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...

Re: Best dropper knot

The lake has an interesting depth chart. I would seriously consider getting a float tube or something similar to fish such a lake, especially with the treelined shore you describe. Get an extraspool for your reel, mount a (monofilament) shootingline and with 2-3 sinking shootingheads you are setup u...

Re: Best dropper knot

Oooh, this is a bit of a bee's nest, I think, but here's what I do. For traditional dropper fishing, I use a two turn Surgeon's Knot, and leave the tag from the line end long and tie my dropper on that. You can leave the tag end from the tippet long, and use that. That tag points towards the line en...

Re: safety

One can come up with dozens of reasons for not wearing a life vest when afloat, but when examined in a real world scenario, not one makes sense. I haven't always worn PFDs myself, and I've been over all the arguments, but they are so easily punctured. In Denmark, a boat owner is required to have PFD...
