    Hit the parks this weekend to. There's fish to be had. Some streams are blown out, others are running clear. Caught fish on dries all weekend. Prolly were in the same vicinity on Sat icb, might have walked right past you.

    It's possible. We fished 8 hours saturday, saw one other person. On the water for 7 hours today, saw one other person, with his dog. Coincidentally, his dogs name was half-rack !!

    Got held up by the fire at Little Willow, but got to yell at my firefighter friend when it was all said and done.

    Look for the long haired hippy looking dude wearing a tye dye bandana catching all the fish- that will be my buddy
    I'll be the other shady looking character.

    Oh yah, I remember you. I was jealous of your chestie pocket. It autoleveled, so that when you bent over your beer remained level and didn't spill....


    Raptor- We were close.

    Really? I love mine! Awesome reel in my book. Sucks you've had so many problems with yours. I'd definitely buy them again.

    My first Nautilus was a complete fail this spring. The FWX 7/8 in SE spring steelheading conditions did not perform. The drag was not smooth and it grinded and screached on runs. Read alot of positve reviews, but my personal experience was not good. Fortunately, a local fly shop exchanged it for another reel, no questions asked.

    I've been eye balling those Nautilus reels for a bit now and am glad to hear some feedback about them. For now, I might as well stick with the Abel's and Tibor's, they've never let me down. I do like the looks of those Nautilus reels though.

    I've had great luck with tibor and lamson reels and 95% of my fly fishing experence is saltwater. Tarpon, redfish, bonefish, snook even a few dolphin and a sailfish. Tarpon will test a reel like no other! I am now guilty of using cheap LL bean reels on my trout stuff lol
