    Posted on February 25, 2016 by Ben F

    Royal Wulff was founded in 1982 by America's most famous fly fishing couple: Joan and Lee Wulff. Soon thereafter, Lee put his engineering skills to work and earned a patent for the first continuously tapered fly line: the Triangle Taper. Whatever he did, it worked.

  • Scientific Anglers Fly Line Reviews and Recommendations: Fly Line Buyer’s Guide

    Posted on February 25, 2016 by Ben F

    Scientific Anglers needs no introduction. While the company was started in 1945, Scientific Anglers has been a constant source of innovation in fly line technology, including the invention of the modern tapered fly line. SA's use of micro-balloons and variable tapered coatings was named the most important sport fishing innovation of the 1960's. As one of the largest fly line manufacturers today, SA produces lines not only under their own label, but under that of Orvis, Royal Wulff, and many others. → Read More

  • Jim Teeny WF Floating Fly Line Review

    Posted on February 23, 2016 by Ben F

    While SA may have stopped making their popular GPX fly line, Jim Teeny has not. When we cast this line, we were surprised at just how similar it felt to Sharkskin GPX. When we compared the tapers, it turned out that it’s virtually identical. So, if you’re interested in how it casts, just scroll up and read our review on GPX. One thing was different, which was the weight – Teeny WF Floating is... → Read More

  • Monic GSP Skyline Trout Fly Line Review

    Posted on February 23, 2016 by Ben F

    Monic is a company that most of you probably haven’t heard of, but they have quite a history of research and development. The company was started in 1990 by a chemical engineer named Bob Goodale, and as you might expect from an engineer, Monic has been a leader in fly line development. They invented the clear floating fly line (and still have a patent for it). Their latest trout line is the GSP Skyline Trout, which is built on their latest low-stretch core. → Read More

  • A Different Way to Fly Fish Florida: Snook fishing on the Myakka River

    Posted on February 22, 2016 by Ben F

    “Oooh, I like the looks of that one!” I said as Ben opened up his fly box for me to inspect. I could tell by the look on his face that he did not share my enthusiasm. It was a white and olive Clouser pattern with a lot of gold flash. Gold is always a good choice in the tannin-stained water. → Read More

  • 10' 5-weight Mini-Shootout: Is 10’ the new 9’?

    Posted on December 20, 2015 by Ben F

    A 10’ 5-weight might just be the most versatile trout rod on the market today. In George Daniel’s excellent book, “Strip-Set”, George says that he now only brings one rod to the river: a 10’ 5wt. That’s a very appealing proposition to me as I own dozens of trout rods and am often tempted to bring 3-5 different rods on every trip. Needless to say, if I could carry one rod that could do it all, that would be a very tempting proposition indeed. Can the 10’ 5wt throw a streamer as well as your 7-weight, nymph as well as an 11’ 3-weight, and throw a dry better than an 8’6” 4-weight? → Read More

  • Sage MOD Fly Rod Review

    Posted on September 9, 2015 by Ben F

    Next up in our 2016 Sage Fly Rod review series is perhaps the rod that’s gotten the most attention: The Sage MOD. The MOD is billed as fly fishing’s version of a 7-Iron – a rod that works great for short-to-middle distances. For critics of the ONE, this might be the rod they have been waiting for – a Sage trout rod that works well in close. Read on to find out if this is the rod for you. → Read More

  • Hardy Zephrus FWS Fly Rod Review: Zephrus vs Zenith

    Posted on September 2, 2015 by Ben F

    We loved the Zenith. We were sad to see it go. They replaced it for 2016 with a new rod – the Hardy Zephrus FWS (yes, the initials are important). It’s the first new rod since Pure Fishing took over the Hardy brand a few years ago. Needless to say, I was skeptical, despite the fact that the old Hardy team is largely still there. But, I shouldn’t have been. After all, Howard Croston is still designing their rods. Here’s how the new Zephrus stacks up. → Read More

  • Sage Pulse Fly Rod Review

    Posted on August 13, 2015 by Ben F

    Sage introduced a plethora of new rods this year. We’ve had a chance to cast most of them at this point, so check back for more reviews, but we decided to start out with the new Sage Pulse Fly Rod. At first glance, the Sage Pulse isn’t that exciting – you might assume (like I did) that the Pulse is just a continuation of the long line of not-very-exciting Sage mid-priced rods: Response, Flight, FLi, etc. But, you would be wrong. Read on to find out why… → Read More

  • Scott Meridian Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 10, 2015 by Ben F

    We had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with the brand new Scott Meridian fly rod starting way back in the days when it was secretly known as “Project S”. Scott has dubbed it as a softer rod with a faster recovery. It does that and then some. → Read More
