    Gotta agree w/ the Reel-E-Good winder. I used one once, and it took me about two hours to untangle the bird's nest when the line winder spool came apart.

    Yeah, it's an ancient thread, but I gotta comment on the Moodus knot tool. It's the best bloodknot tool I've ever used (and...after over 50 years of collecting flyfishing gizmos....I got a lot of ....knot gizmos)!!

    Its hook threading setup also works pretty good too on very small sized hooks...which an old geezer like myself very much appreciates. I think enough of this tool that I have 4 of 'em...they're hard to find and I'm always dropping something in the damn lake.

    I don't know.
    All I do pretty much is catch and release.
    But did that stop me from buying a nice looking Benchmade
    fillet knife? Nope.
    Never used it.
    Sure is pretty though.

    The S river I fish was a perfect example of 10% of the fishermen catching 90% of the fish. I got to know a few of the 10% that caught a ton of silvers this year. I watched and seen that the guys catching most of the fish trolled and/or cast spoons and fished all over the river, those that didn't catch fish plunked in one spot whether from the shore or a boat. Watch, learn, catch more fish. Sit, drink beer, complain the fish didn't show up.

    I have Cabelas's waders. I've used them pretty hard for the last two years and the only leak they've gotten is because I fell down a hill and tore a nice hole in them. I'm pretty happy with mine.

    I like my cabelas waders too. Only brand I've found that fist my shape well enough to not have seem stress or too much baggy material.
