Fly Fishing and Rolex!

ďA couple of hundred dollars for a fishing pole!?® You'll hear that all the time if you don't keep your mouth shut in certain company. You can talk about the aesthetics and even mention a cane rod will appreciate in value while a new graphite rod will depreciate, but the best thing to do is turn around and say, ®$9,000.00 for a car? I only paid $500.00 for mine.Ē

John Grierach (Trout Bum)

I have enjoyed fly fishing since I finished my first masters! Iím not great, but improving with enthusiasm! While I mainly enjoy trout streams near and around Tennessee, Iíve made a more active attempt to seek out new experiences.

Iíve read about every resource on the subject.

My rod/reel are reddington, but looking to upgrade. Buying a rod is just about the most intimate thing you can do with your clothes on! You never really know till you get in the water.

Every time I bring my Rolex with me.





















Share your trips, experiences, and gear!

Nice story!
I started fly fishing just over a year ago as a hobby following my retirement. I’ve enjoyed it immensely, much more than I enjoy playing golf. Unfortunately, I’m not very good at either one of these activities! However, I’m getting better at fishing.
Curiously, I often lose 2-4 golf balls per round and now I find I am losing flys about every 4-6 hours I’m on the water! (I stream fish in a very tight area).

Awesome!

I have been reading the New North American Trout Fishing, a good read. It goes into great detail about trout ecology and behavior. I find it fascinating.

A good leisure read.

Maybe more about other things rather than fishing, overly complex but genuinely simple.
