Didn't have a crazy amount left. We ate fish and/or lobster almost every night down there.
Sounds like a rough trip
What are you thinking of renting --- a house or condo? Generally speaking most of the growth and shopping/touristy attractions are near the bridge or westlake areas. Its so rural, if I were looking with retirement in mind I would look on that side of the lake to be closer to amenities and closer to Roanoke which is the nearest decent sized city.
Our place is close to the mountain and state park which is great for a weekend or even week long vacation...but as development has taken off in other areas its pretty limited in terms of amenities and that would make it tough to be there on a long term basis. On the plus side the view is nice and its tough to get this in the more developed areas of the lake.
caught my first rock bass today on the south for of the shenandoah river.
some utah guide has a new gf and she's adorable
the good smallie i landed today
the one i didn't land broke my 4wt as i was reaching for it and then the line snapped. it was a huge smallmouth :/
Nice fish. I love catching smallmouth
I broke my 5wt a few weeks ago, so I feel your pain.
did you send it in for warranty yet?
this one broke in the middle tip section, i've likely hit it there with a nymph or streamer at some point.
Not yet. Broke the very tip night fishing, and didn't even realize it until the next day. Was quoted 3-4 weeks turnaround by Scott.
I bought some frog togg wet wading socks to wear my wading boots.
Also, anyone have a rec for a 3 weight rod and reel?
like the frogg togg stuff. for the price it's good.
is this a small stream rod or are you trying to tightline nymph any? seems like a lot of companies are making 10-11'6" 3wt rods for tightline/euro nymphing. Orvis, Echo, TFO, Redington, and Fenwick all have good products on lower end. I stay on the lower end of the price scale, so those are what i feel comfortable giving an opinion on. The Echo Base rod I've tried was awesome, and I have their 6wt Ion reel with an extra spool that i like, they may have the best low-end offering out there.
for these weights the reel is not a big deal, invest in the rod and the line. for instance you can get a Redington Surge 3/4wt reel for around $50 and that's literally all you could need for a small stream rod.
Really depends on how much you want to spend, High Cotton. Like HOOSINSC said, rod/line are much more important than reels for this type of setup. What size water do you plan on fishing, and will this setup primarily be used for trout or panfish/small bass.
North GA streams, was definitely looking to spend more on the rod and line than the reel. Small stream and small pond rod. Looking at a few of the Sage models. I have an Orvis 5 wt and would like to broaden my brand horizon.
If you're fishing small streams, look into a Redington Butterstick. My brother has a 7' 3wt, and it's an absolute joy to fish. Great for throwing dries, but you can fish whatever with it. More backbone than you might expect, too.
Bought 2 Sage Accels for Christmas. 6 wt for me and a 3 wt for Dad. Threw all the hottest stuff before buying, and that model suited us both the best, including some much more expensive (Scott, Orvis) options. Quick action, great distance/accuracy potential, and still forgiving enough for someone who only gets to fish a dozen days a year. If anything, his 3 wt is even more impressive than my 6. HTH
not even an atl guy, but this hat is great. seems they were sold through Orvis Atlanta and Sweetwater Brewing.
Quality Hooch campaign is fucking awesome, even if I'm not an Orvis fan.
I was just reading some reviews on that. I might have to try one out, I want a new light weight setup.
I'm wearing the camo version as I type.
My dad brought this home today. I hope to be doing a lot of posting in here.
