  1. Really cheap fly fishing kits... be aware...

    So, my $30 Shakespear beginner fly fishing kit was a real bargain. Or, so I thought.

    I could never get a decent cast out of it, no matter how much practice I did. Yesterday I finally got to visit Isaac at Sportmans Warehouse. I checked in my rod & reel and he gave it a few false cast. He said the line was no good.

    After switching out the reel with one loaded with good line, the rod gave a nice cast and presentation.

    Now I am looking at $25 more ...

  2. Whats up with the BOB questions?

    For some reason the forum is attracting a lot of attention from "survivalist & preppers", which is fine because a lot of people here meet that description....

  3. Fly fishing forum is getting better...

    Well, after several problems with shooting the line and getting a "pretty" loop, I spent about 40 minutes practicing false casting and shooting today.

    I can see where in the past I was mostly using my wrist, thinking I could do so and get away with it. As soon as I anchored the rod to my forearm and used my forearm for rod movement only, did my form start to show some great improvement.

  5. Too much sugar in yogurt!

    Activia yogurt has more sugar per ounce than a can of Coke. Here are some comparisons. Serving size (oz)/sugar grams/sugar per oz:

    Activia 8oz/37g/4.63g
    Dannon Oikos yogurt 8oz/27g/3.38g
    Coke 12oz/39g/3.25g
    V8 Splash juice 8oz/16g/2.0g

    For low-fat protein, try jerky instead. It might have a lot of salt, but it is low in sugar and fat.
