Re: Fly Rod

Don't say I gave wrong information when I didn't.

My post was being helpful and my information was right.

Re: Fly Rod

Whatever makes...

Nice find. A long tapered leader will make those lines work fine.

Re: What to do with a Montague Clipper?

You could try to sell it here, but as you said. It doesn't have a high value.
