  1. Hi all, First post but have been tracking various topics from the sidelines for a long time now. Wanted to get some recommendations for a budget 9wt fly reel as a back up. I am mostly targeting bass, blues, and false albacore in New England from the shore and boat. I am looking for a reliable/durable back up reel without breaking the bank. A few models I am choosing between is the Waterworks-Lamson Liquid, Waterworks-Lamson Remix, Sage Spectrum C, and Colton Fly CRG II. Is there a clear winner between these few or would you recommend an alternative? Thanks!
  2. WTS Brand New TFO Power II 7-9 weight fly reel. Reel comes with neoprene cover but does not have a box. Won in a raffle and have no use for it. Reel is brand new and has never been spooled. MSRP is $375 and I am asking $300 shipped OBO. Thanks!

  4. Hello all I am getting into saltwater fishing. I am mostly casting into the sound at the NC Outer Banks. So far I have caught a few blues, a needle fish, and a grey trout (weakfish). Hoping to target mostly blues, reds, and striper. Maybe some false albacore as the outerbanks are supposed to be good for them. I have a 3wt, 6wt, and an 8wt. I am hoping to manage heavier flies into stronger wind and would like a heavier rod to do so. I would prefer not to go up only 1 line size, but I feel like the 10wt could be too much rod. I do not expect to be in a boat so everything is in knee high water. Alternatively I could go with a 2 hand switch rod. Maybe a switch 7 or 8 may buy me line speed and help with heavier flies. Any advise? Thanks!
  5. I'm looking to frame some flies that I tied and haven't found a good starting point. I'm hoping to start with a premade frame and make it work from there. How have you guys done it?
  6. so I'm down here in North Miami for the next couple of days, closest beach is Haulover Inlet. I've got my fly rods rigged and ready to go, so I was hoping somebody could give me some actionable Intel on where to fish. what species should I be targeting? I was supposed to fly home to Jersey today but my flight got canceled due to the inclement weather, so I'm very excited to capitalize on these extra few days. Any and all information is greatly appreciated. thanks!
  7. This sounds stupid. I am looking for some foam bobbers to test something that I am rigging. Some of these fly foam bobbers are small and you can thread a line through it. Not looking for a lot but they are stupid expensive for a dozen on the 2 popular sites. Anyone have some that I can buy to mess around with? Shipping can't be too much if it's just a few bucks for a handful.
  8. Hey, I have never have put in the work to become good at fly fishing living in the NE. But I recently moved to Charleston and it seems like a great method for getting reds/trout in the higher grass and flats. Any tips would be appreciated. Thank you!!
  9. Hey Everyone! I have a lightly used Orvis helios 2 and hydros large arbor V combo available. It is in excellent condition still as it has mostly sat in the case since I bought it. Comes with original rod tube, reel case, reel box with warranty info. The only piece that is not original is the rod bag itself. I do not remember what the exact brand of fly line and backing is, it seems to still be in good condition. I would still recommend replacing the line as it is old. Asking $900 shipped in the lower 48 Thanks!
  10. Let's see some fly boxes Location - Southern Maine/North Shore MA Target - Striper *This is a big box I keep in the car to refill smaller the smaller fly box I take with me on outings.
  11. I have a brand new 12wt fly rod for sale. It is a G. Loomis CrossCurrent Pro 1. 8’ 10” 1 piece rod. Due to the size it would need to be picked up in Philly, unless we can agree on a place to meet up. Asking $425. Would consider trades for Van Staal or Zeebaas reels.
  12. Does anyone fish the Hudson more specifically from Williamsburg but any info is helpful. Thanks
  13. So I was just about to tie a weighted deceiver, when tying a clouser the hook rides point up. Will a lead wrapped hook do the same or will it sink point down? Thanks for any input.
  14. Have a pair of brand new in box Simms G4 pro Waders size L (9-11 foot) in box with tags attached I ordered and didn't use. Paid close to 750.00, will sell for 450.00 cash . Picked up in SF Bay Area only . Not looking to ship.
  15. Heading to Block early June this year with the fellas. Like usual we will be surfcasting the beaches by night. This time around we'll have access to a shallow draft skiff and a push pole during the day. Has anyone tried their hand at fly fishing / sight fishing in Great Salt Pond? If you've got any stories or tips I'd love to hear 'em. God I love Block Island.
  16. I have never thought to throw on a teaser, but figure it can hurt. So I am wondering, what you use for a teaser? Does it depend on the trailer fly? How big should it be? How far up the leader should you tie it on? What situations would you throw on a teaser? Thanks for any info
  17. Hi, I was wondering what saltwater flies are best for mangrove snapper and grouper. I have been tying for awhile but I have yet to catch anything other than blue fish. Thanks

  19. I am taking a trip to Jupiter Florida in January. I was wondering what flies/colors/hook size people like to get on Jacks, Blues, and maybe Spanish (or other fish that would be in the area in January). The water I plan fly fishing is the surf from the inlet to the pier. Thanks!
  20. Looking for a 7wt Switch Rod preferably over 11ft.
  21. For sale is a like-new Orvis ZG Helios, comes with factory carbon fiber carrying tube. 9 feet long, 10 weight. Will provide detailed pictures if there is interest. Located in south Jersey, willing to split shipping, I get deep discounts on shipping through work. Asking $350 but will entertain offers.
  22. Headed to Cape Cod this coming weekend for a week. I want to fish for stripers/really anything else that will eat a fly. Staying really close to the mouth of Great Pond and planning on fishing incoming/outgoing tides there. That's the extent of my plans. I have some lefties and clousers, but should I grab some other flies? Is Great Pond a solid spot or should I travel over to Eel pond? Any suggestions on time of day vs tides, etc.? Really, break it down for my Barney style, because as much as I can net myself a boatload of trout on the Farmington in CT, I been skunked for 40+ hours of fishing for stripers in the salt. Thanks in advance all, -ChuckD
  23. Hi Everyone, I don't usually post but I moved to the North Shore from Long Island a couple years ago and while I've done my fair share of fly fishing and surfcasting, I only recently started throwing a fly rod in the surf. I primarily fish between Marblehead and Nahant and have had some success on the fly rod but was wondering if anyone else in the area does the same. The fishing up here is pretty different from what I used to do on LI and I'd really like to find some people to exchange info with because I can't tell if I'm slowly figuring things out or just blowing it. Thanks
  24. If anybody is looking to wet a line this Sunday, I'm planning on heading to CCB in Brewster or Dennis to wet wade the flats for the Sesuit low tide around 11:45am. Mid day fishing so not ideal but I'm a weekend warrior so I'll take what I can get. Planning on walking out from Crows Pasture, but open to anything in the area - Paines, Saints.
  25. Anyone have a copy of Ken Abrames’ A Perfect Fish: Illusions in Fly Tying in good condition they’d be willing to sell?
