 Article Title :: Spring and Pawl Drag Fly Fishing Reels
The first type of drag system is the traditional Spring-and Pawl-drag. Just because this drag type if traditional doesn't mean it's outdated. In fact, spring-and-pawl fly reels are ideal for trout fishing, particularly when using light tippets. When line is pulled out of a quality spring-and-pawl fly reel, it is pulled out very smoothly indeed. There is no "jerkiness" or "unevenness" in the tension that is applied to the line. The line instead leaves the reel at a very smooth rate, without any variations in the amount of tension. By getting rid of the unevenness in tension, the fly reel goes a long way towards protecting the tippet. Try to think about it this way. You have a large fish on  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Choosing a Fly Reel
The definition of a fly reel has changed a great deal in the last couple of decades. Once thought of as simply ” a place to hold your line” the fly reel has evolved into a highly specialized piece of gear. With phrases such as “startup inertia”, “large arbor”, and “heat dissipative disc drag”, the beginner can often be led to believe that they need to be an expert in Newtonian physics to make an informed purchase. I’ll try to simplify things a bit. Fly reel does do more than just hold line. A poor quality fly reel is a wonderful way to lose large fish, especially when fishing on light leaders and tippets. Additionally, selecting the wrong fly reel for a particular fly rod   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Do-It-Yourself Building your own Fly Rod
Every so often somebody handy at creating things wonders “hey can I build a rod myself?” normal response has been, "Get a bunch of books." Here are a few additional observations, some gained from the rich experience that only comes from making mistakes, which can be far more instructive than doing things right the first time. Doing something right and you only learn one way to do the job; do it wrong and you learn two ways AND why the right way is the right way. First, like the man said, get some books. One of the best is L.A. Garcia's Handcrafting a Graphite Fly Rod from Frank Amato Publications. The photos are excellent. Skip Morris has maybe a more comprehensive book, The Custom Gra  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Fly Line Weight
When choosing the weight of the fly line, base your decision on the size of the flies you will be casting. Choosing the right line will make fishing much easier and more enjoyable for you. 0 – 2 weight: For the ultra-light freaks. Designed to handle the smallest flies in the smallest waters and making the most delicate of presentations. A short 1 wt rod and a 1 wt floating line will make that 6-incher feel like a whale. Casting range = 30 feet. 3 – 4 weight: Also for fishing small flies and making delicate presentations. These are very common for stream fishermen and also very effective. Not overkill for small stream trout, able to handle larger trout and ideal for some of the smalle  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Fly Line Care Items
Dirty fly line is a recipe for bad casting. So clean your line to provide for better casts and longer fly line life. Fly lines need to be cleaned for best casting. Additionally, by cleaning your fly lines, you'll greatly extend the life of the line - saving you money as well as time and hassle in changing out the line. And if you fly fishing for larger fish that have a tendency to pull out large amounts of fly line, don't forget about chaning out your fly line backing occasionally, too. Fly Rods : A fly rod is a crucial piece of equipment for fly fishing. A poor quality or wrong type of fly rod is a wonderful way to potentially ruin an otherwise fine day spent fly fishing. Having the rig  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Fly Line Summary
Well, if you've read this far, you should have a good knowledge about fly lines. But, let's sum things up. 1. Fly Line Weight - The weight of a fly line should be the same as the weight of your fly rod and fly reel. Using the wrong weight fly line will unbalance a fly rod, leading to poor casting and long days on the water. 2. Fly Line Taper - The taper of a fly line refers to enhancements made to the fly line to provide better casting. The most popular taper is the weight-forward taper, which is the ideal fly line for beginner. The weight forward taper fly line is also the most versatile line available. 3. Fly Line Density - The density of a fly line refers to whether the line sinks or  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Importance of Fly Lines
Why are fly lines so important? Just like with fly rods and fly reels, fly lines need to match up with the types of fly fishing that you do. This match should be made precisely, too. Thus, if you have a 5 weight fly rod and a 5 weight fly reel, and it extremely important to make sure you have a 5 weight fly line. By not having a properly "balanced" fly rod outfit (which is where the fly rod, fly reel and fly line match in weight), the angler is very likely to have extreme difficulty in casting. For example, using too light of a fly line for a particular fly rod will present severe casting challenges. Remember, in fly fishing, the weight of the fly line - not the fly itself - is what allows  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Let There Be Light, Part 1 - The Camping Lantern
The only thing worse than setting up a tent in the rain is setting up a tent in the rain in the dark. That is a lesson I learned all too well while trying to set up camp in the middle of the night during a cold New England thunderstorm. Having the right camping lantern can be the difference between a camping trip you'll never forget and one you wish you could. A good camping lantern is usually one of two styles - gas or battery - and the right one for you depends on the type of camping you'll be doing, the amount of gear you can afford to take, and what you'll be doing while you're camping. Gas Camping Lanterns Gas-powered lanterns typically provide the brightest  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Airbrush Basics
The airbrush is one of the best tools for painting a variety of craft and hobby items. When equipped with an air compressor as the air source, it becomes like a never-ending spray can, with the added benefits of control of the air pressure and of the paint amount. An airbrush can be used to paint plastic models, rc airplanes, t-shirts, nails, and many other items. How does an airbrush work? Like anything that delivers a fine spray of paint or solvent, it uses Bernoulli’s principle. Air moving at higher velocity has lower pressure. If this air stream happens to be near but above a solvent (e.g. paint), the solvent will be drawn upwards, towards the fast moving air. When it gets to that s  (read full article)
