Re: Took a Change and Grabbed a Sage 99 5wt
Considering it was priced at 650.00, 379.00 delivered is a deal for life.
The 99 is a good second rod. A dedicated nymphing stick, I carry a dry rod as well.....
I prefer the 6 wt here on the T. Tossing 4-5 ABs shot.
The five will work well on smaller water, and 3-4 shot.
Really good for bobber style though, my favorite!
A roll cast/water load is the best approach with this rod, not overhand style.
That will keep the tangles down, and fishing time up.....
I may try and track another 99 down, later this year.
Getting a 6wt Method soon, I'll let you know......
