Default My new outfit

My new 4 wt outfit is essentially complete (though not entirely in my possession yet), I was working my bargain mojo:

Rod: G Loomis GL2 7' 6" 4wt

Reel: Orvis BBS II (this may go back as I'm thinking I might want something I can run on both a 4wt and a 6wt if I get one in the future, but I had a $25 off coupon)

Line: SA Supra WF4F ($25 at Amazon) and SA Dacron #20 backing

Waders: Allen Co. Blue River Breathable Waders (I've never heard of them, and couldn't find much info on them, and there's a good chance I'll have squeeze my giant feet into them, but Amazon had them for $33 marked down from $180... seriously $33 with free supersaver shipping)

Almost there...

Sounds like you're getting it together without breaking the bank. Welcome to the forum, I don't remember saying that before so I'll say it now

I opened this post with some trepidation as I did NOT want to see you in a kilt! Setup sounds great, my all-around small stream rig is a 7.5 4WT with a Supra on it. Great price on the waders too! milt.

Where did you find the Blue River Breathable's for only $33??? The best Amazon price that I can find for them is $116! $33 is a steal!!!

No kidding. Heck, even if you only wore those waders a handful of times, you've gotten your moneys worth! Beats the $3-400+ that some of us spend on waders.

We may have to appoint you as the forum's head bargain hunter! I'm impressed. Welcome to the forum.

I agree. We should have a stickied "daily bargain thread" where people could alert everyone to great deals.
