    Way to go! I have never looked back since I did. What weight?
     

  3. Got the 8ft 6" rod . 6wt. A buddy said to go that route.Think there will more outfits added as time goes on.Got a bithday soon.Wife asked what I wanted. You know the answer to that.
     
  4. Welcome back to the madness! If you ever plan on fishing Beaver Creek let me know. I have heard good things about it but never fished it. Like they say... you can take the fisherman out of the fly, but you cant take the fly out of the fisherman.. or is it the other way around...:confused: :confused: :p
     
  5. I have the Three Forks in 3, 5, and 8 wt and they have done well for me. Curious if yours is from the new batch as they were supposed to make them a little faster. Left the 5 and 3 wts the old moderate but the rest were changed to mod-fast. Would probably have helped my 8 wt but I love roll casting the 5 wt and the slower action helps.

    My 3 wt gets most of the action and it is 10+ years old. Finally put new line on it just because. Many happy rises!
     
  6. welcome back to the 'enlightened side' :p

    Ahh Beaver Creek! NICE! as you can catch almost all different species of bass in it.
     
  8. Thanks guys. Looking forward to getting out. But in the middle of moving,so may be a while.But the new place has a pond with bass and gills.So will give the outfit a lot of use.
    Liquid-My buddy fishes Beaver Creek a lot.Does real good there.Small mouth and saugereye on a fly rod.He said we will be hitting it when I have the time

  10. Chuck, if you guys head out to Beaver let me know. Would love to fish with someone... most of the time I go alone (wife not huge into traveling to places to fish, ohh and shes pregnant :) )Good luck with the move!!!
     
  11. It is on Rt 7,down by Rogers Ohio. Over close to the Pa line.Beaver Creek State Park
     
  12. O.K. will do.Don't know how soon the computer will be set up. Heard the inter net service stinks in that area.
     
  13. Chuck,
    Welcome to the madness! There is NOTHING like fly fishing (IMHO!) & we are blessed with some fine ponds in this part of the state. Love those gills!
    Hint...Make your next request a 3 weight & you'll be good to go for most anything up to & including steelhead, which I go after with my 6 weight.

  14. Hey guys!!
    Took the fly rod to a local lake and had a ball with the gills.Game on again for good.guess the musky rods will collect dust for the rest of the year.
