Default Re: The Party Is Over...............

I have admired the Tundra for years Casey. I wanted an old one but they are hard to find in good shape and when you do it'll cost a lot. I found the one here as a leftover 2012 last October and got it. They are the powder crawling machine for sure. The wide track will walk on anything, pretty amazing.

Yamaha is still selling a Bravo but they are about 5K and I got the new LT for 7, so I took the suspension over the old style Yamaha. They are the same as always, the Bravo, not much in the way of bump control. Honestly for a 77 mile one way ride I needed something bigger than a 250 cc machine, the Tundra has a 550 fan motor with reverse.

Hey Willian,

You posted while I was writing to Casey

I just ordered tying supplies for Tubes on Friday and they will be here by Tuesday maybe. They are coming out of the Caddis Fly Shop in Oregon I believe............ Anyway, yes, tying and I'm going to give my Hardy Salmon Rod a face lift, the 1981 rod. I may put larger guides on it and re-varnish the whole thing after. Also looking to do the same to my old H&I 7'6" five weight bamboo. It needs some love but I've always been reluctant because it's a one tip rod. I figure that since I never broke it in 20 years I will fix it up and be even more careful
