You glue the butt onto the blank, and, after that glue cures, you glue a cap or
plate (made of metal, plastic, hard rubber, or a rubber-and-cork composite) onto
the bottom of the fighting butt. The advantages of mounting a fighting butt directly
on the blank are that it can't fall out or get lost, and it will always be there when
you need it.You can buy all sorts of fighting butts or, for less than two dollars,
fabricate your own, as I did on this rod. It's easy to make a cork fighting butt. A 1/4-
inch bolt, ...

you should also learn to tie your own flies. The joy of catching a trout on a fly rod

instructive moment was an evening in June more than a decade ago. I had driven

For me and many fly anglers, catching the fish on the surface is by far the greater
thrill. From the moment I first picked up a fly rod, l was mesmerized by the ritual of
casting out a fly and waiting for a trout to rise and devour the deception. To

trout provides a kick unlike few others in sport. It has everything—the preparation,

toll on these once-productive small streams. Where do I now find above-average
small-stream fly-fishing? What streams still contain a good supply of native fish? If
you start to keep a chart of the small streams you fish and use several criteria to
rate them, you'll ensure yourself a good backlog of productive small streams.
