Re: TH or DHD?

I couldn't agree more, Magnus - and grumpiness is not only allowed or expected - it's called for. And I was recently told that once you're past 40, you're allowed to be grumpy, which means I've missed several years of grumpiness. I've absolutely no idea why "they" had to invent a "trout spey rating"...

Re: TH or DHD?

[flash=][/flash]Magnus, how old are you? I ask because I can’t wait to reach the age where being this grumpy is not only acceptable, but almost expected 😬.

Potato-potaato, although I see your argument as it comes across slight inconsistent, but I'm cool with it :-).

Re: New SW line by RIO

SA also has a lot of their lines marked "one line weight heavier". But what the H..l is the point? I can't (almost) understand MPX et al. that are half a rating heavier, but one - or for that matter two? Whty not just mark the true to standard and let angelrs know the obvious: Up-line by all means i...

Re: What line did Mel Krieger use?

I don't know, and if anyone does, I think it's Christopher Rownes. I'll ask him and send him a link to this thread.

Re: Any fellow Pro photographers/ sound engineers?

I suppose you could say I'm 1/4 pro photographer as I'm in charge of all photography going out of the house at the museum I work for.

Re: Best dropper knot

I don't find float tubes to be particular hard work, as long as you accept their natural limitations - your reach is limited compared to pontoon boats and kayaks, of course, but still you can get around quite well. The best advice is to find a good compromise between effort and speed, when moving ar...
