Re: fishing rod

For a one-stop answer to this and any and all other questions you may have about fishing the salt in your area, read Rich Murphy's Fly Fishing for Striped Bass . It's a pricey purchase, but it's worth it. A local library also may have a copy. Rich literally wrote the book on fishing the salt in the ...

Re: Shoreline Fly Fishing

Does this bankrupt state want your money? You bet:

Good luck. Fishing aside, you can't beat the scenery.

Re: thanks

Thanks but he is looking for any fish as long as it is in the salt :wink: Kevin-- Three words: surfperch, halibut, corbinas. Have him Google each along with "Southern California." That's the principal fare in the surf there, and each can be quite a hoot on a fly rod. We've published a lot...

Re: Jim Zech Confluences

I enjoyed reading the confluences piece on Jim Zech in the latest issue. Rob-- It was even more fun doing it. Afterward, Jim suggested we invent a fictitious California angler and "interview" him . Somebody like "Bob Tetley," perhaps, or "Broddrick Speyed-Green," or &q...

Pick up repellent called Cutter's (made by well known fly fisher/instructor Ralph Cutter) I believe Ralph's family sold the business, which was founded by his grandfather, in about 1975. In posts in other forums, Ralph has said that tests have shown that 37 percent is the optimum amount of DEET if ...

L--

You might also check out Fly Fishing Southern California's Lakes and Streams, by Richard Alden Bean, published by our host's Aguabonita Books (2000). It's pretty comprehensive.

Looking for CA Anglers back from AK

Folks-- I moved this from the Welcome forum. It's more likely to get read and get a response here. It's from a new poster, MR. ED. He sez: I am looking for six (6) guys from Cailf. that floated Lake Creek in Alaska. They did the trip themselves without a guide. My Dad and I met them at the Lodge at ...

Oops--Lamson Drag Thread

Folks--

While deleting an ad link (all sorts of people try to use this site to boost their Google ratings), I managed to delete the whole thread on problems with a Lamson drag. :shock: Apologies. Repost and we'll see what we can do to help.

Yeah, Ken wears a kayaker's top in the surf--and therefore in almost all the pictures of him in the surf. They aren't cheap, but they do the job. I can see Simms wanting in on that market. I wear a breathable "water-resistant"anorak-style thingy that I got on sale at the North Face seconds store in ...

Bigfoot Wading Shoes

Having been uncharacteristically paid by several clients all at once, I just sprang for a new pair of wading shoes and got them wet recently. As you may or may not know (yet), as you age, the tendons and ligaments in your feet relax and stretch, especially if you put on the inevitable weight, and yo...

plh-- The optician who supplies your regular glasses should be able to fix you up. That's where I go. If you decide to spring for glasses from one of the specialized fly-fishing sunglasses companies, be skeptical of special coatings. They can rub off and leave a murky film. That happened to me and i...

Re: Surf Zone Rendezvous

Westcoast Surf Rendezvous Kenny-- Cool idea. For trout anglers, there are similar traditions on New York's Holy Waters--the Beaverkill. There's a rendezvous dinner the night before Opening Day and a breakfast at the Junction Pool the next morning. I hope you've started something equally enduring. -...
