Crazy Wader Prices

At least if you spend $ 600 -700 on a good rod, it could last a lifetime. But waders and boots are in a league of their own. Bernd we need a revolution :ninja: ................................John Hi John I agree the price is steep but I don't think the comparison with rods is quite fair. I hate pa...

Minimum Power Casting Drill

So when or what exactly do you lot think "minimum power" is? Hi Tristan There are people here who teach casting professionally and are much better qualified than I am to answer your question, not least the author of your quotes. However and FWIW I'd say you might have already discovered the reason ...

Europe - life in the jungle

As a species, we have a desire to be part of a tribe Why can't we all just get along? We're not wired that way. My take, fwiw, is that yes, we all want to belong but I think there is something else at play here that is also hardwired. That's fear of the "other", the one who is different and therein...

Who could do what Paul is doing?

In my experience the hardest part to let go was the illusion of safety. The truth is, that one never really knows what will happen next anyway. But I think most people need the illusion to have everything under control and to be safe. Seems to me like Paul was able to let go all this and to a high ...

organising fly tying materials

Hi Thomas Read your article. Thanks. It always nice to see what other folks are doing and where their innovation and organisation has taken them. Liked the pegs for yarn handling and the dubbing inside the polycarbonate? sheet sections. My work spaces are always untidy. In fact they are dog's breakf...

Predation on the flats

Hi Bernd I don't disagree with James either because I don't know what the predation rate on bones would be by cudas or sharks or GTs etc in the complete absence of angling. No baseline in other words. But the absence of proof and the absence of causation aren't the same thing. In the particular inst...

Who could do what Paul is doing?

If you guys had lots of money you would probably go fishing in exclusive locations, stay in luxury hotels, fish with the best guides. Catch some really amazing fish. Hi Pete. In my case, no actually, strange as that might sound. For me that would be an example of diminishing returns. When I was on ...

Who could do what Paul is doing?

Like others have said, not a problem, money and relationships permitting. Huntsman spiders are the least of your worries. Harmless critters though a bit scary when they drop onto your face. No I'm not making that up. Only happened once though. ;) Blackwater and I will be on the next plane after he w...

Predation on the flats

However none of these studies have clarified what the predation rate would be if there wasn't the influence of the fisherman. Obviously cudas and sharks eat bonefish whether they've previously been released or not - I believe they preferentially target released fish because it takes less energy to ...
