Old School Fly Fishing Info

I was browsing the Google Books archive, and stumbled onto this Popular Mechanics article from 1915 that gives a basic rundown of the equipment that one would need to begin fly fishing.
Popular Mechanics May 1915

There are some good quotes in here, like:
“A good reel that is smoothing-running like a watch will cost around $10…”

“The leader for trout is preferably of single gut…”

“The question may arise, Is a split-bamboo rod necessary?”

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. – Psalm 28:7

Hopefully, I will have some time over the long weekend to posting about my last trip of the season, which happened back in mid-October.
