Fly line life

I'm curious about how long people get from a modern freshwater line - from new until worn out (cracked etc.)

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

Back to the original query - I'd suggest contacting Snowbee to let them know that line is not slick.

Re: Good budget fly rods

I think you need to try each individual model and not simply a manufacturer or range even. For example many years ago the Redstart 9056 was an absolutely fantastic rod. It retailed for 100USD. However some of the other Redstart rods were dogs. I’ve been considering sourcing some budget rods for fri...

Re: Inflatable Life Jackets

Make I'd suggest would be Parmaris http://www.oceansafety.com/

There is an argument against wading with auto jackets. Salmon anglers found they were discharging when the wearer waded deep or got splashed a few times.

For your purposes auto jackets probably make more sense.

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Can we have a field for colour change at colour change measured (and use the proper spelling of colour to piss off pretty much everyone.)

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Hi Paul

You may be right about the bend possible with that rod, I'm not checking.

Do you have the line database going? I've an odd one here, the line is a #6 and weighs as a #6, maybe a fraction below the target weight. But head is 1.5m shorter than the maker says it should be.

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Paul that was a 2 pce 8ft 3-weight Greys the line was a #10. I still have that rod, old style rod made using a lower modulus graphite, probably an intermediate mod., slowish action, by modern standards slow action and low stiffness. It must be 25 years old? it seems like there was something self-lim...
