  1. Agree with port-a-rod recommendation. Using one on 2014 ram 1500 and it fits and works well. The bottom of the rod tubes seat nicely in the front bottom corner of the bed with the ratcheting ends sitting right above wheel well. In other words, it doesn't even have to be ratcheted that tightly into place to be secure. I've put 12ft surf rods in mine with no real concern.
  2. Thanks, will do. Enjoy the line.
  3. No problem! Packaged and should make it to post office in the next day or two.
  4. Squammer, if you want to give 20lb original fireline a go I have some on an old line spool. I pulled it off the reel in the pic (4000 series tsunami) after having used it maybe ten times last spring. I’ll throw it in the mail to you if you want.
  5. Hi Dan, We met briefly once on the dock behind FS in Point. You gave my kids some jig heads that have been put to good use...thanks! Hoping to try some of your others now. Could I put in for the following bare jig heads ? Smilin' Bill long shank 1/4 oz (5) 1/2 oz (5) 3/8 oz (5) Bullet Head forward balanced long shank 1/2 oz (5) 1 oz (5) 2 oz (3) 2 1/2 oz (3) Foward Balanced Ultra Minnows 1/2 oz (5) 3/4 oz (5) Thanks, Eric
  6. Sounds good, thanks for your time.
  7. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by asking but any chance you ever make it up towards the Belmar area? Or IBSP? I also have family down towards Whiting that I see regularly if that could work. Thanks
  8. I’ll take the remaining WF8I. Thanks
  9. All weather floor mats from the dealership, no longer have the vehicle. Should fit any 2010-2014 outback. Pick up only, Belmar NJ. $40 (cash or PayPal) Thanks
  10. No problem. Should go out in a day or two.
  11. Lee, when Hodgeman replaced a leaky pair of waders for me they sent an extra belt. If you think it will do what you need PM me your details and I’ll throw it in the mail.
  12. I'll do the Orvis line please...thanks.
  13. I'm still new to this as well (a couple of years in) and wrap the same way everyone is suggesting. The only down-side I can think of, and have experienced, is that the material being wrapped has a tendency to be pushed away from you by the thread if not pinched well and ends up wrapped on the far side of the hook. Wrapping the other way, towards you, would make it very apparent when this happens. I'd take some of my earliest flies out of the vice, view the far side of them for the first time and realize that it looked nothing like the side I had been looking at all along. But, now that I am aware of it I just make a habit of preventing it and checking both sides as I tie. Besides initiallypinching the material I've also found that sometimes a couple of loose wraps first, then a good pinch before pulling the thread can help as well. It also took me some time to realize that not all hair on a bucktail is equal, From top to bottom each section of the tail has different properties (thickness, hollowness) and will respond differently to your wraps. From one newbie to another, I hope this helps.
  14. Selling older Yakima bars (46”), three bike racks, two fairings (32” and 44”) and towers. Towers I had on an outback at one point. Should grab most factory rails. Looking to make space, hoping it all goes together to someone. $50 cash or PayPal for it all picked up in Belmar, NJ or I’ll bring to you within about a half hour drive. Thanks.
  15. Top right Bigfish surfster please. Thanks
