Re: Cleaning lines

I'm glad to see Bruce agrees with me :D (after all, I did get the info from him ages ago).
Oh and I actually have a bottle of that SA line soap -I'd completely forgotten about it. I'll try it and let you know.
Maybe I should send it to you, Paul? I suspect your lines might approve :-).

Re: Happy Birthday Sexyloops

It really is a bit weird having been on Board from the beginning. It's been a pleasure and still is :-).
Happy Birthday to Sexyloops (aka The MadHouse).

Re: Cleaning lines

I wipe off (soak in if really dirty) luke warm water with soap flakes (this is important, according to Bruce Richards), soak a cloth in the same water and wipe off repeatedly until there's no more dirt on the on the line. Wipe off with a clean rag with just water, then a dry rag. Then apply dressing...

Re: Pike and flysize

And just to add - I can't stand those Wiggle Tails, Dragon Tails etc. I think they're totally unnecessary and they're certainly not cheap either. If you're looking for pike flies that aren't too expensive to tie, check out some of Paul Monoghan's flies on YouTube - they're relatively simple and quit...

Re: Pike and flysize

Hey Thomas! I have a few thought on this subject, and some of them might be slightly self-contradictory, but here goes. 1. If there was ever a species, where the saying "big bait, big fish" holds true, it's for pike. I think my five-six largest pike were all caught on really big flies (+20cm anyway)...

Re: The ephemeral fly reel

I have loved and liked Waterworks/Lamson reels since I got my first one - I think that was in '99 or 2000. I have a few reels that are not WWL as well - one was a gift from Paul some 20 years ago - let's see if he remembers :-). WWL also brings out new models every now and then, and sometimes I get ...

Re: Fly line life

Alage, dirt, mud, sand, condition of rod rings, how much care goes in to it, storage etc. etc. I have lines that are 20 years old and still in very good condition, because I've stored them correctly, tkane good care of them, and obviously they are not the ones I've fished the most. Back when I fishe...

Re: Shucks

Did you read my msg above? *Nymph* shucks. Nymphs don't have wings :-). None the less, I'm 99% sure they are schucks from mayfly nymphs, but I've been unable to find out anything about mayfly species in Malaysia. Comparing them to species I know (looks and size) they could live on/in the lake, but s...
