The site has been up and running since last night. However, some of you are telling me you need "admin access" to view

Try doing this:
1. If you use Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> General tab -> Delete
2. Click checkboxes on "Temporary internet", "Cookies", and "History". Then click "Delete".

If you use Firefox, click History -> Clear Recent History -> Clear Now.  Make sure the first four boxes are clicked on.

If you have the CCCleaner program on your computer, use it.  That's the best purging software there is.

In addition to getting back on your computer, you'll find that purging the temp internet files, cookies, and cache can improve your internet speed, even your PC performance!

I've been playing with a 5-weight Ambush at City Park in New Orleans, where the water's edge is typically overgrown and casting space is tight. I find my original thinking is being confirmed, that this line lets you present a fly in places where you might not be able to cast otherwise. The reason, of course, is the short, heavy head, which makes roll-casting easy. And yes, the speys are remarkable.

I'm going to back off a bit on my earlier statement that the Ambush is not a distance line. Though I haven't pulled out a measuring tape, I'm surprised how far I can throw the Ambush with an overhead cast. The key is to start with only the head outside the rod tip, which is easily determined with the two-color line, and minimize the false casts. Just one back cast, then shoot.

I started to use the ambush line several years ago.  It is ideal for single hand rod spey casting & roll casting.  I do a lot of fishing in urban parks and places with trees; backcasting is not always possible.

Thanks, Tom.

I didn't plan any of it. I just found myself at the boat ramp and started shooting whatever came to mind using an old Olympus camera.

BTW, didn't catch a thing. Weather changed (here comes the excuses) with muggy rainy one minute and then clear n dry the next. You know how bass don't like that.

First one is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.

Other two are also good, just not as good.

One is subtly humorous. The next is a polite rant. The last is an old one I might have posted before.

If you feel the need to throw tomatoes, please use fresh ones.

Since many of the readers and forum members of Louisiana Fly Fishing website ( are also members of this forum, i'll post an update on the site. Yesterday it was hacked. I had protection services but it had expired... my bad. Anywho, the site has been recovered but it takes 1-2 days for the internet to reset IP addresses.

Thanks to everyone for their support.
