I agree with aztightlines. I have carried a small repair kit with several tip sections and the glue you heat with a match or lighter. I've used it on one of my rods and a friends rod. Both times...

Flyfisher,

Thank you for the wonderful sentiment. I will go as long as my back, knees and hips allow me to do so. My will is strong and I can only hope I die on a stream or lake, somewhere. ...

lakelady,

Not all water is like Ashurst and Kinnicknick et al. The White Mountains have clear cold water.

Yes lakelady, I know AZ is a desert state or is that a dessert state?

Kinniknick Lake

I may have mentioned this, last year. Last spring, I planned my first week long outing to Kinnicknick, Ashurst, the Mary Lakes and others. I arrived at Long Lake to find chocolate milk water. All...

Flyfisher,

Judging by the clarity of the water around your flippers, it doen't look too bad. So it appears the trade off here is a bit more clear water for a lot of veggies.

Reel Seat

Many years ago, I constructed a fly rod from a Fisher blank. I've used it so much, the finish is almost gone from the wood reel seat. I want to re-finish the seat without removing it from the blank...

Scheduling Fishing Trips (weather)

From my short time in Arizona, it seems the high country, from Flagstaff to the White Mountains, receives more rain and severe thunder storms during the monsoon than the valley. Is this accurate or...

Some of the lakes I've seen with green stuff at or near the surface may be algae and not lake turnover. As I said, I'll take clear water any day.

lakelady,

Thanks for the information. Arizona, Colorado and probably other states, have the same situation in high mountain lakes. If not for stocking, there would be few fish but the difference...
