I really like my Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock, but, that said, I have some Okumas, a Redington, and a couple of ancient Pfluegers that have served me well.

Reading comprehension? The reg you quoted doesn't say "similar material", but "similar device", in reference to spinners, etc. Beadheads and coneheads are not "similar" to spinners, in that they...

What you need is called "Ultra Chenille" or something similar. Go to your nearest fly shop and ask for chenille to tie SJW's.

Nice brookie! I'm out of action this fall with a rotator cuff tear. Hate missing Oct - Dec as that is some of the best fishing of the year on the Swift. Hope to be back in action in the spring.

Nate, have you tried the Gamakatsu hooks? The #30 is about equivalent to a Tiemco #32. Love the wide gape and large eye. A lot of our fall and winter fishing down here is to tiny BWO's and midges...

P.S.

I especially stay away from dry/emerger or nymph combos, as I feel that the submerged flies are likely to cause micro drag on the dry. This could be a big part of your problem. The fish you are...

Simple answer

If you are using a two (or three) fly rig, and find that most of your takes are on one fly, cut the other fly,(flies), off and just use the one that is producing. I seldom use two fly rigs (three is...

Conehead Muddler looks good. Most flyshops carry hooks down to #24 or so. If you want something smaller, you may have to use the internet. For the real small stuff, I like the Gamakatsu C12-BM. They...

Agree 100% If you don't want to get into tying the full spectrum of midges, tie up some Griffith's Gnats from #20 to as small as you can tie. I tie some down to #30, but hackle that small can be...

Eggs

I don't fish eggs much anymore, but when I did, I carried yellow, cream, orangy red, and pink. I tied the yellow and cream ones with an orangy red blood spot. You might also look into the Y2K, and...

Actually, the OP's article doesn't mention trout. Lots of Walleyes and Yellow Perch in VT. They taste much better than trout.

Don't panic

All the latest data we're getting in central MA indicates 1" - 3" of rain over 3 days, with some wind. Looks like even less to the north. The coast, however, could see significant damage due to storm...

I retrospect, it makes sense to learn on a mid flex rod, as it is easier to adjust up or down once you master casting. wet_fly makes a good point as to rod weight selection. Be guided by the flies...

Simple answer: The average glass rod will have a slower action than the average graphite rod. Glass rods tend to be somewhat heavier. Glass is a bit more durable and less prone to breakage than...

Rods

Tip Flex = fast action, fairly stiff, the only real flex is in the tip. An experienced caster will get a lot out of this type of rod, but it may be a bit demanding for a beginner.

Mid Flex =...

The fish you saw were indeed rainbows that were attempting to spawn. The hatchery rainbows are converted to spawn in the fall so that they are on the same schedule as brookies and browns. They are...

The NH FFO rules prior to 1993 were modeled on the Canadian salmon fishing rules.
