Re: 8wt Sinking Line questions

I bought the Orvis 3D Depth Charge line. It's a little more expensive. I chose it because the core is braided and a low stretch, and because of the texturing on it. Sinking lines are a pain to cast....

2 lines for Hardy Zenith 9' 6wt

I need two fly lines. One, a floating line. The other, a sink tip/head streamer line. I would like to have any suggestions you may have. This will primarily be a trout rod. It could very well see...

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

Again S&S, I can only offer my thanks for your input.

Of the reels mentioned, the Galvin T-6 or Rush Light, and Hardy DD 7000 look like the most likely candidates. The Cheeky Mojo at 7 oz. seems...

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

Thanks again S&S. I haven't read your cheeky review yet, but I will. It would be great if Allen released something that fit what I'm looking for.

Did you know that all of this research I'm doing...

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

Thanks Jaybo,

This is helpful. I'm considering a 10' rod. The extra weight could be a positive. For the rest of it, you've answered some of the questions I had after looking at the Galvin site. I...

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

Thanks S&S!

I appreciate your insight. I really need to spend a little time and get comfortable with some other brands and perhaps learn a little more about their respective drag systems. I also...

If I have that kind of free time, I'll spend it fishing or tying flies! ;-)

Re: Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

Thanks everyone for the input!

My real question, which I think all of you answered quite well, was is there something different or more that I may need in a reel and/or drag system when you start...

Reel Recommendation for 7wt Rod

I'm looking for suggestions on a reel to put on a 7wt (haven't bought the rod yet) that would have an appropriate drag for anything from throwing Kelly Galloup streamers at large trout, to bass, to...

Re: Best TFO Rod for trout (5 WT)

I think you'll like the rod. It will be a great first rod for you. As you develop your stroke and skill, you'll have the ability to be more picky with the next rod you buy. The nice thing about the...

Re: Best TFO Rod for trout (5 WT)

The 9' 5wt BVK is a very fast action rod. The TFO Pro II in the same size is a medium-fast action and may be a better first rod for trout.

Re: Best TFO Rod for trout (5 WT)

If you're going to get a deal from your friend on a TFO rod and you can't cast it before hand, the Pro 2 may be a really good first rod to cut your teeth on so to speak. In a 5wt, it will throw most...

Re: Those clip-on magnifier things...

I own the 20/20 magnetic tippet threader. I won't say it's the only option out there. It does work for me though. I can see well enough to thread size 14 and above flies (with my glasses on). For...

Re: Those clip-on magnifier things...

Hi Ard,

One of the problems with responding from Tapatalk is I don't know how to use the emoticons. If you listened to the guy tell the story, it was really quite funny! :D

I guess the moral...

Re: Those clip-on magnifier things...

I know a guy who bought those clip ons. The way he tells the story, he forgot to take them off his hat while driving. While cresting a hill, the sun caught those clip ons and blinded him for a brief...

Re: Lamson light speed spool question

I know some people don't like the Lamsons, Speedster excluded, due to barreling problems. I've really enjoyed mine though and usually buy a size up from the rod I'm fishing with. This leaves a little...

Re: Nymphing rods

troutchaser,

There are some really good rods listed in this thread. To a large extent, you could just pick one and know you've got the right tool for the job. I really hope though, that you go out...

Lamson light speed spool question

I have the lightspeed hard alloy II. Does anyone know if the size 3 and 3x spools are interchangeable/both work on the same reel? Lamsons website lists the two reels as the same dimensions.

Re: Nymphing rods

+1 to what boomslang said. Add the Scott Radian 10' 4wt to that list as well. Very fine nymphing rod.

Re: Scott Radian

Alligator,

I can't answer your question because I'm not familiar with the Sage rod. In the Radian lineup, the 9' 4 and 5wts are the best. This topic has been discussed in great detail. If you run...

Re: new to fly fishing

Hubcity, have you cast the BVK 5wt? If not, you should try it and maybe some other rods with different actions. The BVK 5wt is a stiff/fast rod. While I own the 8wt version, I chose to pass on the...
