About Me:

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

What I do for a living:


  1. Looking for a budget chest length wader to use mostly during the chilly months. I know tidewe got some budget ones and so do froggtoggs. Wondering if I should go with neoprene or just rubber ones. Found some decent used ones for under $100 too. Any recommendations would be appreciated
  2. Been on SOL for a couple yrs now but haven't spent much time non the fly or fly BST forums.. I have a friend who wants to fly fish in northern Idaho in August (mix of targeting chinook/kokanee/trout I think) so I'm gonna do my best to acquire my first outfit and as much practice as possible under my belt in the interim. I've yet to do an extensive weekend scouring of the SOL fly forums (which a plan to do), but wanted to ask what are some of the top fly boards/communities to learn and interact like here. Especially more freshwater focused. I could easily blow this out into a bulleted list of questions about gear/species/books/flies/techniques/etc/etc/etc but I'll refrain for now. Just asking for dedicated fly forum recommendations for research. Thanks in advance!
  3. Fenwick 333 9' 5oz Jim Green Autograph Can anyone tell me more about this rod? I called up Fenwick directly but they have no record of it. I'm guessing its a 1955-1962 model because the logo does not have the Fenwick eagle.
  4. I purchased a Van Staal VF8 HD Fly Reel new from the Bears Den this spring but I'm not going to get a chance to use it this year so I have decided to sell it. Reel has only been out of the box to inspect and for photos. Includes backing, box, bag, and paperwork. I'm located on Cape Cod and the price is $265 and I accept paypal or cash.
  5. For Sale: Lamson Velocity V4 reel and spool, with backing on both. Purchased years ago on this site. Haven't used since purchasing here. $175 shipped via priority mail.
  6. just wondering when the stripers get to long island. Its been too long!
  7. Looking for a rotary vise for tying teasers and bucktails,larger saltwater hooks. What do you guys use..trying to stay under $100 thanks!!
  8. Alright, winter is just about upon us, so it's time to start thinking about kayak mods for the spring. I want to hear the best mods for fly fishing in a kayak, even pictures if you want! For me, I use a Next Lagoon 10 ft. I only use a milk crate in the back, but want to work on my yak to become a fly machine for the spring. Let me know! Christian
  9. Good evening all, Thought I'd put this in the Main Forum to get more eyes on it..... For those who tie, what are some go to saltwater hook models for homemade epoxy sandeel patterns and clousers? I've been using Mustad O'shaughnessy 3407-BN in size 2/0 and 3/0 but I feel like there are better options out there that I don't know about. Also I haven't been able to find more than 8-packs of these and would like to order 25 to 50 at a time. Open to ideas and suggestions. Look forward to hearing some responses and thank you in advance!
  10. 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!
  11. A "Jakes Snake" striper fly in classic white. (But tied by Dana at The Tackle Shop in Portland.)
  12. Selling a used silver Nautilus CCF-X2 6/8 in great condition with 8wt line and pouch. This is a great all around reel for the fresh or salt as its very light. I'm located on Cape Cod and I'm only interested in a local sale as I am not dealing with Paypal anymore. Price is $350.
  13. Up for sale is my Islander LX 4.0 reel. Asking $375 shipped or $365 local pickup. with Rio WF10 F/I fly line and backing. No longer using this size reel as I have moved back up north. Local pickup in Baltimore, Maryland or I can ship USPS priority. I have bought and sold lots of items on here and never had an issue. This is an awesome reel with a great drag sound if you like to hear the real scream.
  14. Hello people, Long time reader, first time poster. I haven’t seen any dedicated info or opinions on the airflo sniper line. I know there are a lot of anglers who use and love the rio obs series of lines. The airflo sniper is almost exactly the same dimensions but not too much info on the sniper. I’m looking to invest in a series of lines so that there will be consistency and no guess work on performance with using different brands. Is that a good idea? What are your applications? Being there are soo many options out there i feel like I'm guessing instead of buying with confidence. I was also looking into rio obs series. I’m going to be using these lines on my 9’ 8wt and echo beach boost 8wt 12’ th surf rod. I’d be using these on stillwater and the surf for any species. Thanks for the help! Cheers!
  15. Trying this again with price dropped. Lightly used Sage Response 8'6" 4 weight 4 piece rod with tube. $200 picked up western Essex County or Secaucus (where I work). Add $10 if shipping to continental US. The model shows 476-4, 7'6" but per the picture with tape measure it's 8'6". Great rod. Cash, postal/bank check, or PayPal. Thanks, MaCe1

