Fly Tying / Gorilla Glue and Popping Bugs
« Last post by Jim Johnson on April 28, 2015, 05:28:30 PM »
I recently was attaching hooks to a few bugs and after wrapping the thread on the hook  I realized I was out of super glue, so I used gorilla glue. This was the first time to use the glue and was not aware how it expanded. Needless to say I had it in the eye of the hook and a lot of it expanding out of the slot.  So a light bulb went off in my old slow brain, Why not use it instead of putty to fill the crack.  The next batch I did I super glued the hooks in and with a bodkin put a tiny amount of Gorilla glue in the crack and it filled the seam and sanded off smooth and insured the hook was glued in place.

RDP is a small fly rod company out of Missouri. The blanks are a medium action full flexing rod. I built this one but Mark is a great guy and to deal with. There is no warranty that I am aware of. For full details you can do a google search for RDP fly rods. And it will take you to his website. Rdpflyrods.com is his website if you don't want to google it.  This is my third build from him and none of them have let me down.

Ultralight Fly Fishing - For weights 000 through 4! / Re: Broken Rod
« Last post by Possumpoint on April 28, 2015, 06:40:35 AM »
The pond I was fishing is interconnected to three others in the same area. Total area of the ponds I would guess to be in the 3-5 acre size. Have never caught anything larger then 14" in three years of trying during the winter months. After seeing several 3' alligators and hearing what I think are larger ones in the reeds I assumed they keep the crowd thinned.

The TFO 2wt I use is only 6'6" long. I'd like a longer rod but it does the job. The LM bass are a blast on that rod. I've also used an 8' Redington Classic Trout 3wt rod with good results. Sure would like to find out how both rods would handle larger fish but I haven't caught them yet. Think I need to find another pond. Couple of years ago at a different area, caught a 3 pound LM on a Shakespeare 4wt. That's a fond memory.

What is an RDP rod and reel, not familiar with those initials. Is that with shipping and insurance? What type of warranty comes with that rod if any?

I have been toying with getting a 2 wt rod myself. I cast a friend of mine's 1 wt and it seemed as if I was overpowering it to cast. I think it was a sage, didn't care for it myself. Right now I have a 3, 4 and 5 weight. And love to catch panfish on them. I rarely use the 5, maybe twice in 7 years. If I targeted bass, might be a different story.

General Discussion / Re: Registering boats in Louisiana purchased out of state.
« Last post by Rex White on April 26, 2015, 02:17:50 PM »
Cliff, I had a similar situation.  I had an Ankona Shadowcast made in Florida, picked it up Thanksgiving weekend year before last.  I started trying to do the right things to get my boat and motor registered in LA.  The boat was new and never titled.  This just happen to be about the time they closed the regional offices around the state.  Anyway, I didn't get my paperwork completed until 5 months later.  It wouldn't have happened then if I had not called my congressman.  Once I got him involved the process went by in about 6 weeks.  When the state would not return a call, I called my congressman, then I would get a call back.  My congressman asked me to write out, in timeline form, the troubles I went through with the state.  I had dates, names and places recorded.  He was working on legislation to rectify this.  Undoubtly that hasn't happened yet.  I missed 3 days of work messing with all this, fishing time and plenty of aggravation.   Something has to be done about.  I would urge anyone that goes through this to call their congress person.
