    Equipment Recommendation - Beginner

    Lots of good combos out there. Why not go to Eldridge Bros in the spring and try out a multitude of rods. Lots off good people there that can help a lot.

    meaning of fly fishing?

    The challenge of catching a fish with a fly you tied and putting that fly just where you want it and at times the quiet solitude of being there alone.

    nymphs with or without

    Both. What I use depends on where I am fishing.

    Thanks. Is the borax better than coarse salt? I've used salt on deer and have had really good results.

    Sad to say but same place 90% of the time because it is close to home and I can get back to do other things. Keep saying I'm going to explore but haven't made it yet. THIS IS THE YEAR TO EXPLORE.

    vise advice?

    I bought a Renzetti Traveler a couple of years ago and really like it. Haven't tried many others though. There's a local vise shown on this site that looks nice too,

    I have been thinking about shutting down the site

    It is a great site. Like you said Kevin many of us don't post because we don't know much and don't want to look foolish (stupid). We started fishing late in life and still have a lot going on so it's hard to invest the time we should. Soooo I guess I'l start the question thing with "when you do the entomology blog could you reference what flies and size would represent that bug for the time of year"? Right now I just keep trying anything I think the fish might like. I'll stop here and ask that you guys be gentle with me here.
