    Fly Fishing: Fly Rod Ratings, Fly Line Weights and the Arms Race

    February 18, 2020 7 min read

    At best the term “5 weight’ is used to describe the weight of fly line a given fly rod designer reckons you should be casting on their rod. But with line measurement effectively out the window, things are really starting to go pear shaped here....

    Monofilament vs fluorocarbon.

    I believe it’s Lefty that is credited with saying “There’s more bullshit in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard” (excuse the French) A phrase that is no more apt than when citing the 'Fluoro vs Mono' discussion.

    FiberGlass Fly Rods - From Glass to Back: Coming Full Circle

    July 10, 2019 4 min read

    The first decent glass fly rod I owned was a vintage brown glass Fenwick. A tad short, a bit stiff, and with a plastic triangular tube that didn’t hold its shape and couldn’t keep its cap, it worked, and fairly well. Next I stepped up to an Orvis Golden Eagle, the last glass fly rod I purchased until just a few years ago. But that’s where it ended as I was swept up by the graphite tide.

    How to Balance A Fly Rod

    April 03, 2019 2 min read

    Perhaps that’s too literal an interpretation, but the whole fly rod and reel balance exercise is actually pretty pointless, after-all, when is the fly rod balanced? - standing in the carpark balanced on a finger with no line out?
