    I have only fished for landlocked Atlantic Salmon in Argentina and have the opportunity to fish the Kola Peninsula in Russia this summer and was hoping someone out there can give me some advice on fly patterns that might be worthwhile to take. I prefer fishing dries, but really only have...

    I am a fan of fishing this lake, as it's local and I'm a sucker for some bass fishing. I have a 15' inflatable Saturn boat with a trolling motor, and am able to putt around within proximity to the launch ramp. I'm looking at buying a real boat this month, and it would be the first time I've...

The previous T&T blanks I've done were wet-transfer. I've soaked this one and it doesn't separate; neither will it pull apart from the backing. Is...

    Inherited a couple rods, figured there might be a couple of you who could help with identifying them. Planning on bringing them to the local sports consignment shop unless they mean something to somebody. First up is a 3 piece bamboo with extra tip section. Came in a brown cloth rod sock...

I've only ever cast the heavier RPLs 790-4 or 8100-3 - So i'm curious if anyone has any favorite lines for the lighter RPLs 3-5wt). My first impulse is just to get a RIO Gold WF3F and be good with it...
