I’m not sure how new you are to fly fishing, but one of the best books I’ve ever seen on the topic is The Curtis Creek Manifesto by Sheridan Anderson.  It’s in a humorous comic book type format, and it is packed with information that is non elitist and straight forward.  I bought my copy at least 40 years ago.

I've used the behind the knees method before but what about those rubber grippers you use for opening jars, etc.?  Better than tape!

So Mr. Sage, you have awakened all my desires to be at a high mountain lake casting over wild cutthroat trout. Not a bad thing. And how 'bout a new fly rod and reel? I still love my set up I've had for close to 30 years. Old school, just like me. Thanks also for letting me know how many times I've looked like an idiot in a fly shop. :)

 

I enjoyed the videos and the opportunity to escape for awhile. Thanks for the fun!

Ski that's a nice old Ross.My Ross is only about 15 years old but I really like their reels.

Your idea sounds great. Maybe someday.

Stay safe. Watch out for the "toothbrush"wielding woman.

Thanks Frank. That's the original, first model Ross.  I bought it around 35 years ago at the fly shop in San Francisco on Grant Street (I believe) near Chinatown. Years ago I was able to find an extra spool for it. It works flawlessly, albeit a bit beat up from all these happy years of use. :)
