      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Cabelas Fly Lines

Does anyone have any experience with any of the Cabelas fly lines, like the Prestige or Prestige Plus? I've always been a Cortland line guy in the past, but I see that the Cabelas lines are a little cheaper. Cabelas also advertises that their lines are comparable to some of the higher qualitiy lines on the market. Who makes the Cabelas lines?

I'd love to know! I'm off to Cabelas......at 5! I'd love to know before I pick up another set of the 555's!

I believe they are made by Cortland. I strung my kids up with 5wt Cabela's lines from the bargin bin this past winter ($20). The 5wt works on my daughters 4/5 weight and seems a bit light on my Son's 5wt. I haven't used them enough to form a strong opinion of them yet.

the one plus is they would have Cabela's unconditional return policy so if they don't perform well you could bring it back. Should also check cortland's website for their clearance lines......usually 50% off.

i have used both there lines and i will say the prestige plus is a good line it is stiff and real slick so it shoots real well & floatation is alright. im sure if you ask they will let you cast one as they have it on most of there demo reels, at least the did when I worked for them the prestige is a little softer doesent qiete shoot as well ,also be cause of is softness it also picks up dirt a soils quickly

I have Prestige and Prestige Plus on two reels I used last year. I bought a new reel afew weekago and put some 444 classic on it. Wow! I love the 444.

To me the Cabelas fly lines seem to want to float around in the air making it load the rod oddly.

This is in 5 weight.
