Re: Deckers 08/25/2015

I met up with Alex, a forum member here who does not post much, at Deckers on 8/29. Flows had gone up a little to 450cfs and it was sunny throughout the day. Alex lived in eastern Europe for most...

Re: Aspen Reels

I have no idea. I had the 4wt mend line and backing on the rush, and the 3wt airflo on the Hardy400. I sold the Hardy, put the 3wt on the rush, and then the 4wt on this. I ended up taking off...

Re: Aspen Reels

My reel arrived on Friday, and I was able to fish it today. I got it engraved, duh it was free, and went with the matte black. As others have said, it is a super solid reel. It is also the...

Re: Aspen Reels

They are definitely on the heavier end of the spectrum. Really the only reel that is similar in weight with similar dimensions. The Aspen large arbor weighs a tad more than the mid arbor, which I...

Re: The (Un)Official Sage Mod Thread

Having not yet seen a Mod in person, I sent Sage an email regarding the reel seat/components:
"Is there any difference at all in the reel seat components (besides finish) on the new Mod compared to...

Re: We are all brothers!

I agree, the answers to the questions of "why?" cannot make us dumber, and will have the likely effect of making us smarter.

Re: 10' rods a line size up from listed weight?

I am with Silver here.
While I do not know how this translates to rods in a higher weight or with a more traditional taper. My current rods all cast very well with a line the same as what the rod's...

Deckers 08/25and29/2015

I met up with CAB and Mercedes today in Deckers so that he could buy my reel and we could fish. This was the first time we had met, and he is a very funny nice guy. Mercedes is a kick butt fishing...

Re: Patagonia waders

For those considering some Patagonia waders, the only thing I found not to my liking was the length of the gravel guards. They seemed to only cover the ankle and do not extend to the base of your...

Re: Question about rod and reel cases

I use the divided rod/reel case, and also the rod's sock. I wrap the top three sections in their sock, and stick it in the sleeve that has the longest divider (the bottom one) and then put the butt...

Re: Aspen Reels

I'm assuming you meant to say wouldn't?

I agree with you on the spool mounting due to this. With all o ring retained spool designs it is moving against either the spool or arbor. In this case...

Re: Patagonia waders

I think it is quite a bit more now. They are going back in a month or so for their one year check up, and I am interested to see what they repair. I think there are probably some pin hole leaks...

Re: Handled the Sage Mod yesterday.

That may be the case, which is why I asked for clarification....on a discussion forum.
I read the top quote as the color, hardware, and "in conjunction with" as an additional something. The only...

Jim,
I never looked at your post count, and wouldn't think that to have any bearing on the value of your comments.
If my critique of your criticism came across as a personal attack due to your...

Re: Handled the Sage Mod yesterday.

Correct, you said that Sage screwed the pooch:

I stated that blank color and anodized color doesn't dictate that the performance "screws the pooch".

What about your handling of the rod made you...
