Do you love big bluegill?
remember the old fashioned fishing line that was maybe linen, but was braided, did not sink did not curl up on top of water?? kind used on cane poles
I guess it does not exist anymore, i sure would like some
i do not fly fish, well, have done a little but not at all up on the language
what is fly backing line? not sure what it is
"You don't fill a fly reel fully with fly line."
hmmmmmmm, now you got me, i have a small fly rod, one that i used in the mountains on small streams, it is full of line, if i used a backing then i would have to cut perfectly good line. i am from missouri man you gonna have to show me
Backing is smaller line diameter, so it doesn't add as much in spool diameter as you might think. On small rods, it is mostly "just in case". I hardly ever even see the skinny line on WF, much less the backing...
i am having a hell of a time with this format? do not want to piss anyone off but to me this thing is so cluttered it is not functional>
colored letters in front of a fish where it is easy to miss
a bluegill with a yellow popper as a back ground? difficult for me to read or follow really hard to follow
when i added the discussion about fishing line there was a "add a discussion link" i used it to add the topic, now adding a discussion is gone??
sorry but i do not like it, would have been here more but it does not work for me not even sure how to read the replies to my original post
wanted to add this
Did a google search for Trent river mouth and Neuse river and a good working photo came up and i have all kinds of questions for that area but this web site makes it so hard to input. wanted to discuss fishing this area and how to do it
the people are great, and i like the site for what it is, but the mechanics drive me nuts, took 20 minutes to get the add discussion to appear
but i know squat about computers or web pages
as for myself-- never have put backing on my fly reels-- never needed it-- yet!! i usually just go after blue gills- or crappie with my fly rod;; but have had several real nice catfish and bass on it;; double fun !!