    NC Surf

    Hi Folks, New joiner here. Well versed in all things trout and now find myself in (east) NC. Can anyone point me in the direction of other local surf flyfishers, locations etc as I hope to try some surf fishing as the weather breaks. Thanks in advance for your input. Jim
  17. Hey, all i'm heading down to Ponte Vedra for the week of Thanksgiving. Would love to get into to fish on the fly while there. Any suggestions for places and presentations would be really appreciated. If anyone is looking for a partner during the week, I'd be up for that as well. (Note: I am pretty inexperienced in coastal fly fishing, but have a nice 8 wt rigged up for salt water, and fish about 20 days a year in the N. Georgia mountains.)
  18. I'm looking for feedback on shorter fly rods in 5-8 weights. I will fish them from a kayak for stripers, redfish and smallmouth/largemouth bass. Right now I have a trio of 9 ft rods, my favorite being a Loomis GLX 6 wt. However, when I set it down in the kayak, the tip sticks past the bow by 6", so it doesn't fit inside a rod tip protector. I would like to find a rod around 8 ft that casts with a nice quick action. I've been reading about Loomis Shorestalker and ShortStix. Also have read some about Sage Bass, Orvis Recon and a few others. I would like to hear about the casting performance of shorter rods from a kayak, tossing streamers, crabs/shrimp etc both in freshwater and inshore. Right now I'm leaning towards the ShoreStalker and Recon because I assume they both have a fairly fast action. I don't have a fly shop anywhere nearby where I could test drive these.

    New setup

    Just finished this century fly rod.. century 9’ 9/10 rod teton reel 10wt. line. Orvis has anyone used the reel, it’s older, but I’m using for the first time. might be looking at a lighter 7/8
  20. I have for sale an excellent condition Tfo Pandion. It casts like a dream. It includes a Lamson Guru Reel. This is a 700.00 set up. Asking 450.00 obo
  21. Hey all, I'm looking for some recommendation's/ advice on a fly combo to learn on. I will be targeting Striped Bass and Blues on the east end of Long Island. I've done a bit a research and came across a couple combos like the TFO Left Kreh and the Orvis Encounter/ Clearwater but I'm unsure if these are suitable for saltwater use in rocky terrain. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  22. Hey everyone, Thought I would start a new thread exclusivly focused on action on the south side of cape cod, pretty much from the RR bridge to naucet beach. Just trying to help out those fishing the south side find some productive water Anyway, Fished a south cape beach last night which is in barnstable last night, very crowded. my buddy got a schoolie, saw a dude pick up a blue and I caught a massvie alewive on the fly (ate a 1/0 baitfish imitation)
  23. Are there any $100-$130 8 or 9 weight combos for the salt?
  24. Greetings, I have recently acquired a Harnell Fly Rod, Cigar shaped Cork handle, Black hollow Fiberglass, 8ft 6inches, 7 guides, 2 piece and original green bag. No Model or Serial #. It only has the Harnell logo from Santa Monica, California. After reading blogs, posts all over, I have only seen one other person post a photo of this vintage fly rod. I have read the stories about the Harnell/Harrington Co, Jean Harrington, in business/not in business. The move to Venice (which I thought was California at first) Florida and so on.. I am certain this old Harnell Rod is of serious value! Would anyone be willing to help me find more info and perhaps a buyer!? I also have a Heddon Pal, #30-7 1/2 D or E, 10 guides, not sure the year. See Photos attached..
