  1. I own 8 fly rods and I only think one of them cost over $ 400 new. I'm not sure where you're looking, but like Brian said, plenty of lower budget options (TFO, Echo, etc.)
  2. This was one thing that bugged me about Cabela's rods and reels. They seemed to roll out new models fairly often, so if you had an issue or wanted another, finding a replacement could be an issue. They discontinued the TLR Salt and some of the reels I had and liked, wish they would've kept some of the more popular stuff around.
  3. Yeah I am hoping to try it out next weekend, just lawn casting. I'll report back once I do. I am wondering if TFO built this rod as a two piece thinking it would be more durable? I got the rod for it's lifting power and durability. Comparing the two rods side by side, the TFR is a good bit thicker and seems stiffer in the butt section.
  4. I'd be fine with doing that too, maybe in the summer we can put something together again.
  5. Looks like you're the winner...I'll PM with details, thank you!
  6. More flies...the top two are Umpqua flies Finsport fly wallet
  7. I haven't caught any really big fish (biggest striper being maybe 15 or 16 pounds), but I will say that pretty much all of the larger fish came at night time or right around sunrise on larger patterns (deceivers and half and half's mostly). You don't necessarily have to use huge flies, but it would help weed out the smaller fish I think.
  8. I just bought one of the TFO T.F.R. rods in an 8 wt. It's listed as medium fast, so I'm interested to see how it compares to my TFO Pro 2 8wt, 4pc (also listed as medium fast). All the other fly rods I own are 4 pc with the exception of the 7' Eagle Claw Featherlight. Honestly, unless I'm flying or trying to fit a bunch of stuff in the car for vacation, I don't completely break down my rods anyway.
  9. Thanks for all the bids so far guys. I'll close this up tomorrow at 9 PM. I'm going to toss in a Finsport Fly Wallet in addition to everything else and a few more flies. I did use the Fly Wallet once so it's not brand new.
  10. I just started kayak fishing there this past year...don't live down there but when I get down there again in the spring/summer I'll try to remember to PM you. I've only taken the kayak out back so far. I don't want to get too specific, but just start exploring - plenty of bridges that have pull-offs that you should be able to launch from. These can be good spots to fish at night. I generally fish from Ocean City all the way to Cape May Point. Another easy spot to launch is Corson's Inlet park - I haven't explored back there too much on the kayak, but you can launch there and access creek mouths, sod banks, etc.
  11. Awesome, glad to hear...thanks!
  12. I'm not sure how to embed an Amazon link here the proper way, but this is the one I have. I'm not selling mine, but if you're looking for a cheaper option, click the Amazon Shopping link at the top of the page and search for it... Z-Ray 11' Fishing SUP Stand Up Paddle Board Package w/Pump, Paddle and Travel Backpack, 6" Thick I don't have any complaints about it...very stable ( I fly fish off of mine and haven't fallen off...yet), although it doesn't cut through choppy water well. I bought an electric pump, which I would recommend...just set the desired PSI, plug it in and let it air up.
  13. Yeah what I meant by that was minimum of $5 increments. Higher amounts are fine as it's all for a good cause. Sorry for the confusion.
  14. The thread with the lines and flies for sale was stuff I personally had for sale and is not related to the charity auction thread. I linked the thread to the auction, is that not showing up on your end?
  15. Several members from the fly tying forum tied up some flies to be auctioned off for charity....these were destined for the Christmas Family Auctions but didn't make it, so we're auctioning them off in the Fly Fishing BST forum. All of the funds will be donated to the C.A.S.T. for Kids foundation. You can find all of the details in the link below
