Re: What reel on a fiberglass rod?

I love both my 375 and my 373. The 375 gets used on my Fenwick FF75 (7 1/2' 5wt); the 373 gets used on my Ijuin Yomogi 7" 3wt. These are great looking, simple little reels.

I have the 7' 3wt built up by Shane Gray (Graywolf Rods). It was a birthday...

Re: Looking to get into some new glass

I've got a 7' 3 piece Yomogi (built by Shane Gray). The price might be above your price point at this point, but this is a great rod. It's slower than the Kabuto and just seems to cast itself. Rig it...

Re: New to Fly Fishing; What Would You Do If You Had A Do Over?

Re: How to use a steel

If you're trying to maintain the edge between sharpenings, try using a strop. I just glued a piece of hard leather to a piece of maple. "Color" the leather with chromium dioxide (I might have this...

Re: Kabuto Glass rods

Shane does great work. His attention to detail is fantastic. I love my Yomogi. If you're nervous about the switch take a look at The Fiberglass Manifesto loaner program. Cameron has a number of...

Re: Kabuto Glass rods

If you're not completely wedded to a Kabuto, take a look at the Ijuin Yomogi. I have a 7' 3wt built out by Shane Gray (Graywolf Rods out of MI). My wife bought it for my birthday last October. I got...
