    Fly rod building

    Hey all, Recently purchased some things needed to begin the rod building and also bought a $50 spin building kit (so if i mess up its on a spinning rod, not a fly rod ). I was wondering what websites you all use. At this time I am not necessarily looking to "build a sage" or a TFO. Simply looking for an affordable (one that doesnt cost as much as an already build fly rod) website or company to find some good fast action blanks. Any ideas? I order my supplies off MudHole, but was wondering what other websites are out there. Thanks

    This fish ate a 5” Long articulated black leech...in January. I typically throw larger streamers if there are browns. However, Brookies I go with good ole buggers and such, although I have caught them on bigger flies. only picture I have is from years ago, but it’s a fly I use often...about 3.5-4” Ironically though, for salmon I never use anything bigger than size 4 hooks.

    Was clicking around on Vimeo and came across a video that demonstrated "Bondic." It is basically a tube with UV cure resin with a small UV light attached to the other end....and its not that expensive. I am wondering if anyone has tried it, as (obviously, like all the others...) it is marketed as tack free. They are all "tack free" yet the only one I've ever found to be nearly 100% tack free is Solarez. Any one tried it and can testify?

    Walmart $5 polarized in the fishing section. I agree with most, if I don’t have polarized I can’t fish. I can’t justify spending a ton of money on sunglasses, as I either sit on them or scratch them to death. Genuinely curious on this question....I always viewed polarization as either polarized or not polarized. Is there actually a “better polarized”? Aside from obviously the lense tint/color that may help, the glasses will either cut through glare or not. Or am I misinformed?

    Leader to fly knots

    That image makes it look way more complicated than it is haha. Correct me if im wrong but it’s a non-slip mono loop with passing the tag end back through an extra time? Ive always just used the Non-Slip mono for streamers, hasn’t failed me yet...not a worrysome number of times anyway.

    Fly shop?

    Absolutely about trident. I went in there two years ago and was kind of put off by how messy and unorganized it was. I guess I had the feeling of “if I was lucky enough to own a fly shop it wouldn’t look like this.” I understand they do a lot of online sales.......but......that’s probably because being inside isn’t all that comforting haha.

    Brit Herring are here.

    Was out today in same area I believe. Same thing. Sh*t ton of birds working and brits plastered along the shoreline everywhere. Wind forced me to ditch the boat and I went back out on foot...saw one dink swimming around. ONE. Still not “the migration” that we’re seeing. Maybe a few early arrivals but certainly no big push of migrating fish yet. Saw probably 6 boats and the 4 I talked to said they hadn’t caught jack. Nobody on shore did either as far as I saw. I should have waited another month to quit my job, this is killin me

    Ever fish dropper flies for stripers?

    I personally haven’t although I was actually planning on trying it today. A guy I was talking to said that he does it almost all the time when there is small bait, claims of many doubles. Once a 28” and 18” double. Makes sense to me seein as how often there is a following fish when pulling one in! ill let you know how it goes today...just gotta find fish first
  14. Should be clear now. Didn’t realize my messages were full.
