    I've got a buddy that just moved from charleston and he didn't have te best luck trying to fish there either. Most of the guys that wanted him to go fish with them mainly went out to get drunk. When we go fish, we go to catch fish, not drink

    Yeah I found that out pretty quick. If I want to do serious fishing just normally go alone even when it's just a spinner

    Caught on Rapid Creek here in South Dakota. It's Rainbow spawning season! I wear a 10.5 shoe, so my largest by far on a fly rod. Picked this nice little hobby up last August.

    Hey fellas,

    Been a TW member for a little while, but didn't stumble across this thread until I was looking for ways to transport my fly rods with my Taco. Maybe I'll run into you guys on the water.

    I spend a lot of time on the North Platte in my drift boat...more than I do on any water in Colorado. I've been known to flail the spey rod from time to time as well.

    Here's a king that I stuck in Michigan last fall...

    Depends on what you want out of it. Are you looking for big fish? Or are you more happy with being away from everyone and having a lake to yourself but catching smaller brookies all day? Also, what time of year?

    Does it move fine as is? If so I would just inspect the line and see if you need a new one.

    Jeeze...

    Fly fishermen on here, question for ya...

    I'm looking into getting more into fly fishing because my girlfriend suggested she wants to learn howto fly fish and I would like to learn more about it.

    I want to buy a new, lighter, shorter pole without breaking the bank - sub 100$ . It will primarily be used for smaller trout streams, no larger than about 30 ft wide. All my research brings me to a 4 weight rod. Cabella's seems to have alot of stuff on sale in that price range. I was looking into these -

    http://www.cabelas.com/product/Fishi...3Bcat105573780

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    I already have a reel off of my current fly rod which I plan on reusing on the new one.

    For what you're trying to do, I'm sure that'd be a fine rod for the price. Whenever I look for a new rod I make sure it has a lifetime warrantee. Of it does, I don't really care what brand it is. I fish all st. Croix rods and I love them. Broken many and they always replace them within a week if they have them in stock.

    I've never bought a rod through cabelas so I'm not sure how they cover their rods, but I'd definitely check into it before purchasing.
