Re: New Yellowstone Angler 5wt Shootout
I'm not that big a fan of George Anderson's Shootout as some of you are. Testing the rods in Montana in December, and on the lawn or a gym with no wind proves what?
If you're going to evaluate fly rod, do it in the summer, on the river to do what they were designed to do- catch fish. Don't limit the fly lines to one specific line by just one manufacturer, use all the major line companies and the different series they make. Use DT, WF and even sink tip lines. That T&T that came in last place with another brand of line on it might have gone all the way to #1
All his ratings are are his and a few others opinions.
And FWIW, that's my opinion.
And if this don't beat all-
"If you've enjoyed our 5 weight shootout and are in the market for a new rod,
please support our efforts by purchasing a rod from us!"
Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...
