Well guys I have been able to fish for about 2 1/2 weeks and land 9 winter steelhead and lost about 25 maybe even more I lost count. But anyways I am 1000% happy with my Sage One 7126-4 Spey rod that I just dont have complaints about and can handle the big winter steelhead just perfect with out an issue. I friend of mine has the #6 Sage One spey and he just loves how mine can handle the big winter guys. I would recommend this rod to anyone wanting a solid rod for winter steelhead. I even managed to hook about a 20-25 pound female salmon that ended up snapping my leader but the rod was just fine with no issues to worry about
I have a picture thread of some of the fish in the Pacific thread section.
