guy and standing is easy in it and I have taken on 3ft waves for distance never worrying about if the kayak could handle it
  3. While i haven't been in the sportsman 120 myself I would say you wpuld be better off in the sportsman salty, or ideally the bigwater pdl, i have the predator(same basics as bigwater) and it has fealt capable in very rough conditions
  4. Well no luck yet, but it really does amaze me ay the generostiy of other fly fishers... I think i actually have a decent idea how to be sucessful there if I show up on they are actually biting haha... Even got a ton of fly's from one guy
  5. Im not an addict, I just NEED more feathers, hooks and rods
  6. That is a dangerous store for me to walk into...
  7. Bump, any offers will be considered, besides looking cool i Dont have a use for these flys myslef and hate seeing them go to waste
  8. I was just wondering if I could get a little help on where to start fishing a certain popular spot this spring. I am new to fly fishing in the salt and a river keeps being recommend(I doubt i need to name it lol) I enjoy figuring out new areas but have never fished a spot like that, and knowing it is pretty popular i don't want to make a fool of myself or make other fishermens lives more difficult while i'm there, so I would appreciate any little tips, however vague they may be
  9. Im looking to trade these flies,l which i think are salmon flies and the box they are in for fly tying tools, materials, or anything fly related really, or even a bag/pack of some sort.. Open to suggestions If needed I can take more detailed pictures of the flies themselves Thanks for looking
  10. A little bit of both kayak and land. I may give silver spring a shot this evening with worms... Just sit back, relax and see what bites
  11. Ooh those zimmer built look great! And I definitely like trying to go with minimal equipment, although my journey with saltwater flyfishing is still just beggining, so until I learn to really read the conditions and know exactly what I will need I will have to pack a little more. A mix of surface and subsurface fly's, different colors and sizes, extra leaders, tippet, an extra spool so I have a floater and sinking line, maybe a boga grip and my pliers
  12. These are definitely all good suggestions, thanks!
  13. I was just wondering what everyone recomends for a bag or pack for holding ypur fly gear in the slatwater. I have a vest and sling bag i use in freshwater but want to keep a seperate setup for the salt, ideally one that wont sieze up and fall apart if I forget to rinse it off once or twice.
  14. I wish i had the time and money to do a series of test to see the actual data on how all these things effect action, casting distance etc. Especially because I had the same thought about the wire stiffening the blank, but then again, so would the foot on a single guide, and IF that guide weighs a little less, especially when the wraps and epoxy are accounted for, I wonder how the characteristics would change. Then there is the added variable of line contacting the blank on a snake guides vs one with a ring... I have one rod I built with single foot ceramic guides that feel a little heavy for the blank(and im debating replacing) but despite this, the line shoots very well through the guides, better it seems than some rods in have with snake guides... But then again different blanks etc.
  15. I did end up leaving all 11 guides but made a minor adjustment to the spacing
