yes the TFO mini mag is awesome, especially with the S.A. titan taper line! that thing is a cannon and accurate! as far as what nick is saying is true....my day to day small to medium CREEK rod is a 6wt. BUT as soon as i hit the ponds, lakes, or rivers i grab the 8wts.....1. because of structure like lily pads and milfoil. 2. theres big fish there
the frog came from feathercraft. i order 2 and im about to start tying them. very cool double 4/0 hooks!
btw- my mini mag is the smaller of the 2 sizes...its the 6-8wt. and throws the 8wt. titan taper( 1/2 size heavier) with ease. and even though its short like the sage, its in no way a stiff broom stick.
