Skip with Spinfly caught trout!
             Welcome to ALL ABOUT FISHING!  Please feel free to leave your comments and ideas.  Your are going to find a little bit of everything in this blog about our favorite sport and pastime.  I will cover fly, spincast, and baitcasting with topics such as Dragenstein, the reel drag testing beast, reel drags and how they work, the science of tribology and how it works in  your reel, Spinfly Fishing Lines, the art of fly fishing with a spinning outfit, fishing lines and knot studies, purist fly fishing, casting, and Turn-On Strike Indicators, how to get the most from your spin fishing gear, and many other topics.  There will also be various written articles about all aspects of fishing.  This is a work in progress and I will be adding to it nearly daily.  Please come back again and again as it will be a very large body of material and will take some time to post it all.  I hope you enjoy and benefit from the information.



  1. Really informative post, thanks for sharing. Fishing reels can be very cheap or very expensive. Buying a cheaper fishing reel is not always the best way to go, though. Many cheap models simply do not do their job and can frustrate you while you are trying to relax! A mid-range cost for a fishing reel could be your best bet if you are just starting out as a beginner fisherman or even if you are experienced.best spinning reels
