Another vote for 6' 2wt. Fiberglass rod. So enjoyable to fish. Overlining with a 3wt line makes all the roll casting weighted flies even easier.

I agree. They'll be fine dropped off that bridge.

Worrying a bit less about what the other guy's doing is what tends to make better people better.

While the Mickey Finn is a good streamer, tying with bucktail and getting decent heads on bucktail streamers takes some time to become proficient at. Instead, I'd suggest starting with some simple...

Age of materials isn't really an issue. So long as it's been kept dry and there's no mildew or rot. If it's just a musty smell then air it out and it'll be fine to use. Good luck. :)

Hard to go wrong with a size 16 deer hair black ant with a white or orange sighter in the middle.

And there's nothing wrong with fishing both a hopper and an ant in tandem. You can even sink the...

Not so sure about the bigger tippet helping much in these cases. A bad knot isn't going to hold much better in thicker line. Kinda reminds me a bit of the phenomenon of guys opting for bigger rifles...

I'd wager it's as much the fault of bad knots and modern super fast action rods as it is tippet size. You can put a heck of a lot of pressure on a fish with 6x on a rod of moderate flex.

North Country Angler

Went to stop in to North Country Angler yesterday to pick up a few things on the way home and the building was empty... Not sure what to make of that, but I guess they either shut down or moved.

I've never fished one, but I think flies like that get kind of a bad rap overall. They do match a hatch. Earthworms fall in to the river and there are aquatic worms that look a lot like them as...

I would have taken some light sandpaper to it, but I doubt it would have come out as good.
